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

A note of light sweetness is quickly followed by a tingly caramel
malt yeastiness in this hefeweizen. Citrus notes dominate in a
background of apricot flavor.  Mild but well nuanced, this brew
finishes with sweet orange-lemon tones.  A fine, approachable
hefe for anyone looking for a summer refresher.

Overall Rating - Very Good
Penn Gold

This crisp, clean lager has a light hoppiness that folds into a
malty sweetness.  A grainy presence appears at mid-taste,
highlighted by a biscuity quality that lingers in the aftertaste.  
The finish is smooth and balanced.  A fine American version of
a Munich style beer.

Overall Rating -  Good
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 Belgian White

Honey and floral notes come to the fore
on first sip quickly followed by orange
peel, banana and spice flavors. The finish
brings and astringent orange snap with a
dry, light bodied character. Satisfying but
not special unless it's relatively low
price is considered.

Overall ratting - fair
