That, I did not enjoy at all
Yeah that one was okay...sort of weak and anticlimactic after the Maharaja. So, I'm finishing up with this...
Tried a lot last night
Founder's Red's Rye-Awesome
Short's Nicie Spice-Way too sweet
Rogue Mocha Porter-Good
Stone Pale Ale-Good
Southern Tier 2x IPA- The women at the beer store rec'd this....was fucking awful--I poured it out
I was actually really excited to try some Short's stuff and was left very unimpressed. Anyone else feel the same way?
i need to look for Short's Key Lime today. I thought Strawberry Shorts Cake was ok.
I much prefer the winter selection. PB&J, Cup a Joe, and Woodmaster are pretty good.
They had an Anniversary Ale in the spring brewed with blood oranges that was nice.
They definitely have some odd creations and I can appreciate that, but i agree, not all come out that great.
i much prefer Founder's over Shorts though. Red Rye is fantastic.
I can appreciate that also. I just was expecting more from them. I don't know why though. The nicie spice was just cloyingly sweet. Founder's brews a much more balanced beer IMO.
give the winter ones a shot. cup a joe is delicious. it's not around anymore but the freedom of 78 IPA from shorts is really good.
What do you think of Lupa and Pandemonium?
Lupa isn't bad. I don't like it as much as Founder's Centennial IPA though. A lot of bars around me are hopping on the craft brew thing an Short's seems to be a popular pick, so in the summer i've been drinking Lupa. I've had better, but i've had a lot worse.
I don't think I've ever had Pandemonium. if i did, it didn't stick out.
Was that Red Rye the one you were telling me about?
I really don't like any of the Southern Tier brews besides the stouts. The stouts are fucking fantastic.
^negative. something different. Red Rye is good but quite common. Do you not have access to any Founders? btw, I threw in a regular Breakfast Stout so you can compare to KBS.
Nope, no founders. Sadly.
Thanks for the throw in.
Red's was what I was telling you about. When is Breakfast Stout being released? I'm looking at brewing my own version.
Red's has more of a rye taste than terrapin rye.; Both are awesome though. I just looked at the BA rating on Beer Advocate and it has an A-. I just don't get it....the beer made me want to vomit.
Founders announced their release date for their CBS. October 3, 2011, with a taproom release party on October 1. Anyone willing to get me a bottle or two? It sounds fucking delicious.
