Another month is in the books and 2017 is flying by. I reviewed a total of 15 brews in the month of June! These rankings highlight my thoughts of each beer from worst to first and are purely my opinion. You may not agree, and that's completely fine!
On tasting the brew, I was happy to find similarity to Abita's Strawberry Lager and Shiner's Peach Wheat in that, only the pleasant attributes of the fruit were present. There is a strong kick of passionfruit's trademark tangy sourness without being overwhelmingly sour or sweet to the point of detracting from the beer.
Like many other Asian lagers (including Singha and Tsingtao, among others) this beer was clearly brewed with a warm, humid climate in mind. Having visited Japan in a rather muggy September, I can imagine Kirin Ichiban would be incredibly pleasant to break through the humid haze.
Shiner's Family Reunion is a combination six-pack including a variety of beers brewed by the Spoetzl Brewery. Having now tried all six beers from this six-pack, it's time to break down each brew in a worst to first.
EOS hefeweizen is one of the 6 beers brewed year round by award winning Nebraska Brewing Company. Founded by Paul and Kim Kavulak, the Nebraska Brewing Company began as a hobby. Between 1992 and 2005, Paul dabbled in home brew, constantly trying to improve his brews.
Founded in 2007, Southern Star is a rapidly growing brewing company based in Conroe, TX. Despite its short operational history, Southern Star has steadily grown its name and distribution. The brewery now distributes its wares in Texas, Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and South Carolina.
In 2016, Paulaner produced 1 million hectoliters (thats 26,417,205.2 gallons) of beer which is consumed in over80 countries. This translates to 211,337,641.6 pints of Paulaner consumed in one calendar year, which is fairly impressive in my eyes.
