Rincon MacBrown: 4.0 – The nuttiness of the brown ale certainly shows here, but otherwise the beer lacks a real impact – from a microbrew this was the beer I was hoping they would just ‘get right’ but alas.

Rincon Blonde: 3.0 – It’s meant to be light and refreshing, but they went a little too far – this isn’t like drinking water – it’s more like drinking air.

Alright enough scotch, back to vodka (we should consider a gin binge). This time we go back once again to my least favorite friend, the bottom shelf. Because when you know you are buying ingredients for russians, the idea of a 10 dollar vodka seems enticing. You remember though that in most cases it may be 10 dollars, but it’s not 10 dollars well spent.

Island Kolsch: 5.0 – A nice kolsch style beer, for a blonde it’s actually quite good, but for a kolsch-style it’s not great.

Tank 7 Boulevard: 7.0 – A really nice saison with a lot of complexity to its flavor. I am a major fan of this saison.

As the 1L marker may indicate – this review is a little special. I was recently traveling through London (and apparently will return, so expect a new segment on London pubs to hit this site), and on the way home after some successful business I got myself some duty-free scotch. Of course with many options I couldn’t resist another entry from the Walker line.

Maverick Lager: 4.0 – Really light for a lager overall, and the taste is just really standard, Even worse you expect more from a beer company called Guns and Oil. Like this should have been so powerful a weak human couldn’t even handle it. and yet it’s about as strong as a feather.
