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 …

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 …

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 …

My friend at the local beer distributor gave me a sample of John Labatt Signature Porter and Red Amber Lager. Both were very decent beers that I would drink again if given the opportunity. Here’s the Porter and Red Amber Lager reviews from RateBeer.com.

I had this beer at Outback Steakhouse. Decent beer but had very little head. At least it came in a brown bottle. I would get it again. Here’s the review from RateBeer.com.

This showed up at the beverage store and I decided to try it. I am very skeptical about beers in green bottles, but there good beers in green bottles, e.g., Pilsner Urquell, so I do not avoid them completely. I poured this beer into an English pint glass. It pours a pale golden yellow with …

I had this beer at Outback Steakhouse. Nothing special about it. I have not been real impressed with Australian beers. I guess every country has their own brand of Budweiser. Here’s the review from RateBeer.com.

I have had Carlsberg before, but never posted about it. It’s the best Danish beer that I have had. I enjoy drinking this beer in the spring and summer. I would recommend it to anyone. I poured it into a lager glass. It pours a beautiful golden with a great white head. Here’s the review …

While sitting here waiting for Monday Night Football to resume from halftime, I started listening to Dust.wav by Perpetuous Dreamer (Armin van Buuren) and I thought how Sam Adams has not made a poor beer. I have had several varieties of Sam Adams over the years and can’t think of a single variety that I …
