Dancing Gnome Nelson Jam 3.7  
Dancing Gnome Beer Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Mission Dolores, tap: pours orangey haze with a white head. Aroma is citrus and some tropical fruitiness. Taste is slightly bitter. Slightly sweet. Quite fruity. Pretty good.

Decadent Ales Pecan Pie 3.9  
Decadent Ales Mamaroneck, New York
Clear copper and peach coloured body with a rich, tan head, only one centimetre tall, but microfoamed and looking nice on top. Aroma of super pungent nuts, caramelised sugars, grain and a dash of pure candy bars and earthy malts. Strong throughout in the nose, but very fragrant and deep. Medium to Full-bodied; Deep robust caramelised sugar sweetness at first with bunches of maple syrup, molasses and of course - bunches of pecans and nuts of all types. Aftertaste shows the alcohol, strong malt and almost cloying, deep sugars, with a great balance, but lighter hop pungency and almost no bitterness as the flavour are dedicated to sugars, nuts and alcohol. Overall, a rich and pungent beer with a lot of caramelised sugars and nuts, alcohol and body, but hardly any 'true' IPA notes, as this was more of an American Strong, but still showed well, regardless of style definition. While not sublime, this beer was worth trying and I'm hoping to see in the subsequent calendar items.

Grimm City Vision 4.0  
Grimm Artisanal Ales Brooklyn, New York
Can picked up at M&F Bottleshop and shared at home - opaque amber with a puffy white head. Bold fruity with notes of stone fruit with some peach and lychee, some nectarines and mango, citrus undertones, substantial soft mouthfeel and body, sweet with just a hint of citrus peel bitterness into the hoppy finish. Lovely.

Wicked Weed Dark and Stormy (Rum Barrel) 4.0

Jester King No Whalez Here 3.2

Very cloudy straw gold with a big spicy coriander aroma with lots of herbal and acidic notes. Very dry very bretty and metallic. Not a huge fan to be honest.

Foley Brothers Big Bang 3.6  
Foley Brothers Brewing Brandon, Vermont

Tröegs Golden Thing 3.1  
Tröegs Brewing Company Hershey, Pennsylvania
Clear golden coloured body with a peach glow, some small bubbles rising from the sideso f the glass and a thin, single centimetre tall, off-white, large-bubbled head. Aroma of grass, alcohol, pine, flowers, hay and a healthy dose of cleanser - deep and astringent thorughout the nose. Medium-bodied; Deep grassy and herbal flavour with a lot of pine, malt and especially astringent flavours noticeable. Strong hops on the finish that have more character than bitterness - fairly nice and robust. Aftertaset shows some bittterness from the hops with a grassy and herbal bite, but also dry and lightly medicinal - strong throughout the finish. Overall, a deep and robust beer with a good balance, but deep, astringent flavours and a smooth, light fruit-based sweetness at the absolute end - a nice and subtle variance from before. Good to try, but not great nor really recommended when other Imperial IPAs are around - but it's definitely not a bad beer. I sampled this sixteen ounce, pint-sized can, purchaased from Crystal City Wine Shop in Arlington, Virgini on 13-September-2019 for US$3,65 sampled at my house a few blocks away in Washington on 14-Sptember-2019, just a day later.

Aslin Glamping 3.9  
Aslin Beer Company Herndon, Virginia
Shared at bottleshare: pours black with a beige head. Aroma is loads of peanut butter and some chocolate. Taste is sweet, but not too sweet. Loads of nuts and chocolate. Thick but not too thick. Pretty drinkable.

Löwenbräu Buttenheim Buttenheim, Bavaria
The beer has got a hazy dark golden brownish color with a steady head and medium body. Aroma of grains and malt. Taste of hops, bread, straw, grains and nuts. Malty hints.

Auerbacher Zoigl 3.0  
Privatbrauerei Dorfner Hirschau, Bavaria
€-Fläschla: Pale golden to golden, hazy, lively carbonation, smaller persistent white foamy layer, sweetish grainy-dusty to pale malty nose, honeyish spots and herbal-grassy hops underneath; mild to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied, quite soft; slightly lingering sweetish grainy finish with a mild but balancing herbal bitterness in the aftertaste. Unspectacular, but pretty decent and well quaffable Bier...
