  • Hoegaarden Original White Ale
    rated 4.5 17 years ago

    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 9 | Mouthfeel: 9 | Flavor: 10 | Overall: 9

    This wheat beer is flavored with coriander seeds and citrus peels--but it works! A superlative beer that smells of fresh yeast, and tastes of spices and fruit. Low carbonation as well--Wow! I find it particularly restorative--the beer equivalent of an energy tonic!

  • Pilsner Urquell
    rated 3.9 17 years ago

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

    A wonderful pilsner--good color and head. Nose has hints of honey. Incredible mouthfeel: full and honeyed. Almost too rich to have with food. This is one beer that will have you coming back for more.

  • Budweiser
    rated 1.1 17 years ago

    Aroma: 3 | Appearance: 2 | Mouthfeel: 2 | Flavor: 2 | Overall: 2

    This must be one of the worst beers I have tasted. I can only marvel at its success around the world. Almost no taste to speak of. Perhaps a hint of beer-like flavorant? Incredibly high carbonation--gives you gas by just opening the bottle. If you add yellow food coloring to soda water, you pretty much know what this stuff tastes like.

    This looks, smells, and tastes very much like the current marketing campaign of the beer: glitzy, frothy, and without substance. The kind of beer models probably like to be photographed holding, but really just a fizzy, pale concoction that if anything, tastes like fermented lemons.

  • Gilroy Serious Dark Ale
    rated 4.5 17 years ago

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

    A wonderful porter. Inky brown color that hints at complexity. Fruity, spicy, and malted nose. Taste lingers for a long time: chocolate, cedar, spice. Very much the Bordeaux blend of beers. You have to try this one--naturally brewed, unfiltered porter at its best.
