Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 148: Fat Yak Pale Ale
Fak Yak Pale Ale

Pours a dark golden colour with lots of carbonation visible. The head is good and foamy, and fades away very slowly.

First Sip: Slightly malty and a bit grainy, with a mild bread and citrus flavour. Hops is medium and lingers for quite a while. Lots of carbonation tingle on the tongue, but it's a bit foamy. Mouth-feel is thin. Beer burp is nice.

I'm not sure about this one. It's okay and drinkable, but it's not notable. Not one to rave about. It is very much a BBQ beer. A bit ordinary, but certainly more interesting than Viking. Maybe my problem is that I am drinking this on a cool day. I think it would taste better if I were hot. Farmhouse Cheddar does help. Cheese always helps.

The description reminds me very much of an entry in Bradygames "Official Strategy Guide" for Railroad Tycoon 3. Talking about the electric locomotive (or as LK puts it "motor") "It doesn't do anything exceptionally well but it does everything fairly well.

(The book itself I actually regard as mediocre - large pictures used to pad out the pages and too little actual content).
