Music + Alcohol = L.U.V.


Beverage: Full Sail amber ale

The payoff: You're right--vodka would've been far more appropriate for these freak-rockin' Russkies. But Full Sail's warm glow was heavy enough to march alongside Auktyon's staccato rhythms, yet light enough to bounce with the band's poppier swing. Regardless, as the reed player squealed out liquid-rubber runs on a variety of saxophones and the drummer drilled out machine-gun rat-a-tat fills, anything would've tasted good. Simple rule of thumb: Unique music requires no added input of the liquid sort. Rating: A
