    Good morning, all. As expected, I can't sleep, so I'm going to cut right into the coffee with a classic.

    Just finished a late breakfast with Mrs. Z. She has returned to bed...today may be a stay at “home” day. Trappist Westvleteren 12:



    The sun is trying to poke its head out from the clouds; otherwise, it’s grey, windy and about 61 degrees at noon here...I’m going to hang some wet laundry...Cheers and have a great Friday!

    Clear light gold color with white cap and lacing.

    Aroma of mild sweet malt and floral hops.

    Taste is mild to mid malt with a spicy kick from the hops. Some elements of yeast bread and fresh hay with a dry, crisp finish.

    Liight-mediuum texture with balancing carbonation.

    Clean, pleasant take on a food and company friendly lager.

    Finally broke down and grabbed a $5/4 pack of these. Very nice.

    Definitely deserves better than its 3.6 rating here. I assumed ratings were low because of the old green bottles, but there are sub 3 reviews on the front page. Twice the character of an AAL at 4.4% ABV. Sign me up. Cheers all!

    Stone Ruination from Berlin. Not over-exited yet by these Berlin versions from Stone. Still very good of-course. But it's like something is missing. I probably have to get used to the fresher taste :wink:

    The wife rallied (she had a pedicure appt. in town) so we walked off the hill and I found the only local craft beer bar (so I am told) and had a couple of half pints. Now back at the ranch trying BrewDog’s “Elvis Juice”, a grapefruit infused IPA:



    Thin body, but grapefruity! A little bitter zest, but mostly watered down grapefruit juice. In a pinch, I’d drink again (6.5%) and it’s cheap enough at the grocer - L 1.85/ 330ml.

    Earlier this afternoon - “Yu Lu” a session ale on cask, from Siren Craft Beers.



    Strong Grapefruit nose. However, the lite citrus taste is overwhelmed by strong floral/herbal hop taste; not bitter, just off-putting cooked veggies...pity, the look and nose were so inviting...

    This is the second beer (and second IPA) I’ve had from this small brewery and I’ve thoroghly enjoyed both beers. It is 8% and drinks easily, but not too much so. Focused on tropical fruit flavors, but also has nice grapefruit citrus and peach without being too sweet. Features some dryness, and just enough alcohol to add flavor that nicely complements the hops and malt profile. Very good stuff.

    Clear light yellow gold color with white cap and lacing.

    Aroma of sweet malt and new mown hay.

    Taste is a somewhat simple combination of malt with floral, spicy hops. These are good flavors well intertwined consisting mostly of bready malt with light yeasty touches all sprinkled with hop spicing.

    Light-medium texture with balancing carbonation.

    Overall it's a good stab at the Pilsner style incorporating spicy, floral hops into a solid malt base. Should make a good companion for food and other purposes.

    At the Wicked Weed Funkatorium in Asheville, Bombadile, a 4.2% sour ale with strawberries, was my favorite beer of the many I drank.

    I just so happens I have that option today, along with a mixed green salad with grilled salmon and strawberries. A perfect complement.

    The aroma is powdery, sweet strawberry, sweet rose watery funkyness, damp mustiness, with just a hint of summer farmyard. It’s a light and crisp beer with green strawberry tartness, moderate acidity and some earthy funkyness. A very approachable Brett beer I’d say.

    Drinking a new Czech lager from the monopoly. It's 4.6% abv and I guess with the 11 on the can one can expect that the OG is at least 11%? It's golden verging on amber colored similar to alot of Czech lager beers. There's some diacetyl, malt (some mild roastiness) and hops in the aroma. In the flavor there's predominantly maltiness (tastes like there's caramel malt in there), a light sweetness, a refreshing bitterness and some mild but pleasant hop flavor. All in all a tasty Czech lager beer which seems like a good compromise between flavor and abv.

    In between trips to school for the kids' walkathon. Making lunch, drinking another big can of IPA. The glass really does affect this beer – the last can I have from this batch is not as malty as the other three, which were all drank in different style glasses. I really enjoyed this the first two times I bought it, this batch was not as good, but I will gladly buy it when it comes around again.

    Dinner/dishes/kitchen cleaned. Nice British Lager here:



    A bit watery, but nothing off and it is cold and thirst quenching. That’s Wesley, one of “our” cats this stay, and curious about beer pics.

    I thought I recognized the brewery name. In Williamsburg, VA. I remember going there years ago when they were basically a mom and pop shop. Brewed just three beers. Not so today.
