From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
McChouffe

Impressive floral nose of sweet malt, citrus and aromatic hops.
First sip brings citrus candy, tropical fruit, berries with light hop
bitterness in a malt profile.  At mid-taste some chocolate and
caramel appear.  The somewhat spicy finish yields a welcome
hop presence. The alcohol (8%) is fairly well hidden in this well
made Belgium Strong Dark Ale.

Overall Rating - good  
Summit Extra Pale Ale

With a clear dark amber color and large white head that leaves
little lacing, this beer opens with a smell  of citrus and fruit.  
This quickly fades as caramel malt takes over with only hints of
some pine hop.  Fairly thin and lacking in complexity the beer
is nonetheless refreshing.  A decent session brew.

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!

Southern Tier Cream Brulee

This Imperial Milk Stout greats the nose
with butterscotch and vanilla. A syrupy
sweetness immediately emerges on first
taste with light hints of coffee in a strong
vanilla background.  This is a perfect after
dinner beer for leisurely consumption.  
The 10%ABV is nicely hidden but makes a
warming presence throughout.

Overall ratting - very good.
