All Things Alcohol


Recommended Posts

I bought a half case of Beck's Beer recently and had a long neck tonight with dinner. Back in the old days Becks was rated in the same class as Heineken, St. Pauli Girl, maybe a littler lower. I thought it was OK not great and not close to Heineken.  btw have a great 4th.

OK, I am impressed. All these celebrities have their own vineyards. Coppola is a quite popular medium priced offering and GTS (Seaver's) is highly rated. Now you can get a very reasonably priced bottl

I think after age 19 your body rejects Southern Comfort for eternity.

I like Alcohol.

Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale is probably pretty close to Newcastle.  I have not tried it, but I love the Samuel Smith stouts.  They are from similar areas in England and are both Northern England style brown ales whicch tend to be nuttier whereas the southern England style Browns, which I have tried in London are fruitier.  If you do find Samuel Smith, do yourself a favor and try one of their oatmeal stouts as well.

If you can't Samuel Smith's, Founders also makes a nice brown ale.  I have had it, but cannot recall how close it is in flavor to Newcastle.  Closer to hoome - assuming you are in NY, Brooklyn Brewery also makes a brown ale which should be easy to find.

Hey I almost forgot, I tried this awhile back. It was a pretty good beer but it didn't really remind me too much of Newcastle. I didn't end up seeing an oatmeal stout while I was at the liquor store. I think I like this whole style of English brown Ale in general so I'll probably think any of them are at least alright. You say there is a difference between Northern and Southern though? Hmmm next time I'll go and try a bunch of English Ales and compare and see which style I like more. Probably Northern but who knows. Also the site lists your birthday as today so if that's right have a good one man.

Ok I’m a big Sam Adams fan so when we saw a 28 pack of Sam Adams Octoberfest selling at BJs for $30 had to get one. I like it a lot a little lighter than Boston Lager. Just had a bottle tonight after work watching college football. Pretty happy camper minus Jets and this world. image.thumb.jpeg.0b27591cdb1f1eb5d2641dbf49c135df.jpeg

I've never had Sam Adams but I've wanted to try it for a long time just haven't got around to it.

So I tried two new rums and a new whiskey semi recently let me see if I can remember what they were called to tell you all what I thought about them.

I didn't buy this so I have no idea if this is cheap or expensive or in the middle or what. It was pretty good though. It had flavor and some bite to let you know it will **** you up if you overdo it but not so much that it tasted like ass. I didn't buy it and I probably wouldn't buy it in the future but I did like it so if it gets left in my lap like this last time I will definitely accept it.

This one was also pretty good. A little sweet but it's rum so that kind of makes sense. I'm not the kind of guy that goes into all the wacky flavors like "ohhh a hint of cherry and mmmmm notes of vanilla mmmm a clean after taste etc etc". All I can tell you is it was pretty good and I liked it and I would buy it again...if not for the fact that the other bottle of rum I got I liked at least twice as much.

This rum I liked a LOT. I normally don't buy the same bottle twice because I like to try new things but I might get this again. It was pretty affordable iirc (so was the other rum I think) and just really tasted like how I feel a rum should taste. Not too heavy on the spices but still a little funky and maybe not quite as alcoholic as some booze you can find but it will get the job done. I didn't mix it in any cocktails but now that I'm talking about it I think I will get a second bottle at some point and make a few drinks and see how they come out.

 

Oh and as an aside I tried one of those little sample bottles of the Kraken rum. It was ok but nothing to write home about. If it was available at a friends house or a party I wouldn't say no to it but I don't think it's something I'd spend money on for myself.
