145. Allagash White (draft)
Went to a Portland Red Claws game last night with one of insurance companies and we stopped at the Dogfish Cafe in Portland for dinner before the game. They had a decent selection of beer including Allagash White on-tap so I decided to give this a try as I enjoyed it from the bottle and draft beer always seems better. The beer came with an orange slice which helps to enhance the already fruity aroma of the beer but I quickly removed and set it aside. Minimal head but nice lacing on the glass. Color is the typical of the style a cloudy pale yellow. Taste and feel are very similar to the bottle version but there is just something about draft beer that makes it better than from a bottle. Maybe it is enjoying the beer outside of my home with good food or the social aspect of drinking in a bar or restaurant. If you like this style of beer and Allagash is an option when you go out give it a try – you will not be disappointed.
