I bought another pick 6 from the grocery store, and Samuel Adams Imperial White is the first brew out of the pack. Wow, this beer delivers a kick in the teeth! It has a strong citrus taste with a alcoholic bite. This is quite a sweet beer and lacks a hoppy bitterness though. It’s also… → Read More
This could have been a one word article: “Fail”. Roswell Alien Amber was one of the latest pick six I bought from the grocery store. The label looked interesting so I bought it. I should have seen the gimmick from a mile away. According to the label, Uncle Sam has been trying to keep this… → Read More

The deep brown has a reddish tinge to it, and the tan head lingers for a while. It has a roasted flavor along with some… → Read More
I didn’t have any Red Stripe or other Caribbean beer handy for the Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl Tweetwatch with Ryan’s Disney Film Project. A beer from Rogue seems fitting, however, since Jack Sparrow is quite a rogue. This scotch ale has a chocolate scent; the chocolate theme continues in… → Read More
Pleasantly surprised with this one from New Belgium Brewing. A nice smoky flavor that goes down pretty smooth. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this as much as I did last night. Definitely a beer I will drink again.
