Blue Note Brewing Co. by Kolsch

Randalled with kiwi, it gives it a sharp, acidic, fruity flavor, although the taste of kiwi is not that distinctive. With nuttiness still.

Multiflavored! Starts with the sour, follows with taste of grapefruit, ends with the malt. Fabulous!

Lao Brewery by Beerlao Lager

Basically a foreign Budweiser substitute, and that may be an insult to Bud. You'd tire of it quickly, but I would like to try the dark.

So much better on tap than in a bottle. Good, nutty barley flavor, smooth, great body, with no aftertaste. I'd have another!

Just not as impressive out of a plastic cup at the soccer stadium. Old keg? Still decent and better than a Bud.

Pretty impressive. You definitely sense the mix of flavors that comes from the three grains, with no single one dominating.

Alaskan Brewing Co. by Baltic Porter Ale

Ernst E. is drinking a Baltic Porter Ale by Alaskan Brewing Co.

Lively for a porter, but it struck me as having so much going on that nothing was really distinguishable, leaving with "good, but why?"

More good than bad. Crazy to see "sugar" and "tapioca starch" in the ingredients. Only slightly sweet. Pleasant hot weather beer.

Track 7 Brewing Company by Another Bad Creation

Ernst E. is drinking an Another Bad Creation by Track 7 Brewing Company

I don't think it's bad at all! Grapefruity sour with double IPA flavor. I have a hard time believing it's 0 IBU.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. by Trip In the Woods: Rye Dunkelweizen

A little less than the prior bottles, but still a fabulous beer. Utopias for 10% of the cost.

Ruhstaller by The Captain

Ernst E. is drinking The Captain by Ruhstaller

My favorite 4 C's of the hop world. Smoother and less hoppy than I remember, but full of good taste and body.

River City Brewing Company (California) by Sactown Gold

Ernst E. is drinking a Sactown Gold by River City Brewing Company (California) at River City Brewing Company

A little watery. Does have a delayed barley hit, which is pleasant, but not enough to overcome the impression of the first sip.

River City Brewing Company (California) by Doppelbock

Approaches greatness, doesn't quite find it. Slightly sweet, fine dark color, plenty of boost. Overall flavor just not quite there.

Randalled with watermelon, the fruit flavor is intense, and actually becomes a little overwhelming at the end. Good nutty taste saves it.

Blue Note Brewing Co. by Suffragette

Spot on! I have to admit, this is right up there with Hopped Off, the kölsch, Igor and the goses. Very flavorful!
