My Opinion Of The Beers That I've Tried:
14.5 points overall
Black Gold Porter
Style 9 - Porter
- 16.5 points - Beer #17-1291, at the brewery, February 13, 1996
Brown, transparent, good head. Roasty, sweet aroma. Big, sweet, roasty. Very nice Porter. Just barely too much astringency.
- 14 points - Beer #13-964, at the brewery, May 8, 1995
Dark red, very clear. Roasty nose. Roasty sweet flavors. Nice smooth finish. Funny, my original handwritten notes from this trip are dated "5/8/63"...hmmm...
Style 16 - American Lager
- 16 points - Beer #17-1288, at the brewery, February 13, 1996
Golden, good carbonation and head. Standard "Beach" Blonde aroma. Malty flavor. Saaz? Good bitter/malt balance in finish.
- 13.5 points - Beer #13-961, at the brewery, May 8, 1995
Pale, fizzy, good head. Clean aroma, some soap in glass. Malty, finishes clean.
Bolsa Chica Reserve Bitter

- 15 points - Beer #17-1289, at the brewery, February 13, 1996
Golden-amber, good carbonation and head. Fruity aroma...grape-ish. Good body, lots of caramel and fruitiness. Lingers through finish.

- 15 points - Beer #17-1290, at the brewery, February 13, 1996
Amber-golden, good carbonation and head. Pretty clean aroma, a little smoke. Very smoky flavors. Good body, smoky finish. This could be a Rauchbier!
Droozenberry "Farewell" Ale

This is a raspberry beer. Yellow, some haze, good head. Berry aroma, some soap. Berry flavor, sweet. Finishes clean, but not impressive.

Yellow, very hazy, good head. Pretty clean aroma. Thick, sweet. Phenol-free.
