Diesel Sixpoint Craft Ales Review By Z.P.

Diesel
Sixpoint Craft Ales
ABV – 6.3%
Appearance – Dark Mahogany.
Smell – Hops through and through.
Taste – Hops at first then we get some roasted grains in the middle with a lingering sticky piney flavor.
Mouthfeel – Sticky.
Drinkability – It is drinkable. Not my favorite though.
Closing Notes – I have heard a lot about this brewery, and most of it good, but for me this beer just wasn’t pleasing to most of my palate. I would try their other beers though.
Overall – 2.0

Hell or High Watermelon
21st Amendment
ABV – 4.9
Appearance – Slightly hazy very yellow.
Smell – Smell yeasty.
Taste – This taste like creamy watermelon. That is it all the way trough.
Mouthfeel – Creamy.
Drinkability – It goes down easy.
Closing Notes – If you like watermelon, I would say try this. I would drink it again because it is vastly different from most beers. It isn’t unpleasant, just kind of hard to adjust to. It is certainly unique.
Overall – 3.0

Butternuts Beer and Ale Snapperhead IPA Secondary Review by D.P.

Butternuts Beer and Ale
Snapperhead IPA
ABV – ?
Appearance – Pours nicely,  a bit cloudy, honey colored, nifty brussels lace.
Smell – Strong floral notes and tropical fruits.
Taste – Sweetness at first,  pleasant middle.  The taste of grains peek through at the finish,  followed by an interesting,  barley infused,  mildly bitter yet lingering aftertaste.
Mouthfeel – No complaints.
Drinkability – Try it,  if you like IPA’s,  you won’t be disappointed.
Notes – This beer is like the Led Zeppelin song, “Achille’s Last Stand”.  It starts out with the rolling drums and thumping bass which are soon joined by Robert Plant’s rocking vocals.  The finish is an overlay of instruments,  lyrics and background ah, ah, ahAH’s,  and crescendo-ing oh oh oh oh oh oh oh’s.  The lingering aftertaste is the guitar moaning out the last mournful notes which slowly fade into oblivion.  You are left wanting more.
My call – 4.5

Tagus Original Secondary Review by D.P.

Tagus
Original
ABV – 4.5%
Appearance – Golden,  sharp.  Impressive effervescence.  Rich head.  A nice looking beer.
Smell – Malt and green vegetables.
Taste – Sweet, honey-like taste,  start, middle, and finish.  Very mild sense of bitterness in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel – Not bad.  Maybe a bit syrupy.
Drinkability – Sure,  why not?
Notes – The honey flavor prevails but is not overpowering.  The 8.45 oz. bottle is cute.  Just a touch too sweet for my liking,  kind of like the annoyingly nice and condescending woman who answers the phone when you call to complain about a utility bill.
My call – 3.0

Hoegaarden Secondary Review by D.P.

Hoegaarden Witbier
ABV – 4.9%
Appearance – Very light straw color,  attractive, zillions of tiny bubbles clinging to the inside of the glass.
Smell – Smells yummy,  yeasty, like expensive candy.
Taste – Delicious,  nice tanginess with hints of spice and citrus undertones.
Mouthfeel – Exquisite.
Drinkability – I highly recommend it.
Notes – I shall fashion a breastplate from ladybug wings and forge a broadsword from 20,000 discarded bottle caps.  I will live in a castle built exclusively of shark teeth and my domain shall be populated by elven folk, beautiful naiads, and mythical creatures.  My faithful steed shall be a triceratops cloned from ancient DNA. Visiting lords shall ache to be seen in my presence and they shall supply me with great casks of Hoegaarden which I shall drink from a chalice made from the petrified egg of a pterosaur and which shall quell the thirst of my countrymen.  I shall decree this the beer of choice and none shall question my judgement.
My call – 5.0

Full Sail LTD Series Recipe #05 Limited Edition Lager Secondary Review by D.P.

Full Sail LTD Series
Recipe #05 Limited Edition Lager
ABV – 5.6%
Appearance – Nice,  sparkling copper color.
Smell – A little like asparagus.
Tasted – Grain sweetness strikes first.  Intense carbonation burns the tip of the tongue.  This is followed by a blast of alcohol and a pleasant, candy-like (caramel, I suppose) aftertaste.
Mouthfeel – A little bit harsh,  almost too much carbonation.
Drinkability – Worth a try.
Notes – Not your typical lager,  that’s for sure.  I’m not quite sure why you would go to such lengths to make a lager with so many ale characteristics.  It’s like trying to make a fork lift out of a plow truck.
My call – 3.0
