My guess is Alicia Silverstone, since she acted in it (I'm ashamed to admit I know that).

BigDaddyTom,
I tried that Deschutes Mirror Pond Pale Ale yesterday. Very good, but I prefer the Stone Pale Ale or the pale at my local brewery. The Mirror Pond had a great malt body; a noticeable, yet not too assertive, hop presence; and a clean finish. About halfway through the bottle, though, that citric tartness of the Cascade hops was all I could taste. I don't really like Cascade hops that much.
I'll try the Stout next time.
Did you ever notice any difference in your beers by cracking the malt yourself as opposed to having the store do it? I always bought in bulk, so the first batch would use freshly cracked (previous day usually) malt and the next batch or two would use stored stuff.
Is that malt mill a little dinky one or a big one?

Hey bigwill,

I can't disagree with your perceptions of the Mirror Pond. It always tastes fresh, balanced and reliable to me, but it does definitely present the hops in a non-nuanced way. The Stout and Porter are just super.

I always cracked my grain the night before.

The maltmill is not commercial-grade; it is for the homebrewer. I'll snap a pic if I have a chance. Nicely crafted American product, but homebrew shops are now more able to accommodate this kind of service than they were 10-15 years ago. Back then, I was buying sacks of grain as a co-op venture with my club because there was no credible local retail homebrew presence.

I'm thinking that If I tell you guy's I really like MGD.............you may come down on me a little. What can I say, I like the stuff which is odd for me as I don't like a lot of US made beer.........or Canadian for that matter. I tend to drink MGD, Corona and every now and then Sleemans.

MGD is not bad. It's a slamming type of beer. Avalanche is one of my favorite then Blue Moon white Belgian Ale.

I personally think you should drink what you like. I don't think less of folks who choose to drink bud light for instance. It only bothers me when they refuse to *try* other beers.
