Beer Review – St Arnold 5 O’Clock Pils

In response to my previous review of Shiner Light Blonde, I was advised to try St Arnold 5 O'Clock Pils. What I enjoyed about Shiner's offering is the improved depth and flavor profile compared to the traditional American lagers such as Bud Light, Miller Lite and Coors Light.

Battle of the Beers – Summer Brews

As we come to the end of July, it may seem as though Summer is almost through. But here in South Texas, we are just starting to hit our stride of 100 + degree days. Summer sun means pools, beaches, rivers, barbecues and trying anything possible to beat the heat.  Given the time of year, I took it upon myself to collect (and drink) a number of breweries' seasonal offerings, in the name of science. In this Battle of the Beers, I will be ranking these brews from worst to first.

Beer Review – Cactus Cat Kolsh

Going into this review, I had never heard of Cactus Cat Kolsch or its brewers, Nine Band Brewing. Upon further research, I discovered Allen based (near Dallas, TX), Nine Band brews 9 beers of differing styles. 

Beer Review – Freetail Tropical Punch Bexarliner

San Antonio's Freetail Brewing Co. is something of a hometown hero for beer drinkers in the South Texas region. All reputable stores and locations in the region carry the famed and respected Freetail brews. So, when on a recent trip to San Antonio's Flying Saucer, I was intrigued to see Freetail's Tropical Punch Bexarliner (pronounced "Bear-liner", more on that here) on their menu and knew I had to try it.

Beer Review – Lost Gold IPA

If you've kept up with my previous reviews, you will be familiar with my less-than-friendly relationships with IPAs. In my June review rankings, an IPA finished dead last, and another finished second overall. In many cases, I find that IPAs are overly bitter, meaning that by the third or fourth mouthful they are no longer enjoyable to drink.

Battle of the Beers – June Reviews

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!

Beer Review – The Don Jalapeño Ale

When I started out, I wasn't really sure how I felt about this beer. Whereas with some brews I know within a mouthful or two whether or not to recommend it, The Don's complexity made things difficult. I ran the full gamut of responses on this one, at times feeling highly impressed and at others questioning my grip on reality.

Beer Review – Shiner Light Blonde

While many avid beer drinkers will likely be disappointed and underwhelmed, Shiner Light Blonde is a pleasant step up on many of its direct competitors. With its light flavors, thin texture and high carbonation, it is very refreshing while not overly interesting.
