Lake Placid Craft Brewing Company – UBU Ale (English Strong Ale)

  • 7.00% ABV
  • OK so you can color me surprised. I do not, under any circumstances, like English Strong Ales. But this is pretty not bad. It has a enjoyable amount of malts without being super shitty about it. It’s not so strong that you cant enjoy the beer but it is certainly isnt shy. It isnt bad but it also isnt my style.

New England Brewing Co. – 668 Neighbor of the Beast (Belgian Strong Pale Ale)

  • 9.00% ABV
  • No sir! No sir, I dont like it. It is probably a fucking awesome beer because I almost like it. Almost… It is so Belgian tasting that it is driving me batty. I taste it and it is good and then that sweetness sets in and ruins the whole experience. At least it is stupidly high in ABV, which is a good thing if you are a fucking hobo.

Baxter Brewing Co. – Stowaway I.P.A. (American IPA)

  • 6.90% ABV
  • Woohoo that is a good IPA. I like the whole pine forest taste thing it has going on. I would like to figure out what hops they used in this because they are really good. It also has a pretty decent malt taste to it which I dont really care for but it works here. Normally I dont like the malts to detract from the hops but it totally works.

Baxter Brewing Co. – Pamola Xtra Pale Ale (American Pale Ale)

  • 4.90% ABV
  • Well it is is crisp and I am pretty sure that is what they are going for, so success on that front.  That isnt fair, this is pretty good, and since it was brewed in Maine which is almost exclusively populated by half-wits I should cut it some slack. It is a excellent example of what I like to think a APA should taste like.
