In any case, according to a recent article in Prospect Magazine, about 15% of Caucasians possess this miraculous variant, which was named after Winston Churchill because of his life-long love for alcohol and his legendary consumption. But how legendary was his consumption, really? It has been argued that his omnipresent scotch-and-water was but a smidgeon of the strong stuff liberally laced with the weak, and that the man used his reputation to his advantage, but certainly knew his limits. Nevertheless, it's truly inspiring to see that science has finally acknowledged that some good can come to the creative mind from a modest tipple or two.
As I pondered these heavy thoughts, my tastebuds were hard at work on the Pillagers Pale. It has a very nutty, roasted malt flavor that does a good job masking the hops. I would suggest that it's perhaps too good a job, and that there are certain aspects of this beer that depart from what one would usually expect from a good pale ale. However, it is not a bad beer, and if one is ready for the unexpected, it can certainly be readily enjoyed.
