Avocado Honey Ale: 5.5 – For what I was expecting out of a California Avocado/Honey hippie beer, this is actually a fairly good and unique tasting ale. Sadly I am not a huge avocado fan and my likes of this beer is that such flavor is subtle, but my dislike being that it’s still there.

Stella Artois: 4.0 – While it’s easy drinking it’s just not a great tasting beer. It’s over quickly though so at least it doesn’t linger.

This has been a long time coming, and it’s clear to see why. Despite the pair of reviews being one of the most viewed and talked about things on this site – we are not fans of E&J based on their lackluster XO, and their dismal VSOP. However those familiar with their brandy/cognac tiers know that there is a step younger (worse?) than VSOP – the VS. We said we would start getting more brandy and cognac – and that brings us to today.

Maredsous Abbey Ale: 5.5 – A very interesting tasting Belgium beer with a nice taste, but not one I’m that much of a fan of.

805 Blonde Ale: 6.0 – Very easy to drink, and has a great taste for a blonde. My only real complaint is that the taste just dies out really quickly.

It had been a long time since we had a proper rye in the lounge, but summer old fashioned’s are the best kind. Sadly though this is just an overall piss poor Rye. I sort of expected it with the reduced price tag (although on average I got a ‘bargain’) This is not what I was hoping which was a Rye counter to my Old Grand-dad.

Shiner Ruby Redbird: 5.0 – A really good wheat beer, but there’s a very large taste of ginger/grapefruit here that really kills this beer for me.

Shiner Chocolate Stout: 4.5 – A little too much chocolate for my taste, those with a sweet tooth would likely enjoy this.
