Brett Loves Hops

Austin Street Brewery

American Amber Ale

6.6/10 by scot have another Brett Loves Hops by Austin Street Brewery

Pours slightly cloudy on an otherwise clear and light looking beer. Almost saison looking. Heaps of rocky, white foam top. A bit of staying power, leaving wispy lacing, and a light overall cover to the remaining beer. Aroma is a peppery and fruity. Not much, if any malt: light grain. Blackberry is most distinct. Taste is rather simple. A touch of grain up front, carrying to the middle. Blackberry, fruity and a finish of solid pepper. Lingers. Light body with minimal to no carbonation...read more

Eclipse - Old Fitzgerald 2012

Fifty Fifty Brewing Company

American Imperial Stout

8.0/10 by rich have another Eclipse - Old Fitzgerald 2012 by Fifty Fifty Brewing Company

A: deep, dark brown with light brown foam that makes a brief appearance. S/T: chocolate and whiskey are first. Background notes of char and malt. Semi sweetness, stops short of too much and helps offset the whiskey bite. The sugar tastes like a variant of dark chocolate. O: I definitely would have this beer again. But it really should be at a lower price point. It seems to sit on shelves in Chicago. Anyway, it reminds me of those euro chocolate candies with booze in them. I am not an expert o...read more

Eclipse - Old Fitzgerald 2012

Fifty Fifty Brewing Company

American Imperial Stout

8.2/10 by scot have another Eclipse - Old Fitzgerald 2012 by Fifty Fifty Brewing Company

Pours opaque covered with a half inch of dark tan, thick foam. Froths up slightly as it dissipates rather quickly. Lacing rings the glass at the point of level, mostly falling back. A creaminess, from the residual foam adds a nice compliment. Aroma of sweet chocolate, char barrel (not quite smokey), whiskey, no bourbon, leaving a bit of roughness around the edges. Brown sugar/molasses. Complex which makes it exciting but just not smooth complexity. Taste brings a big wallop. Sweet, and...read more

The Curl

Short's Brewing Company

American Imperial Pilsner

7.0/10 by scot have another The Curl by Short's Brewing Company

Pours crystal clear with a finger or more of white foam. Retention is good for Pils style beer, becoming a bit more frothy as it recedes, very un-pils like. Nice lacing. Aroma is mellow sweet. Herbal and grassy hops lend to that "skunky" pils scent. Taste isn't much more eventful. Soft, sweet malt with hops starting to build in the middle. The end brings a low but lingering hop presence. Light body with medium carbonation. I don't like pilsners. The American macro-brew boys h...read more

Stroker Ace

Short's Brewing Company

American IPA

8.6/10 by scot have another Stroker Ace by Short's Brewing Company

Pours clear with a brilliant, large bubbled white foam. Retention is more fleeting than most IPAs but nonetheless hangs out for a bit. No lacing. Aroma is nice. They didn't skimp on the dry hopping and/or late kettle hopping to get this kind of aroma on a "session" ipa. Citrus and sweet, balance malt backbone. Taste carries the sweet malt. Not cloying, slight caramel sweetness that carries throughout reaching it's zenith in the finish to help fight off the large amount of bitter...read more

Cerveza De Julie

Short's Brewing Company

American Standard Lager

7.2/10 by scot have another Cerveza De Julie by Short's Brewing Company

Pours crystal clear with minimal white head. There is absolutely no retention or lacing. Looks like a pilsner. Light pilsner malt gives a pleasant sweetness. Touch of lime. Not the typical skunk. Taste has a bit of sweetness along with lime. Not much else. Light body with light carbonation. Don't drink this unless it is warm. A nothing beer. Okay for a pilsner but still a pilsner. I don't need many of them in my life to be happy. I would have it again if nothing else was available. ...read more

Bonafide Legit

Short's Brewing Company

American Pale Ale

7.3/10 by scot have another Bonafide Legit by Short's Brewing Company

Pours clear with minimal, snow white foam. Retention is minimal as well - not taking long before it nary coats the rest of the beer. Lacing is thin but stretches in rings throughout. Aroma is light sweetness that is covered quickly by hops. Earth, spice and a touch of citrus. Taste is more of the aroma. It's a pale ale so not much malt to cover, leaving a touch of bitterness on the back side. Not harsh - smooth and balanced. Light end of medium body. Carbonation tingles late on the fr...read more

Cornerstone IPA

Rochester Mills Beer Co.

American IPA

8.8/10 by scot have another Cornerstone IPA by Rochester Mills Beer Co.

Pours cloudy with a half inch of white foam. Head sticks around for a bit, frothing as it recedes, leaving residue on the ping glass sides. Aroma is solid classical Centennial hops: a mix of floral and dominant citrus, leaning towards the citrus side. Not much malt on the back end. Calls me in for a taste. Taste is once again hop forward but doesn't carry the hops as well as the nose. Muted. Light touch of sweetness/malt that reminds me of Vienna malt. Citrus side of the hops is front an...read more
