My Opinion Of The Beers That I've Tried:
13.5 points overall
Captain's Pale Ale (bottled)
Style 6 - American-style Pale Ale
- 16 points - Beer #19-1507, Willow Glen Liquors, San Jose CA, June 13, 1996
Amber, fairly low carbonation, good head. Caramel-malty aroma. Good body, very malty. Sweet brown flavors, with a nice bitter background. Reminds me a little of a flat Snake River Lager (18-1419). Thanks to Paris Cunningham for bringing this beer to Hawai`i for me!
Doc's Ale (bottled)
Style 4 - Mild / Brown Ale
- 13.5 points - Beer #19-1508, Willow Glen Liquors, San Jose CA, June 13, 1996
Red-brown, low carbonation, good head. Malty aroma, but not as big as the Captain's Pale (19-1507). Sweet, brown, flat. Very sweet finish...almost sticky. Newcastle (17-1332) has a much better balance. Thanks to Paris Cunningham for bringing this beer to Hawai`i for me!
Rosed Porter (bottled)
Style 9 - Porter
- 11 points - Beer #27-2248, Willow Glen Liquors, San Jose CA, September 13, 1997
Very dark red, nice head. Fusel odors, some black malt. Good body, roasty, some paint thinner character. Roasty-sweet black finish. Tastes a lot better than it smells. "Best consumed within eight weeks of bottling" - there's no date on the bottle.
