For Beer Geeks And Rock Freaks

Rating: 2.5

Tags:

Dundee’s staple beer priced right for less discrimating palates. Overriding honey-soured malts turn cloy above thinly veiled hop-fueled roasted barley murk of oily moderate-bodied lager. Dewy mocha malts and unspecific citrus notes retreat to astringent vegetal nature.…

Rating: 3.5

Tags:

Frothy-headed cola-hued medium-bodied lager with chalky cocoa dryness and syrupy mocha malting builds Scotch-hopped brown ale-like essence. Slight traces of burnt wood detected amongst relaxing creamy persistence. Retains mainstream appeal while avoiding soapy tinning miring many less assertive Eastern European brews.…

Rating: 3.5

Tags:

Deep brown-hued, medium-bodied German dark lager with cocoa-smoked coffee-burnt entry and thick tobacco imprint settles for extremely parched plum tranquility. Soft ashen malt finish fits moderate template, knocking back tertiary powdered chocolate dryness effectively.…

Rating: 2.5

Tags:

Bland light-bodied bronze-hazed Euro-styled lager lacks tangible distinction. Thick round-bubbled head and expectant Sleeman creaminess exist alongside mild sugar water palate as grassy-hopped astringency lingers to honey-roasted finish. Light white-breaded toasting nearly escapes notice.…

Rating: 4

Tags:

Tart and fruity like many exceptional Belgian brews, but oak-dried cherry-raspberry dominance overrides any typecast dry white wine-like essence. Sullen grape-vined grain-malted sweetness recedes to tamped-down hop docility.…

Rating: 4

Tags:

Proud Indian reddish sienna hue bestows lactose-aided lager with virtuous burnt caramel signature, malt whiskey contour, and sugary butterscotch-vanilla-chocolate sweetness. Lilting almond nougat center reaffirms Tootsie Roll illusion. Minor chestnut-pecan notes imbue thorough finish of dessert-like session beer.…

Rating: 4

Tags:

Festive brown-bodied tan-headed dark lager retains emphatic roasted chocolate sweetness as infectious butterscotch creaminess, powdered cocoa suggestion, and tobacco leaf illusion deepen Scotch malt proclivity. Smoked wood sedation intensifies thick brown-sugared black molasses resilience to sticky hard-candied finish for slow sipping dessert treat.…

Rating: 2.5

Tags:

Red-tinted creamy-headed dark beer with 5.5% alcohol content, thin buttery malt texture, delicate hop bite, and sugared blandness. Unspecific golden ale fruiting or red ale toasting kicks in after few swallows, but lack of prolonged finish hurts resolve.…

Rating: 2

Tags:

Receding toasted oats border casual creaminess and musty earthiness as recessive raisin fluctuation dissolves under red fruited malt souring. Lack of hop assertion further hurts hazy golden Euro-styled lager.…

Rating: 4

Tags:

Sharp hop roast embitters sugary maple malt splurge, bruised orange endurance, and red fruited esters murmuring through fascinating Vienna-styled ruby-hued clear-bottled lager. Copper ale-like subtleties (faint nut, dusky mocha, tinny finish) absorb soft water crisping, mildewed earthiness, and dank charcoal-tobacco illusions.…

Rating: 2

Tags:

Musty sour yeast aroma, moderate hop bitterness, and dank cloy finish mark this light watery Armenian. Less bread-like than Rolling Rock but with a bitter Heineken-like aftertaste (minus the much needed malt pungency).…

Rating: 1

Tags:

Abhorrent 8.2% alcohol-fueled clear straw lager with uneasy initial skunked aroma and offensive cloying nature settling to soapy corn liquor-induced diacetyl flow nastier than shoddy American malt liquors.…
