Big Johnís Honey Wheat Ale
Not bad, not great. A decent wheat ale. Nice smooth mouthfeel and a grassy hop finish.

Big Johnís Rye Ale
Tasted at Kansas City Beerfest at Union Station October, 2015. I had so many that this rating might be a bit off. ;)

Big Johnís Oatmeal Stout
None of the creamy smoothness youíd expect from an oatmeal stout. In fact, thin and weak even for a stout without oatmeal.

Big Johnís Porter
Sweet caramel with no bitter or roasty notes to offset it. Result is cloying and one-dimensional.

Big Johnís Honey Wheat Ale
A straight-forward wheat ale with a touch of honey sweetness. Fine for washing down my pizza roll appetizer.

Big Johnís Rye Ale
Hazelnut brown pour with nice lacing. Sweet and a little spicy. One of their more interesting offerings.

Big Johnís Traditional IPA
Lovely amber pour with a big head that leaves nice lacing. Otherwise not all that interesting. Slightly fruity, next to no bitterness.

Big Johnís Vanilla Porter
Smells divine but too sweet and cloying even after just a 5 oz taster. Needs more substance to cut through the sweetness.

Big Johnís Jalapeno Wheat Ale
Outstanding pepper beer, which is surprising for central Kansas considering the abysmal Mexican food to be had. Fresh jalapeno and wheat aroma and the taste is a great level of spicy, very there but not overpowering. By far the best beer they were pouring that particular night.

Big Johnís Traditional IPA
This is a pretty decent English style IPA. Not for hop heads, but pleasant nonetheless. Light and bright. Tried with Jess in Salina in 2014.

Big Johnís Oatmeal Stout
One of the least impressive of the Big John beers. Less oatmeally and thick than I wouldíve liked. Sweet with a mildly roasty character. Tried with Jess in Salina in 2014.

Big Johnís Winterfest
Growler as a gift from my son. Thanks Seth! Pours a reddish brown with a decent beige head. Mild aroma of malt, caramel, and fruit. Taste is caramel malt, fruit, grain, and a bit of earth. Nice.
