    16 oz. can.
    Canned 03/16/2020.
    Moderate pour yields a one and 1/2 inch white head over a slightly hazy, straw colored body with some sticky lacing. Nose of citrus (grapefruit, orange, and tangerine.) Taste of grapefruit (white, ruby red.) Very good feel and overall, a real good little IPA brewed and canned in Williston, VT.
    Cheers!!!

    Fremont -- Golden Pilsner

    [​IMG]

    4/5 rDev +1.3%
    look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

    Light, straw yellow body; active carbonation; thick and frothy white head. Soft biscuit-like aroma; a touch of fresh, green grass in the mix. The taste follows along the lines of the smell; light esters, pear-like; mild hop bitterness nicely complementing the mild malt base; very clean tasting. Light body; crisp; relatively dry overall.

    This is a fine American pilsner, delicate yet tasty, balanced and subtly complex.

    Lupulin Strictly Illegal Triple IPA, 11% ABV. Pours cloudy dark orange, with a four-finger off-white head that left foamy lacing. Nose is tropical fruits, oranges, toffee, pine, some zest. Taste is orange, toffee/caramel, berries, pine, moderately sweet, slightly bitter. Booze wasn't obvious, which could be dangerous at 11%. Smooth mouthfeel, overall outstanding. One of the best DIPAs I've had.

    4.54/5 rDev +5.3%
    look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

    Wow, NEVER thought I'd rate an IPA this high, really incredible brew. Last (hopefully) blast of winter here with 5" of snow, should be ending soon. And of course I woke up to a malfunctioning furnace. I opened it up, nothing obvious, just clicking, so I punched the damn thing - and it started working again. I've been meaning to replace it, so looks like that will happen sooner than later.

    2013. Kasteel Cuvee du Chateau. This has been aged 7 years although most of those were on a dusty shelf at a beer store where I found it stuffed away a few months ago. The original $12.99 price tag was still on it. Someone wasn't paying attention....

    Their error was my gain.

    Tasting great!
    I've been trying to support all local breweries during this COVID sh*t, but today I broke that rule.
    At least I bought it from a Mom & Pop gas station/carry-out.

    Happy Easter, Ba's!. Great to see Jolly in much more affordable cans. I love ginger and add a big chunk of fresh ginger each day to my morning smoothie. Not a big sour/barrel aged saisons guy, but this damn refreshing and tasty for $3.79 a can.

    Happy Easter, BA! Finishing off the Spring Landscapes I picked up before the weekend. Now confidently one of my favorite beers ever, a 6% abv Mint Helles Bock at a cheaper price point than usually charged for Industrial Arts' series of seasonal lagers.

    Happy Easter! German beers for me today. First pour, Rothaus Pills Tannen Zapfle, an expensive offering ($14.99 + tax for six pack) purchased at The Beer Temple Friday. Best by date 7/17/20, couldn't find on the internet how to translate to bottled date. 12.2 oz bottle poured into a tall Pilsner glass.

    [​IMG]

    Appearance: Faint clear straw color pour, one inch white bubbly creamy head leaves soapy lacing. Very heavy carbonation throughout. 3.5

    Aroma:
    Nice bold and pleasant Pilsner malt, fresh cracker, pepper, lemongrass backs well. 4.5

    Taste:
    Malt taste leads, light bread and lemongrass follows. Lightly dry and bitter. Fresh! 4.25

    Mouthfeel:
    Strong fizzy carbonation lasts throughout, light crisp clean body, mouthfeel and finish. 3.75

    Overall:
    Very good Pilsner. Pricey but still glad I grabbed a six pack. 4.0

    The weather went from cool and cloudy to warm and sunny. My wife is trying to get an early start on her tan and I’m enjoying a beer and a sandwich. Angus is doing what he does best.

    Finally grabbed this flagship from Tonewood. The can says juicy and dank. The description is correct, and I love it.

    Cheers, BA!

    An unbelievably huge and sincere thanks to @jrc1093 for this. A seriously great guy, and I consider it an honour to know him. Thank you Jake. You're something else, man.

    This barleywine is just ridiculous. There's actually a fair amount of some roasty malt here, giving it a bit of a blended strong ale vibe. It's far from a stout, but that roast adds a whole other dimension. The aroma is complex as hell, with blueberry, strawberry, and grape jam, brown sugar, caramel, oak, and bourbon, with some crazy port fruit complexity. Drinks with a restrained sweetness, a wonderful balance of bourbon and port, some dry roast, a subtle hint of hops, and serious oak tannins in the finish. Unbelievably drinkable for 13.5%. Full-bodied, but not cloying, sticky, or thick. Just a really unique barleywine, and extremely enjoyable. So glad I got to try this.

    Cheers!

    Wayfinder Beer -- Crusher Destroyer

    3.98/5 rDev -3.6%
    look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

    Clear, dark brown body; nice, slow rising carbonation; decent head, not too thick yet lasting. Nice aroma; dark roasted grain primarily; a dab of chocolate. Rich malt flavor; roasted nuts and caramel; some bitterness cutting through the sweetness. Heavy body; rich and syrupy; nice residual sugar body; fairly sweet overall with a hint of alcohol warmth.

    The can labels this as a smoked bock, but I get very little (if any) sense of smoke in the taste, and certainly none in the smell. But as a rich, malt-forward bock beer (at 7.2% ABV, it could be considered a doppelbock), it's pretty damn tasty.

    That was just like me. More beers and vinyl than I could safely get away with yesterday. There's always this thread, though, on a daily basis, and I'm sure we'll have another vinyl themed Saturday in the future.
