Beer Review #40: Common Roots Daylight

Style: Imperial IPA.

ABV: 8%

My thoughts: Mild hop scent. And that’s about the best I can say about it. It tastes like a chemical spill. I guess it has an aftertaste who knows make it stop I am going to drink this as fast as possible and forget it ever existed.

Beer Review #38: Captain Lawrence Tears of Green

Style: IPA.

ABV: 7.8%

My thoughts: Strong citrus scent. Interesting fruity flavor. It’s very sweet and the hop flavor is almost nonexistent. It’s very smooth and almost creamy. No indication of its ABV. The finish is clean and there’s an almost fresh taste to it, sort of like a fresh and juicy fruit salad. This is a fantastic beer!

Beer Review #37: Barrage The Goddess

Style: Berliner weiss sour.

ABV: 3.2%

My thoughts: First, let me say WTF at this ABV. Is this even beer? It certainly smells pretty fucking sour. Well, it’s mouth puckeringly sour. So… Yeah… There’s almost something sweet when you first sip it, but it’s gone so quick I am not sure if I’m imaging it. The rest is just the sour of a fruit that’s gone bad. Strong carbonation. It’s quite dry. The finish is, as one might expect, more sour, but at least it vanishes quickly. I white girl can’t even with this.

Beer Review #35: Sixpoint Barrel Aged 3beans (2017)

Style: Baltic porter.

ABV: 10.1%

My thoughts: Moderate, almost cocoa scent. Nice flavor, notes of mild coffee with an undertone of chocolate and bourbon. More carbonation than I expected, but it plays nicely with the flavor. Full body, but not too rich. Somewhat creamy. Slight coffee bitter aftertaste that dissipates quickly.

Beer Review #34: Long Ireland Beer Chocolate Porter

Style: Porter.

ABV: 5.8%

My thoughts: Weird metallic scent. Weird metallic flavor too. Aside from that, there doesn’t seem to be any other flavor in here, certainly not any chocolate. It’s super watery and thin, which is just plain wrong for a porter. It’s also quite carbonated. The aftertaste is metallic as well, just like the rest of this apparently metal based beer. This is no good.

Beer Review #30: Saranac Pale Ale

Bottle description: Deliciously rich and flavorful, this is a complex brew with an easy going taste. A happy contradiction in a bottle.

ABV: 5.5%

My thoughts: I drank this mofo right out of the bottle. I was in a trivia competition, you see, and losing quite badly. There was no time for glasses! That said, let’s move on to the beer itself. This ale had a very light hop aroma. There’s a mild tartness with a typical hoppy bite. It’s an average IPA that’s a little too bitter at the end for my taste. It’s highly carbonated and feels quite crisp. I wish there was more to say about this, given how much I liked their pumpkin ale, but this is unfortunately a pretty average beer.
