    Haha I know...$11.99 here for a bottle of beer seems excessive. I'm drinking it right now though, and it is fantastic. Very well balanced, great flavor, with malty, light caramel, citrus, and apple flavors coming through to me. A very rich beer.

    Re: What Beer are you drinking summer 2011

    Recently my brother gave me some of a growler of watermelon ale that he got from the Thomas Hooker brewery and it was quite good despite sounding awful. Sadly they don't sell this anywhere by me but I found something similar called Hell or High Watermelon from 21st Amendment brewery, which is almost as good. Been kind of taking a break from bourbon and rye, for the past few months it's just been beer and tequila.

    I'm sorry, but I couldn't wait any longer. Pulled the trigger on a case of Sam Adams Octoberfest from Costco, and am a couple into it. They really do a spectacular job with this Seasonal.

    Cool Re: What Beer are you drinking summer 2011

    This afternoon was a scorcher, surpassing 100 F. I had a nice, cold Sol. Not a great beer, but certainly a great thirst quencher.

    Thanks, Joe. I have been waiting for this report. I'm a fan, too, and look forward to tasting it.

    I think it's a good seasonal beer too, but I have to wait until football season officially begins to start drinking this (and no, preseason doesn't count!).

    I just couldn't help it, Jack. Like I've said before, my daughter's sheltie has more self-control than I do!

    Re: What Beer are you drinking summer 2011

    Broke my Guinness fixation tonight. Well, partly, I still came away with two of the imported bottles instead of the 12 oz bottles. Also found some Westmalle tripel, Samuel Smith Taddy porter and some Saint Arnold at the local Majestic.

    Haven't tried the other two, but the Taddy Porter is great.
