Tasting Vignettes: My First Weekly Feature

April 13, 2011

I finally know what I want to do when I grow up. It is my dream to be an auteur of tasting notes. It is perfect because I can drink beer and use phrases like “storming the palate” or “creamy head” and no one can say anything about it because (a) there is no such thing as a touring tasting note writer and (b) these things are generally anonymous.

The author, at home

Of course now that I’ve written those two things I’m immediately sure my tasting notes should have a byline, be compiled and published, and then I should go on a book tour and do readings while drinking the beer in question! ZOMG! I’m bursting with new-found direction!

Well, while I’m getting ahead of myself, please enjoy a sample of the work that I do. If you like what you read you can contact my agent by first becoming my agent then having an internal dialogue with yourself about how the girl could go all the way…

Dogfish Head  Aprihop
A frisky brew, the apricot sneaks up on those bitter hops telling them to get over it: it’s Spring! Let it play with pork dishes.

Rogue Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout
Rich and smooth with a killer finish of smoke and coffee. It’s like first class dinner on the Titanic (except no one dies).

New Holland Dragon’s Milk
Wait… did I order whiskey?

    I liked this so much that I retweeted it to my 7 Twitter followers (YES, all 7 of them) to share the post!

    MMM…………. Aprihop.
