Ninkasi Brewing Company by Maiden the Shade

Ernst E. is drinking a Maiden the Shade by Ninkasi Brewing Company

Nice base ale, but I didn't care much for the hops.

Belching Beaver Brewery by Great Lei

Ernst E. is drinking a Great Lei by Belching Beaver Brewery

You taste the pineapple, (it's better than Ballast Point's), and the IPA part is decent, but it's not a great beer.

Grupo Modelo S.A. de C.V. by Corona Extra (Coronita, Mega)

Ernst E. is drinking a Corona Extra (Coronita, Mega) by Grupo Modelo S.A. de C.V.

Corona is Corona--not the best Mexican beer, but good, and why Constellation hasn't screwed up the Ballast Point lagers like they did ales.

Out Of Bounds Brewing Co.  by Juniper Saison

Ernst E. is drinking a Juniper Saison by Out Of Bounds Brewing Co. at Out of Bounds Brewing Company

Spicy! The underlying Saison is pretty traditional, but it's hard to tell under the juniper. Not quite like gin, either. OK.

Blue Note Brewing Co. by Sour Apricot Funk

Ernst E. is drinking a Sour Apricot Funk by Blue Note Brewing Co. at Blue Note Brewing Company

Clear, slightly sparkly, with a fine flavor of fruit and a crisp bite on your palate. A go to beer here for sour lovers.

Boston Beer Company by Samuel Adams Hopscape

Ernst E. is drinking a Samuel Adams Hopscape by Boston Beer Company

A hefe with hops! I found this drinking experience to be quite unexpected and most pleasant. It's like something Sudwerk's in Davis brews.

Moonraker Brewing Company by Zulu Haze

Ernst E. is drinking a Zulu Haze by Moonraker Brewing Company

Good, but not as fruity or smooth as Dojo, and with more of that farmhouse taste I don't really like.

New Glory Craft Brewery by Farmopolis Mosaic Hopped Saison

Ernst E. is drinking a Farmopolis Mosaic Hopped Saison by New Glory Craft Brewery at New Glory Craft Brewery

Lacking liveliness on the second day of the growler, but the taste is just as good, and that's what's important.

Coronado Brewing Company by Seacoast Pilsner

Ernst E. is drinking a Seacoast Pilsner by Coronado Brewing Company

There's something not quite right about the hops flavor, but the following malt flavors are spot on. Perhaps trying to be too West Coast?

Monkish Brewing Co. by Soul Foudre

Ernst E. is drinking a Soul Foudre by Monkish Brewing Co.

Reminds me of Duchess de Bourgogne with the same dark color and tartness, just not as sweet. Very smooth, very tasty.

Moonraker Brewing Company by DOJO

Ernst E. is drinking a DOJO by Moonraker Brewing Company

I've not been a fan of hazy beers, but this one is the best I've had so far. It has fruity flavors and doesn't taste muddy or unfinished.

New Glory Craft Brewery by Farmopolis Mosaic Hopped Saison

Ernst E. is drinking a Farmopolis Mosaic Hopped Saison by New Glory Craft Brewery at New Glory Craft Brewery

Skunky smell, like Ninja vs. Unicorn, but very smooth and clear flavor, despite the mosaic hops. Good!

New Glory Craft Brewery by Lemon Meringue Pie

Ernst E. is drinking a Lemon Meringue Pie by New Glory Craft Brewery at New Glory Craft Brewery

Tastes as advertised, amazingly so. It's a dessert beer, though, as it doesn't pair well with food, as you might expect.

Brauerei Beck by Beck's

Ernst E. is drinking a Beck's by Brauerei Beck

This is the German equivalent of soul food, German soul beer, if you will. Nothing not to like.
