Quick beer reviews

This is a good white ale but is it worth nearly $14 a six pack?  No.  It tastes like many other white ales on the market and the taste doesn't justify the high price.  But I'm glad I tried it.

Very good local to me beer.  It's one of those beers you want to let breathe for a few minutes after you open it or pour in a glass.  It's got a good start and a strong finish.  I highly recommend this one.

Yuck.  I hated this beer.  Absolutely hated it.  I'll never ever buy it again.  It tasted grapefruity and had a bitter finish, way too bitter.  The chilled urine of Ebola patients mixed with seltzer water would taste better than this shit.

That Leinenkugle uses Simcoe hops, which I've heard described as "cat piss" like. Don't think I ever want to try brewing with them.

I had another type of Leinenkugel a long time ago, it was quite bad. Not sure if it was the hops or the yeast, but I never wanted to try another of their beers as a result.

Their Summer Shandy is quite good, as is their Oktoberfest. This Helles though, it's shit.

I love the artwork on that RocketGirl one, reminds me of the comic Love and Rockets, when it was set in space
