From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Magic Hat Barroom Hero

This is an 4.2% ABV English Brown Ale. The nose features caramel,
toffee, toasty barley, grass, and light hop notes.  Flavor profile
featres molasses, roasted nuts, toasted bread,Finish brings a hint
of orange rind, black tea, and earthy tones. Okay but
uninteresting and a touch bland.

Overall Rating: Average
Modern Times Orderville

This is an American IPA at 7.2% ABV featuring mosaic and simcoe
hops in what is a combination West Coast / East Coast IPA of sorts.
The aroma is dank with pine, grass, and light onions.  Flavors are
stone fruit, pine,grass, pale malt,wheat, orange and tangerine.
There is some astringency to it. The beer finishes long, fruity, with
lingering soft bitterness.  Solid beer.

Overall Rating: 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!
