Two Disappointments, One Evening
Posted by Bull E. Vard
I sat down to watch our President deliver the State of the Union address tonight. Of course, our President is my first disappointment this evening. Then I cracked open a Flying Dog Pale Ale that I picked up today in a Flying Dog variety pack. For some reason, I've always avoided Flying Dog beers. It has always seemed to me that they were relying on cutesy labels instead of focusing on the beer. It's true that I do sometimes pick out a beer based on the label, yet I've ALWAYS avoided the Flying Dog beers. It turns out my first instinct was right, Malcolm Gladwell would be proud, Flying Dog was my Blink moment and the second disappointment in the evening. This beer SUCKS! It's almost undrinkable. I'm adding it to my list which I guess we'll call "Bull Droppings". Flying Dog Pale Ale will join Hamms and Sam Adams Cherry Wheat on the "Bull Droppings" list.
