Below is my brother and his fiancé's thoughts on the bottled version of Archer & Armstrong American Pale Ale. The beer had a good
"drinkability" in that it was the type of beer that you could have
several of and not get sick of the taste. The medium bodied nature of the beer
made it so it wasn't overpowering in any one aspect and created a nice balance.
The hops were noticeable but not to the point where they felt like it was
overdoing it. There seemed to be a slight citrus tinge
that was a pleasant surprise.
Overall, we felt this was a solid beer
that is a good example of a quality microbrew.
My thoughts are that the one night only draft was better for someone who very rarely drinks. Though I have to agree with my brother and his future wife when it comes to the taste of both the draft and bottled versions. However, I think the draft had a slightly nutty taste in draft form which was probably due to the foam.
This issue is fast paced, and for the most part okay in the visuals. However, there are two major obvious failings and two subtle failings within the narrative. The initial flaw is how San Francisco was supposedly wrecked in issue one to the point that previous apocalypses such as Season 8's are not as a big a deal in comparison. Yet Rebekah Isaacs for whatever reason fails to indicate any such level of destruction. In fact the city of San Francisco looks completely fine when the Dragon is summoned to attack it again.
Next is the factor of the big bad being a cyborg witch who is also the government's press secretary. Not only is this shades of Adam/Maggie Walsh/The Mayor/Willow/Amy rolled into one villain I don't believe we were ever shown this character before. Even if she made any cameos they were never properly pointed out, or set-up as clues.
As for the subtle failings they are both found in how "thousands" of women are de-powered in…
Opinion: I don't condone what Kai Cole has alleged Joss Whedon did. Also I believe that Buffy The Vampire Slayer is more about the various fans views of it than Joss Whedon's or any corporate entities views. Thus I will continue to review Buffy stories, including comics, but after Season 11 ends I will be trade waiting. Said collected editions will then be read and reviewed at whatever point I choose.
Warning Of Spoilers!
Almost nothing happens except some thinly veiled real world political commentary and the Scooby Gang learning a minuscule bit more about the baddie. Oh and now there is a ticking clock in the form of a magic redirecting satellite launch. So essentially we still may or may not know who the seasonal big bad is, but we definitely know the mystery is lacking clues for the finale's set-up. Also I found the pacing is still glacial.
The previously mentioned flaws are not helped by two major art problems. First the art has a stupid moment of Spike biting a m…
