Grunt Style Beer Review- III

Grunt Style Beer Review- III

Last weeks Beer:30 sponsor. 
ShocktopWe’ve shaken up traditional tastes by brewing a spiced Belgian-style wheat ale with real orange, lemon and lime peels and then added a little coriander spice to the mix. This uniquely-crafted and award-winning wheat beer is unfiltered to create a brew that is naturally cloudy with a light golden color and a smooth, refreshing finish. Shock Top Belgian-style wheat ale has collected awards in consecutive years at the North American Beer Awards.

Grunt Style Opinion: Not a smooth refreshing finish. This is a beer I would not drink on a regular basis. I do like the subtle sweetness from the orange, lemon, and lime though.

A pale-gold hued ale, fermented with a Belgian yeast strain,cynicresulting in a beer that has notes of lemon citrus from the hops, and black pepper spice from the yeast, with a dry “tingly” finish.

Oh great, a fizzy yellow beer in a can, that’s just what the craft beer world needs! CynicAle melds Old World ingredients in a new school style. French malted barley, English oats and Belgium yeast create honey & black pepper flavors. Lively Slovenian hops provide the floral, apricot and peach notes. Toss your doubts away, toss one back and enjoy!

Grunt Style Opinion: Another good showing from Surly. The black pepper stands out, but I would probably only drink one or two at a time. Final note, it has a taste akin to bazooka bubblegum.

prohibitionProhibition ale is the first beer we bootlegged back in the early days of the brewery. Anything but traditional, prohibition pours a deep reddish amber hue, with a fluffy tan head that leaves a beautiful lacing on the glass. A lush, complex aroma teases the senses with juicy grapefruit, citrus, pine, spice and candied caramel malts. Mouthfeel is creamy, with a silky, medium body and modest carbonation.

Grunt Style Opinion: Very nice citrus and not overpowering. This would be a great beer with brats.

This intensely dark Kulmbacher style lager has a superb malt complexityblack bavarian

with the distinctive flavors and aromas of coffee, caramel and chocolate.

A renowned smoothness and a creamy, tan head make it a world champion.

Randy’s Notes: “I have been brewing this lager since my return from Bavaria in 1969 or over 35 years now. ”

Grunt Style Opinion: The flavor of the coffee, caramel, and chocolate are a bit flat with a slight dirt finish. It does have a hard  hitting slight citrus taste, and is overall not bad. Bonus: They make a badass root beer.

domaine dupageInspired by the brother’s time living in France, this food-friendly ale is deep amber in color, with a toasty and sweet caramel start. It finishes with just enough hops to clean off the palate. Bon Appétit!

Grunt Style Opinion: A little bit bitter at the start, but the caramel sweetness takes over very quick. It is slightly heavy in a satisfying way.
