Review of Samuel Smith’s Organic Apricot Ale
Review of Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale
The taste wasn’t all that strong either. I definitely discovered some of the syrup with a very relaxed smokiness. Touches of bacon fat and a little bit more of the sugary caramel. I thought it was balanced pretty well. I don’t necessarily think the flavor was world-class, however it wasn’t all that bad to tell the truth. Just different I guess.
The mouthfeel was medium to medium/thin. I thought it would be much fuller. Oh well. It was quite dry and somewhat chewy. The carbonation was decent, however not a terrible amount of flavor was left behind on the palate.
Well, I didn’t think this beer was THAT bad. I don’t think it is something that I would want to drink everyday, but I’m glad I got to try it. It’s quite unique and I applaud Rogue for creating it. I’d drink it again if it were offered. I think it could pair well with the cooler weather. The drinkability wasn’t real good, but I made it through the bottle with no trouble. So, if you guys are looking to try something a tad different, give the Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale a try a see what you think. Some will be turned off, although I do think it has its place in the beer world. Be sure to let me know how you interpreted it if you’d like.
Thanks for reading and commenting everyone. I really appreciate it.
Until next time. Cheers.
Score: 3.6 out of 5
Review of Jester King Wytchmaker
Let’s just go ahead and get to the website, jesterkingbrewery.com, and see what kind of information we can drum up about the Wytchmaker.
Earthy rye and piny hop flavor and aroma meet spicy, funky characteristics from our farmhouse yeast in this American-inspired farmhouse ale.
Sounds good enough to me. Let’s pour.
