Odin's Gift

And so, after savoring a couple of long, slow swallows of this beer, trying to detect the juniper, I dug out the salmon from last night’s dinner. I already liked the beer, so I wondered what it would be like with salmon, which I find hard to pair to any beverage. Well, first of all, kudos to my darling because the salmon was even better cold than hot. And, I’ll be dog-goned if that giftly Odin didn’t taste just fine following on the heels (tail?) of the salmon. I’m sold.

The Odin’s Gift is something to be grateful for.
