Thanks!!! That's actually what I use. Pure grade B Vermont maple syrup. A # increases your OG by about .01

Beer #41 - Tumbler - Sierra Nevada

Rough pour opens up very fluffy light cream colored head that takes its time fading back down leaving a decent lacing. Copper with tints of red in color. The aroma is malty and roasty. Tastes like it smells with a coffee-like roastiness up front and a subtle touch of cocoa, nuttiness, and honey in the finish. Light to medium body.

My Grade - B

Beer #42 - Monk In The Trunk Organic Amber- Inlet

Nice copper color with a off white one finger head and decent lacing. Malty aroma with a mild sourness in the background. Nothing unpleasant though. Taste is malty, toasty and bready, slightly chewy mouthfeel. Not a very long finish. Overall a decent simple session beer. Not extraordinary but not bad either by any means.

My grade - B

Beer #43 - Long Hammer IPA- Redhook

A hearty rough pour builds up a frothy clean white head that slowly falls leaving a nice lacing. The color is yellow-gold and is fairly cloudy. The aroma is piney and resiny up front with a little citrus and malt in the background. Not a lot of flavor the second the beer hits the tongue but the mid palate is piney. The finish is piney with a grapefruit-like citrus note that lingers on the back of the tongue. Crisp and pretty dry this IPA isnt bringing much to the table as far as body goes. All in all, I like the flavors and aroma I just wish the hops popped a bit more and had more of a in your face presence that I like in my IPAs.

My Grade - B

Review #44 - Zombie Killer Cherry Cyser- by B Nektar Meadery

Tonight's review is something special. While the rest of the list is beer this review is a Cyser, and one that's really popular down here with the craft lovers. So here we go....

Pours a rose like pinkish red color that looks similar to watered down ruby red grapefruit juice. Very carbed and crisp. Apples and a touch of honey and cherry on the nose. Cidery taste up front and golden apples mid palate. Long finish of cherries and honey that lingers on the back of the tongue in between sips. Not too dry, no tang or bitterness, and no vinegar notes. Smooth and delicious sip after sip!!!

My Grade - A+

Beer #45 - Swamp Ape IPA - Florida Beer Co.

It's always nice getting to drink a craft. It's usually better when it's brewed in the state you live in. Today's review starts out with a rough pour light orange in color opening up an off white head the size of a finger or two. The head quickly recedes leaving a good lacing on the glass. The nose is resin piney and almost spanish cedar-like, grassy, earthy, and has a touch of citrus. The flavor starts with a big hoppy punch that tastes like bitter orange peel and a piney resinous. The mid palate I pick up what seems like some Belgian candi sugar that's followed by a subtle underlying toasty biscuit malt character. The finish is more of the piney resinous flavor. Body is medium but dry making for a nice crispness. Overall for being a 10abv beer there isn't much heat or heavy alcoholic flavor. Though I do taste and smell some medicinal off notes. I have had this beer before and didn't notice these medicinal subtleties so I don't know why I taste it in this one.

My Grade - B

Beer #46 - Horizon Red Ale - Summit Brewing Co

I usually pour pretty ruff but this is one heady beer. An easy pour makes a 3 to 4 finger head that's off white in color. Great lacing all the way down the glass. Resiny, slightly spicy, and floral aroma with a touch of malt backing it all up. The taste is hoppy following the same profile with a touch of citrus and a light malty background. Though as the warms a bit the balance gets much better bringing out the malt a lot more. Really good body, its a decently filling beer. Overall I thought this was a really good beer and example of the style.

My Grade - A

Beer #47 - Dead Guy - Rogue

This one is pretty much a staple in the craft brew scene at this point. It delivers quality every time I've had one and to boot, you can bottle harvest the yeast. An easy pour leaves a nice off white 2-3 finger head atop a golden orange brew that doesn't leave much lacing. It has a nice aroma of honey and maltiness with light hoppy notes in the background. The flavor is similar to the aroma with a nice even bitterness to back it up and some orange citrus like flavors in the finish. The carbonation is nice and while light, the beer has some body to it. All around incredible balance makes this a very great session beer or pairing for dinner.

My Grade - A

A lot of these selections with high reviews are just too sweet for me to be enjoyable. And I found the Innis and Gunn beer to be absolutely horrid. That's the thing about reviews... They're extremely personal and suit the tastes of the reviewer. One man's gold can easily be another man's garbage. Bulk reviews help somewhat with that dilemma, like those on Beeradvocate.

I agree, taste is extremely subjective and preference is another huge factor altogether. If you find our palate and preferences are similar these reviews may be helpful or informative. If not, they probably don't do much for you at all. Personally I like to do it to log all the different crafts I drink and to practice developing a better more refined palate.
