From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Unibroue Ephemere (apple)

This refreshing brew pours a straw yellow color with a nose of apples,
fruits, and sweet malt.   The clear, but subtle, flavor of green apples
quickly blends into soft malty sweetness. Pleasant, slightly sour orange
notes along with coriander, emerge near the mid-sip.  The final notes bring
a dry, crisp, hop finish with lingering notes of green apples.  
Very freshing; one of the better fruit beers on the market today.

Overall rating: good.
Olde Brunside's Ten Penney Ale

This beer might be described as a hopped up Scotch ale.  It  
opens with a nose of caramel earthiness, rye malt, citrus, and
grass.  First taste brings nuts, bread, yeast, and malt.  Roasted
malt, herb, vanilla, and toffee flavors take over but are kept in
check by a well placed grassy hoppiness.  An overall
creaminess appears in a firm finish.  This is a well crafted brew.

Overall Rating -  very 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!

Avery Ellie's Brown

This dark brown-reddish hued beer opens
with a malty-nutty aroma and hints of
caramel. The caramel continues throughout
the taste along with chocolate, malts, nuts,
and sweet bread.  Hops are subtle at best
and do little to cut the overall leaning to
sweetness.  A very solid brew but not
much more.

Overall rating -  above average
