Boulevard Pilsner (4.8% ABV)

This beer begins its pour in a tremendously effervescent way, which will ensure a solid inch-plus head in a pilsner glass, no matter how carefully individuals pour. The continual bubbliness of the beer is a sight to see, while there is little in the way of nose to speak of. The first taste of the Boulevard Pilsner provides imbibers with two distinct sides. First off, there is a decidedly run-of-the-mill…

Breckenridge Summerbright Ale (Beer)

After we opened up the beer side of the alcohol review section, I found myself in a serious quandary. We were receiving some seriously full-body beers, and were not getting too much in the way of more mild or properly seasonal types of efforts. The Summerbright beer is the perfect middle ground between these tremendously deep and full-bodied beers and the more familiar, macro styles of portable bread. Saying that,…

Avery: The Reverend (Quadrupel Ale)

This beer retails at around $6-7, and it provides quite a kick considering that it clocks in at 10%. Take that into consideration with the fact that it’s a bomber, and one has essentially 4 beers under one’s belt after killing this bottle. The light coloring of the beer itself belies this heavy alcohol content, as the head quickly dissipates. The Reverend comes through with a decently light nose, one…

Mothership Wit (Beer)

For those crunchy individuals, New Belgium’s Mothership Wit is the brewery’s first organically-crafted beer. Where it seems like in the last few years that companies have been more than happy to slap an organic tag on a shoddily-produced or crafted good, New Belgium has made one of the best beers that I’ve had this year. The white head and incredibly lightly-colored yellow of the beer itself hide how delectable the…

India Pale Ale (6.30% ABV)

It just strikes me that a number of IPAs have not been done right in the slightest. The bitterness that I have experienced form some of these efforts nearly put me off to the style, but Avery has done much with their IPA to bring me back into the flock. Upon pouring this beer, there is a clearish gold tint to the beer itself, while the inviting foam of the…

Out of Bounds Stout (5.1% ABV)

There is a nice, light tan head that pours with decently thick lacing, with a very light nose present outside of the bottle. The initial taste is a blend of toasted coffee and chocolate, having more in the way of bite compared to other stouts. Where the Out of Bounds Stout weighs in as a lighter ABV than a number of microbrewery stouts and heavier than some traditional (English, Irish)…

Honey Brown (Beer)

Honey Brown is a beer that has always been approachable in price while still having a pretty solid flavor and taste when compared to microbrewery efforts, but I must admit that I hadn’t had one in a few years. We were lucky to hook up with Honey Brown’s publicist a few days ago and get a sample shipped out. After chilling out in the fridge, we were able to give…

Lazy Magnolia Southern Pecan (4.02% ABV)

While we have had a few nut and brown ales over the course of our post-21 years, I feel that the Southern Pecan Nut Brown Ale put out by Lazy Magnolia is one of the beast efforts that we have tasted in the style. The label itself is fairly nondescript, blending tan with brown lettering, while the beer’s color is rendered invisible by the brown color of the bottle.

Alamo Golden Ale (Beer)

Alamo Beer seems to be the perfect blend of larger beer and home-brewed / microbrewed styles. There is an easy drinking taste to it that will appease fans of Budweiser and Samuel Adams like, while there is a smoothness that makes the aftertaste into something like the lightest of porters. When pouring, there is a strong golden color to the beer itself while pouring a very small head, while initial…

Original Orange Blossom Ale (5.8 ABV)

Buckbean has taken a bold step in their creation of a Orange Blossom Ale, and it may just be the most challenging beer I have honestly had. There is a very mild taste to the beer that allows the Orange Blossom taste to shine through, but one wonders what would honestly happen if there was a little more assertive beer taste present. As it is, there seems to be a…
