Shiner Ruby Redbird

 

 

Shiner’s Ruby Redbird is this week’s beer.  It is a Shiner’s summer seasonal flavor & will be featured at WiseGuys all month.  Shiner’s description of this beer sounds very interesting: it states that it is “a beer brewed with Texas ruby red grapefruit juice & ginger.”

Southern Tier Hop Sun

 

I wanted to do a summer beer and I haven’t tried Hop Sun yet.  I have been told that Hop Sun tastes like Three Floyds Gumball. (Since Gumball is rarely available and with summer approaching, I thought it would be a good one to review).

 

Appearance – Hop Sun is very light in color.  Light gold/yellow with a medium head.  It seems lively with a lot of carbonation

Two Brothers Long Haul Session Ale

Two Brothers Long Haul Session Ale

 

 

Two Brothers Long Haul is out of the Two Brothers “J Series,” which is aged in French Oak. 

With summer approaching, I thought choosing a session ale would be appropriate.  A session ale is basically a lower abv (alcohol by volume) than most other craft beers.  Normally, session ales sit around 3.9% - 5.0% with 5% being high. 

Two Brothers Long Haul is at 4.2%.

Sam Adams Alpine Spring Beer:

 

APPEARANCE - Sam Adams Alpine Spring Beer beer pours a light copper in color. It has a thick, white head that subsides at a slow pace but with some lacing. Alpine has a slight haze to it with little carbonation.

SMELL - Sam Adams Alpine Spring Beer smells fruity, (I'm going to say apricot), followed by yeast-like smell...like it’s going to be a little sweet.

Just in case you missed our Riesling 101 Tasting, here are the cliff notes.

What is Riesling wine?  Rieslings are white wines which are often light in body, crisp and refreshing with varying levels of sweetness. 

Rieslings have high acidity, low to medium alcohol levels with aromas/flavors that range from fruity to flowery to minerally. 

Craft Beer Journey

Thu, 08/30/2012 - 6:13pm -- Beer Guy

I got in to craft brews because drinking the same old beer just wasn't for me. I wanted to expand the debate of Miller vs Coors. Everyone knows of Miller’s Triple Hops and that Coors Light has a crisp and refreshing finish and is frost-brewed. And I’m sure this reminds some of you of your own long road into craft brews.
