BEER DIARY - Sierra Nevada Beer Camp edition
I was feeling all pleased because I got the new Beer Camp with the intention of splitting it with my friend who shared the previous version with me. Then he said no, this is the same one. I would have sworn that I heard there was a new one. I'm still sharing it, and he said what's good enough to enjoy once is good enough to enjoy twice.
- •Sweet Sunny South Table Beer, farmhouse aleEarthy and tart. Bright and crisp.
- •West Latitude Session Rye, ale brewed with hibiscusSmells earthy yet bright. Flavor is dry and rye! And yet there's a little floral tartness and orangey caramel in the aftertaste.
- •Moxee-Moron Imperial Session IPAWhat I call neutral flavors up front, then a bit of grassiness in the middle, then some nice orangey caramel balance underneath.
- •Family Values imperial Brown Ale, Ale brewed with cocoa nibs and honeyA little bit of raisin, a hint of smoke. Very lively carbonation. I wouldn't mind if this weren't so effervescent. // Now that I've reread the description on the bottle, maybe I think the raisiny flavor is more like Tootsie Roll.
- •Pat-Rye-Ot Revolutionary Pale Ale, Ale brewed with applesAroma is bright and fruity. Definite rye dryness and perhaps a little extra bitterness. Maybe like chewing a bite with both apple fruit and a bit of twig.
- •Stout of the Union Robust StoutEver so slight hint of smokiness in the flavor, a bit chocolatey, a bit tobacco-y, and pretty dry.
