Full Sail Brewing Company by Session Premium Lager

Ernst E. is drinking a Session Premium Lager by Full Sail Brewing Company

Without that sharp taste that marks the finish of so many American-made lagers, this follows the hallmarks and flavors of the best.

21st Amendment Brewery by Enjoy Porter

Ernst E. is drinking an Enjoy Porter by 21st Amendment Brewery at 21st Amendment Brewery & Restaurant

Good stuff! Smooth, dark, tasty, without an overroast. A bit more body would seal the deal.

Kona Brewing Company by Hanalei Island IPA

Ernst E. is drinking a Hanalei Island IPA by Kona Brewing Company

It's like a session IPA. Good fruit flavor, smooth, plenty of body, nice color and head. A good beer!

Green Fog Brewing Co. by Organic IPA

Ernst E. is drinking an Organic IPA by Green Fog Brewing Co.

Just another overhopped IPA that forgot about the malt taste. And I've not noticed that organic ever does anything for flavor.

Calicraft Brewing Company by Cali Cöast

Ernst E. is drinking a Cali Cöast by Calicraft Brewing Company at California State Fair

Meh. Good flavor at the start, but halfway through it begins to seem ordinary, even cheap. A bit of a disappointment.

Peak Organic Brewing Company by IPA

Ernst E. is drinking an IPA by Peak Organic Brewing Company

For a moment, about midway through, I thought I caught a hint of a nutty flavor I really liked, but it passed quickly. Amarillo no bueno.

Klosterbrauerei Andechs by Andechser Vollbier Hell

Ernst E. is drinking an Andechser Vollbier Hell by Klosterbrauerei Andechs

This is lager perfection in 500 ml. How anyone could rate this below 4 is beyond me.

BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse by BJ's PM Porter®

Ernst E. is drinking a BJ's PM Porter® by BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse at BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse

Smooth, good foam, not overroasted, a fine beer, but lax on the flavor and body, making it a bit watery.

Out Of Bounds Brewing Co.  by Juiced Blackberry Double IPA

Ernst E. is drinking a Juiced Blackberry Double IPA by Out Of Bounds Brewing Co.

Not as good as before, but I bought it at Costco.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. by Sidecar Orange Pale Ale

Ernst E. is drinking a Sidecar Orange Pale Ale by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

Good stuff! A pale ale that I actually like, from SN no less. Mild citrus, not too much hop bite, a pleasure.

Cellarmaker Brewing Company by Little Lies

Ernst E. is drinking a Little Lies by Cellarmaker Brewing Company

Little Fishy might be a better name to me. What they call lemony, I call filleted. Not enough malt to balance the bitter. Good with chips?

Cellarmaker Brewing Company by Helles

Ernst E. is drinking a Helles by Cellarmaker Brewing Company

Very still and clear. Good barley flavor, distinctively so, but lacking the action I expect in this type.

Trumer Brewery by Trumer Pils

Not quite perfect here, but still good with the Asian food at this chic restaurant.

Beach Chalet Pub and Brewery by Presidio IPA

Ernst E. is drinking a Presidio IPA by Beach Chalet Pub and Brewery at Beach Chalet Brewery & Restaurant

Very smooth and balanced, despite the 70+ IBU. It seriously doesn't seem that high! Proper amount of malt makes it work.
