Pfriem Family Brewers by Spring Pale Ale

Quite a lovely pale. Notes from the thiols are low enough to almost be pleasant.

Purchased at Broken Top Bottle Shop & Ale Cafe

I do not see the point. Nothing off about it. But not a style space I need filled.

No rating as no idea the condition or age of that bottle but poured out quickly.

Firestone Walker Brewing Company by Firestone 17 (XVII) Anniversary Ale

Mark L. is drinking a Firestone 17 (XVII) Anniversary Ale by Firestone Walker Brewing Company at Starshine Brewery

Worst-aged one. Hopefully ones in cellars held up better. Still quite intriguing now that have had Bravo & Stickee Monkee (55%) & Helldorado

Modern Times Beer by City of the Dead

Mark L. is drinking a City of the Dead by Modern Times Beer at Starshine Brewery

Not shabby, especially for the price. But I prefer mine with a bit more heft.

Bottle

Founders Brewing Co. by All Day IPA

Mark L. is drinking an All Day IPA by Founders Brewing Co. at Starshine Brewery

Solid beer. Definitely got trendy--aka, to me, allium-flavor and aroma--hops. Tasty despite that fact. But would never be a go to.

De Struise Brouwers by Rio Reserva (2012)

Mark L. is drinking a Rio Reserva (2012) by De Struise Brouwers at Starshine Brewery

Started out good but I had to abandon it. Fair white wine/cider notes. As warmed fusels showed themselves. Couldn't do anymore.

Mazama Brewing by Deadline Pils

Mark L. is drinking a Deadline Pils by Mazama Brewing at Starshine Brewery

Quite nice. I like it. Might have to see about a 6 pack. Sure wish I could read/interpret that date code. ::sigh::
