  1. District Brew Yards Advent Calendar: Day 5

    Casa Humilde Cafecito

    Casa Humilde Cafecito

    Coffee Porter
    5.2% ABV

    A solid, straightforward beer, and one I’ve always liked. Not overpowering with coffee, nor too sweet or rich. Just a tasty, easy drinking beer. Roasted malts weave with coffee and cocoa before a moderate bitter finish. What more do you need?

    Burnt City Face Melter Hibiscus IPA

    Burnt City Face Melter Hibiscus IPA

    Hibiscus IPA
    7.0% ABV

    Never was my favorite. The hibiscus adds another dimension to the IPA, but it’s a floral character that doesn’t work for me. This can has what is to me an off flavor of butterscotch that makes me think of diacetyl. Just not my favorite. Oh well, can’t win them all.

    Around the Bend Delilah Jones Pomegranate Amber Ale

    Around the Bend Delilah Jones

    Amber Ale with Pomegrante Juice
    6.3% ABV
    36 IBU

    This is not a fruit beer, but a simple, solid Amber Ale enhanced with a bit of pomegranate juice. Not too sweet, appropriately bitter, clean, clear, highly drinkable, and a relaxing offering early in the calendar.

    Casa Humilde Campesino

    Casa Humilde Campesino

    Saison
    4.7%

    A dry nose of Noble hops and with a cracker-y base. Definitely some spice on the nose as well, presumably from the yeast. The aroma is really nice, lovely yeast and punchy hops blend well to provide nice character. Very drinkable and seemingly quite fresh, this is lively and enjoyable on the tongue. Some mild sweetness initially, morphing into the yeasty esters and moderate bitterness on the finish.

    This is definitely something right up my alley.

  5. District Brew Yards Advent Calendar: Day 1

    Who’s a Hazy Boi? by Bold Dog Beer Co.

    Hazy Boi

    Double Dry Hopped IPA
    7.3%
    35 IBU

    Not a new offering for me, but it is tasty. Quite fruity, with loads of tropical fruit sweetness up front. Some bitterness on the back end, but nothing too strong. Almost a bit of blend of traditional IPA flavors in a hazy offering. A nice start to the advent season.
