Logsdon Farmhouse Ales – Helles For Sinners = 4.7 Smokestacks out of 7

Another really nice night illuminating Marie with fire.

What’s a helles lager? This is a helles lager. A helles lager is a lighter beer; helles is German for light, and this one’s got a bit of smoke, which is not normal, but it seems normal to me. Sometimes you lose track of what’s normal. Does it matter? I argue that it doesn’t. Does a strongman contemplate what is normal strength, and adjust his performance to align with normal? Well, maybe when opening a bag of chips, but not otherwise. Let’s not trifle with being normal. Let this be your encouragement to follow your path, and I hope that path is not painful. Sinners are welcome here. Helles For Sinners overall score = 4.7 smokestacks out of 7. Chips all over the damn place.
