Old Chub Scotch Ale: 4.83 (4.5, 5.5, 4.5) – It’s an okay scotch ale, and likely the best scotch ale you can get from a can.

Harpoon Braggot Rights: 6.33 (5.5, 7.5, 6) – A little too much on the backend for me. But as for all IPA’s this isn’t that bad.

We recently had a vodka from Russia – but this time instead let’s choose one from a more unorthodox location. Ireland. Also this is distilled from grain for those wondering if this was a potato vodka (that’s bigotry). Anyway as you know we tend to mix up St Patrick’s Day and Cinco de Mayo – so hey close enough.

Company Quadruple 2015: 5.0 – There is a lot of flavor here, but overall the beer is just not a beer I terribly enjoy, or a beer I would recommend.

Jack’s Abby House Lager: 6.5 – There’s a nice amount of flavor, but very little power – it makes up for it by being a very drinkable beer – which is what you want from a House Beer.

It feels like it’s been a while since I’ve done a good old-fashioned Bourbon review, something to remind the folks at home that while I may travel the world of spirits – my heart beats to the ol’ red, white, and blue. I’ve tried many Four Roses (Recall having a flight of them during a business trip in Kentucky), but having not reviewed them – let’s put them on the board.

Karbach Weekend Warrior: 6.0 – It’s a nice good pale ale, but aside from some well done balance of hops – it lacks a more distinictive taste and/or flavor.

Samuel Adams Cold Snap: 6.0 – While this is not a great beer, this is good at the thing we mostly like about Sam Adams in that it’s the perfect beer to have the end of a long day.

Part of a 2 week – what does a $10 dollar bill get me review set – the answer as unfortunately common is not magic or art in a bottle, but bitter, bitter disappointment.
