Support Small Business

August 7, 2012

Stole this from the Ol’ FaceSpace.  One day this will ring a little louder when we take the plunge, but still is a good way to shop and live in the community until then.

 

When you buy from a small “mom and pop” business, you are not helping a CEO buy a third vacation home. You are helping a little girl get dance lessons, a little boy get his team jersey, a mom or dad put food on the table, a family pay a mortgage, or a student pay for college. Our customers are our shareholders, and THEY are the ones we strive to make happy. Thank you for supporting small businesses!

Hold the Line APA

June 30, 2012

APA

A: Pours a deep copper amber color with a good three fingers thick of persistent tan rocky foam head. Some large bubbles form sticky globs of lace all the way down the glass. The carbonation could be a bit much.

S: Nice dank and pine notes up front with some light suggestions of citrus and an underlying sweet pale malt aroma. Pretty nice nose on it, will dry hop this with some Cascades next time.

T: Has a nice caramel full body with some hop notes in the end. Its still pretty green, I have a feeling it will get better with some age on it.

M: Lighter body nearing Medium thickness. Creamy with a real dry and crisp finish.

D: A bold and hoppy APA. Time will tell on this one.

A – Poured out a clear, copper color with a one-finger, off-white head of foam. It left sudsy trails of lace on the glass.

S – It smelled of pine and citrus with a biscuity malt nose.

T – It tasted of nice bitter/piney hops with a citric kick. Good caramel and toffee flavors added a nice backbone.

M – It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O – Very taste take on a pale ale from Exposure brewing

Exposure Brewing ESB

A: Pours is amber/light copper with a creamy off-white head.

S: Some moderate caramel and toffee notes and a floral, earthy hoppiness. Not an overly intense nose, but it’s an English style.

T: Very bready on the palate with a mild amount of hop bitterness. Again, the hops are primarily floral and earthy, and the sweetness is not quite as noticeable as on the nose.

M: The body is medium and so is the level of carbonation. The finish leaves a lingering bitterness.

D: Not too bad, I am not sure I would call it great but not bad for the first attempt.

A: Burgundy to light brown in color, A lot of foam initially, but it subsides quickly most likely due to just being carbed.

S: Smells sweet very malt forward, not as aromatic as I would have hoped due to lower fermentation temp. Alcohol is covered up well, not hot at all.

T: A touch of fruit and malt. A caramel type sweetness is present as well.

M: A nice amount of carbonation that will build in time, and good body.

D: A delicious Dubbel, will only get better in time.
