Georgetown Roger’s Pilsner

Georgetown Brewing Company, Seattle, WA 4.9% ABV Clear gold in color with a sweet, malty nose that reminds Fr. Jack of a sweet pastry.  Almost fruity for a Pilsner: like apple juice which we associate with ESB.  Easy to drink.  Low ABV for a Pilsner or any lager for that matter.  Almost like a very…

Goose Island Preseason Lager

Goose Island Beer Co., Chicago, Il; Baldwinsville, NY; Fort Collins, Co. 5.8% Preseason Lager is a clear amber color, which is pretty dark for a lager.  It also smells quite complex.  Curiously enough, it tastes like an amber lager.  It reminds us of Negro Modelo, but more bitter.  We kind of like it!  The bitterness…

St. Arnold Art Car IPA

St. Arnold Brewing Company, Houston, TX 7.1% ABV Clear amber in color with a faint nose of hops.  Light bodied for an IPA.  Father Jack thinks it tastes like a baby Double IPA while Large Marge believes it is an IPA on the fruity side of the spectrum.  Fruity and malty with bitterness at the…

Terrapin Rye Pale Ale

Terrapin Beer Company, Athens, GA At Terrapin, our Rye Pale Ale was the first beer we ever introduced.  Dry hopped with a generous portion of Amarillo hops, and brewed using a touch of malted rye, we have achieved a beer with a dynamic hop character and a remarkably clean finish that is sure to be…

Bell’s Oatsmobile Ale

Bell’s Brewery, Inc., Comstock, MI Aromatic.  Approachable.  Unique.  Intriguing.  Happy-go-lucky.  Full-bodied.  And we’re not just talking about the horse. 4.3% ABV Clear amber in color with a nose that reminds us of a rye beer.  Almost tastes like Rye Ale, but lighter.  Got a bit of a bite at the aftertaste, but that is about…

Southbound Desert Dawn Belgian-Style Saison

Southbound Brewing Company, Savannah, GA 5.3% ABV Ruby red in color with a nose that reminds us of lambic.  Very subtle wheat backbone with the fruit on top: like a biscuit covered with jam.  Could use a little more fruit.  Very drinkable.  Aftertaste almost has a drying effect like tea. Would we have this again?…
