Fathead's Bumble Berry Beer Review

Bumble Berry is a honey blueberry ale from Fathead’s Brewery that carries an alcohol content of 5.3% ABV and a low IBU of 13. Brewed with one hop and 3 malts, this beer incorporates honey to add just that little bit more of sweetness to compliment the infused blueberries. An award winning beer in the past and a local favorite around Ohio makes this beer one that is sought after by its fans. For me, it did deliver nicely as it wasn’t overly sweet nor was it overly thin.

Braxton Brewing Moving To The Country Beer Review

Moving To The Country is a collaboration from Braxton Brewing in Covington, Kentucky and Sweetwater Brewing from out of Atlanta, Georgia. This peach Pale Ale comes in with an alcohol content of 5% ABV and 40 IBU and is the first beer launched in the Neighbor Series from Braxton Brewing. Highlighted by the peach influence over the tropical and sweet tartness, this beer played out for me in an interesting yet refreshing way.

Beer Review: Hop Trial Schlafly Barbe Rouge (One Time Release)

From the Hop Trial Pack of Schlafly comes the Barbe Rouge, a single malted single hopped Golden Ale that highlights this French hop of origin. Described as floral and fruity in nature, there was not much missing of these qualities in this beer. The standout note was that of a strawberry and the beer itself proved to be one that could easily be downed without a second thought. My Untappd rating on this one comes in at a 4 and was definitely one that was well worth drinking.

Beer Review: Hop Trial Schlafly Perle (One Time Release)

Back with another one of the Hop Trial beers from Schlafly – The Saint Louis Brewery, this is Perle. A single malt single hopped Golden Ale featuring this German hop of origin which is now also grown here in America. Known to be somewhat of a spicy hop, this was picked up for me in the delivery of the beer. However a second quality that is also to be displayed is that of a minty one which wasn’t much to speak of at the time, and was kind of faint in the background. Color was good though and some nice lacing did take place as the beer worked down the glass. As for flavor, there was a nice quality to the beer which had a refreshing and floral character. Moving to my Untappd scale…Chalk this one up as a 3.75 for me, and if on Untappd then feel free to connect so I can see what you’re drinking too. Same as here, can friend request to Rodjbeerventures…Cheers!

Beer Review: Schlafly Hop Trial Ella (One Time Release)

Hop Trial: Ella from Schlafly Beer is part of their series dedicated to the tasting of individual hops which started a couple of years ago. It is a Golden Ale single malted and single hopped, the goal is to allow the drinkers to taste and enjoy the hop identified which in this case is the Australian Ella. For me, I found this beer to actually perform pretty decently, the appearance was solid and it held well on the flavor and aroma. The beer proved to be a nice palatable experience as the floral qualities of the hop came through nicely, more so than the also noted fruity notes that one should experience. Unfortunately, the beers are not for individual sale as they are part of a specialty series only introduced in 12 packs. But if you happen to see it and there will be new ones here for 2018, then it may be well worth picking up to experience which ever hop is highlighted. My score for this one an 82 and found it to be a tasty enough brew.

Beer Review: Platform Dr. Rudi The Project Series

Let’s talk a little Dr. Rudi from Platform Beer out of Cleveland, and what my thoughts are on this one. Dr. Rudi is part of the Project Series from Platform and comes in at 5.1% ABV and 40 IBU. It is an American Pale Ale and for me provided a nice decent overall experience. I found it to be quite palatable with a solid appearance and notes from the aroma. Flavor also provided a nice mouthfeel, although it was a little less fruity in the hops than I expected making it more like a standard pale ale in my opinion. This is my third one from them and probably thus far the one I have liked most, score an 82 for me on this one.

Beer Review Platform New Cleveland Palesner

Here is my look at the New Cleveland Palesner from Platform Beer Company, a beer they classify as a pilsner-pale ale hybrid that has an ABV of 5% and an IBU level of 23. The beer itself had some qualities of that of a refreshing beer, but it didn’t really do much to stand out for me. The appearance and aroma were okay but definitely played more to that of the pilsner side of things, and hops never really emerged to where I would describe it as much of a hybrid. Flavor was decent and it did sit well on my palate with a nice body, carbonation and decent texture. An okay finish also coupled this beer which led for me scoring it a 73 making it solid enough of a beer.

Beer Review: Jackie O's Razz Wheat

The Razz Wheat from Jackie O’s Pub & Brewery, which is just one more nice brewery that sits up the highway from me in Athens, Ohio. I can’t really call it local, so I’ll call it regional. Jackie O’s tends to put out some good beers in my opinion and this one is no different. This wheat ale fermented with all natural raspberry puree carries a nice ABV of 5.5% and for me it really did have a nice smoothness to it. The flavor came through nicely and it wasn’t overly fruity as it hit just right enough on the sweetness level of the beer. This one would stand out more in the warmer months with the flavor brought out, but a solid palatable beer nonetheless that can be enjoyed the full year round. Chalk this one up as an 85 for me on my scale.

Melvin Brewing Finds Out What Happens When Joke Goes Wrong

So just recently, Melvin Brewing has found themselves caught up in a snafu as to what they thought was a joke has now seemed to go wrong. Social media has been fast in responding to what they see as an issue, but I am not going to get into that as much here. There are plenty of pieces now addressing this on the internet so much can be found for sure. But, my question to address in responding is more about what still seems to be a mistake that keeps on happening, and that is that not knowing what can happen from “on” or “over” the line marketing.

