Hoe-garden and White Ale

We have dark ales; we have blonde ales. We have pale ales and Downtown Brown ales. But have you ever heard of a white ale?

The coloring suggests lack of flavour in my opinion. But hell, it's got its own cup!

It exists. Who knew? Having recieved part of my college education from Sierra Nevada, where I studied the benefits, pitfalls and all things related to beer, I was in a bit of disbelief  when the bar man told me that Hoegaarden was in the white ale family. And yes, it does say Hoe-garden – Great name!

It is lighter than a blonde in both color and taste and is served with a lime in it. Frankly, it’s a little dull for me. It lacks that bitter beer taste that I’ve come to enjoy. Thank you Sierra Nevada – but not for Celebration. This beer also has an odd smell of lemon despite the facts that it has a lime in it and is made with some part of an orange.

However, I am pleased to say that it sports 5% volume, which I will credit this slit buzz with. Definitely worth checking out, but I think I prefer my beer to have a bit more color to it.

Here are other reviews.

If Marcia Miller had to pick up everything and leave, then she'd make sure to grab a few things before she left. First, the duffel bag is a must, followed by her laptop and iPod. She grabs her journal next, along with every CD she owns - just in case. Miller pulls off the pictures and concert tickets that adorn her walls. A towel is going to be handy too - this she learned from "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." Finally, she grabs a handful of pens and her trusty AP Stylebook, throws her duffel back over her back and picks up her purse. Closing the door behind her, she leaves her apartment, heads down the stairs and... Well, Miller heads to your office because she's ready to do a job. She is ready to move at a moment's notice, write what needs to be written, edit what needs to be edited, promote what you think the world needs to know about. Miller's got the personality, the skills and the spunk to succeed in any situation. She's not afraid of trying new things or getting her feet wet. Her moto: If an opportunity doesn't present itself, then create one.
