Anchor California Lager

Holey Moley Batman, it is a hot one here on the left coast.  100 degrees in the shade, as the saying goes.  I've retreated to the cool, dark confines of the Pinhead Studios to play some pinball, listen to some tunes and have a nice refreshing brew. 

I've chosen a six pack of Anchor California Lager for the refreshment and this one is really nice.  Not a hop bomb, not even close.  Just a crisp and smooth lager that has a bit of some hop backbone.  This one is new to the lineup over at the historic Anchor Brewing site in San Francisco.  Added last year to the Anchor lineup, this one celebrates the first California Lager brewed up back in 1876 by the Boca Brewing company up in Truckee (where there was the ice needed for lagering).  Check the story link below.  If you are in the mood for a light refreshing summer beer that won't overpower you (4.9% alcohol - yes a "session beer") then I would highly recommend it.

2011 Tuella Douro Redux

Uncorked a Portuguese Red this afternoon.  I had tried this one back in October of last year, but found a bad cork.  Imagine my happiness when I popped the cork on this one, sniffed it and just a wonderful aroma of blackberries and plums emerged.  I'm happy to say that this bottle was fine and thanks go out to Dick and Lino for suggesting that I give this wine another try.

This wine reminds me a bit of a old vine Zinfandel, which is a great thing.  Red fruits out front, but a nice deeply seated earthiness and spice that you are left with in the smooth finish.  So glad I tried another bottle.

The Douro region of Portugal is centered on the Douro River, in the northeastern corner of Portugal.  This region produces most of the grapes used in Port, but there are many grapes that are vinified into non-fortified wines, including this one.  Terraced vineyards along the Douro River - yes - someday I will make it to Portugal.

This wine is a bargain at around $7 at my local Trader Joes.  Portuguese Red's - ya gotta love 'em.
