Fire Lake American Pale Ale (4.00) – Medium body, slight hop bitterness in the finish, highly drinkable
Brookfield Brown English Brown Ale (2.50) – Body a bit thin for the style, needs more malt/roasted flavor
Black Mere Oatmeal Stout (3.00) – Body a bit thin for the style, more roasted malt would be nice
Snickerdoodle Vanilla Porter with Cinnamon (4.00) – Cinnamon evident in flavor bouquet, but not overpowering; unique, complex flavor profile
Opus Kriek Sour Ale with Cherries (5.00) – Excellent balance between the sour taste and maltiness; sour character prominent but not overpowering
