Latest Libations: 1st Edition
This is a proper dark beer. It's deep, rich, and creamy, leaving you with a pleasant aftertaste and a sense of great satisfaction. I love the gothy vibe of the bottle as well, "Dark and Brooding" indeed.
|Ballast Point's Grapefruit Sculpin|
This is an IPA, something my husband is fond of but I don't particularly care for. This particular IPA though is infused with natural grapefruit flavor, which my husband is fond of, and so he convinced me to give this one a try. I have to say, it's about the only IPA I'd purposely drink. It's not overpowering with the hops flavor that is standard with IPAs, and it's got a subtle grapefruit flavor that gives it a lighter finish and kind of balances out the hops.
|Woodchuck's Gumption Hard Cider|
I was never much of a hard cider fan, especially after consuming a few too many Reds, but that all changed after my trip to Ireland. Over there, they have Bulmer's Hard Cider, and it's fantastic. I've had good luck finding quality hard ciders, and this is one of those. I was skeptical at first because I'm not a huge fan of Woodchuck Cider, but this is different. Woodchuck's Gumption Hard Cider is absolutely delicious. It's darker than a standard cider, giving it some body, and the apple flavor is reminiscent of fresh squeezed cider.
|Stiegl's Grapefruit Radler|
Radlers are also coming into vogue, and since this one is a grapefruit one, my husband brought it home one day. Radlers are beer mixed with soda, and this one, of course, is grapefruit soda. I love it. I think Radlers are fantastic, but be careful, they go down quick and easy.
What can I say that hasn't already been said about Warsteiner. Warsteiner is one of the most recognizable beer brands in the world, and this is their Dunkel. I prefer dunkels whenever I hit up an Oktoberfest, and Warsteiner has a corner on the market. Still.
|Ciderboy's Pineapple Cider|
This was another hard cider I decided to try on a whim. It's very sweet and reminds me more of a pineapple soda rather than an alcoholic beverage. I won't get these again, but I'd drink one if someone handed it to me.
