Christian Moerlein Select Lager

Christian Moerlein Brewing Co

USA

"First American beer to pass the Bavarian Reinheitsgebot Purity Law of 1516." That's what the label proclaims. Here's what I proclaim: BFD. It's 2008. The Reinheitsgebot is about as relevant as the dodo. And how the frig is this pronounced, anyway? Moe-Er-Leen? More-Line? Mower-len? Moe-Erline? Damn Germans. I can only imagine what I'd be calling them if I hadn't recently found out that I'm 1/4 German myself. (I still don't hate the Jews; don't tell anyone.) Anyway, getting to the beer, it was pretty damn good. I had this after I mowed the lawn and while watching Catch and Release, starring Kevin Smith (and some other people). It had a pleasant sweetness to it, not bitter at all. Refreshing after a good mow, and refreshing also seeing Silent Bob actually act.
