What Beers Did You Drink Today? Or Yesterday? (Part 2)


Recommended Posts

I'll go first.  Yesterday I drank Corona during happy hours, and later a Rogue Shakespeare Stout.

The former: Always good and thirst-quenching in the Florida heat.  Let the sun shine....

The latter:  Mmmm...  :wub:

All of them :D

Kasteel Cru, a fine lager made with Champagne yeast. This is probably the lightest and most refreshing beer I have ever had. It is so unique, it almost tastes like a beer at the start and then finishes like a champagne. Expensive stuff but worth the price.

Southern Tier Gemini, a blend of ST's Unearthy and ST's unfiltered Hoppe.

A very nice beer with quite a complexity. There is a lot going on here between the yeast, malts, and hops resulting in a beer with citrus hop aroma and a sweet, fruity maltiness. However, it is too sweet side for my tastes and, for a IPA, the hops are certainly playing second fiddle to the malts.

Maui Brewing Coconut Porter

Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA

Maui Brewing Big Swell IPA

Very good stuff.

The Coconut porter has a lovely coconut taste, very nice beer.

DFH is not as fresh as it possibly could be out here on the west coast... but still nice beer. For a malt forward imperial ipa, not much better out there.

Big swell is a nice "restrained" ipa. I say "restrained" because being on the west coast, ipas that aren't pretty dry and ridiculously hoppy aren't that common. I can imagine it being awesome on the beach, very smooth drinking, pleasantly hoppy without being overbearing.

Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA

Wow! I guess in the land of PTE and Ruination, 90min comes across as being "malt forward." Wish we got the hop bombs you guys get out there.

Just had a Stone wine barrel aged 07.07.07 Epic over the weekend. Crazy interesting beer. A unique sweet and sour, grapey tartness hanging on a light, sweet malt backbone. Virtually no hops, but I'm not so sure hops and wine would get along together anyway.

Possibly... I'm a little suspicious that the distributor in our area isn't good at getting these things fresh... I've had a couple that were more hoppy than others. I'm relatively certain DFH 90 wouldn't hit the hoppiness of PTE or Ruination.... but I'm pretty sure it's hoppier than I usually taste it. Oh well.

edit: I should say... the distributor in my area isn't terribly good at selling craft beer - so it probably sits around for a while.

Dogfish Head bottles are stamped with a "Bottled on" date, yellow ink "dots" on the neck. Unfortunately, the dating can be wiped off rather easily with a damp rag (I'm sure that'd be accidental- you know, while a retailer was "dusting"). If you're not seeing the date, I'd pass on a Delaware beer sold in California. In neighboring NJ, I won't buy any 90 Minute or 60 Minute ales that are more than 3 months past the bottling date.

I can't drink alcohol but am active on the Amber list, and one of the members posted the following link earlier today.

Fossil Fuels Beer

I thought someone might be interested.

"There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett

Just kidding. Most were part of a Beer Judging Certification Program class. All were just tastes, so no real alcohol intake.

A very nice strong ale, malty and memorable. Looks nice in the glass. . .

Theree beers made it into the beer fridge last week:

Flying Fish Oktoberfish, denser, richer, maltier than last year, with a discernable hop bite, a very nice Festbier indded!

Saranac Pumpkin Ale, my beer of choice with a hot plate of nachos; subdued spicing, nice round mouthfeel with nice amlt profile

Yards Brawler, the brewery's session beer, a roasty, toasty brown mild that satisfies greatly, and goes well with steak, beef stew, even maple-glazed grilled salmon!

yesterday at one of my regular pubs: St Feuillien Saison (delicious!), De Leckere Organic Pilsner (okay),

Flying Dog Doggie Style Classic Pale Ale (any more 'aromatic' then it would be soap. i'm allergic to cascade hops.), and Jopen Gerstebier (a new very nice and refreshing barley beer by Jopen).

My preferred current daily tipple is Greene King IPA, brewing beer since 1799, I will read you the blurb on the can.

An award winning, perfectly balanced, premium quality beer brewed in Bury St Edmunds Suffolk.

Award winning Green Kind IPA is easy to drink, making it the perfect choice for any occasion.

The characteristic hoppy taste and aroma comes from the use of Challenger and First Gold hops, which are combined with pale and crystal malts to create this perfectly balanced, premium quality beer.

I'll drink to that

Cheers :biggrin:

      Picked this up this morning, not because I wanted it, just to add to my collection of silliness.
       

       
       
       
      Love the brewery's honesty in their choice of name.
       
      My only question is "Why? I mean "Why?'" (to be uttered in a tone of despair).
       
      It tastes like some one had a glass of grapefruit juice with breakfast and then forgot to wash the glass before pouring a beer hours later.

      500 years ago, Martin Luther started off the Reformation. In a way, this not only changed religious affairs in Europe, but also changed our beer.
