Beer Review: Shackmeister Ale


Beer: Shackmeister Ale
Brewer: Brooklyn Brewery

Rating: ** (6.2 of 10)
Comments: The house beer at the Shake Shack pours a beautiful amber color with lots of bubbles. The smell is sweet with fresh grains and the flavor is a malty caramel that sits somewhere between a frat house and summer in the Adirondacks.  Yummy, and good with a shroomburger.

Beer Review: Post Road Pumpkin Ale

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.
