Logs for beers from this brewery

Again, murky. But my palate may have been corrupted.
Murky, and yeasty, somewhat tacky in the throat. There's definitely a sweet coffee character, but it's more lost in the murk rather than elevating it.
Hoppy, smoky, but more ashy than woody. Somewhat sour on the finish, which ended up being a theme here today.
At once sweet wheat and citrus, there's a little more tartness and bitterness to this beer than makes me love it, feels a bit like a gimmick.
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.
Prickly and clean; a pilsner with just a bit of hoppy pungency on top. Net effect is a bit floral.
Bottle at Work
Slightly funky, slightly tart peach to open, mellows into a light lager very quickly. An unusual combination of flavors, but pretty good. And anytime you get peach that doesn't taste like canning syrup, you have to count that as a win.
I thought the smell was a bit odd. Flavor is more chocolate than cinnamon, medium-thick, fairly smooth and milky. A bit more dry sourness than I was expecting, and a nice roasted / subtly smoky finish. Aftertaste is tacky, unfortunately -- from the lactose?
Bottle at Odin Lounge
Can't log, Distracted by Matt talking about skulls and absinthe. Also, NPR's Cliff Mass and aggressive toast-buttering assault. Very timid American pale ale, acceptable but not memorable.
A delicious milk stout, not too sweet, not cloying at all. Creamy and easy-drinking. Maybe one of the best straight milk stouts I've had.
Bottle at Odin Lounge
An excellent, smooth bourbon stout. Light chocolate notes and mild bourbon - I'm sure this was strongly alcoholic, but it didn't taste it. Finish is slightly on the over-bitter side,
Bottle at Odin Lounge
Strong, caramel/toffee barley wine with good bourbon-wood flavors. It feels every bit of its alcohol content, and could definitely use some aging. Not too far away from a young Sucaba, which is not a bad thing.
Bottle at Odin Lounge
Typical Mexican lager with a good, solid flavor. Slightly sweet, slightly Uric.
Cola-like, with a light, toasty flavor and a sweet caramel malt flavor. Reminiscent of some light brown ales I've had, a very uncomplicated flavor. I like a little more grassiness and just a touch more toasted flavor in my marzens. This was fine, though.
Roasty and caramel, but with a lot of hop spiciness. Not the kind of CDA I'm really into.
A medium-thick, roasty stout. Very solid, standard offering here.
Citrus-bubblegum IPA-like flavors. Bit of pine. Sweet, but bitter finish. Perfectly fine.
The general thing at this brewery seems to be light flavors and soda-like carbonation, and this was no exception. Still, a lot of things to like about this beer, with some caramel and light fruit. Best of the flight.
Much more balanced than the Umbrella, with a light caramel malt body and a slight fruitiness. Hops are more fruit and less pine cleaner. Very low bitterness, clean finish. The description mentions English character but this tasted more like a low-alpha northwest IPA.
Ella hops, says the sheet. The hop effect is light but perfumey, a bit lemon-pledge, but not as strong as beers brewed with lemon drop hops. Surprisingly bitter on the end, with a lot of filmy resin.
More flavorful than I remembered. Still light, but with a fruity, malt flavor and a bit of funk on the nose. Lots of soda-like effervescence.
The surprise of the day, a very well-balanced toffee-tinged stout in the Parabola vein, although (expectedly) less complex. Very nice and doesn't stick out in any unpleasant directions.
Fruity at the outset, leading to sweeter chocolate, very smooth and lingering tasty finish.
Bottle at Home
Not a ton of flavor but still an interesting take on a maibock.
Sudsy hop smell. Good mellow cereal flavor with a tight finishing bitterness. A bit of tack.
I liked that this bock sat in the drier, bitter tradition of a pilsner rather than being sweet or overtly bready. Wow does the alcohol sneak up on you, though.
Thin, coal-dark beer with a slightly cola-like mouthfeel, but over time you get to appreciate its dry, molasses-bread smoothness. Slight roasty flavor.
Smooth, dark malt lager with a pils-like bitter finish. What was really interesting was that behind the prickly carbonation was a flavor I couldn't pin down - fruit? milk? banana bread? I don't know, but whatever it was was appealingly different.
Bad Santa? More like bad beer. Ho ho horrible!
Bottle at Home
Nice pepper up front with a nice amount of floral hops, without being too fruity or bitter. Pleasant and goes really well with food.
Thin body though definite malt presence so taste isn't affected. Mild peppery bitter finish
