From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Peroni Nastro Azzurro

This Euro Pale Lager (5.1% ABV) opens with light aromas of
s, corn, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Taste of bread, corn,
grass, grain, and light malt. Finish is somewhat crisp and
clean.  Served cold it's a superior alternative to most Euro Lagers
which is faint praise but praise nonetheless.

Overall Rating: A
Firestone Walker Infernos

This is an imperial rye IPA (8.2% ABV). Aroma is floral, hoppy, citric
with a touch of crackers and spicy rye.  Flavors are tropical fruit,
pineapple, passion fruit, mango, citrus, orange, lemon, lime, and
grapefruit with everpresent spicy rye.  Some light caramel
sweetness just before a somewhat dry finish.  Interesting beer.

Overall: Good
Having sampled over 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!

Barrier Endless Sky

A 7% ABV American IPA, this beer brings a
nose of mango, pineapple and dank yeast.  
It verges on being a juice bomb in the best
New England tradition.  Flavors bring tropical
fruits ,citrus, bitter lemon, grapefruit and
mango.  Finish is lightly bitter.  Well made
and a good example of the style

Very Good
