I got to try this yesterday at The Pheonix in Hamilton.....on one of their rotating taps right now. I definitely agree with Jesse and I was unexpectedly impressed. Very well balanced for a fruit based beer. The sweetness of the berry was not overwhelming, ample malts were present with really pleasan...

I just finished a side-by-side comparison and the ST had way more flavour and way more of an aroma than the DFH 60. However, from my recollection when I had them individually and from my tasting notes, I can say that I liked the DFH 60 a lot more. A few others have said it before, but I think that t...

What a great American IPA! After being a little disappointed by the Southern Tier I only picked up a sixer of the Dogfish. Now I'm disappointed that I only picked up the sixer. I could drink a lot of these really fast. Found it at my local tonight with Adnams Broadside. Happy Day!

I bought 3 of these from Cooper Street location in late July. The first 2 were great. Tonight I opened my last one to do a side-by-side comparison with the Brakspear Bitter. This bottle of Stuart's was quite sour and that sourness was not there in the other 2 bottles.....same notes were in the aroma...

I usually opt for #2. If the beer stinks, there's always giny-gin-gin. However, I find the real dillema at sporting events, rather than at bars. Sometimes the situation just necessitates beer, you can't get wine or spirits at all or the those that you can get are equivilant to the crap beer you are ...

Yesterday, a few Dead Guy's and a Ommegang Ommegeddon. Tonight, all the talk of new Brooklyn products has me priming myself with a few of their largers before I delve into a Don De Dieu.

Yep, definitely the case with most beers and you are right, the flavour profile did change a little as it warmed. However, I've got my bar fridge steady at 4 degrees C (give or take a little based on the area of the fridge). Poured half of that beast before eating, put the bottle back in the fridge,...

I tried the Jacobsen Saaz for the first time tonight as well. If ever I've experienced a beer in need of a food pairing, it was with this. I started the bottle while BBQ'ing some chicken breast for a home-made caesar salad tonight and thought "Meh. This is an overly grainy, poor imitation of a ...

Wow, this one out "weirds" the Edelweiss by a long shot. Interesting, but very unbalanced. Aroma is overwhelmingly orange. A little clove and corriander, but mostly orange. Flavour, on the other hand is a little orangy, but mostly corriander......like drinking a tea made of nothing but cor...

Don't know if this helps at all, but I did pick up 6 of the Big Dog Porter's from the brewery a few weeks ago. The bottle doesn't have a traditional label, only a small piece of green paper attached with a rubber band around the neck with the name of the beer, a small logo and the alcohol %. It was ...

Oh, if only we had, say, a "store" that sold "beer" and had the mandate to refrigerate all of said beer. Wow, that's a great idea. I would totally jump all over that! I'd have the inital fear that the Ontario government would probably turn it into a provincially sponsored monopol...

Just noticed Brussel's White come up on the LCBO website for the first time today, but without any cities listed as having any yet. Hopefully it's only a few days away. I've been looking forward to trying this all summer, even if it has been in a warehouse for 2 months.

Bell's is pretty much my favorite brewery ever. The Two Hearted was the first IPA that I had that made me go "holy shit, is this what an IPA is supposed to taste like? What the hell have I been drinking?" I had a friend from London that used to work in Kalamazoo and she would bring me back...

I picked up a ton ot Rogue products from out West about a month ago and I am actually enjoying my first Hazelnut Brown Nectar right now. Lots of roasted, chocolately malts and smokey hazelnut, but not sickly sweet or overpowering and a truely brilliant creamy full mouthfeel. Man, I cannot wait to st...
