Thread Details

I've given my opinion in many places about the beer's i've tasted. Might as well have a thread about it. Feel free to add.

Currently having a Shiner Blonde.

A bit too light for my tastes, but a good Spring/Summer lager. Light, crisp, not too hoppy. Kind of like a hefeweisen without all the yeast. I tasted a little lemon at the first taste. Prett good. On a scale of 1 to 10, i'd give it a 7.

had a stone "delicious" ipa last night... nothing wrong with it, but it seems unnecessary when stone puts out better ipas imo. the bartender also told someone else who ordered one that it was brewed with lemongrass. laugh out loud
i think its just good and not quite delicious... however, if you buy the bottled version of this we consider it "gluten reduced." No guarantee on the draft because if lines/sankey connections aren't clean there will definitely be measurable amounts of gluten.
Some people get lemon starburst aroma out of it, however i get an orangy mechanic soap smell.

I heard about a guy at the Flying Saucer in San Antonio called "Frank the Tank" who earned 50 saucers (200 beers = 1 saucer) and has his picture on one of them! That's 10,000 beers (minimum) that he drank - probably the cost of a sweet sports car! EEK!
That's a little ridiculous. Is that full 12/16oz pours or tastes/half pours? Even if we assume $5 a beer, that's 50k, not including extras like tips and food. Plus factor in the cost for a liver transplant after all that.


Also, do any of you guys use untappd? If so what are your names there, mine is the same as my name here.

Here's [youtube.com] a YT video tribute about him. (Ignore the first minute of it or so, that shows Will Ferrell.) Yeah, that's a ridiculous amount of beer to drink. Also, here's [facebook.com] a FB page about him.

I used to have the Untappd Android app, but I wound up uninstalling it. : \

Quite an impressive list of people congratulating him in that video. Also, sounds like flying saucer has taken care of him, sending him to GABF and some other perks.

If any of you live in South Florida, Yard House in Boca Raton (Mizner Plaza) currently has DFH120 on tap. Just had one. I would have had 2. But, I had to drive back to my hotel. Before the 120, I had a Sculpin. A good night of beer drinking! Last night, I had a couple beers at Due South. Good stuff!

had a 120 4-5 years ago and wasn't impressed...i'd drink sculpin all day though.

any homebrewers gonna enter the sam adams longshot comp? i may this year...recently kegged an american amber that turned out really well (first attempt at the recipe too). I brew probably 75% apas/ipas but i feel like amber is an under-appreciated style. (troegs hopback was the inspiration if you've had that)

Had a few new brews this week that I really enjoyed.

The first was Wormtown Bottle Rocket. It was quite interesting, sort of a cross between a very floral session IPA and a lighter pale ale. It was light and very drinkable, it would make a great warm weather brew but around here it is still too cold for that right now.

The second was from the NightShift Presidential Series. It was the Adams IPA. This brew like most of the Night Shift stuff I have tried was very interesting. The alcohol content was very well hidden and it unfiltered. It was very fruity and smooth, almost creamy. It had a melony type component that was very different from the citrusy IPAs I am used too. I did enjoy it a lot though and they are local guys that I want to support.

For anyone who likes blondes and lighter beers, I've recently discovered a few craft brews that I think are great. In my opinion these all have a good taste and are also easy to drink:

-Allagash White (Maine)
-Ska True Blonde Ale (Colorado)
-Saint Archer Blonde Ale (California)

If you like those, there are some other great options that should be fairly readily available.

Allagash White is a Witbier and pretty solid. Look at St. Bernardus Witbier, Hitachino Nest White, St. Bretta if you cam find it (crooked stave).

Ska True Blonde is an American Blonde. Some of the great ones are hard to get unless you plan on heading up to New England for Hill Famstead, Lawson, or Tree House Brewing.

Saint Archer Blonde is a Kolsch. Look at Reissdorf Kolsch, Sierra Nevada German style Kolsch, Captain's Kolsch (Captain Lawrence)
