I tried Samuel Adams Boston Lager® with homemade pizza topped with garden veggies. As is proper for pizza and beer (and to make up for using the word "effervescence" in my last review), I had it from the bottle, and cold.

I can't comment on head, or colour, as it was hidden in a brown bottle. The taste started out malty, a bit sweet, a bit tart, and with a hoppy aroma. Down the bottle, it got a bit more bitter and less aromatic, and stayed malty and somewhat tart. The carbonation wasn't obtrusive at all, but it was there. I liked it; I think it would be a good refreshing beer, and it can certainly hold its own with hot pizza. It seems like the midpoint between the Scotch-Irish Stewart's Session Ale (aromatic, complex and bright) and a Labatt Bleue (in terms of alcohol and punchiness of flavour), but more tart and malty than either. I hear that Sam Adams is popular in universities out west of Toronto; it seems to me they have good taste in beer out there.



Also, now we can all stop worrying about women with face coverings threatening our airports: there's a bigger threat to airport safety out there, channeling equal parts Stockwell Day trying to look cool on a toy vehicle and Helena Guergis being erratic in an airport while driving unannounced across an airstrip. Is there a fixed election date coming soon?

If there was a fixed election date, he'd just ignore it. He makes the rules, right?

I am a little shocked that he seems to be having fun at something. I thought his species fed off human misery and found "fun" as poisonous as true love.

A VW bug? Did I miss something?

Oops, wrong link. The VW was from the comments of this

To be fair to Stockwell, he did look cooler on a jetski than Steve does riding an ATV on paved ground with a helmet on.

I do so love how this article has 170 comments thus far while the one about the Pakistan flood has all of 11.

Perhaps it was just too much time spent at Concordia, but I've been given to wondering how many signatures it takes to recall a federal minority government...
