New Belgium 2° Below Ale

New Belgium Brewing Company

USA

I've decided: I don't like it. I've tried it several times, twice as the first beer of the day, including right now. As I sit here about half-way through the pint, I've had to come to terms with the fact that I just don't like this beer. Instead of some dense, chewy, mahogany hops explosion, I get something vaguely amber, thin-looking, and mildly hopped, with that intensely annoying bready/biscuity flavor so many of NB's beers have. I may struggle through a few more sips, but I'll probably wind up pouring the rest of it out. Too bad. At least the beer fridge is still well stocked with Celebration and a few other odds and ends...
