From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Melbourn Bros. Strawberry

Fresh strawberries come alive in this low alcohol (3.4%) brew
that reminds one of strawberry jam with a kick.  Backed by a
light astringent sourness the pink hued brew finishes with a
sweet-sour aftertaste.  If served well chilled this beer is a
pleasant change of pace.

Overall Rating - good
Victory Moonglow Weizenbock

First sip brings a somewhat heavy mouthfeel of tart apple
juice.  This is quickly followed by a sugary, malty profile.  
Banana and spice bring up the background as a noticeable
wheat presence emerges at the end.  This high alcohol brew
(8.7%) is well within style guidelines but not one of Victory's

Overall Rating - 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!

Flying Dog Old Scratch

This amber lager boasts of a
refreshing  lemon-citrus base under
notes of sugary malt.  A somewhat
sweet nose leads to strains of nuts and
caramel at mid-taste.  The finish is
malty and clean.  A well made
interesting brew.
