On Tap is brought to you by Rosati’s Pizza, 701 S. Gregory, Urbana.

Shane couldn’t be here today, so pinch hitting once again is Sissy, our beer ringer.  This time we’ve gone back to the Ale Asylum for their Ambergeddon brew.

We were immediately surprised by this beer.  With a name like Ambergeddon, we anticipated an amber lager on steroids, and maybe that’s what we’ve got.  But there’s a bunch of hops in there as well.  But the hops aren’t just thrown in there, they are blended really well to accentuate the solid amber ale that is the back bone of this brew.  There’s the flavor and bitterness of the hops, the maltyness and breadiness of an amber.  There’s a bunch going on here and we all liked it.

My Rating:  7.5

Sissy’s Rating:  8.5

Ryan’s Rating:  7.7

We felt you couldn’t go wrong by pairing this up with Rosati’s Veggie Deluxe Double Dough pizza.

The woman who as a child was the basis for the Beatles song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" is gravely ill. It was thought by many at the time that the psychedelic song from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band was a paean to LSD because of the initials in the title, but it was actually based on a drawing that John Lennon's young son Julian brought home from school. He told his father the drawing was of Lucy in the sky with diamonds. Lucy Vodden, now living in Surrey just outside of London _ drifted apart after schoolyard days, but they have gotten back in touch as Lennon has tried to help Vodden cope with Lupus, a life-threatening disease.
