Tag: 夜上海论坛VS Creature Comforts Reclaimed Rye

first_imgEvery once in a while, Creature Comforts, the Athens, Georgia-based brewery that has given the wonderful Tropicalia IPA, releases a different version of Athena, their take on the Berliner Weisse style. Back in the day, the Berliner Weisse was often served with a shot of fruit syrup to even out the tart notes. Creature Comforts eschews the sour for loads of fruit, brewing each version with a different fruit to give the sour a level of sweetness. They just released the latest version, which was brewed with cherries, raspberries and cranberries. It’s wonderful, and you should all go drink it, but I’m more interested in another beer that Creature Comforts just released, Reclaimed Rye. It’s actually a year-round beer, but they’ve only just started packaging it in cans, so for most of us, this is the first chance we’ve had to try it.Reclaimed Rye is an amber, which is about as dull of a beer style as you can get. Don’t get me wrong, the amber has its place. It is the great American gateway beer. New Belgium’s Fat Tire. Highland’s Gaelic Ale. An amber was my first craft beer love and I still reach for one occasionally, but it’s not an exciting style. It’s not dark, it’s not light. It’s not sweet, it’s not bitter. It’s just…amber.But Creature Comforts takes the mild amber to new levels in Reclaimed Rye by aging it on French oak. I think it’s the first oak-aged amber I’ve ever had, and it’s a hell of a trick. You smell the wood on the nose and it affects the sip in some interesting ways, delivering acidic notes that balance the sweetness of the style and giving it a really dry finish. And I mean really dry; The beer practically disappears on your tongue, like a magic trick, which is not something that ambers typically do. Yes, there is some malty sweetness and even a bit of vanilla from the time in the barrel, but it’s safe to say that Reclaimed Rye is like no other amber I’ve ever had.Creature Comforts gave it the Reclaimed Rye name to signal the brewers’ intentions to shed new light on the amber ale as a style. In their own words, they are “reclaiming it back from the ordinary.”I can honestly say, Reclaimed Rye is anything but ordinary. Look for it in six pack cans.http://www.creaturecomfortsbeer.comlast_img read more

Tag: 夜上海论坛VS Guatemalan President Names New Defense Minister

first_img Guatemalan President Álvaro Colom dismissed his defense minister, Abraham Valenzuela, due to the end of his military career, and named Brigadier General Juan José Ruiz in his place, the president announced at a press conference. “The change is strictly due to a military shift, because (Valenzuela) ended his military career,” the head of state commented at the National Palace of Culture, a former seat of government in the center of the Guatemalan capital. Ruiz, who was serving as head of the Defense General Staff, took office upon being sworn in by the president the same evening. The new minister is the fourth to occupy that position in the three years and four months of Colom’s administration so far. Valenzuela served more than two years in the post, the longest period in office. The president also replaced the head of the Presidential Security Administrative Affairs Secretariat, Ricardo Marroquín, whose place was taken by René González. The secretariat is the agency responsible for providing security for the presidents of this Central American country. The dismissals took place after the president ordered the redoubling of security measures in the country in view of possible reactions by the Al Qaeda terrorist group following the death of its leader, Osama bin Laden, in a U.S. attack in Pakistan.
