From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Melvin Brewing Hubert MPA

This is an 6% ABV American Pale Ale (APA). Grassy and citrus
nose, light body, fragrant but dull hops.   Flavors are light
grapefruit, orange; mango, pine, and a biscuit/caramel malt
base. Medium body, balanced with a somewhat dry finish. A bit
lackluster but certainly drinkable.

Overall Rating: Above Average-
Corona Premier

Ordinarily I don't review non-craft beers here but considering this is
the first new Corona-branded beer in 29 years it's easy to make an
exception especially when regular Corona is the biggest selling
import in the USA.  This is a 4% ABV, 90 calories American Light
Lager. The taste is light /thin with flavors of corn and caramel with
some biscuit.  Nothing off putting.  You could do worse in this style.  

Overall Rating: Average +
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!
