JoePa Getting His Own Beer

Read this story on a Husker site I frequent.

"...Jay Paterno, who coached as an assistant at his father's side for 17 years, has joined forces with Upper St. Clair lawyer Mark Dudash, a 14-year veteran of the brewing industry, to start the Paterno Legacy Series of beer. The brew, a premium American lager available in 12-ounce cans, is set to roll off the production lines at Latrobe's City Brewing Co. in cases and 12-packs in time for tailgating season."

I'll preview the beer in a style similar to Beer Advocate's reviews.

Appearance: Pours OK; looks like dehydrates player's gold urine.

Smell: Not very hoppy but there is a hint of dirt, grass, and used jock straps. It also smells of desperation from a son who cannot find employment in his profession due to him being a substandard football coach who kept his job because of his father and now must license the family name for him to make a living.

Taste: Not surprisingly bitter, like a fanbase and family who are in denial. There is an aftertaste of the loss of a child's innocence.

Mouthfeel: No comment due to Sandusky double entendre

Overall: Nothing really good in this product, but some will find it worth the price.

F in most of the USA.

B- in certain areas of Pennsylvania and Nittany Nation.

It makes a great shower beer.

Nicely done.

I actually found this beer to have a definite and pronounced impact of flavor, but after the temperature of the glass rose the flavor went totally vacant. However 2 years later, the beer's flavor was restored to my palate.

Hey, I think we might be onto something with college coach-branded beers.

Woody Hayes Double IPA: It'll punch you in the throat!

Bear Bryant Crimson Ale: Refreshing in the summer heat!

Nick Saban's Pale Lager: You'll kick back with 6!

Urban Meyer IPA: Anything goes!

Bobby Bowden Bock: Don't get cheated out of flavor!

Lou Holtz's High Gravity: You'll get schlosched!

Tom Osborne's American Light Lager: An easy-drinking option! You'll run for more!

I was due for a good one. Now as long as we make sure that beer never gives profits to the Muscular Dystrophy Association, we should be alright.
