|Anderson Valley Brother David's Triple
A fruity, woody nose leads to hints of plum and apple on first
sip. A dominating malt background compliments the sweetness
and spicy hop notes that emerge in mid-taste. The finish is dry
and complex with a noticeable alcohol bent.
Overall Rating - good
|Sleeman Porter 68
Slightly bitter with a noticeable acidic coffee flavor on first taste,
this brew begins to soften as a light sweetness appears at
mid-sip. Hints of cocoa appear near the finish as a defining
coffee taste begins to dominate. Aftertaste is mildly bitter.
Overall Rating - fair
|Ridgeway Very Bad Elf
This "special reserve ale" begins with
notes of citrus and hops that quickly are
matched by a sweet maltiness. Hops
return for a slight bite and linger to
somewhat offset a sugary hop finish.
This clear, orangey-amber brew is an
interesting seasonal offering
Overall ratting -good
