Poor Richard's "Old Lightning Rod" Ale in the C-J.
Read this nice piece in the morning newspaper:
Toast Ben's birth with a mug of Old Lightning Rod, by Susan Reigler (Louisville Courier-Journal).
In Indiana, the only other brewery (I think) that has brewed a Poor Richard's recipe is Lafayette Brewing Company.
Almost a keg was consumed during the special preview on Sunday night, with FOSSILS club members and a delegation from Destinations Booksellers provising good reviews. The best assessment I can offer is that PR's OLR has a dominant malt character, with ample evidence of its molasses and corn adjuncts, and perhaps a hint of oak. The flavor is familiar to modern palates, but different.
