From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Big Eddy Wee Heavy

This is a scotch ale from Leinenkugel Brewing.  At 9.5 % ABV it's
a solid if undistinguished offering.  It has a moderate sweetness
with flavors of buckwheat,  peat, sorghum, roasted toffee, and
cocoa. Finish brings some spice, light banana,  and more smoky
peat.  Mouthfeel is thin for the style.    

Overall rating:-  Above Average
Lagunitas Sucks

This is an American Double IPA that weight in at a somewhat
modest for the style 7.8% ABV. It opens with smells of grapefruit,
and other citrus.  Taste is an avalanche of pineapple, grapefruit,
orange, mangos, papaya, fresh lemon, sweet pine, and light floral
hops underneath.  Crisp, clean, and very dry finish. Body is
moderate to thin for a DIPA making even more drinkable.  One of
the best beers I've ever rated for BeerNexus.  Simply
great stuff!!

Overall Rating -  Excellent
Having sampled nearly 4,000 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!

Sly Fox Seamus Irish Red

An Irish Red Ale (5.6%)pour an appropriate
red-brown.  Smells of bread and slightly
bitter malts. Taste is somewhat sweet with
caramel up front followed by roasted malt
and lightly burnt toast.  Finish brings biscuit
notes with a light vanilla sweetness.  
Drinkable but bland and uninspired.
