So I seem to have an aversion to canned beers. There has always been something in the flavor of the beer that bothered. people would tell me, not possible or there is a special liner. If that is true, by the time we get through the next couple of podcasts I’ll be seeing silver!
Joining me on this podcast was Kevin Malavarca from the Liquor Outlet in Boonton NJ, and Mark Jackson. We sure missed Marks colorful commentary over the last dozen podcasts, but he is back with a vengeance! The only prerequisite I have for the podcast is a love of beer. You don’t need to know anything about the beers we are drinking only a willingness to try them and voice an opinion.
As usual we have a podcast ready for download:

podcast Stated off with a great aroma and that is where it left us, as Marl said “This could be Montezuma’s revenge!”
|Big Sky Moose Drool Brown Ale
One of the better beers of the night, great malty aroma, creamy with a bit of spice, but desperately lacked in carbonation.
|Southern Star Buried Hatchet Stout
The use of Saphir hops gave this beer a lot of potential, but an astringent flavor ruined the great flavors that were there.
Where do I get more of this! One of our favorites of the night. We were surprised by how subdued the aroma was, but the flavor was was smooth and well balanced
|Surly Coffee Bender
Again, where do I get more of this! Open this can was like walking into your favorite coffee shop. Coffee coffee and more coffee! My personal favorite of the night.
|Southern Star Pine Belt Pale
This beer like the first one had a great nose, but the we got hit with that metallic flavor that caused this podcast to begin with. On top of that there was such a strong buttery flavor and very little little carbonation even with a decent head.
Ummm… listen to the podcast…. Moo Thunder is a pretty decent Stout, nice hint of smoky roasted flavors.
Was this a barley wine or pale ale? The label says American Pale ale. tasted like an English Barley wine, super sweet and malty. It wasn’t a bad beer, just not what we expected.
