R to L – Paler Ale, Nebuloid, Blackberry Sour and Will Rancher. Alway a good stop when in Anaheim. Now filling crowlers to go.
My fav being the Hot Liqqa Tank, a 4.7% ABV wheat based golden ale fermented with sake yeast and hooped with Nelson hops. Michele preferred the SS Friendship, the same wheat based golden ale but with a different hop, and Over There, a malt forward dunkelweiss.
Very nice. A session pale ale with great brettanomyces characteristics. Funky barnyard, mild hops over a very pale malt body.
Belching Beaver Brewery 5th Anniversary beer. First sip fresh after pouring, the hop nose was strong, resinous and piney, with an astringent quality, making first taste a bit harsh. The strong nose dimished fairly quickly and seemed to smooth-out the flavors.
L to R, a blonde and IPAs….top to bottom…plus the BA imperial oatmeal stout on the far right. Both the La Jolla Mosaic IPA and La Lupula Blanc White IPA were both quite enjoyable…not that the others were bad, just liked the others more.
Always a good choice.
Tasty saison with light body and somewhat herbal/earthy finish.
I was quite pleased with Trader Joes 2017 Vintage Ale. I don’t recall enjoying some of the previous years versions as much. Let it warm in the glass a bit to get the most of the sweet malt character. Dangerously smooth and easy to sip for a 9% ABV beverage.
No longer on draft but cans still available. The collaboration beer from Amplified Ale Works and Alvarado Street Brewery is a damn fine beer. Juicy and hazy, with pronounced fruit/ citrus notes and moderate bitterness. Get it while you can.
A little more than half-way into today’s bike ride and some fuel was needed. After trying many, Benchmark Brewing Company Belgian-style Dubbel, was the perfect choice. Oh, don’t get me wrong. ..the table beer, the tart table beer with strawberries, their standard IPA, the Survey Series No3 IPA, and Trail Dog west coast style IPA […]