Beer Review: MadTree PSA Makes A Nice Statement

The PSA from MadTree Brewing is a session pale ale that comes in with an alcohol content of 4.5% ABV along with an IBU level of 30. Developed using three hops and five malts, the beer does come together nicely with a good balance that I enjoyed throughout the drinking of the beer. The appearance was decent, but the aroma and flavor especially how it sat on my palate was even better. Sometimes session ales can have provided a less than expected experience for me, and this beer avoided that for me. It gave me what I wanted for a pale ale at a lower abv, making it a nice one that can be enjoyed while kicking back and without worrying about getting hammered. MadTree PSA gets a solid 81 from me, and would definitely recommend. Have you had this beer? If so then let me know what you thought of it by dropping a comment below in the comments area.

Beer Review: Rhinegeist Peach Dodo Brings The Peaches

The Peach Dodo from one of my local breweries, Rhinegeist, is a peach Gose that carries an alcohol content of 4.4% ABV and a low IBU of 12. I ended up picking the one on a beer run as an individual beer to see how it was which is always a good thing when possible to and have any questions about a certain beer or style. This one for the most part I found to be a solid enough beer. It had a good appearance and sat well enough on my palate. The aroma was okay although a little lacking despite providing a nice note of the peaches, and the flor provided was good on the initial and finish but duration did fade in a short period of time. One thing also about this beer too is that is quite chuggable, so it did go down pretty easy. Overall, no real complaints about this ale as it scored out as a 75 for me in the end. Have you had this beer? If so then let me know what you thought of it by dropping a comment below in the comments area.

Beer Review: Old Nation M-43 Ready To Go

Recently, I had a chance to check out the M-43 from Old Nation Brewing thanks to my buddy Eric and in follow-up to previously having their Boss Tweed. A nice appearance along with a great aroma and flavor, not to mention great mouthfeel and body made this beer nice palatable. Place that with good notes of tropical and citrus and its smooth milkshake like texture and this one became an easy one to enjoy. Finally as for my rating, this one gets a “good choice” score of an 87 from me and I would definitely drink it again.

BrewDog Feeling The Heat Over Pink IPA And Now It's BrewDoh

So BrewDog had the idea to create a Pink IPA and decided to label it beer for girls, but things seem to not be going as well as expected. Maybe it would have been good to maybe ask some women ahead of time about their thoughts...just maybe.

Beer Review: MadTree Lift

From MadTree Brewing here in Cincinnati, Ohio, this is my look at Lift which is a Kölsch style ale that comes in at 4.7% ABV and 11 IBU. Refreshing and crisp, this beer is what I needed after a long day of work. Subtle citrus flavor throughout this smooth offering, made me had to pace this one to avoid just chugging it down. A nice lighter profile accompanies this ale which uses 4 malts and 4 hops that come together for a nice balance. For anyone looking to jump from macro to craft, a Kölsch provides a pleasant way to do so. This one was pretty solid from its appearance all the way through and its one that for me scored a “good choice” 81.

Craft Beer Flying High On These Airlines

Courtesy of a piece done by Food & Wine, I decided to take a look at the highlighting of the craft beers now to be found on various airlines. Flying often requires a certain amount of comfortability and it seems the airlines are noticing this with beer as they are stepping up their game to provide craft beer options, very nice on their part I must say. So check out my video to see some of these offerings available and catch and my thoughts at being 30,000 miles above while we… Get Our Beer On!

Cheers and Happy Travels!

Beer Review: Old Nation Boss Tweed DIPA

From Michigan’s Old Nation Brewing Company comes Boss Tweed NE DIPA, a 9.3% ABV 68 IBU New England Style Double IPA and it is the feature of this latest review. Thanks to my buddy Eric for sending this to me and make sure to check out his YouTube channel where he also discusses beers among some other things. But this beer is one that I have been looking forward to trying and seeing how it lived up to the hype of what I was hearing and seeing, and it really didn’t disappoint.

From appearance to aroma to taste and all else involved, this beer provided a nice overall package leading to me scoring it a 91. Carrying somewhat of a smooth milkshake quality, the beer was creamy and smooth in texture. The juiciness of it easily came through, making it one that if not careful will easily be chugged away. Tropical and citrus notes easily poured out with the aroma, and the appearance was that nice haziness which makes the style. This is definitely one worth trying for any fan of this style, and thanks again to my buddy Eric for sending.

Beer Review: Lord Hobo Boom Sauce

Boom Sauce from Lord Hobo Brewing is a New England style IPA from the Massachusetts brewer and the subject of this latest review. Coming in with an ABV of 7.8% and an IBU of 78, this beer definitely has had a lot of hype around it and so I was looking forward to checking it out to see how it compares.

Highlighted by a nice golden straw color, the beer did hit on many things of the style. It wasn’t as juicy as some of the others that I have had from the style, but it was juicy enough and carried a nice refreshing quality to it. The six hops used did create a nice balance and the bitterness does come through making you feel the level of the IBUs. But all in all, the beer provided a nice overall experience as well as a nice palatable experience, leading me to a total score of 86 for this one.

Beer Review: Bruery Terreux Hottenroth

Hottenroth from Bruery Terreux, subsidiary of The Bruery, is a Berliner Weisse styled ale which of course means it is a sour beer. Low in ABV, this one comes in at 3.1% and as far as IBU that comes in at 2. So nothing bitter here, but you will get hit with the tartness. Lemony on the nose with a thinner texture, it does come across as light as one may expect with a somewhat refreshing quality. For me this one scored out to be a 74, which places it in my solid enough range for beers. I do however think that this would probably be better in the warmer months though when you just want to kick back in the sun and not have anything too heavy.

Check out my video to hear and see more of my thoughts on this one, and if you have had it as well then let me know what you thought of it by leaving a comment. Cheers and remember…there’s always time, so Get Your Beer On!
