Olde Mecklenburg Brewery Munzler’s Vienna Lager, 4.9% ABV brewed locally in Charlotte, North Carolina is brewed with dark malts and named for North Carolina first brewer Martin Munzler. This beer is relatively new for Olde Mecklenburg. It pours a caramel color with a one-and-a-half-finger white fizzy head. The aroma is a bready light sweetness and caramel. The taste is caramel sweetness with some bread notes with the faintest of dark malt notes. The mouthfeel is light for a Vienna Lager. Munzler’s finishes with a hint of a sweet bread that doesn’t stay. The aftertaste is caramel that only there for half a second then poof it’s gone. Olde Mecklenburg Brewery Munzler’s Vienna Lager is not bad and it close to some of the best Vienna Lagers, so I give a B+. I couldn’t find any faults with this beer other than it has just a pinch too much of dark malts, which are good, It is a good drinking beer that you should try for yourself. Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
I don’t typically see Maine Beer Company beers very often, but I did spot Post Ride Snack Session India Pale Ale, 4.9% ABV at Whole Foods. So I purchased it! This beer is brewed in Freeport, Maine. It is brewed with AMARILLO, CITRA, SIMCOE, HALLERTAU BLANC, NELSON SAUVIN hops, and 2-ROW, CARAHELL, MARIS OTTER, FLAKED OATS malts. This IPA pours a yellow color with a two and half-finger white head which fades at a steady pace. The aroma is tropical fruits like mango, pineapple, and guava with a bit of bitterness hitting the nose. Taste is tropical as well with mango, some guava, pineapple with some bitter hoppy notes. Toward what back of the tongue it’s a bit dry. That dryness carries into the finish with a bit of tropical bitter notes that do linger on into the aftertaste with a light mouthfeel. This is very crushable, meaning you can drink this with no problem at all. I give Maine Beer Company Post Ride Snack Session India Pale Ale an A+. It’s solid, taste, well brewed and it’s just the thing for a hot day. I highly recommend Maine Beer Company Post Ride Snack Session India Pale Ale. Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!

Stella Artois Brewery Stella Artois a Lager brewed in Leuven Belgium is a common lager beer that you find at the grocery store or from wherever you buy beer. This beer has been brewed since 1366. Stella pours a clean clear gold color with a.one finger bright white head that fades at a steady pace. The aroma is metallic and sweet with a breaded biscuit note. It’s not the best smelling beer, it smells like average generic beer. The taste is metallic and sweet with a bit of sharpness to it There are some crisp notes with a biscuity flavor. Stella Artois’ flavor is nondescript where you right down to it. The mouthfeel is light. It has a weird finish of the tank it was brewed it. The after taste is well nothing. I did not mind this, but I also didn’t like this. I’d say that Stella Artois Brewery Stella Artois is a D. It’s not as bad as some of the BMC beers (Budweiser, Miller, Coors, It’s not that much better. I would choose Steall Artois over those if those were my only choices. Plus there is so much better beer from Belgium to be had than Steall, like Duevl for example. So if you haven’t had Stella Artois already then don’t try this. Please be kind, stay safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
Scofflaw Brewing Co. Dirty Beaches Tropical Wheat, 6.3% ABV a beer brewed in Atlanta Georgia in collaboration with Victory Brands. I purchased this beer from River Street in Savannah Georgia while attending a wedding. This beer pours a hazed orange with a little sediment in it. The aroma is fruity a little bitter with a wheat aroma. Taste is first bitter, there is an orange, mango, melon fruity flavor with some light wheat. Mouthfeel is towards the fuller side that does coat your mouth for a quick moment. This Dirty Beaches beer finish with a light bitter tropical flavor that carries that tropical flavor on the aftertaste. Scofflaw Brewing Co. Dirty Beaches Tropical Wheat is more of a hoppy wheat ale with a few tropical flavors. It’s a high C+. It’s more hops than wheat here not a little of both which might have made it very good. It’s not bad, it’s just that I’ve probably had better versions of this. It wouldn’t be so bad if you missed this, but it would not be bad if someone offered it to you either. Please be kind, stay safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!

This IPA pours deep golden almost copper color with a two-finger steady fading white head. The aroma is citrusy with orange, there is cantaloupe and melon bitterness.

Overall this was not a bad beer, but I didn’t get much from the oats used here, I picked up more fruity notes. I would give Edmund’s Oast Brewing Company Bound By Time India Pale Ale a C+. This particular brewer does brew good beer but this was just not quite up there with some of their other beer, but close. I would not turn this beer down if it was offered to me and yeah I kind of recommend it, but if you don’t have it you aren’t missing too much. Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
