|Gaslight Awarded Gold Medals!
The Beverage Tasting Institute has awarded
Gaslight's head brewer DJ Soboti three gold medals!
DJ's Satan Claws, Slalom Ale, and Extra Special Bitter each scored
over 90 points to earn the Institute's highest award.
According to the judges, Satan Claws had "an avalanche of sweet
malty, fruit notes, full bodied with a lush, sikly texture. It was
perfetly balanced. A winner!" The Slalom Ale had " aromas of fresh
toasted grain and just baked bread....was well balanced with a mild
off-dry ale fruitiness. Very clean with a crip, refreshing finish." The
Extra Special Bitter was full bodied and dry with notes of earth,
mineral, evergreen, and edgy hop bittness. Nicely proportioned."
Congratulations from the entire beernexus team to DJ Soboti!!

|The DB15 May meeting - All these for me?
|YES, - if you were at May's Retro Tasting
Fans of Pabst and the retro labels they produce packed the DB15
meeting in May. Each member was treated to full flights of eight
American lagers, one ale, and four malt liquors. Selected by beernexus
writer Dan Hodge, the brands were representative of the nearly forty
labels owned by Pabst Brewing Co., the fourth largest in the nation.
The array of beverages included Schmidts, Ballantine Ale, Piels, Old
Milwaukee, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Schaefer, Carling Black Label, McSorleys,
Piels, Camo (Ale and Lager), St. Ives, Colt 45, and Steel Reserve. While
it was a struggle for most members to select the best beer (for obvious
reasons) PBR and Old Milwaukee seemed to have the edge. Agreement
on the malt liquors was quickly reached however as Camo was declared
even more undrinkable than the others.
After the tasting the first part of the feature film hit American Beer, a
documentary by director Paul Kermizi was shown on the Gaslight's giant
screen. The film, generously provided by Brian Lynch, was everything a
beer movie should be - funny, informative, and thirst provoking.
