From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Cricket Hill East Coast Lager
Clean notes of flavorful light bitterness at first taste join with a
rich malty base to create a smooth easy drinking brew. The
bright golden body settles into a steady malt-hop balance with
a pleasant softness and approachability. An excellent American
Fat Weasel Pale Ale
First sip brings a somewhat sweetened, grapefruity tange that
leads to a moderate hop bitterness. The flavors remain
balanced until the fruitiness hop character reasserts inself in
the finish. A solid pale ale.
Having sampled well over 1,900 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
Redhook Sunrye Ale
This beer opens with a fresh, light,
clean taste thanks to a bright hop
presence. It's medium body is quite
dry with an ample, though muted,
citrus aspect. Overall the beer
remains semi-tart with a mild
roastedness and sweet malt fullness
at the end.
