Poured a golden color with a fair amount of white foam that didn't last too long with very little lacing.
Not much to the aroma, a little graininess with faint apple detected.
The flavor starts out grainy backed up with a very slight apple fruitiness, no hop flavor whatsoever.
Mouthfeel has medium body and carbonation to it. Goes down very easy and is highly refreshing.
Overall it's not bad but nothing special.
Pours a very creamy looking black with an ample tan head that has good retention with some chunky style lacing.
Aroma is dominated by piny hops with some roasted malt and a touch of cocoa in the backround, actually smells faintly burnt.
The taste is a big blast of piny hops that finishes dry. After blowing out the taste buds it took more than half of the pint to get to the malt. The malt tastes very roasty with a bitterness around the edges from being burnt I suspect.
Mouthfeel is creamy and full bodied. The low carbonation serves this beer very well and makes it easy to drink.
I went into this thinking "Hoppy Stout" but came out thinking more "Black IPA". TRY IT I SAY!
Poured black with a very low amount of beige foam and below average lacing.
Aroma is on the faint side, mostly roasted malts and some faint piny hops.
The taste is very roasty, slightly bitter around the edges and lacks any kind of sweetness. Finishes with the piney hops, lower on the bitterness with not much dryness either.
Mouthfeel is just a tad thin with medium carbonation that fits well. Hard to believe it's 6.5% alcohol.
Dark reddish brown in color and very clear. Creamy offwhite head leaving behind some spotty lacing.
Aroma is dominated by caramel malts with some spices and a little earthy hopiness. Just a touch of sweetness and light fruit.
Taste really tips toward the caramel malts, some roastiness and a smidge of toffee. Finishes a touch dry with grassy hop bitterness. A little bit of cinnamon, nutmeg spice is apparent more as the glass goes down.
Absent is any kind of alcohol warmth. Medium bodied and smooth, somewhat lighter on the carbonation. Enjoyable!
Pours a cloudy yellowish-orange color with a very large white head that settles eventually into some nice lacing.
A very slight wheat aroma with some orange citrus. The spicy notes seemed to be dominated by pepper.
The flavor is orange citrus with a little lemon, backed with a ginger, coriander, pepper spiciness. Just a little bit tart at the finish.
Medium to full bodied with strong carbonation.
A very pleasant example of the Witbier style in my book.
12 oz. bottle contract brewed by Southern Tier...
Poured a very clear golden color with a fair amount of thick white foam that leaves some good lacing.
It has a good citrus aroma with a touch of fruit over a sweet maltiness and just a touch of pine.
This is one of the cleanest tasting beers that I've ever tried. Lots of citrusy flavors without any bitterness. Sweet bready malt faintly in the backround.
Very light bodied with enough soft carbonation. Very crisp, clean and drinkable. Truly an enjoyable experience. You can't go wrong with this choice.
Extra Pale session ale contract brewed by Cold Spring for 21st Amendment in a very sharp looking can.
The lower alcohol content of this session ale makes it very drinkable. Very similar to an IPA with a refreshing palate and slightly thin texture.
Drank this brew extremely cold, just above freezing and it maintained it's smoothness and full flavor. Has a very hoppy aroma dominated by piny hops with some grapefruit notes. The hop bite hits you right out of the gate followed by some sweet smoothness finishing with a good mellowed out hop bitterness, great balance and slightly dry aftertaste. Could go through a whole six of this very easily.
Paired VERY well with the curry spiced cookies made with chili powder.
Hazy golden color with a foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Looks and smells mostly like a belgian wit, yeasty, sweetness apparent with hints of spices and citrus. Can't really detect the alcohol until the end where it produces a fair amount of warmth. Has just a touch of coriander and lemon along the way, sweet at the beginning and sweet at the end. Carbonated well with a little slickness, medium bodied. Probably could put back a few of these but not much more.
