Holy hell!!! This thread is awesome!!!

I did not know it existed until about 6 hours ago. Well - Thats lead to some serious drinking.

I had the first page open on my phone at the liquor store and got the following:

Guniess 250
Coopers Stout (Ive made the homebrew - had to try the original)
Little Yella Pils
Old Chub
Bombshell Blonde


So Far:

LOVED the Guiness - It was really good
HATED the Coopers. I hated the Home Brew too, but I wanted to make sure I didnt mess it up
The Pils wad good. I would buy it again. But its not a fav of mine
Old Chub is good. Im about 1/2 way through my first.
Havent had the blonde yet, I will update.



GREAT THREAD!!!


Should we do one for wine and liquor as well, or just keep the beer one?

Glad you like it.

I don't know that it would work that great for wine, since often the point is that the bottle express the field, each year producing a different quality.

Would probably work for liquor, then again I don't think that most drink liquor straight.

Reissdorf Kölsch

Kolsch is a style similar to Champagne in that it the name not only refers to a style, but the geographical area of origin. Just like with the French Sparking wines, it is honored in Europe, but American Brewers seemingly could care less. A Kolsch is an ale from the Koln (Cologne) region of Germany that undergoes a lagering step to smooth out the flavors. They are typically very light ales, but tend to be a little more flavorful than their all lager counterparts.

Kolsch beers have a sweet fruityness from the yeast, maltyness from the grain, and light bittering hops. There may not be a more drinkable all malt style out there. It is perfect to enjoy during the summer months (many American Microbreweries and Brewpubs put out a summer seasonal that is in fact a Kolsch).

Reissdorf does not disappoint, being one of the flagship beers from Koln that define the style. It is light and drinkable, and the flavors are excellent. It has moderate alcohol at 4.8%.

It is perhaps a little more hopped than I would like. Unfortunately it only comes in 4 packs (by me) and is a little pricey (10.50), so isn't one to always get.

This is a very good stepping stone style for people used to American Megas, vice versa, it has all the qualities that the American Megas tout, but puts them together in a very nice package, and is something that a fan of micros/imports would enjoy.

Grade - 7.8

I don't think that I've ever had Coopers. Though I do recall seeing it (different color packaging for the style, yellow for the stout correct?)

Mojo



Brewer: Boulder Beer Company (Boulder, CO)
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA)

My Review:
Pours a clear gold color, with no real head, but a light white foam on top. I have no idea how they got it like that in the picture. Scent is hops. Citrus, pine, floral, and light grass on the nose. Taste is the same, with light malt, and a nice crisp, bitter, finish. Full body, which can be expected from the style.

Like most IPA's the hops are the dominate flavor. When done right, it's not overpowering. This one is done right. It's not my favorite IPA - that honor goes to Dogfish Head 90 Minute - but it's not far off. A rare IPA that I'll actually order when I'm out. Really glad it was in the sample pack, and I look forward to finishing off the next two.


My Score: 8.0

Brooklyn Lager is one of the hoppier lagers I've ever drank and I really like it. It's a good safety beer, but it's not particularly exciting.

Sweaty Betty Blond




Brewer: Boulder Beer Company (Boulder, CO)
Style: Seasonal/Wheat

My Review:
Pours a hazy yellow, with a very little white head. Scent is bready wheat, light citrus, and banana yeast. Taste is pretty much the same, wheat, light citrus, and a hint of banana. Light bodied, and slightly watery.

Tastes like a wheat should, might be a little lighter flavored though. It's not great, but not bad. Not something I'd regularly order, but that goes for most wheats. My wife loves it.

My Score: 6.0

the tulip glass is, imo, the best glass for beer.


Mine is a bit skinnier and taller, but almost identical.

I drink everything out of it, even though I have pretty much a full set of glasses.

It is one of those things, do you calibrate your glass to your tastes or to the individual beer you put in it. I prefer to calibrate it to my tastes.

Plus it provides a great reference. I've pretty much had every single one in this thread out of the same glass.

So I've been doing a little studying....

I've been trying to find major brands for a true German Helles available here (I am crazy into German beer right now), and come to find out that in fact one that has been right under my nose, Lowenbrau, is in fact one.

However there are two versions of it, garbo and good. One is a product licensed by Miller that has corn in the grain bill and is basically Miller in a different bottle.

The other (Lowenbrau Original) is a Munich Helles imported from Munich, and Lowenbrau is one of the major Munich Breweries (in addition to Weishenstephaner and Spaten).

Helles bock is basically maibock, am I right? I do love maibock.

What do people think about Hefeweizen or other wheat beers?

I love them with a little lemon in them. I am more of a liquor man - love the jack and cokes - but I like that beer a lot.

Try them with an orange instead of a lemon. Its a nice change up.


I love wheat beers. Have you ever has a Tripel?
