Alaskan White

This is a really  nice refreshing drink on this busy day.

Cherry Stout

Christmas cheer is enhanced with this stout that's festive with a hint of cough medicine.

I was just in the mood for a Belgian ale and today I  pulled this from my Advent Beer Calendar. A sip of this starts with a welcoming malt base and finishes with a hint of banana and some spice. If I'd ever have to get used to Belgian beers, I would go back to Kwaremont often.

Subluminal Imperial Stout

Super flavors of dark chocolate and deeply dark roasted grains.  This is definitely a slow sipping beverage to sit with at the end of a long Sunday.

This is a classic find from my Advent Beer Calendar -- an all around good English style ale that's making me hungry for fish and chips.

12th of Never

First thing, the moment I pop this open, I get this terrific aroma of freshly picked hops. Lagunitas does hops!

This is a pleasant enough ale.  There's some interesting spicy hop flavor and some other unrecognizable flavors, that I can't tell if they are there on purpose.

Today I  pulled a wonderful beer from the Beer Advent Calendar. This European dark lager is easily drinkable with welcoming sweet tastes of raisins and roasted grains. On this blustery and snowy evening, Praga scratches right where it itches.

Sea Rose

Again, from my Advent Beer Calendar, this Tart Cherry Wheat Ale is better than last night's sour something-or-other. If I keep working at these fruity beers, I might become enough of an expert to explain the difference between sour and tart. . . . Or, hopefully, I can get back to drinking good beer soon.

Having someone else pick out beers for me at Advent time, provides me with some choices I wouldn't normally have paid money for, like this sour. I appreciate new experiences. This is a really sour experience. I can now say I know what it's like and I won't have to get it ever again.
