144. Everybody’s Brewing – Daily Bread Common Beer Draft

As I mentioned in my last post, it was a good day – a tour of the Widmer Brothers Brewery, the Full Sail Riverplace smoker, and a nice dinner and a few more Full Sail beers at McCormick & Schmick’s.  My friend/coworker and I headed up the Riverplace walkway to a place she was familiar with for a few more drinks.  There was an incredible view of the river and bridge while I enjoyed a Daily Bread Common from Everybody’s Brewing.

It was clear and had a straw-yellow color.  The head was bright white and it had some nice lacing as I drank it.  There was a slight bready – almost cracker-like – aroma to it.

The body was fairly light, and it was crisp and refreshing, with a slightly creamy mouthfeel.  There was a light, almost pilsner-like maltiness up front, which gave way to a nice almost woody flavor.  It reminded me a bit of a musky type woodiness, like wormwood, but it was just the right amount of it – it was still clean, crisp, and refreshing.

If I had to pair this with a food, I think I’d choose a dish I’ve had once – a cedar plank seabass – where the seabass is cooked in the oven on a plank of cedar so it picks up some of the woody flavors.

Overall, I thought this was a very good beer and a nice representation of its style.  I haven’t had much fresh Anchor Steam here in the midwest, but I must admit that I liked this better than the Anchor Steam in the bottle from my local liquor store.

My Rating: ★★★☆☆
