Tucher Privatbrauerei Helles Hefeweizen Naturtüb

This beer is Helles Hefeweizen Naturtrüb from Tucher Privatbrauerei. This brewery is in Nüremberg, Germany. Tucher is the oldest wheat beer brewery in Nüremberg, which is Bavaria. This beer comes in a 1-pint .6-ounce can at 5.2% ABV. This wheat beer pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a five-finger thick white head. The head fades slowly into thick lacing. The aroma is banana, clove, sweetness, and light wheat. The flavor is much similar to the smell. There is banana, clove, sweetness, and creaminess. The mouthfeel is medium. Then this Hefeweizen finishes with a banana sweetness that fades into almost a banana bread-like taste. The aftertaste is light banana bread. This is a good beer, and I’d never really heard of Tucher Privatbrauerei before having this. I give Helles Hefeweizen Naturtrüb an A. The whole flavor is lighter than most traditional German Hefeweizens. That’s not bad, but a little unexpected. I would recommend this beer. Yes, I’d have it again in a heartbeat. Please be kind, stay safe, and remember to enjoy responsibly! Cheers! 

Oskar Blues Brewery Mama’s Little Yella Pils

This beer from Oskar Blues Brewery is Mama’s Little Yella Pils. This is a 4.7% ABV Bohemian Pilsner. I reviewed this a long time ago. It has been so long that I can not remember when I did check it. This beer is a core beer offering from Oskar Blues. So you can find this all year round. I found this a my local Harris Teeter grocery store. This pilsner pours a yellow color with a four-finger white steady fading head that leaves behind patches of lacing. The aroma is biscuit grains, sweetness, with hoppy notes. The flavor is similar to the smell of this beer. There are bread grains, sweet notes, hoppy notes, and a crisp & clean flavor. The mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Then comes an aftertaste that is crisp sweet and hoppy. The aftertaste is sweet and hoppy but not as sweet. This is a solid pilsner from a good brewery. Mama’s Little Yella Pilsner is an A+ I have had a couple of pilsners where the flavor is sharper and better, but there are only two pilsners out there that are better. This is a great beer that you need to have in your refrigerator. Please be kind, and safe, and remember to enjoy responsibly! Cheers!

Fonta Flora Brewery Local Snacks

This beer is Local Snacks from Fonta Flora Brewery, is a mix-fermented ale or Appalachian Wild Ale. It is 6.2% ABV. This ale uses burlap-age hops, mixed house cultures, Riverbend Barley, and Riverbend raw wheat. This beer also uses blueberries, cherries, Muscadine, and Scuppernong grapes. This beer is only available in the summer season. This ale pours a raspberry red color with no head. The aroma is fruity, with cherry, raspberry, and slight grape. The taste is similar to the nose with raspberry, and cherry tartness, but with fewer grape flavors than you pick up on the nose. The mouth is somewhat medium. Then this ale finishes tart and sour with fruity esters. Then you get a tart cherry-raspberry aftertaste that lingers for a second or two and then fades away. This ale is an okay beer, and I give Local Snacks a C+. It has good flavors, but nothing stands out. You have to be in the mood for a sour-mix beer like this. They are neat beers, and you should try them. But would I recommend this one? Not so much, I mean, it’s not bad, but it’s not the best either. Please be kind, stay safe, and remember to enjoy responsibly! Cheers! 

This lager beer is Oskar’s Lager from Oskar Blues Brewery. It is 4.2% ABV. This lager beer has 95 calories and 2.5 grams of carbohydrates. That may seem like a “lite” beer, and that is correct. But as you can probably see, it does not say lite or light on the can. So why is that? That is because “light or lite” beer is usually associated with big macro beer breweries,\ and that would turn off a craft beer drinker, and they probably won’t buy it. This lager pours a light gold color with a one-finger white head that fizzy away rather quickly. The aroma is sweet and bitter, and there is some fruit. The taste is crisp with light sweet notes, there are better notes and fruitiness, and it goes down clean. This lager is a crushable beer, and it is easy to drink. The mouthfeel is very light. Then this beer finishes clean with bitterness and a dry-ish note. The aftertaste is bittersweet and doesn’t linger for a second. This lager doesn’t taste like a low-cal/carb beer at all. I give Oskar’s Lager a B+. The flavor is good but not sharp or flavorful enough to make this a percent larger. I still really enjoy it, and I highly recommend this, even if you are looking for a low-calorie beer. It’s good! Please be kind, stay safe and remember to enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
