Three Taverns Craft Brewery A Night on Ponce IPA, 7.5% ABV is named after a street in Atlanta, Georgia but this IPA is brewed in Decatur, Georgia. This is another beer brought to me by my friend and co-worker Matt. This IPA pours a yellow color with a one-finger steady fading white head. The aroma is lemon citrus with a dry hoppy note. The flavor is citrusy with lemon and a bit of lemongrass with bitter hop dryness. The mouthfeel is light and smooth with a bit of crispness, This IPA finishes dry with a few fruity lemon hops and not much of an aftertaste I found Three Taverns Craft Brewery A Night on Ponce IPA a little soapy tasting and a bit too much lemon flavor. I’d give Three Taverns Craft Brewery A Night on Ponce IPA a D+. It tasted like an IPA, a lemony IPA, but not in a good way. The lemon flavor was a bit off and the hops were low in flavor. I didn’t find this to be that good, and one-sided. It needs to have more than just the lemon perhaps more hop flavors than lemon or tone down the lemon flavor. I don’t think it’s a good IPA. Please be kind, be safe and enjoy responsibly! down the lemon flavor. I don’t think it’s a good IPA. Please be kind, be safe and enjoy responsibly!

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.
