Anchor Liberty IPA 3.5  
Anchor Brewing Company San Francisco, California
33cl Bottle @ Slainte, Salamanca, Spain. Amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma is hops, citrus, malt, sweet, tropical fruits. Taste hops, citrus, malt, caramel, red fruits, floral.

Kirin Nodogoshi 0.6  
Kirin Brewery Company Tokyo, Japan
This beer is made using soybeans instead of malt as a tax avoidance by the Kirin company in Japan to reduce the cost. As a result it lacks body and flavor. It is an imitation of a beer. It tastes like a watered down pilsner.

Tallgrass Moro St. Wheat 3.2  
Tallgrass Brewing Company Manhattan, Kansas
Gold color with haze. Thin and bubbly white head. Grape fruity aroma with some grains. Taste is full of grape fruity hops and dry wheaty malts. Clean and dry and hoppy. An solid and well hopped wheat ale.

Dogfish Head Oak-Aged Vanilla World Wide Stout 2.4  
Dogfish Head Brewery Milton, Delaware
Ultra overhyped, overrated beer in my opinion. Dogfish Head is hit or miss. I found this bottle at a grocery store for way too much! A dark hue with zero head or lace. The nose is of faint caramel. It has the booze but lacks a body. It just feels like from top to bottom a flat aged stout but without its complexity. The taste had me wondering when the flavor would happen, but it never does or did. Huge disappointment!

Stone Ripper 3.9  
Stone Brewing Escondido, California
Pungent hop resin on the aroma with some tropical fruit. Tropical fruit flavour also. A little thin, slightly dry finish and very drinkable.

Clown Shoes Chocolate Sombrero 3.3  
Clown Shoes Beer Ipswich, Massachusetts
12 oz bottle into a La Chouffe stemmed tulip on 15th Jan 2018 at my Son-in-Laws in California. Very dark body, tanned head that soon turned into a wisp and collar. Chocolate notes in the nose, light coffee esters also. Taste came across as chocolate flavoured with a light spicy note or two, coffee grains in the mix as well. I can just about feel a mini chili hotness, but this isn't a 'thing' in the overall context of the brew.

Lindisfarne Black Beer & Honey 3.4  
Lindisfarne Mead Berwick-on-Tweed, Northumberland
Bottle thanks to Ashton McCobb. Pours clear honey gold. Aromas of burnt bread and honey. Sweet taste, sweet finish.

Firestone Walker Stickee Monkee 3.9  
Poured from 650mL bottle [No. 003 - 2016 vintage - 11.6% ABV]. Clear dark amber brown with beige head. Caramel malt with lots of dried fruits, a little bourbon in the background, alcohol is mild, I aged this for about a year and I think it may have actually hurt it a bit. It still tasted good, but had a slightly flat quality about it that I can't put my finger on.

Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Märzen 3.9  
Brauerei Heller Bamberg, Bavaria
Bottle as a gift from my sons. Poured black with an off white head. Aroma of smoke, meat, roasted grains. Taste was mild sweet, bacon, smoke, BBQ smoked pork, roasted grains, barley.

Gigantic Ginormous 3.5  
Gigantic Brewing Co. Portland, Oregon
Bottle thanks to douglas! Deep cloudy amber pour with a small head. Smells a bit hot. Toffe-dipped tropical fruit. Plenty of mango and grapefruit. Some sharp alcohol bite. Clean, bracingly bitter finish. Chewy malt backbone. Tropical fruit hop character supporting. Decent gear.

Elysian Bifröst Winter Ale 4.0  
Elysian Brewing (AB InBev) Seattle, Washington
At the brewery and from a take home growler. Pours golden amber with head and lace in a St Bernardus tulip glass. Aroma of rich malts. Medium carbonation and significant mouthfeel. Flavors of amber malts, caramel, medium grains & hops, slight Italian herbs, subtle alcohol. Overall rich, flavorful, and tasty enough from a flight of 5 to pick this one to get a growler.

Saltspring Golden Ale 2.6  
Gulf Islands Brewery Salt Spring Island, British Columbia
Not my amour its type of ale as it wasn't robust enough to excite my taste buds. Solid be but no unique characteristics.
