The Kiltie Band of York drank Drambuie after marching. Perhaps because hops don’t grow in Scotland. Still that’s no excuse for making a weak brew that couldn’t blow its way out of a paper bag. The Railbender does neither, never gathering much steam. Instead it lights up for only an instant, before disappearing just as quickly into a dark, reddish cloud.
On the other side of the power spectrum, I am adding in another one of those daily drinkers, although this guys is a veteran. Beer Drinker Rob describes himself as a “Writer of sarcastic parables. Drinker of great beer.” and asks you to “Pay attention!” in his Daily Beer Review. Rob didn’t think much of this beer either, calling it, after many words, one-dimensional. The Daily Beer Review is multi-dimensional. Rob has advertising on his site, I mean, beyond an unusually packed load of self-promotion (what is the web for anyhow?): Beer Drinker Rob has real ads.
Rob says that he’s from a rinky-dink town in Central Pennsylvania. Right, I’m from Central PA too, but Rob has doing this for umpteen years, has a link for paypal donations, a complete profile, links to crap on amazon.com: and ads. I’m thinking, what the hell. With this humble site, I am getting that feeling like I had my head to the train tracks, listening, when the engine came through. Or maybe that’s the Drambuie speaking.
rating: 20%, without the mead from Scotland.
