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

A clean, fresh, assertive hop presence emerges at first sip and
expands into dominate grapefruit notes in mid-taste.  As the
finish approaches a slightly sweet, roasted malt background
appears which nicely balances the brew.  At a hearty 6.8% ABV
this beer is a winner from ever perspective.

Overall Rating - excellent
JW Dundee's American Pale Ale

First sip brings some hop notes that move toward a lightly
bitter mid-taste.  The lingering finish carries grassy tones
behind a faintly sweet, roasted malt presence.  
Undistinguished and below standard for a
quality American Pale Ale.

Overall Rating - below average
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!

Small Craft Warning

This is a pilsener-style bock lager.  It
features a hop spice presence that
leads to a somewhat peppery residue in
the finish.  There is a bitter background
throughout that helps to cut the
fundamental sweet, malty
character of the brew.
