Quick Sips including Yards Philadelphia Pale Ale

Odds and Ends of some beer I’ve sampled…including Yards Philadelphia Pale Ale

Along the way, I’ve had the chance to try some beer — but haven’t had the time to dedicate complete posts to each. Ergo a quick synopsis — or sipnopsis.

Amstel Wheat: Some things are just a bad idea…and this is one of them. The spokeswoman kept saying it tastes like a heffeweizen. Apparently, not a good one — but to be fair, I don’t like heffeweizen anyway. For me, 61 points.

Yards Jefferson Tavern Ale: First few sips are interesting, honey sweet, nutty and spicy rye. Problem is that after a few sips it wears out its welcome. The sweetness gets shallow and artificial tasting. I’ll put it at 81 points.

Yards Washington Tavern Porter: I tried to pass this up. I like stout and an ideal porter aims to taste like a watered down stout. Has what you’d look for in a porter – roasted grains. It’s just me not this beer. I’d say 83 points.

Yards Philadelphia Pale Ale: Some honey sweetness followed by some grassy hops. Demure — but not bad. 84 points.

Cricket Hill Colonel Blides Cask: light enough that I can see drinking this on a hot summer day. Not sure if lawn mower beer was their intent. Under the light body is a decent balance of malt, hops. 84 points.

16 Mile Harvest: With a name like Harvest, I was expecting fresh hop flavors, instead I got what was called an English-style ale. It was roasted, a bit watery and had an awkward hop finish. 82 points.
