Episode 144: Smells Like Burgeon!


This show was recorded on August 21st, 2017 and released to our Patrons on September 15th, 2017.  Since Beagle is on vacation, we wanted to release this as our last episode of 2017 for all our listeners.  We’ll catch you all next year with new episodes!

We wanted to give some love to our Patrons and decided to start with a special episode.  We put together 11 beers, 10 hazy and one not hazy (for a palate cleanser) for a few Patrons (and Travis Hudson) to drink blindly.  We are joined by the aforementioned Travis Hudson (indiebeerluv619), Ray (craftbeeray), Brian (0bscured), and Roger (xomegagold).

We wanted to see what would happen if beer drinkers rate beers based on only taste and the look of the beer, not based on labeling or the brewery who brews it.  The participants did not know the beers until the very end, however, they were given score sheets to help them with the appearance of the beers and to write down flavor profiles.  The scores they gave the beers were based on the Untappd scoring, 1-5.
