Gibby's Pub Blog Updates

I've added a couple new things to the blog... You'll notice at the top of the screen something called "AnswerTips". This is simply a way for you to get more information on anything you see in my blog posts. Just put your cursor on any word and double-click. It's pretty cool, but remember, I didn't write the tip - I only provided the link.

I've also added Google AdSense to my blog and you'll see some more ads popping up now. If you see something you're interested in, by all means click on it -- I make money that way! Yeah! Righteous! I'm retiring soon , you know -- I need the money!

And finally, down at the bottom of the blog, you'll see something called my ZuneCard. As if it wasn't enough to tell you what I'm drinking, and thinking, and where I'm eating -- now I'm telling you what I'm listening to. I really do suffer delusions of self-importance, don't I?

By the way, if you have a Zune account, let me know and I'll add you as a Zune friend...

lol - thanks for reading.

Michelob Winters Bourbon Cask Ale

Here's how Michelob describes it: "During even the coldest of weather, warm up to the smooth, robust taste of our Winter's Bourbon Cask Ale. Full of rich aromas that you find in the winter months, hints of vanilla and flavorful hops, this is a beer that is great for pouring into a large tulip glass and enjoying with friends around a fireplace."
I'd say it was more of a standard Budweiser product with a little more caramel color, a bit more artificial malted and vanilla taste, no real mouthfeel, no head, and really nothing special about it. As usual, Anheuser-Busch has taken a good idea and diluted it down in an attempt to get mass appeal. Am I the only one who thinks that's a silly thing to do with a small batch (relatively speaking), seasonal beer?
Now, if they dropped the words "Cask" and "Ale" from the name, maybe...
