Judging Beer Aroma and Flavor

Beer Evaluation - Kinesthetic & Trigeminal Senses

Have you ever listened to a close friend describe an accident or severe pain? Their words are so vivid that you feel a weird shock wave through your body.

CBN Evening Brews at Celebrator.com

“I’m Allison Cook…and I’m Tom Dalldorf…oops!” begins the CBN Evening Brews, a little silly shtick that propels a great idea into the craft beer world.

Is Saké Beer ?

Is saké beer, or is saké a beverage unique unto itself? Many would argue that, since it is made from rice, (a grain), and fermented, it is truly beer.

Beer Fox Tip of the Week:

May Bock, or Maibock, is a seasonal version of Bock Beer, amber in color, and marketed in the Spring, when the colder winter has given in to Mother Nature's warmth. It was designed to give inner warmth to those who strolled into the biergarten, while winds might still be chilly. It is malty, with the prominent character of Noble hops.

Traditionally, it is believed to hail from Einbeck, Lower Saxony, Germany, "the world's first great center of commercial brewing" (according to Michael Jackson).

On the first Sunday of May, Sly Fox Brewing Company in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, holds Goat Races during the Annual Bock Fest, celebrating the release and tapping of their Spring Maibock. The fest features German food, oom-pah music, and lots of great beer - Slacker Bock, Helles Bock, Instigator Doppelbock, two Eisbocks, Royal Weisse, Rauchbier, Pikeland Pils, Helles Golden Lager, and who-knows-what-other-surprises. The newly-tapped Maibock is named after the winning goat each year. More info:

Beer Fox Laugh of the Week:

A C-130 was lumbering along when a cocky F-16 flashed by. The jet jockey decided to show off.

The fighter jock told the C-130 pilot, "Watch this!" and promptly went into a barrel roll followed by a steep climb. He then finished with a sonic boom as he broke the sound barrier. The F-16 pilot asked the C-130 pilot what he thought of that?

The C-130 pilot said, "That was impressive, but watch this!"

The C-130 droned along for about 5 minutes and then the C-130 pilot came back on and said: "What did you think of that?"

Puzzled, the F-16 pilot asked, "What the heck did you do?"

The C-130 pilot chuckled. "I stood up, stretched my legs, walked to the back, went to the bathroom, then got a cup of coffee and a cinnamon bun."

When you are young & foolish - speed & flash may seem a good thing !!!

When you get older & smarter - comfort & dull is not such a bad thing !!!

Us old folks understand this one!

Craft Beer of the Week Award

Biere de Miel Biologique - Brasserie Dupont, Tourpes-Leuze, Belgium
Style: Saison Farmhouse Ale - 8% ABV

Wow! What an aroma! Flowery gardenias and honey. The beautiful body is hazy amber, with a head of tiny tight bubbles and superb creaminess. Made with East Kent Golding Hops and Dupont yeast, flavors of fresh pale fruit emerge, mixed with a peppery earthiness that grabs the tongue and captures your attention.

Cheers!
