I had my first Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project beer, Jack D'Or, near the end of a lazy Fourth of July. I took electronic notes detailing my impressions about the beer's fine qualities. A few days later when I went back to write the review I realized that I typed over my original notes, and could not figure out how to retrieve them. I tried to rewrite them from memory, but it's just not the same. I did not want buy and another Jack D'Or and try to recreate my impressions, because I've come to believe that "atmosphere" plays a significant role in beer appreciation. I'll get to enjoy another Jack D'Or after I post this truncated review.
