Booze Geek – Mad Anthony and Pirate Movies

By Dylan Gonzalez

Beer: Mad Anthony APA

Brewery: Erie Brewing Co.

Today, I delve into a bottle of Eerie Brewing Company’s Mad Anthony APA.  Unfortunately, it is about as lifeless as the skeleton adorning the bottle.

Mad Anthony is amber in color, with a slightly pink hue, and produces a large head that disappears rather quickly.  Its carbonation is easily seen and it is highly active.

I gave it a whiff, I was surprised by much it reminded me of a pilsner rather than a pale ale.  It was lightly hoppy and malty but nothing too strong.

When I got finally got around to drinking it, I was shocked when it tasted like…well, beer.  Sure, there were some light malts and a sort of surgery water taste to it, but other than that, I did not find much in the way of flavor.  It really reminded me of a cheap, domestic beer.  Even down to the texture it was similar, with a watery quality and some carbonation.

Overall, for a craft beer, this was a letdown.  It was largely boring and uninteresting, offering little in the way of good craft beer qualities.

What to Drink This To:

If you must drink this to something, then I would suggest, as the artwork shows one, a pirate movie.  I will admit that I am not much of a fan of the Pirates of the Caribbean films, but I like the first film enough.  Heck, if you are really feeling it, throw on Peter Pan.

Dylan Gonzalez happens to love beer and comic books and luckily found a place to write about both because he has no idea how to actually make money in the real world.  He lives in a cave in New Jersey.
