Yes, Victory At Sea's a favorite of mine, and it does indeed hide its 10% well. Your company must be doing well if that's the kind of libations it's offering.

Time for summer beers!
At least out here in the west. Once it warms up to the 50's, I am ready to say goodbye to porters and stouts, and hit the hefe's, wit's and wheats
Maui brewings Mana Wheat is an American style wheat with pinapple. it has the usual banana notes, with a nice pineapple finish. Light, crisp and refreshing, 5.5% abv, 18 ibu's. Dangerously quaffable. Hard to find on the east coast, available in Maryland and Virginia, available all over the west, except for Utah.

Agreed. After having big barleywines and stouts, it's nice to scale back a bit. I've been really enjoying Sierra Nevada's Harvest: Single Hop Equinox. Of the beers from SN I've recently had (Nooner, Hop Hunter, Hoppy Lager), this is my favorite.
Too bad that Maui offering isn't available in PA - it sounds like something I'd enjoy.

I have tried hops, slightly hoppy all the way up to 150 ibu's, I cannot abide, they wreck my palate to the point that I do not understand the fascination. Every time I try, I feel like I have been bitch slapped by hops . I have had a few dry hopped brews that I could actually taste. I just had a few dry hopped Prairie Standards that is was able to sip, and not go into " I paid for it I am not going to waste it " guzzle mode. As far as the Maui, you could always hop onto I-95 and road trip into Maryland...

Good idea. Thanks for the heads up Mario. I understand what you're saying about hoppy beers, but thankfully there are a lot of styles to choose from. On the other side of the coin some of the Belgian stye beers are too sweet for my taste. Drinkable yes but close the edge of not being enjoyable.

Maine Brewing's Mean Old Tom stout is awesome, and not just because of the name. That is all.

I have since had their MO Pale Ale and King Titus Porter - both excellent. On tap just now is Smuttynose's 2014 Farmhouse Ale - a welcome quaff in warmer weather.

Old thread but I can't make a new thread until I make more posts SO, sorry! I'm not a beer drinker at all, but my husband just picked up some Not Your Dad's Root Beer. It tastes a LOT like root beer, but it's... real beer haha. I wouldn't drink a whole bottle but I had a few sips and it has a pretty nice root beer flavor.

Yup, the regular edition is 5.9%, but there are higher octane versions - one around 10% and another around 18%.
