Rating: *** (7.3 of 10)
Comments: This beer is cloudy, golden, and bubbly with a pleasant grainy, musty barn aroma.  The flavor is sweet and spicy with hints of citrus, grass, and banana.  It’s refreshing with a light mouthfeel.  A classy take on the saison.


Beer Review: Stone Coffee Milk Stout

Comments: Charcoal black with a thick cream head.  The smell, appropriately, is like freshly-roasted coffee beans.  The coffee flavor isn’t strong but this is definitely a well-balanced stout, smooth and sweet.  The head dissipates rapidly and leaves no lace.

Comments: This bubbly amber-colored beer with a thick head smells of cinnamon spice, and has an appropriately sweet pumpkin flavor up front with a bitter aftertaste.  There’s light lacing, bit of a lingering head, and a light mouthfeel.  Definitely a pumpkin delight for the season.

Comments: I quaffed a stein of this seasonal beer, which is copper in color with lots of bubbles and a thin head.  It offers a mild, grainy aroma and has a nice graham cracker flavor with a hint of honey followed by an acidic aftertaste.  Nice lacing on the glass.  This is your basic Oktoberfest Märzen and good for the occasion.



Beer Review: Cambridge Brewing Bo-Steam-Ian Lager

Comments: An interesting blend of beers bringing together the Czech pilsner with the California-style steam beer.  The beer has a rich golden color with a bit of haziness, but not much head. The aroma is an earthy bread crust.  The taste is reminiscent of sweet pasty but with a spicy, fruity tang. There’s just enough hops bitterness for balance, but not enough to overwhelm the beer. The beer has a medium mouthfeel and leaves behind a light lacing.  This is a well-crafted and tasty experiment.

This amber ale is a comforting cloudy copper brown. The aromas include a biscuit scent with hints of fruit.  The taste is bready with a peppery finish and a sweet caramel aftertaste.  It’s a well-balanced brew that fills the mouth with flavor.  My kind of beer.

Rating: *** (7 of 10)
Comments: A hazy orange beer, with very little head.  The aroma is citrus fruit with a bit of earthy yeast.  The taste is tangy with spiciness and pepper flavor, balanced with sweet toffee.  The mouthfeel is light.  Overall this beer has a nice farmhouse aura to it.
