Tap Room No. 21 Brewing by Copper Lager

Ernst E. is drinking a Copper Lager by Tap Room No. 21 Brewing

Pretty good beer at 50 cents a bottle! Light, slightly sweet, good color, smooth, with no bad beer bitterness.

Purchased at 99 Cents Only Stores

Out Of Bounds Brewing Co.  by Powdered Toast Man

Ernst E. is drinking a Powdered Toast Man by Out Of Bounds Brewing Co.

A beer that tries too hard to be different and ruins itself in the process. The maple syrup flavor tastes like the fake stuff. Blecch.

Purchased at Costco Wholesale

Ol' Republic Brewery by Project X Chocolytpto

Ernst E. is drinking a Project X Chocolytpto by Ol' Republic Brewery

Excellent. Well-balanced barrel-aging, avoiding the overly boozy flavors that afflict some bourbon brews. Cherries are a great added note.

Fort Point Beer Company by Westfalia

Ernst E. is drinking a Westfalia by Fort Point Beer Company

The name, the label, the taste -- this is easily my favorite altbier. Well done, slightly sweet, full-bodied and awesome!

Not bad. Better than Voodoo Ranger. Smoother.

Anderson Valley Brewing Company by Thribble Currant

Ernst E. is drinking a Thribble Currant by Anderson Valley Brewing Company

My last experience was with Horse Tongue TC on draft and it tasted much better. This is just a rather ordinary sour with oak tannin.

King Cong Brewing Co. by Inaugural Milk Stout

Ernst E. is drinking an Inaugural Milk Stout by King Cong Brewing Co. at King Cong Brewing Co.

Very decent, very competent, smooth, textbook, really, without that burnt flavor that some think means stout. Enjoyable.

Draft

Radeberger Gruppe by Clausthaler Amber

Ernst E. is drinking a Clausthaler Amber by Radeberger Gruppe

These must've been better once, because last year I rated it higher. It's a desperation beverage, really.

Jackrabbit Brewing Company by Batch #5

Ernst E. is drinking a Batch #5 by Jackrabbit Brewing Company at Jackrabbit Brewing Company

This one is good. It's a fairly straightforward sour, until you give it a matter of seconds and it leaves a nutty aftertaste. Lip-smacking!

Draft

Jackrabbit Brewing Company by Black Currant Wit

Ernst E. is drinking a Black Currant Wit by Jackrabbit Brewing Company at Jackrabbit Brewing Company

Is there beer in here? It looks so beautiful too, with slight fizz. Not just sour -- bitter. Looks are deceptive.

Kona Brewing Company by Longboard Island Lager

Ernst E. is drinking a Longboard Island Lager by Kona Brewing Company

I'd say the average is about right. It's decent, but doesn't know if it's American, Asian, or German lager. Needs an identity.

New Belgium Brewing Company by Voodoo Ranger IPA

Ernst E. is drinking a Voodoo Ranger IPA by New Belgium Brewing Company

I don't know what all the fuss is about or why this beer is so popular. It's solid, sure, a hophead steady, but not much in the way of new.

Bottle

Radeberger Gruppe by Clausthaler Classic / Premium

Ernst E. is drinking a Clausthaler Classic / Premium by Radeberger Gruppe

It starts well enough, although with that sickly malt sweetness of all NA beers, but the finish is nigh undrinkable.

Mendocino Brewing Company by Eye of the Hawk

Ernst E. is drinking an Eye of the Hawk by Mendocino Brewing Company at Olivers Foothills Gas

Better slightly than last time. I'd really like to taste this at the brewery. Someday.

Alpine Beer Company by Willy Vanilly

I see no need to change my glowing opinion of this top notch vanilla beer.
