    Oak Jacked was quite good. Reminded me a lot of Rumpkin.

    I think GR's marketing far exceeds their quality. Not that their beer is bad by any means, but when you have so many great breweries in CA you either have to match up to them or get lost in the shuffle. GR gets lost in the shuffle, IMO. Heck, I much prefer Ladyface, a brewery with pretty much no marketing at all to GR.

    I do not have an educated palate. Don't do microbrews/craft brews etc...I am a beer drinker.

    That being said, I tend to like Newcastle. Not as a mainstay, but as something I go for when I want to enjoy...the darkness. Bitter, heavy, nutty...whatever you wanna call it. As a fan, I give their attempts to diversify a shot. The first one I tried...summer ale...was nice. Golden, drinkable...biggest con was that it had the heaviness to remind you of the name. I get it, but mixed feelings. Then Werewolf. Nice. Kinda red...kinda Killians. Cool name/design, but not enough for me to be a fan. They have gone Winter ale...and Founders ale...but I skipped both because I just felt that, so far, they hadn't really done any better than the mother of it all...the old Brown.

    And then THIS



    I was craving something dark. Fully planning on a 12er of Brown...and I spied this at Smart and Final. ok...this is clearly a shot at a Guiness type beer. AND I hate Guiness. TOOOOOOOOO bitter. Mud. This is a great DARK beer. Not too dank/heavy, and basically Brown without the nutty light flavors. Four of these went down nice and smooth. Like the Brown, the more room temp...the better. I gotta stock up on this un. It's lovely.

    Meant no disrespect...just come in here and feel inadequate because I drink stuff you can buy at the local Rite Aid.

    No offense taken. Some people take beer way too seriously. Sadly I used to be one of them before I wisened up. Or should I say, weizened up.

    FW Velvet Merkin. Not as creamy and chewy as I was hoping for, then again if it was it would be called Parabola. Despite it's thinner body, the beer does the bourbon, vanilla, and brown sugar thing nicely.
