It is a bold statement for me to declare a favorite beer but Pliney the Elder epitomizes my favorite style: bright, hoppy, floral, spicy, and a golden/orange color.
I hadn't ever tried this until today after I finally got lucky enough for my local grocery store to have 3 bottles in stock (which I bought all of). Perhaps the hunt for this elusive beer is clouding my judgment and you may find me changing my mind after drinking the other 2 bottles over time, but for now, if I had to pick one beer that I could point to and say: "out of all the styles and types of beers, this is my favorite"
I've been looking for over a year after hearing about this brew and it was worth the wait. That said, what the hell? Why so hard to get? brew more!
Next step: find this beer on tap somewhere
