Amber Tasting Results!

It took a little bit of time to decipher the cryptic symbols, cave drawings, and vauge descriptions of each brew. After about 20 minutes of deliberation, we had a winner ūüôā

Amber Armageddon ended up having a huge turnout. 22 registered beers (including Carl’s homebrew), donkey calls, and beekeepers all made their appearance. I submit for the approval of the midnight society two lists. The first one is in the order of each beer as they were served, and the second is the list from best to worst beers submitted with corresponding scores. Thanks again to Isaac and Stef for hosting. We’ll see you next month for Stouts!
