This week we've sampled beers you can try yourself on Saturday at Local Brews, Local Grooves at The Fillmore Silver Spring.

We end with a beer I've been looking forward to trying every since Heavy Seas announced that it was coming. A straight ahead American lager in honor of the man himself, Cal Ripken Jr.

Look- Little darker than the straw yellow you'd expect from an American lager

Smell-Yup, barley all up in my nose

Taste-Sweet, sweet malt first on the lips and pretty much throughout. 

Mouth-Light bodied. Refreshing with a sweet, smooth finish.

Overall-There isn't much to write up about this beer. It's just a excellent play on what Americans love...lagers! It's a perfect beer for a summer day at the yard and worthy of the Ripken name.
