Learn how to homebrew

 

We've said this before but it's worth saying again. One cool thing about this beer club is that it makes us try beers that we forget about. Otter Creek is brewed close to us but it's  not something we buy often. There's always so much new stuff coming out that we often forget about great things that we've tried before. The Otter Creek Pale ale and Porter are delicious, in fact after this review we went out and bought some more of them.

Otter Creek Stovepipe Porter

Appearance: Dark dark dark dark ruby red. Nice tan head.

Smell: Coffee grounds and cocoa. Yum! Smells so nice on a cool New England night.

Taste: Mmmm... so good when it hits your lips. We just remarked on how we have to buy Otter Creek beer more! This is a great, dry porter. Lots of coffee in the taste with just a hint of sweetness to make it palatable. This is a dark beer you can easily enjoy summer or winter. Thanks to Gourmet Monthly Clubs for sending the delicious Otter Creek beer. If you're not from around New England, these are the beers that make this club totally worth it!


Tremont Mr Oktoberfest

Appearance: Dark Amber

Smell: Smells like a malty ocotberfest

Taste: Ok first off this is an oktoberfest ale, octoberfest is supposed to be a lager. That said we're actually cool with people messing with stuff like that it just means we need to shift our expectations. This beer is really clean, but too clean for what we want. We like the big malty backbones that most octoberfest beers have and this is just missing that. It's a nice crisp beer but in honestly we're having a hard time telling our brains to expect something different than the lager flavors we're used to. It's interesting and we're glad we tried it, but it's messing with our heads.

 

 

 

 

Otter Creek Pale Ale

Appearance: hazy orangish amber

Smell: nice hops

Taste: very crisp, very refreshing, you can definitely taste the cascade hops coming through. We always forget how good this beer is. We could drink this all the time, in fact we really should buy this more often.


Tremont Freedom Trail IPA

Appearance: Amber

Smell: Light hops and biscuity malt. The hops are a bit dank, even... definitely not light.

Taste: Good hop flavor! Must be lots of late hops added to the boil. It's not overly bitter, but the beer strikes a very nice balance. We wouldn't go to this when we wanted a tooth-kicking-in hop bomb, but we would definitely drink this again! This is much nicer than the old Tremont IPA. Approved!
