Munchener Gold

Golden clear color, with medium carbonation. Nice white lacey head that has a good amount of retention.

Not much of an aroma, a little hint of fruitiness.

Crisp on the tongue with a slightly watery body. A little bitterness at the start from the hops that then rolls into a nice bit of malt flavor.

Tasty beer that is easy to drink with another bit of bitterness at the end. I need to get more beers in me so I can better describe what I am tasting. LOL.

Thanks for reading, sorry about the lapse in time between beers, I was out of town.

Pinkus Organic
Munster Alt

Golden beer with a touch of red, not a very long lasting head but it was nice and white with medium size bubbles. Carbonation seems low when pured, with a little bit of residue floating in beer.

Aroma is fruity. Mouthfeel is about a medium to light body. Bitterness is low but just enough to feel a bit of it during the finish. Nice hint of maltiness, but not the sweet kind more like the bread or cracker type of taste.

Not too bad of beer, not really sure if I would class it as an alt beer. Might have to look up the style breakdown for that beer again.

Century Celebration Bavarian Lager


Nice yeasty nose with distinct malt. Nice golden color with low carbonation. Nice long lasting white head on it.

Medium body, with a nice balanced finish. Mellow maltiness, with a hint of bitterness on the finish. not sweet and not bitter just right.

Very tasty beer that I enjoy, light enough that you could easily have a few sitting on the porch enjoying the sun.

Lindemans Pomme

Nice clear golden color, with medium carbonation.

Aroma is all apple, like a apple jolly rancher.

Apple through and through, without the sourness that you would expect in a lambic style beer. Again the taste is like an apple jolly rancher.

This beer is good but not what I would expect from a lambic beer. It is missing that sharp acidic tartness. It is refreshing and very enjoyable.

Dad's Little Helper Malt Liquor


Nice golden color, clear with medium carbonation.

A little fruitiness on the nose, but also a little alcohol smell.

There is a little fruitiness and a light body.

Not much to say about this beer, not overally impressed. I don't think I would recommend it to anyone soon.

Rogue Brutal Bitter

Nice orange and yellow color, with a little haze. Wheat I am guessing.

Aroma is fruity, with a hint of vanilla.

Nice amount of carbonation, with a medium body to it. Not a whole lot of malt taste, citrusy, almost like a grapefruit taste, but i also taste a little bit of apricot. Slight alcohol bite at the beginning, then smooths out to a nice amount of bitterness.

According to the label, "An imperial style bitter using aromatic traditional floor malts, a hoppy citrus flavor with a stupendous hop aroma."

Rogue, Chipolte Ale
5% Alch

Smoky nose, an apple, vanilla nose (again I am working on my nose).

Taste has a bold smokiness upfront, medium to high carbonation, smoked almond like taste. The heat at the end is pleasant and appreciated.

It is for the nice heat at the end that I truly enjoy this beer. Very quaffable and very enjoyable beer over all.

I&G Canada Day Release

Innis & Gunn
Canadian Cask Scottish Oak Aged Beer


Its aroma has a rum raisin like smell, mixed with vanilla. Very nice rich red color, medium carbonation.

Clean taste, slightly fruity. Low hop bitterness, with little malt finish. Slight alcohol bite in the finish.

Overall I was more impressed with the Special edition that they released last fall, it had far more subtle flavors and aromas.

First beer

Pawwel Kwak
Belgian beer 8% Alch

Nice reddish color, clear with a mild amount of carbonation. Malty nose with little hop aroma. Sweety taste, with a hint of vanilla, a little alcohol taste, but a nice malty after taste. Overall very clean.

I find this beer enjoyable, but not exactly you would pour for your friends if they aren't already used to Belgian beers. The nose has me a little confused but I am just starting on my tasting skills so in the future I will try to be more descriptive.
