From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Stillwater Wavvy DIPA

This is an 8% DIPA that features featuring Simcoe, Centennial,
and Nelson hops with - surprise -lactose. It has a nose of orange
and grapefruit with a malty sweetness. Flavors are pineapple,
mango, orange, and lemon, The lactose doesn't isn't very
noticeable. It finishes medium dry. Alcohol goes unnoticed

Overall Rating: Good
Founders reDANKulous

This Imperial IPA from Founders (9.5%) has an aroma that shouts
"dank" with hints of  melon and citrus fruits.  Taste brings peaches,
oranges, light pine, a touch of grass, and a nice earthy/herbal hop
bitterness.  Malt makes its presence known but plays second fiddle
to the Chinook, Mosaic and Simcoe hops.  Some may not
appreciate the dankness but I surely did.  Well made brew.

Overall Rating:
Very Good-
Having sampled nearly 7,000 different 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!

Schlafly White Lager

Think of this 5.5% AABV as a Kellerbier or a
slightly hoppy Hefeweizen.
 It opens with
aromas of grain, sweet grass, and
Flavors are led by pale/slightly grainy malt
notes with berry fruit, wheat,light citrus and a
touch of mild hops.  Worth a try to see how
a kellerbier differs from other lagers.  Well
made but the style is a bit bland.

Overall Rating: Above Average +
