    Whale's Tail Pale Ale from Cisco Brewers in Nantucket. Mighty nice!

    Another unusual taste in the Immort Ale is smoke, which comes from peated barley. What did you think? To me, it's the messiest beer I've ever had, but it's so much fun to drink.

    Just for a change, Carlsberg Lager, we get it canned and bottled imported from Denmark in 2-3 months from packaging (draft too).

    It's all-malt and a good formula. Not a worldbeater, but well made with some nice subtle tastes. I've had so many wonky craft beers that I appreciate, of occasion, a well-made, mass market import like this.

    Re: What Beer Are You Drinking? - Winter 2011/2012

    My sister in law just started drinking beer again, and I took her a care package of some of the ales I like: St Arnold dark, Westmalle tripel, Stone smoked porter, a couple of Rahr's.

    She found a Thai beer that she really likes, so she gave me my care package back, and threw in bottles of Crispins cider, Thai beer and Virgil's rootbeer. I'm intgerested in trying out the Thai beer and the cider (last hard cider I've had was Woodpecker). I've already tried the Virgils, but I like it (I went on a rootbeer search a couple years ago - never did find one I liked as well as the defunct Snappple version).

    All in all, Yum!

    Good ol' Genesee Cream Ale last night. Sometimes it's good to keep it simple.

    Sam Adams Alpine Spring. Not bad, not great. I really wish we could get the SA Double Bock. It hasn't been available around here for a few years, for some reason.

    I've been sitting out in the back yard with Mrssmokinjoe on a gloriously sunny 60 degree day here, sippin' on one of these Alpine Springs myself. I agree E. Not bad, not great, but enjoyable. Also, a Leffe Blonde. I continue to enjoy this beer, as well. Switching soon to bourbon in time for din-din.

    One of the local Black IPAs we see increasingly in our market. It's a style I like a lot, basically an American Pale Ale/IPA-type beer, i.e., strong on citric West Coast hops, with some black patent or other colouring or roasted agent to give it a black hue and just a touch of roast in the taste. It should not really be (IMO) a citric porter because that is a variant of porter and stout, not IPA, but if anyone makes a Black IPA that's more in the porter vein I won't tell. End of the day, if it's good it's good.

    FFF 2010 Dark Lord RIS. It mellowed over two years as I expected, but has lost some of the coffee/ roastiness, and is sweeter than I would have expected.
