Every Friday at 8:10am we feature a new beer and taste it. Me buddy Chad give our opinions however novice and/or snobby they may be. Why? Because it's fun, and haven't you've always wanted to try out that weird looking beer on the top shelf? So have we. We'll do it for you. Everyone wins! You can also play along at home, or simply buy after we try. Make sure you pick your beer up at Spec's. That's where we shop!
Our rating scale is SUPER simple. Anyone can understand it. It's a scale of 1 to 10.
1 = Ass Juice
10 = Unicorns and Rainbows
Depending on the flavor, packaging, hoppiness, maltiness, and pure snobbery, we place the beers somewhere on this sliding scale. Purchase the beers ahead of time, and play along!
A hoppy beer without the hoppy bite AND a high alcohol beer without the gritty, sugary alcohol flavor??!!!
Is this beer from HEAVEN??!!?
Where has this beer been all my life?? Now, the price point might bother you, it's $9.99 for a 4-pack, but if you enjoy GOOD beer, that shouldn't be a problem.
Especially the fact that this beer is SOOOOO smooth, and soooo full of punch, I don't really see why I have been drinking anything else. I'm gonna go buy some more today. I think I've told you how much I enjoy certain beers over previous weeks, but I don't think I've ever recommended a beer this much. That's because I know beer drinkers of any flavor or style will be able to agree on this one, and after one, EVERYONE will be friends.
Seriously, this is a winner.
And now, the scores:
Nothing like enjoying a yummy beer with an old friend. And that's just what this was. It's got PINEAPPLE in it. WHAT??!!!?? I got a sixer of this at Spec's, and to be honest I picked it out, because I'm not sure I've ever even HAD a Hawaiian beer before.
And, maybe it's time to not have an IPA for once. :)
This has a light, sweet nose to it, and a sweet taste (thanks to the pineapple). As most of you should know by now, sweets and sugars turn me off, but I still gave this an okay score, because the wheat was able to set off the sweetness just enough for me to make this an easy-drinking beer. A dessert beer for me, but those of you who like your beer with a hint of citrus or fruit will LOVE this. It's been balanced well.
And now, the scores:
What a fun Beer For Breakfast! I LOVE how inquisitive Kevin was about beer and all the different types there are, and I really loved the kind that Chad brought in for us to taste: St. Arnold's Weedwacker. Get it?? Cuz Kevin was on "Weeds"???!!! Heh heh.
Even though we eventually found out that we're all dorks and none of us smoke weed. All well.
Doesn't mean we can't enjoy a good brew. All in all, this came off as a nice, light summery brew that is a great change of pace for a small, crafthouse brewery. For those of you who turn their nose up to the heavy/strong tastes of craft beers, this should be a crowd pleaser. It's a great drink for a hot day, easy on the palate, and goes down easy with not a drop of heaviness.
Here's the scores:
Kevin Nealon 8.3
