I finally got to try the whIIIte PAle, the unicorn of beers known as Pliny the Younger. It's a strong beer (11%), and you can taste it. Like it's father, Pliny the Elder, it's a flavorful, tasty beer. It has been hailed as a holy grail, and I do not believe it deserves that moniker. It is definitely a good beer, something that all good beer drinkers should enjoy, but not something to go crazy trying to find.

- Totally agree. Find yourself some Hopslam or Expo...both better beers. Even Alpine Bad Boy I find better.Mar 7, 2012
- I would say PtE is better as well.Mar 7, 2012
- Did they limit you to just one? They said they were going to but I was wondering if they enforced it?Mar 7, 2012
- , I'm pretty sure they did limit folks to one. They were vigilant about not serving a beer until they saw you had a ticket. One was enough for me, as I did need to drive home, and $8 per half pour is a bit pricey.
, yes, there are better beers out there. The Full Pint had a good article about hype vs reality:
