  • Trader Joe's Vintage Ale 2007
    rated 4.1 12 years ago

    Like other vintages, this is an ale I turn to around the holidays when I am looking for something less hoppy than my usual selections. It has a nice roasted malt tast and finishes well. Poured with a nice head, poured into a polycarb pilsner glass. Definitely pick a couple of these up when you are grabbing some cheese at Trader Joe's. They pair well together.

    By far, my favorite beer ever. The problem with it is this: It's brewed in limited quantities and it's not cheap. Buying a case at a time is almost required, because I'm just not able to leave it alone in so that it ages. It always gets consumed, unless I have my buddy lock it up in his wine storage unit at the winebar far away from me. The taste is very complex, and needs to be served in a proper glass. Not too cold, either! I find my Riedel Cognac Snifter works excellent for this and allows the intricate lacing to really show itself off. Taste is malty and caramel and improves with age. The 2006 is drinking very well now. The '08 was a bit young, but I just couldn't resist the temptation.
