From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale

First brewed in 1981 this beer is a full-flavored, bold gem.  A
brisk hop nose and taste are immediately apparent with light
hints of citrus, caramel, and spices in the background.  The
pronounced hop presence is accompained by a light malt
sweetness that leads to a satisfying lemon briskness at the
finish.  Brewed as a winter seasonal this beer would be great
any month of the year!
Yuengling Porter

Copper brown porter that carries a welcoming malty, coffee
nose.  An initial licorice sweetness moves on to a somewhat
bitter toast note near the finish.  The medium body mouthfeel
remains dry and mellow throughout.  A solid but not great

It's a tough job but someone has got to do it!

The friendly folks who run beernexus have asked me
to write a semi-regular review of beer for them.  
Having sampled well over 1,700 beers in my capacity
as a fully certified taster I can promise honest,
thoughtful, and careful evaluations.  However,
remember that these reviews are totally subjective.  
Consider this column an informative resource only.  
The bottom line is to trust your own judgment and
keep drinking!

Simply put this is an excellent
imperial stout.  Made with whole,
fresh raspberries, this full bodied
brew presents an up front chocolate
tone with a noticable alcohol
bitterness.  An ever present malty
character blends nicely with the
sweetness of the raspberries as you
near the finish which is
complimented by light notes of
roasted coffee.  Well worth buying
but not for those who want a dry ,
light profile
