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, …

Silverado Vineyards

Type: Chardonnay Year: 2007 Location: Napa County, California Link: silveradovineyards.com Rating: 8 out of 10 Opinion: Very good chardonnay comprised of fruit from vineyards in the Napa Valley into Carneros. Minimal oak flavor as to not overpower the fruit. Hints of golden apple and pear aroma with green apple, lemon zest, and honeysuckle flavors provide …

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 …

Magic Hat #9

While having dinner at Da Vinci’s Pub in Collegeville, PA, I browsed the beer selection, and choose a different beer each time.  The first beer I decided upon was Magic Hat #9.  Although I am not a big fan of fruit beers, this brew was well balanced and the citrus flavor in the beer did …
