Beer Review: Allagash White Ale


Beer: Allagash White
Brewer: Allagash Brewing Company
Source: Draft
Rating: ** (6.1 of 10)

Comments: This is cloudy, bright yellow beer with spicy, citrus aromas & flavors.  It’s a nice balance although my glass tasted somewhat weak and flat compared to previous tries of this beer.  Perhaps a bad keg or a bad pour?  At any rate, a decent refreshing beer.

Beer Review: Inkwell Imperial Stout

Comments: Another beer sampled on our Martha’s Vineyard weekend.  The beer had the blackness of its name and style, but flavor-wise it was lacking the stout punch.  Other than some chocolaty overtones I found it tasted weak and watery.  I was disappointed by this beer.
