Delicious, caramel, sweet, lightly fruity. I liked this a lot better than what I remember of the Brew 3000, but the difference may be because it was on draft.
Delicious, as usual. I wish I'd taken more notes at the time, though.
Cereal/malty, just a hint of esters, brackish finish, not too boozy (which can be a danger with Maibocks). This was pretty much what I was looking for.
Held up well in the recapped bottle, even after four days.

Draft at At Luna Blu in Tiburon, CA
The Cherry was just on the edge of cough syrup but was nicely countered with some dark chocolate bitterness. It’s still fairly sweet so probably best delivered in a desert context and in small quantities.

Cola-like, lightly-sweet, nutmeg-forward. Sticks a little in the throat, but overall not a bad pumpkin ale at all. Also: super cheap.

Far too malty for my taste. Not what I typically go for in an IPA.

Picked this one up at the farmers market at the Ferry Building

Espresso chocolate smell. Sweet burbony body omg so good.

Toffee, malt, hints of raisin. Sticks in the throat a bit, but overall quite tasty.

More cereal funk than I expected. Lightly bitter, background pine. Slightly brackish on the tongue, but finishes clean.
Bought at the SF Ferry Building farmers market.

This was simply delicious work some home made pizza.

Chocolate milk sweet, fairly strong. Pretty one note, except the can art, which was distressing enough that it probably affected my enjoyment.

Way too sweet, notes of cherry and wood. Syrupy. I couldn't finish it.
A very weird beer, medium-sour with a biscuity-mellow finish that tastes a bit rooty or medicinal. I couldn't tell if that was the base sour or if it had to do with the nitro finish. Pretty good, though!
Nitro Draft at Malt & Vine, Redmond
This beer is almost savory, roasted, a little too thick in the Evil Twin fashion. I thought I tasted barrel but it's not in the description. Not bad, but didn't love it.
I think this beer might have been skunked, or it certainly skirted the edge. I think there was a pretty good, flavorful Kolsch here, once.
A light, piney IPA with a kind of acrid sweetness, like marshmallow layered on top of bitter grass. Kind of a retro east coast IPA flavor from the days before haze took over. Finishes clean, but the bitterness kind of lingers behind the scenes.
Has the aspect of a sour, sparkly merlot more than a beer - grape, tannins, caramel, prune, wood. Refreshing, it was not.
Tasty. Dry, bitter like dark chocolate. Maybe hints of caramel, but there's no sweetness here.
Harsh, sort of body odor flavored. I don't really like it
Apparently I had this seven years ago. The beer is the same, but the world has changed.

Sweet and kind of fruity. I'm not sure why this is considered an IPA, but I like it.

Much lighter in body than expected but with a Pilsner-like bitterness. Chocolate and coconut add a light sweetness but this is a nice change - it tastes like a beer rather than a dessert.
A well balanced blonde, lightly fruity with assertive Pilsner notes to counter. Uric and noticeably bitter. I liked it.
Slightly tart stout. Maple/burnt sugar, vanilla, slightly fruity with hints of blackberry. Much lighter than you’d expect from the description.
Tasty at first, citrus IPA on the slightly sweet, clear, juicy side. By the end of the tall it though I was just tasting booze and I just chose to stop drinking it. Which is never a great sign.
Fruity, estery Belgian pale, slightly tart, strongly reminiscent of apricot. Finishes with caramel and wine/grape notes. Definitely wears its high ABV on its sleeve, but quite pleasant.

I was trepidacious about this upon reading the label, but I’m pleased to report that the flavors are subtle. Almost too subtle. Like several sips in, the pepper finally starts accumulating enough to register. Otherwise, I have to admit I don’t really get the peanut here, even though it’s the third ingredient listed behind water and barley. Hmmm.

Mild coriander-flavored saison, with a fair amount of bitterness that sneaks up on you after a while. The server said this was modeled after Boulevard's Tank 7.
