Trip to the Fridge – MacTarnahan’s Lipstinger Farmhouse Ale

January 14, 2010

We purchased a MacTarnhan’s Lipstinger Farmouse Ale back on Halloween when we made a visit to the Pyramid Alehouse . We opened it not long after that, I took notes, and then failed to tell you about it. It was the 22 ounce bottle logo, name and description that peaked our interest on this one. Although it really didn’t sting the lips, I have to admit I kind of liked it. It was oddly refreshing.You could taste the pepper at the end, but it wasn’t  a real “wow” that’s pepper.

Lip Stinger is an effervescent and rustic farmhouse ale. This limited release ale is fermented with cracked peppercorn to introduce a spicy nose and warming mouth feel that will deliver a flavor sensation that is endlessly interesting.
