|Sam Adams Nitro White Ale
This is a witbeer (5.5% ABV) on nitro (cans and tap) It's light
aroma features some lemon and floral notes with a hint of
Beligum yeast. Creamy medium mouthfeel with subdued flavors of
orange peel, wet hay, wheat, and just a hint of black pepper in the
finish. Overall bland and uninteresting though it might served as
an decent introduction to the style for new craft drinkers.
Overall Rating: Below Average+
|Allagash St. Klippenstein
This beer is a 9% ABV Belgian-style stout It is hopped with Chinook
& Northern Brewer and it is aged 3 months in Bourbon barrel. Opens
with a nose of light roast, chocolate, and a touch of oak. Taste is a
tad sweet with notes of peat moss (think Scotch Ale), dark fruit, and
coffee. Vanilla, oak, and a hint of bourbon appear near the finish.
Nicely made with multi layers of flavors that blend well.
Overall Rating: Very Good
|Harpoon Hoppy Adventure
American Double IPA (7.8%) opens with a
nose of melon, grapefruit, and slight
caramel. First sip immediately brings hops,
followed by citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruits
and spruce resin. It' a well made East Coast
IPA with a nod to it's West Coast brethren.
A most drinkable and tasty beer.
Overall Rating: Very Good+
