Maui Brewing Company, Mana Wheat (American wheat beer brewed with pineapple): 2.0
The only thing offensive about this beer is how forgettable it is in its mediocrity. The pineapple adds an unusual taste, but I would not have guessed that it was pineapple, it’s so faint. It was worth a try, I guess. Disappointed. If you like beer that goes down easy and doesn’t impress you or make you think about it, much less savor it, this is one way to go.
Rogue Ales, Chocolate Stout: 4.0
Very nicely balanced. Sweet, but not cloying, and a perfect amount of chocolate flavor. Very well done.
Red Seal: 3.5
A nicely balanced, slightly bitter red ale. The aroma is very nice. There’s something about the taste I don’t quite prefer, but J sure digs it. I certainly wouldn’t refuse it if it were offered.
For the scale, see previous post.
