Tootjainfo: "Hailing out of Little Village, Chicago, and with a strict Irish background, the MacDunnes had been patriots since the day the first family member set her foot on American soil. Male MacDunnes had been volunteering for every war they possibly could. So, the day that young Garret turned 18 it was both expected and with a natural pride that he enlisted to fight for his country in the Vietnam war as part of the 1st Battalion, 9th Marines. As a private he was hailed through some of the fiercest battles of the war: Khe Sanh, Hamburger Hill, the Tet Offensive you name it – Garret was there. Wounded several times but strictly alive unlike many of his fighting compadres. Actually, he’d lost so many that his battalion was nicknamed “The Walking Dead” due to their extreme casualty rate. When Garret returned to Chicago after three years in hell, he was utterly disillusioned and soon became a very outspoken voice against the war. He was a prominent member of the anti-war movement, and taking up music he was famous for his long concerts for peace played on a mobile organ with a distinct Ray Manzarek inspiration. Part of his fame could clearly be attributed to the strange fact that he would always perform without pants, due to a severe skin rash he brought home from the war. This collaboration beer made with one of Chicago’s finest craft breweries is named in honor of this true American patriot and peace activist.
Ummmm, IBU 15 IPA'l??? See pole ju isegi mitte APA tase?
Keskmist kasvu pikakaelaline pudel, sildil istub hipioreli taga palja tagumikuga kodanik. Erkvalge vaht täidab ligi pool klaasist, kuid kaob üsna kiirelt. Õlle värvus - kirkalt hele-helekollane. Hapukas aroom meenutab sidrunheina.
Esmamekk on kergeke ja magusakas. Keskmaitse teeb üsna järsu liigutuse mõrkjamale poolele, kuid see on vesisevõitu. Lõppmaitse mängib juba päris kenasti hapukas-mõrkja greibise noodiga. Järelmekk kaob üsna kiirelt, jättes maha vaid vähese mõrkja mälestuse mis hajub nagu jalajälg tuuliselt rannaliivalt.
Kerge, isegi vesise kehaga, mõõdukalt karboniseerunud paletiga, magusakas-mõrkjas-hapukas-mõrkja buketiga HEAL tasemel rüübe. Selline hea kerge kulistamisekraam, mis samas ei tee kuigivõrd mööndusi maitse arvelt.
