From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Blue Point Spring Fling

This American Pale Ale (6% ABV) bring a herbal, malty,slightly resiny
nose.  The taste starts out with sweet flavors of caramel and citrus followed
by a strong but not over-powering hops presence. The malt character is
strong enough to provide a decent balance. The finish is slightly hoppy with
some sweetness.  A decent but unchallenging brew.

Overall rating:-  Above Average
Dogfish Head Namaste

Smells of lemon, coriander, and orange zest greet you as this hazy
golden witbeer hits the glass.  Refreshing clean flavors of wheat,
yeast, citrus and spice harmonize with coriander and the
lemongrass. It has a nicely intergreated hop profile that builds to a  
dry finish featuring lemon and orange peel.  A very
quaffable,refreshing, well-made beer.   

Overall Rating -  Very Good
Having sampled well over 3,750 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!

Harpoon Celtic Ale

This "Irish Red" (5.4%ABV)pours a bright
copper/red with a fluffy white head. First
smells are of caramel,grain, and malts.  
First sip bring a moderate sweetness that is
only slightly cut by emerging hop flavors.  
Caramel notes with ripe apples take over
and lead to a slightly dry, sweet finish.  Most
flavors are subdued throughout.  A decent
but uninteresting beer.
