Boulevard’s Tank 7 had been a saison on my list for quite some time and finally I drank some of what Boulevard considers to be their best farmhouse ale. It poured a clear yellow, but as the yeast and sediment swirled about, it quickly became cloudy. Also, it had a thick, white head that had … More Boulevard’s Perfect Farmhouse Ale
The Kentucky Common has a rich, albeit almost forgotten, history. It is one of only three indigenous beers to the United States. Prior to Prohibition, it was quite popular among the working class in and around Louisville, Kentucky. The style started off, similarly to the Steam Beer of California, as a way to brew in … More The Modern Kentucky Common
The Bond Street Brownie from Dark City Brewing poured a classic brown color with a cream-colored head. It started with a thick head that diminished into a thin head, and left some lacing behind. I predominately smelled chocolate, but sure enough coffee notes and even some toffee notes, began to emerge. The first flavor I … More Bond Street Brownie
I solely picked this beer based on the cartoonish label (and wanting to try more of Brix City Brewing’s offerings). The Jaromir Lager poured a clear, muted gold with a white head that quickly dissipated. On the nose, all I detected was creamed corn. As far as taste was concerned, it was predominately creamed corn … More They Shoot, They Score
I was eyeing this particular beer for the past few weeks and thankfully, it remained an option for me to try today. Two Roads’ Road Jam had an opaque red body with a small off-white head that had some decent retention and lacing. It smelt abundantly of fresh raspberries, faintly of lemongrass and still some … More Two Roads Road Jam
First a disclaimer: I got a growler of Bolero Snort’s OVB Creamsicle IPA and had a glass with dinner yesterday and then I waited until today to have another glass and review it. It’s been roughly a month and half since I first got the urge to try this stuff. I missed my chance to … More No Bullin’
I decided to try Avery Brewing’s El Gose. The last time I had one was fall, so I felt that I was due for another one. It had a hazy straw yellow color with a thin, fizzy white head that had very little staying power. The aromatics were very mild. I picked up some lime … More Who Gose There?
True to its name, Magnify’s Low Visibility was a hazy bright yellow with a quickly dissipating white head that left some lacing behind. Initially, I got pure hop notes on the nose. Smelling a little longer, the pine and citrus, started to come through, followed by a hint of mango. The hops continued to shine … More Shinin’ Through
Obsidian in color with a thick caramel head, Carton Brewing’s Unjunct Stout offers a return to basic stouts. Nothing fancy, just a well-made stout. The head diminished rather quickly, providing some lacing. I smelt roasted malts and coffee, with lovely vanilla and hints of booze and berries. As I drank, I first noticed bitter, dark … More What’s in a Stout?
I don’t pick up many lagers, so I went with one to spice things up. Flying Dog’s Numero Uno, an agave cerveza, is a lager brewed with agave nectar and lime zest. It poured a crystal clear pale yellow with a thick, white head, which had little to no retention. As far as the scent … More Uno más
