Dog Fish Head Punkin Ale

Style: 20 (Fruit Beer?)
Aroma: sweet armoma, allspice, no hops 4/12
Appearence: dark golden, very clear, good head retention 2/3
Flavor: quite sweet from brown sugar, malty but not overly, no hops, late pumpkin taste, lingering pumpkin pie 12/20
Mouthfeel: smlooth, low carbonation, medium body 3/5
Overall impression: decent beer, smooth and easy drinking, low hops is nice for this style, a bit too sweet could be improved it made dryer to balance for the low hop content, light spice is plenant, no major defining characteristics. Above everage fruit beer. 7/10
Total Score: 29 (Good)

10 Barrel Brewing : S1NIST0R Black Ale

Black for sure. Light stout upfront with only a little burnt finish. Good gateway to dark beer.

Some nondescript german hefe

Not banana or clove... crisp and clean but very wheat. Quite enjoyable. The green stuff is Dill Pickle Soup from Otto & Anita's in Multnomah Village, outside of Portland, OR.
