    Locally brewed red ale at the Tap House in The Rocks. Great beer, probably could have used just a little less water in the brew as the flavor is fantastic but just a little light for an ale.

    Two beers without the overwhelming citrus flavors of modern IPAs but deep flavor, thick consistency and great balance between hops and malts

    Picked up a pack of pint cans to satisfy the IPA crowd I was having. On the good side, smooth, comes in the 16oz can, and Long Trail is overall a good name. On the other side- another IPA. Meh.

    These guys were doing good shit, linked up with the Belgians, and continue to do good shit. Not quite sure what they did here but appears the brewers went to Belgium to brew this and then imported it to their brewery in NY. Good shit, sour brown ale at 5%.

    Yup.
    Also, Uinta fucking sucks in my experience. Each time I try to give them a second/third/eighteenth chance I am barely satisfied at best and disgusted at worst. Honestly, it is my bad for expecting more from Utah...

    IDK, I had the Uinta black and it was ok, had something else from them that was not as memorable. I did see the above in the store the other day and passed it by without a 2nd thought because the trend lately seems to be to put lime into gose beers and I just don't find that salt is a good ingredient for beer. Otherwise, maybe I would have briefly considered it had I seen this was a pilsner. If you've ever had a Corona with a lime in it... the above has to be better, doesn't it?!
    Also @Fist 666 Uinta did make a Golden Spike hefeweizen(?), good at least for the label.

    Really annoyed, a head cold kicked in just as I was sampling these last night and I have no idea how good they were as I couldn't taste a fucking thing.

    Had this last week and liked it. Really enjoying the brown ales of late.

    Finally got my shit together and put a brew on.

    Was supposed to start off simple with extract and maybe some dry hopping. But noooooo, I couldn't help myself and decided to do a half boil and ended up with a frankenbrew.

    1 can of Coopers IPA extract
    200gm of crystal malt
    750gm dextrose
    165gm of LME
    90gm of DME
    30 gm of Amarillo for 60mins
    12gm of Citra and 15gm of Amarillo for 10ins

    Problem was that as I was steeping the crystal malt I put the stove on low and got distracted. Came back and found it at 95c, which probably messed it up. Flavour had turned from sweetness to tea flavour (no astringency though). Also, I put the extract into the mash and boiled it for 30 mins and there was a bit of a burnt flavour in it so I added another 250gm of dextrose and made the whole volume of water at 30lt instead of 28lt.

    The final flavour seems ok, the initial gravity reading was 1033 (but at 22c and I haven't converted so it may be a little lower). Now the challenge will be keeping it below 20c as the days get warmer. I haven't acquired a fridge yet but will soonish....., was getting back into brewing to save money and I've spent well over AUD$200 just to get set up again!!
