Fuller's - Past Masters XX Strong Ale
 
From their Heritage series.
Pours slightly cloudy dark amber with a very full, off-white head.
Aroma of berries and earth, quite a mild aroma. A touch of alcohol comes through.
Feel is very creamy and a bit dry.
Taste is very nice, a touch of dark chocolate, toasted grains and raisin on bread dough. Hints of alcohol come through mostly in the finish.
A bit of sweet honey fills in the middle and a flowery bitterness with a hint of earth finishes it off along with the alcohol.
Very nice and full flavoured English ale. According to the back label this beer is from a recipe dating from Sept. 2 1891. If this is the beer our ancestors were drinking they were doing all right for themselves.

Orange Peel Ale
A thin white head which leaves an even thinner cap.
The beer is a slightly cloudy amber/orange colour, quite appealing.
I didn't find much aroma, just a light orange citrus hint.
The taste is quite citrusy but not particularly orange. There is some honey, earth, and biscuit.
It leaves a clean citrus feel in the mouth but still nothing distinctly orange.
I didn't find what I expected but nevertheless it is still a very nice taste experience.
I did find it slightly watery but I will try this one again, I feel like it holds promise that the bottle I had just didn't quite live up to.



We just visited Great Lakes Brewery and I picked up some more of the Orange Peel Ale. Still the same, still great! Thanks Great Lakes for some good brews!

Orange Peel Ale

A full and slightly off-white head but it disappears pretty quick. It leaves a thin lumpy cap.
The colour is a kind of orange/amber.
Smell seems to have some spice (pepper) and some citrus.
Taste has a hint of orange marmalade, and some bright grapefruit citrus. There is some honey sweet taste and a bit of pine or something.
It is a very bright tasting beer which goes really well on a hot day.

Great Lakes Brewery - Orange Peel Ale 2011
 
Pinkish amber color with a thick white head and a clinging lace.
Aroma is very slight. Just a hint of citrus.
Mouth feel is fairly thin with a touch of creaminess.
This is all about the citrus tang. It's very pleasant, crisp and clean. I really like this.
Great Lakes is a very consistent brewery. If it ain't broke, don't try to fix it. Amen to that.

Beer Quote of the day

One of the hallmarks of the baby boomer generation is that it doesn't live like the previous generation. It hasn't yet given up jeans and T-shirts or beer.

— Ron Klugman

(If you're talking about Coors, then I'm afraid you have given up beer!)
