"Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza." --Dave Barry

  • Hook & Ladder Backdraft Brown Ale
    rated 3.1 12 years ago

    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 5 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 6

    Nice nutty-malty mix with a very fizzy mouthfeel (lots of carbonation, but almost no head or lacing). Flavor is a definitely that of darker roasted malts, but very nice.

  • Shock Top Belgian White
    rated 3.7 12 years ago

    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    Smooth, round mouthfeel; a little piquant with some nice spiciness. Love that they left the yeast sediment in ... unfiltered's always better. Gotta hand it to the AB folks; this is pretty good. Perhaps not as much character as Coors' under-cover Belgian White (Blue Moon), but good for a mass-brew.

  • Sierra Nevada Brown Ale
    rated 3.1 14 years ago

    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 5 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 6 | Overall: 6

    I'm normally a fan of Sierra Nevada's brews, but this one seemed a little boring. Medium red-brown body with a huge sudsy head like a rootbeer float that leaves the sides of the glass looking like the aftermath of an explosion at a Dutch lace factory. Not much in the way of aroma or taste, other than some hops. Thin mouthfeel with perhaps a little too much carbonation.

  • Tilburgs Dutch Brown Ale
    rated 4.1 14 years ago

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 9 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 9 | Overall: 8

    Clear, dark-reddish brown with lots of bubbles; body looks very much like a cola. Thin, pale head with plenty of lacing. Spicy, sugary-raisin fruit aroma. Plum, cloves and other spices in the taste. Nice, balanced mouthfeel.

  • Great Divide Hercules Double IPA
    rated 4.3 14 years ago

    Aroma: 9 | Appearance: 9 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 9

    Golden orange-amber with a taaaalllll head that sticks around and produces lots of lacing. Citrusy, piney hop nose. Taste is like sucking on a hop bud; mighty dry and mighty good. Mouthfeel is punctuated with a double-whammy of carbonation and hop zing.
