Beer Enthusiasts Beware: Good Beer Here Pt. 2

Firstly, you’ll have to excuse my phone’s picture quality, I’ll be getting a new one when my contract is up and you will have the benefit of fabulous photos in the 8 Megapixel dimension.  That being said, I’ve had the chance to go back to Dr. Jekyll’s Beer Lab and have another four beer (Two Dogfish Head, and Two Rahr & Sons) that I’d like to share.

I’ve mentioned Dogfish Head in my other beer article, but Rahr & Sons is a new brew to me.  Rahr is a Fort Worth native brewery, and the two brews I tried were the Texas Red Amber Lager and the Gravel Road German-Style Altbier.  You can get a full list of their brews here. I also tried Dogfish Head’s Palo Santo Marron, and their Indian Brown Ale.

This is the Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale. It had a sweet start, and a malty body. Slightly hoppy as well. Overall it was very nice, but not my favorite ale.

Rarh’s Texas Red Amber Lager was very tasty. A hint of caramel and a beautiful dark amber color. Malty with a mix of hops. It also had variations of fruit. Overall a good standard ale.

Rahr’s Gravel Road Altbier was nice, but pretty dark. I’m not one for very hoppy brews, but overall it was interesting. Hop Beginning and malt type finish. It tasted a little of chocolate or other roasted flavor.

Dogfish Head’s Palo Santo Marro was the best of the brews I tried this time. It was very malty, only slightly bitter. It was earthy and I could taste the Palo Santo barrel. Caramel and Vanilla flavors popped up as well. Overall it was a very smooth and enjoyable beer.

If you try any of these, comment and let me know how you like them. Overall I enjoyed them, though some more than others. But that is the wonderful aspect of being a beer enthusiast. Finding that beer that makes your soul sing is worth the experience!
