|Dogfish Head Aprihop
First sip brings an slightly bitter presence with a definite flavor
of alcohol (7% ABV) that almost overpowers the apricot
background. As the beer warms, a sweetish apricot comes to
the fore, softening the beer. The finish combines the hop and
apricot profile for an overall satisfying taste experience.
Overall Rating - good.
|Smithwick's Irish Ale
Soft and creamy, this Irish brewed ale features a light
bitterness with a caramel, malt, biscuity profile. Hops prevail
in the background leading to a floral, aromatic, lightly sweet
finish. A tad over carbonated but still a refreshing, lighter brew
Overall Rating - Above Average
|Oskar Blues Old Chub
Scottish style ale combines a solid
hop presence with chocolate malt
profile. Mid-taste brings a tasty
interplay of bitterness and
sweetness over a peat smoke
background. The full mouthfeel and
warming alcohol (8%) make for a
great winter warmer. In cans only.
Overall rating - Very Good
