Wet Willy Scotch Ale: 5.5 – Drink it, it’s good – that’s what the bottle says, and I suppose that’s the best way to describe it. It is good, but that’s about it.

White Birch Tavern Ale: 6.5 – It’s nice and dark, and it somehow reminds you of a brew that would be unlabeled or served only at that pub. It’s not a great beer, but for a dark beer that’s not heavy at all – it’s great to drink.

In our continued efforts to keep branching out and not just review whisky – let’s review a whisky. This time however it’s a Canadian whisky which is at least outside our common wheelhouse. In fact we’ve only done a few Canadian whiskies most notably Canadian Mist which sadly proved rather mediocre.

Ballantine Ale: 4.0 – There’s a briskness to the hops as an initial taste, but then it basically becomes watery and not that great.

Narragansett Oktoberfest: 3.0 – Yes I know we are a bit farther from October, but there were so many other good fall beers we wanted to have on the site that this got moved to backlog. This is likely because this is such a weak october fest beer. We’re really not a fan and while we love regular Gansett during the summer – it’s should stay there.

A cognac? On Honest Booze Reviews? Yes despite the debacle that was us trying to break into things we don’t typically review with our brandy reviews of the VSOP and XO – it’s high time we start including brandies and congnacs into our spirits rosters. And despite E&J garnering the most views on a single review – lets do something a bit higher on the shelf.

Bruery 6 Geese A-Laying: 6.0 – It’s interesting, sort of more like a red ale but without any cut. As for a winter ale here you appreciate the 11.5% more than the beer itself.

High and Mighty Fumata Bianca: 6.75 – This beer can be best described as some wheat and rye and smoke just being ‘on it’ as far as the beer goes.
