    Default St. Peter's Organic Ale

    I really like this beer! I'd recommend trying it if you come across it. They have it at Liquorama in Upland and at a very good Mexican/Cal Fresh restaurant in El Monte called El Patio Bar and Grill on Ramona.

    I think Beer Advocate has it listed as a dopplebock. Dark and nice with a bock bite and a lingering bitterness on the tongue. I enjoyed it and the hoppy bitterness wasn't too much for my tastes. I'm sure you guys have tried it many moons before but I just wanted to add my .02.


    They have Optimator on tap at Rush Street in culver city. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it.

I was expecting a more robust malt taste and smoke presence but the complex hops and floral flavors were what kept my attention the most. For a Stone beer, I was expecting something with a bigger punch and a bit more on the creamy syrupy style, however, I enjoyed this beer and would definitely buy another bottle.
    This is a solid porter. Not overdone with the smokeishness, and pretty hoppy for what it is.

    Victory Golden Monkey (Tripel) – This beer was a stow away in my six pack of Storm King. This beer is a Belgian style with a pale gold color and little head. The aroma was rather mild. The beer has a pronounced clove taste with a mild hop bitter finish but it was all pretty well balanced without being too overloaded with spice. It certainly wasn’t a bad beer but it was okay. I like Belgians, however I like heavier, more malty beers better.

    I grabbed an Anchor Small Beer last night. Their Small Beer is made from the second runnings of their Old Foghorn, i.e. it's a second beer made from the same mash. Now I pretty much love all that Anchor produces - Steam Beer, Porter, and especially Old Foghorn Barleywine. And the fact that Fritz Maytag was the first CA "craft" brewer I hold them in highest regard. However, I really didn't care too much for the Small Beer. Very little body (almost watery - which I should have expected given the probable low gravity), a dose of hops up front but not really in a manner that I liked (astringent but not in a very pleasant way), and the finish was pretty much meh (like it didn't have one). I guess that should have been expected given that the good stuff was sparged off in the making of the Old Foghorn. I just figured there would be a bit more to this beer. I can't recommend going out and buying this in any quantity. It's worth getting and trying at least for historical purposes as the "small beer" style is a forgotten craft (if this is how most small beers are I can see why). But really not anything that I would drink again. Anyway, I'm curious to know if anybody else has tried it. Tell us what you think.

    Unibroue Trois Pistoles – Hearing a lot about this brewery and seeing their 4 packs forever, I picked up this one. The beer poured a very dark brown, almost black in color with a fairly creamy head. The aroma was complex and I could only decide on a “fruit and vegetable” characteristic of it. It was milder in strength and body than I would assume for a beer of this darkness and bouquet. The taste was complex with many flavor tones there but the only one I could really pick out was a very slight clove. The taste would come out pretty quickly in the mouth and finish quickly as well with a very mild hop bitter finish. Overall I think this is a very good beer and I’m glad I have 3 more bottles of it!
