Self described as:
A stupendous Midland Mild Ale whose epic malt infused acts of sweet caramel sensations leave all who pour it speechless. Its roasted notes of sun soaked grain are appearing in the Summer Variety Show in a not to be missed engagement.

OK, well the beer didn;'t hurt when it came to the POG playing.
Ebulum- elderberry black ale
It was actually fairly amazing, I'm pretty sure there was still some druid shit in there. Upon first sip it was gross. Second sip provided a more... intersting flavor... The thrid sip was almost pleasant. By the time we had drank most of a bottle, it was great. Def not a natural beer.
Introduced to Scotland by Welsh Druids in the 9th Century, elderberry ale was part of the Celtic Autumn Festivals where the ale was passed round for the people of the village. This recipe was taken from a 16th Century record of domestic drinking in the Scottish Highlands. In medieval times elderberries were used in various concoctions and are known to be high in fruit tannins and oils. It is a rich black ale with fruit aroma, soft texture, roasted grain and red wine flavours, with a gentle finish.
Ingredients Malted barley bree, elderberries, roasted oats & barley and hops.

But for voting purpouses, here are the three choices I'm eyeing and their meanings if applicable.
This is Bismillah (or Basmala) It's Arabic for "In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful" a phrase that opens every chapter in the Quran. (I dont know why the picture turned out all black, but if you click on it, it shows normal)
This is an ogham inscription that reads "A blessing on the soul of L." Convienently my name is L. Ogham is an early medieval alphabet used to represent Old Irish. It was found on the Buckquoy spindle-whorl in Orkney, Scotland.

Unfortunatly the combination of my shit camera and the 90% humidity left almost all of our pictures gray and gross. Sorry.
A large part of today's activites involved chasing 3 or 4 Great Blue Heron's around the lake. Trying to sneak up on one while floating in an erratically drifting bright orange kayak was next to impossible.
(After awhile of putting my camera back and forth on the floor, I started putting it in my bathing suit top, thus this is a boob-eye view of the lake.)
