Four String Hilltop Heritage Lager
Best before date of 10/02/2017 printed on the bottom of the can (16 ounce can). I believe this was just released about a week or so ago so itís pretty new and fresh. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear pale gold color with about a half inch white head that stuck around a while. Thereís also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like bready malt, grassy hops and a bit of apple. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some graininess. Mouthfeel/body is light, itís smooth and goes down easy. I think itís a good lager, and one thatís definitely "crushable". If Four String decides to make this a regular brew, then this could be one that I keep in the fridge a lot for spring and summer days! $7.99 a 6-pack.

Four String Rectifier
Tap at pivot in pickerington. Pours light for style and body follows. Nose is hop and sugary citrus. Hop bite is in there and blunted sugar blocks it at times. A bit flat bodied and not a great specimen for style.

Four String Solo Series #17: Switchblade IPA
Tasted from a 12oz. can. A near clear golden pour with a bubbly white head. Citrus and malt aroma that's a bit musty. Slightly bitter up front, with more bitterness to follow in the after taste. Taste like a macro brew. Nothing special about this one, and not a beer I would purchase again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Four String Motorbreath
750 ml bottle, 2016 vintage, bottle #304 of 360. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head that stuck around a little while. Thereís also a good amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like dark fruit (raisin, plum), chocolate, roasted malt, and a bit of licorice. For the most part I think the taste is just like the aroma, but with some coffee flavor noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, itís creamy and coating with a moderate amount of carbonation. I think itís a good overall brew, worth picking up if you want a nice straight forward imperial stout. Hereís hoping Four String brings this back in the future! $9.99 a bottle.

Four String Solo Series #25: Ghost Ship Vortex Baltic Porter
750 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm - thanks again, Chris! Bottle 29/360. Didnít realize there were so many variants of this, but this didnít appear to be one of them. Pours a cloudy chocolate brown with a small beige head that settles into a thin ring, leaving some spots in the glass. Notes of toast, nuts, chocolate, fudge, molasses, and vanilla. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, malty, toasty mouthfeel. A little different than the description. I almost get a peanut butter in here; couldíve been tricked into thinking this was a variant. Not bad, but a unique take on the style.

Four String Vanilla Porter
12 ounce can into pint glass, best before 3/17/2017. Pours crystal clear deep reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of vanilla, milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted brown bread, light nuttiness/coffee, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, vanilla, and light earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big vanilla, milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted brown bread, light nuttiness/coffee, herbal, light pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy hop and light roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of vanilla, milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted brown bread, light nuttiness/coffee, herbal, pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, vanilla, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and minimal astringent hop flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy/bready, fairly sticky, and slightly chalky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6%. Overall this is a very nice American style vanilla porter. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, vanilla, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. Just a bit too bitter/drying than I would have preferred; this still has really great malt complexity and balance with the vanilla bean flavors. A very enjoyable offering.
