Coors Third Shift Amber Lager and Batch 19 Lager

I was given a couple of sampler bottles of two new test market offerings from Coors; one called Batch 19 Pre-Prohibition Style Lager and the other called Third Shift Band of Brewers Amber Lager. Both poured a golden color with a white head that dissipated quickly. The body was similar to a macro style lager …

Svytury’s Baltijos

Birdsboro Beverage Company had a beer tasting today.  It was before noon, but I won’t get into that.  After some mild twisting of my arm, I decided to give it a go. They were offering some different varieties of Svytury, a Lithuanian beer company located in Klaipėda, Lithuania. They were offering: Baltas – an unfiltered …

Beck’s Oktoberfest

For the third year in a row, Beck’s Oktoberfest is still one of the best brews of the season.

Warsteiner Oktoberfest

After having Beck’s, Stoudts, Sam Adams, Iron Hill, and a few other Oktoberfest brews, I decided to try something new this September.  The beer pours a rich deep amber color with a modest white head.  The first taste had me twist my head just a bit.  The taste is grassy and floral as I expected, …

Stoudts Oktober Fest

Finally got around to picking up a case of Stoudt’s Oktober Fest.  It’s still a high quality brew that never disappoints.

Beck’s Oktoberfest

Just a quick note to say that Beck’s Oktoberfest is as good this year as it was last year.  I can’t wait for Stoudts to distribute theirs.

Border Cafe in Cambridge

I had dinner at the Border Cafe in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA this evening with my cousin and co-workers.  The food was excellent, and the beer and margaritas were refreshing.  It was a rainy humid day in Boston so the restaurant was a bit on the warm side, but the lighthearted atmosphere, good friends, and …

Sol

Sol was recommended to me by my wife’s cousin, and what a great recommendation.  This Mexican import is a great, light tasting lager that is easily the best Mexican beer I have had.  It compares with Tecate and Dos Equis.   Mild in flavor, with a crisp bite on the way down.  This will make …

Intercourse Bareville Pilsner

I regret having ordered this beer.  It was pale in color with a tall, white head.  It had an odd aroma and a finish that made me smack my lips and say, “What is this?”   I wouldn’t wish this beer on anyone. Here’s the review at RateBeer.com.

Peroni Nastro Azzurro

Another beer I had at Da Vinci’s Pub was Peroni Nastro Azzuro at the advice of a colleague.  It poured a clear gold color with a tall, bright white head.  This beer had a definite macro brew ‘nothing special’ flavor.   The only difference between this and other mass produced American lagers is that this …
