    Goat Patch Brewing Co. -- Maibock

    [​IMG]

    4.15/5 rDev 0%
    look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

    Clear, copper hued body; thin yet lasting head; decent sheets of foam step down the glass. Beautiful aroma of toasted grain; a bit of caramel; slighty nut-like. The taste follows the aroma along with additional hop bitterness. Medium body; smooth with just an edge of coarseness; malt warmth with a touch of alcohol dryness.

    A warm, balanced and mighty tasty offering, perfect for a late winter afternoon.

    And picking up a crowler of their triple IPA...

    Classic art on the label, very nostalgic.

    I am envious that you get to drink this nectar!

    I've done this a couple of times. What fun. In fact, my BA icon is an image of the first time I did this with Younger on the left and Elder on the right.

    Masthead Brewing - Falling Fruit (5.8% Fruit and Field Beer) - My overall rating = 4.17

    [​IMG]

    Having this near Pittsburgh, PA from a 16oz canned on 2019-07-11
    A - Peach-gold with a 1-finger white head that drops quickly leaving little lace
    S - Sweet ripe peach. Bread crust. Honey. Floral. Very nice
    T - Peach, slightly-tart apple juice, honey, light bread. Grassy/herbal spice. Mildly bitter. These flavors suit me well.
    M - Medium body and light-medium carbonation. Smooth. Not dry on the finish.
    O - I really enjoyed this beer even though you could almost have it at breakfast in lieu of fruit juice. It still tastes like beer, not cider and it isn't like a juicy NEIPA. Well done. Will have this again.

    Masthead is kinda like Goathead, which reminds me of Billy Strings for you Goat fans! Check out his Dust In A Baggie song:

    Cost + 10 is a luscious AIIPA from Other Half. I assume $10 is the mark up, although I have never paid it myself, simply acquired and traded. Not sure what the burro is all about, but hope it wasn't this:

    Fremont makes a pale ale called Sky Kraken, haven't seen any oversized sealife fighting dirigibles in mid-air here. Yay for crazy can art is all I can say.

    I'm not really feeling this thread like I used to, yet I can't stay away. I guess I'm just a creature of habit after all.

    This is a really nice old school Pale Ale at a great price point that actually kinda reminds me of SNPA.

    Only real knock I have with this one is the light bodied feel. The Bruery nailed the cherry pie thing.
