I'm p!ssed at all of you guys for not telling me that this collection sucked. The only one that was decent was the Honey Ginger Ale. It was kind of interesting.

The dark wheat was slightly smoky but mainly blah.

The porter was way too sweet.

The Root Beer Brew was just nasty.

Plus I paid 12 dang dollars for it.

I just experienced it myself also. I very rarely find a beer that I won't drink, but I could not finish the Honey Ginger, or the Root Beer Brew. It deeply sadened me to pour about half of them out, but it also made me feel better about my beers! We've really come a long way in brewing since these recipes were created.

Damn..I thought the Ginger Ale and the Porter were great. Not typically my cups of tea, but well done beers.

When I was drinking the porter I imagined I had on a white wig and I was getting ready to sign the Declaration of Independence.

I haven't tried the other 2 yet.

Prolly not worth the money but interesting, IMHO.

I might not have been fair to it and the wheat because the root beer left such a bad taste in my mouth. Figuratively and literally!

I'll keep that in mind.

*makes mental note--drink the dark wheat ale before the root beer*

I had these myself and I LOVED them all! I especially liked the root beer. Keep in mind, these were brewed according to genuine colonial American recipes. With that in mind, you shouldn't expect something "typical". I applaud Boston Brewing for being bold enough to put brews like this out there. It all boils down to, "To each his own".

Oh, I thought it was a cool idea. I'm not dissing that, though it was still a marketing scheme. I'm just saying, didn't make me want to purchase another four.
