From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
North Coast Scrimshaw Pilsner

Opens with smells of malt and hops.  First taste brought notes of baked
bread with and light fruit overtones. Clean, lemony-citrus taste
throughout, strong yeast and grassy hops as well. Pleasant cereal grain
flavor emerges at mid-taste.  The finish is everything a pilsner should be-  
crisp and dry with hints of hops.

Overall rating: very good
Uinta King's Peak Porter

Very dark, just slightly opaque and ruby when held up to the
light. Average head fades quickly to just a slight lacing.
Nose brings roasted malts, a bit of dark chocolate and caramel.
Some coffee bitterness throughout in a background of strong
dark chocolate. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. The
finish is slightly sour with hints of hops.  

Overall Rating -  good
Having sampled well over 3,500 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!  

Beers Reviewed
Stoudt's Blonde Double Maibock

Pours a bright golden color to it with hints of
light bronze.  Roasted malts and caramel
boldly upfront on first sip.  Sweet, brown
sugar tastes take over with hints of hops
and honey.  Aftertaste is appropriately sweet
for this style without being indulgent. It's
smoothness almost completely masks it's
solid 7% abv.

Overall ratting -  above average
