Clubtails Screwdriver

This is the is the last of the Clubtails. This particular one is Clubtails Screwdriver 10% ABV. This one pours a slight yellow/orange color with a nice color fade from light yellow to light orange. The aroma is like an orange This particular one is Clubtails Screwdriver 10% ABV. This one pours a slight yellow/orange color. It also has a good color fade from light yellow to light orange. The aroma is like an orange Mt. Dew soda with hints of alcohol. The taste is artificial orange juice. It is like an orange-flavored Mt. Dew almost. It has a light mouthfeel. This screwdriver finishes with a fake orange juice flavor. There is a tart orange juice aftertaste with a punch of 10% alcohol. I did not care for this after a few sips. Clubtails Screwdriver is a D-. it had too much of a fake flavor. That got old quickly. I drank almost half, and then I poured the rest out. Now, if it had been fewer, say like sixteen ounces, then it might be slightly easier to finish, maybe. This one was the last. In confusion, I found the Clubtails beverages to be just barely above average. I found the Sunny Margarita to be the best. Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly!

Clubtails Sunny Margarita

Clubtails Sunny Margarita, 10% ABV is not a beer. It’s a fermented like a beer but without hops, and is tweaked Clubtails Sunny Margarita, 10% ABV is not a beer. It’s fermented like a beer but without hops, and is tweaked to achieve the desired flavor. This Margarita from this big boy can pour a light lime green color, and yes, I salted the rim for a Margarita experience. The aroma is lime, citrusy, with light alcoholic notes. The taste is big with lime, and it has little alcohol towards the back. The mouthfeel is light. This Margarita finishes with lime a little bit of alcohol. The aftertaste is pretty much Margarita lime goodness that lingers until you take another sip. The overall alcoholic notes are light, and this Culbtail is quite refreshing. This Margarita tastes like a good margarita. I give Clubtails Margarita an A+. This Margarita is a great beverage and one that you should try. It is not as strong as most Margaritas. That makes it easier to drink, especially when it’s twenty-five ounces. It’s a good one! Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers! 

Clubtails Bahama Mama

This is a little different from the usual post. It’s not a beer but kind of close. Clubtails Bahama Mama, 10% ABV (all their products are 10% ABV) is a Canadian malt beverage. Clubtails are crafted from a fermented malt base like a beer but with little more of a punch. They try and spend their time perfecting the flavor and taste according to the actual sprit-based cocktail. The fine folks at the Geloso Beverage Group sent this to me with four others. This Bahama Mama pours (over ice) a pink grapefruit color. The can states that there is a tropical fusion of sensational strawberry, cherry, and citrus flavors. The aroma is sweet and fruity. I did smell strawberry and a tiny bit of cherry. I found an orange citrus scent there too. The flavor on this Bahama Mama is sweet, a little candy sweetness. I did get strawberry flavors with oranges, but not much cherry. The mouthfeel is light and refreshing. It finishes with a big sweet tropical flavor and bitterness. The aftertaste is best described as a tropical Jolly Rancher candy. Its aftertaste is tropical sweet and fruity. Overall this Clubtail Bahama Mama is pretty good. I give it a B. It has enough sweetness without being too sweet. It does taste like a tropical Bahama Mama cocktail. So they nailed that. This Clubtail is a good summer drink, and 10% ABV is not too bad. But it does go down easy. I recommend Clubtails Bahama Mama. Please stay tuned to Best Beer Blog for the other three Clubtail reviews. Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly!

Crafted Cocktail: White Lady


A White Lady is a Gin cocktail (1 1/2 oz Gin) with 3/4 oz Triple Sec Liqueur, 3/4 oz fresh lime juice, 1/3 oz Simple syrup and 1/2 oz pasteurized egg white which is optional. I used Aviation Gin and DeKuyper Triple Sec. Shake all ingredients with ice and strain back into shaker DRY shake (without ICE)  and the fine strain into a chilled Martini glass and garnish with a lemon twist. The White Lady Cocktail has been around since 1919 when it was created in London’s Ciro’s Club by Scotlands Harry MacElhone. The White Lady pours a cloudy white with a foamy clean white head giving you silky lemon aromas with a silky lemon and medium citrus orange notes that finish with a nice gin lemon and a much similar aftertaste with a bit of a gin alcoholic note all with a light to medium yet thick mouthfeel. The White Lady Cocktail seems fancier to me than most cocktails I’ve had but nothing overly or too fancy for me and the flavor is more on the refreshing side with a little more alcoholic strength to it, but just enjoy. I rather enjoy this cocktail, I’d say it’s a B. The somewhat thick mouthfeel hold it back just a little bit but not really hurting it an overall nice flavor and such. It one that I would say you should try! Please enjoy responsibly! Cheers!         

Crafted Cocktail: TOPO Eight Oak Carolina Whiskey Carolina Sour

Here I have another monthly review of Crafted Cocktail: TOPO Eight Oak Carolina Whiskey Carolina Sour. TOPO Eight Oak Carolina Whiskey is distilled in Chapel Hill North Carolina and is 46% ABV distilled from one-hundred percent wheat. This is bottle contains one chip of vanilla oak which is one of the eight kinds of wood used to finish this whiskey. A Carolina Sour is a local spin of the Whiskey Sour cocktail, 1 1/2 oz TOPO Eight Oak Whiskey, 3/4 oz lemon juice, 3/4 oz lime juice, 3/4 oz simple syrup, a dash of Angostura Bitters and optional orange slice. Combine ingredients into a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously until very cold. Pour into and rock glass over ice and if you prefer to garnish with an orange slice and a cherry. This Carolina Sour pours a light brown lemon-lime color with a fruity sour-sweet aroma with a citrus fruit flavor with a bit of a whiskey bitterness on the back of the tongue with a bitter citrus slight sour finish. You then get a lemon-lime aftertaste with a bit of a faint vanilla whiskey with a light mouthfeel. This is a nice take on a traditional Whiskey Sour with an interesting whiskey form North Carolina. I say that this TOPO Eight Oak Carolina Whiskey Carolina Sour is good I give this a B+. This whiskey flavor is muted in the other flavors and if it came through more this would get a higher grade but it’s was good and a bit refreshing. If you have these ingredients then this is one you should whip of and give it a try! Please enjoy responsibly!

Crafted Cocktail: Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer, Dark & Stormy

Here is something a little different from the usual. Thank you to the The Baddish Group for sending me some Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer and for sparking the idea for this post. One of my favorite types of liquor is rum especially dark rum so here I crafted a Dark & Stormy, 3 1/3 oz ginger beer (Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer), 2 oz dark rum (Pusser’s Rum), and 1/2 oz lime juice (Rose’s Sweetened Lime Juice). Fill a highball glass with ice, add dark rum atop ginger beer then add lime juice, mix thoroughly and garnish with a lime wedge. Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer has a 4.8% ABV whereas most ginger beers used to not. The Dark & Stormy is a is light sort of brown copper color with a big aroma of ginger and little notes of the lime and dark rum. It has a pronounced ginger flavor with a nice following of light lime dark rum right behind all the ginger beer with an alcoholic ginger finish and similar aftertaste with a light lime coming through with a halfway medium mouthfeel. This is not as boozy as it would seem but it’s a little boozier than a standard Dark & Stormy due to the Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer. Overall this was a nice taste Dark & Stormy cocktails, gets a B+. Yes sure there will always be something better out there but right now this Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer, Dark & Stormy is really good. Please enjoy responsibly. Cheers!
