From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Mojo India Pale Ale

Fresh hop aroma leads to a subtle but complex hop flavor
featuring a bittersweet citrus background not unlike sweetened
grapefruit. In mid sip notes of peeled orange appear.
The finish brings a renewed hoppy burst surrounded by
a light malty sweentess.

Overall Rating - above average
Avery White Rascal

This unfiltered wheat ale is dominated by a zesty clove
background over a sharp, yeasty, wheat character.  Hints of
spicy coriander and curacao orange peel mix with a rising
bitterness.  The finish is light but a perfumy banana flavor
lingers throughout the aftertaste.

Overall Rating - fair
Having sampled well over 2,750 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!

Saranac India Pale Ale

A nicely bitting hop character jumps
out at first sip then moderates to a
provide a gentle background for the
entire drink. Subtle and focused this
beer is fairly complex but crisp and
clean.  Another solid Saranac brew.

Overall rating - good
