Wow, I'm going to get my ass over there! Thank you. I agree with your assertion that the more classic beers don't always get the recognition they deserve. Julia, want to weigh in here?

Peter and Mark, it's a great point. I absolutely love paler classic German styles such as maibock, helles, and kolsch; though I don't know anyone who drinks exclusively onyx-hued beers as Mark mentions, I do know several who look at a lighter-colored beer and immediately think "macro." That's sad. If drinkers ignored lighter-looking beers in this year's Beers of the Year lineup, they'd miss (at the very least) Horseheads Hot-Jala-Heim, one of the coolest and most original brews I tried this year.

I will look for this beer to try. Although I do not drink alot of beer and more on wine, I like the lighter ale. This beer sounds like my kind! Thanks for the review.
