Served on nitro. Very clear golden with a firm white head. Aroma is light grain and light hops. Mostly clean with a bit of a sweet and mildly cereal grain finish. Not a lot of flavor going on just a smooth refresher. Solid.

Silver City Foxy Lady
Bottle found at Red Apple in Bremerton. Pours a hazy mahogany with a small tan head that goes away very quickly and no lacing. Smell of berry, oak, and some wild yeast. Taste is tangy, sour, a little on the flat side, berry and fruit, and a little bit of wood. Ends dry in the mouth and sour, not worth the $14 for the bottle.

Silver City Foxy Lady
Bold red pour with a fizzy tan head. A bit of oak, berry fruit, tart, light earth. Has a mild sweet fruit note underneath. Finish is tangy and oak. It has some of the building blocks of a good Flanders but missing something that would pull it all together and make this a standout brew. As it is, itís middling.

Silver City The Giant Made of Shadows - Bourbon Barrel
Deep brown with a creamy tan head. Heavy bourbon and oak aroma, sweet dark malts, ripe fruit, booze. Medium and fairly smooth body. Flavor is dominated by the hefty bourbon and oak notes. The nuances of the standard Giant are mostly covered up by the barrel aging. Some sweet candied sugar and dark malts underneath with light dry cocoa. Itís good, but a bit too heavy on the barrel. The Giant is lost and just the barrel remains.

Silver City Nice Day IPA
Tap at the Wedgewood Alehouse.

Light orange pour, long-lived lacing. A classic PacNW IPA, grapefruit and a hint of pine, with less of the powerful resin that dominated the previous generation of efforts. Juicy, easy to drink and almost light at 5.5% but without lacking anything.

Quite a nice job putting this beer together, in my opinion.

Silver City The Giant Made of Shadows - Bourbon Barrel
Tasted from bottle. Pours s dark ruby with off white head. Aroma is predominated by alcohol. You get some bourbon but almost a vodka alcohol smell along with some herbs and dark fruits. Flavors of bourbon, figs, prunes, plums, caramel, licorice, alcohol heat. Not my favorite BA. I might like the non BA better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deeper orange with amok-white rocky head. The cherry is very evident. Well spiced, pie spice, rose, floral, and some tropical fruit in the back. Only faintly dry in the finish with spice and little sweetness. An interesting twist on saison that works better than expected.

Bottle (500ml $13): Light golden with small white head. Very nice Triple. Carbonation was lower than typical, but maybe that is a result of the barrel aging. Nice before dinner drink

A rather typical PNW IPA. That isnít a knock on it, just an observation. Strong grapefruit and citrus notes with. Sweet caramel malts to back it up. Medium to thin body. Lingering sweet citrus notes in the medium bitter finish. Not a complex brew. Drinks quite well on a warm afternoon.

Sweeter and fruitier than the base, which at first whiff was a put off, but it opened up very nicely to the point I liked it a little more in the end.

Silver City Liquid Sunshine - Chardonnay Barrel
Draft 10 oz pour at Special Brews. Shiny golden pour with a disappearing head. Soft Belgian banana aroma with a doughy character. Flavor is very similar, though remains a unique Belgian ale. Cool lemon sweet like finish. Yeast is dominant. Fruity and refreshing. I like it.

Silver City Liquid Sunshine - Chardonnay Barrel
Draft at SB. Pours a hazy burnished medium amber with a fizzy white head that sticks around for a while, but not forever. Bright nose, nice combination of light lemony, grassy vinous notes with some soft green apple and peppery spice from the belgian yeast. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Oaky, lemony, grassy, apple-y, peppery mid-palate. Interesting combination of flavors. Easy to enjoy without thinking about too much, but also seems worthy of more careful consideration.
