My Opinion Of The Beers That I've Tried:
15.0 points overall
Style 19 - German-style Wheat Beer
- 19 points - Beer #15-1133, at the brewery, August 19, 1995
Dark yellow opaque, good white head. Strong clove ester. REAL smooth. Wheat flavor, esters, and hops are EXTREMELY well-balanced. A little dry in the finish, but a real pint-pounder. Brought a gallon of this home...box sprang a leak, but I charged it up in a Cornelius keg....which also leaked.
Miner's Golden Ale
Style 6 - American-style Pale Ale
14.5 points - Beer #15-1134, at the brewery, August 19, 1995
Golden, low carbonation, OK head. Nice malty nose, some clover? Malty in flavor, somewhat bitter in finish. I'd either boost the body, or more likely cut the bitterness to get a better balance.
Red Horse Ale
Style 4 - Mild / Brown Ale
14 points - Beer #15-1136, at the brewery, August 19, 1995
Deep amber, some haze, good head. Smells like Brach's orange candy slices! What kind of hops are these? Thick, caramel and brown malts. Hops are quick in the middle, finish is malty and sweet. (Named for the owner's Air Force unit: Rapid Engineering Deployable Heavy Operations Repair Squadron Engineering.)
Style 7 - English Bitter
12.5 points - Beer #15-1135, at the brewery, August 19, 1995
Amber, low carbonation and head. Fruity aroma, but subtle. Big beer, body, and bitterness. Lots of caramel, maybe some diacetyl, and a hint of over-the-top Tettnangs (bah). Weird astringent finish.
Style 11 - Stout
16 points - Beer #15-1137, at the brewery, August 19, 1995
Black, good brown head. Coffee aroma and a hint of alcohol. Coffee flavor...lots of it. Very nice black malt finish.
