It was ok though to drink beer with breakfast cause it was past nine and boy was it good. Great full beer that doesn’t over power. I don’t know my oatmeal stouts, I have maybe tried one other, this one makes me quite excited to try more.
Been a long time summit EPA fan but haven’t really branched out to try many of their other flavors. I was way disappointed with the winter ale, the plum/raisin taste was nasty, but the maibock is especially great. Nice full flavor that leaves you wanting more. I found myself not being able to put the bottle down since I just wanted to keep tasting it. Too bad I only had one. So I am off to the liquor store for more!!
Flat earth has been really good to me but not with the warlock. I like the hops but can’t enjoy it with all the sweet. It’s like someone dumped a bunch of corn syrup into my beautiful beer. Why would you do such a thing??? I guess it’s just not for me.
I tasted Finnegan’s for the first time about a year ago and liked it quite a bit then. I was equally as pleased with the beer this time around as well. It’s got a familiar Summit taste, which I really dig, but a bit more mellow. In my book they get four stars just for giving so much money to charity but luckily the beer is good as well.
It’s a pilsner….not a bad one but i’m not a pilsner fan.
Looking forward to Finnegan’s.
The first time I ever had Lake superior ale was when I was in Duluth of all places. Even though I am much further away from the great lake it tastes just as good. A nice solid ale, can’t say anymore.
Even though I was expecting bad things due to the plum, this beer wasn’t particularly great or bad. Nothing about it stood out to me and nothing was offensive. Maybe it’s the brand but it did have quite a bit of carbonation to it. Nothing to report really.
The first sip has the familiar Surly taste to it, which I for one am crazy for. But after you swallow you begin to taste all those cranberries Surly was talking about, that part I am not so crazy for. The beer was worth the experience but will definitely not have a place in my refrigerator.
Another fine beer in the flat earth catalog, possibly my favorite!!! Although i think this is due more to my love for prog rock. Sad but true, i am a recovering rush fan. I have moved on to finer prog music but i did have to break out the old “A Farewell to Kings” album while drinking this tasty beverage. They went together great.
One sip will tell you that this is surely a winter beer with all the raisin flavor you could ask for. Really though, I don’t want any of that raisin in my beer. It is about this time that I start getting really sick of winter and maybe my seasonal discontent shows a bitter reflection upon my beer palate. Yet what I really need is a tall cold dark hoppy beer to end a hot summer day. Love ya Summit but better luck next winter.
I’ve had this beer a few times at bars and restaurants and liked it quite a bit. In the can it losses a bit of something, it just isn’t as flavor full in the can. With that said, it wasn’t bad in the can but if you have had it before on tap you probably won’t be as pleased. For that reason I give the beer a 4 overall, the can alone would be 3 1/2 and the tap would be 4 1/2.
I have had this beer a few times and it must be my favorite from the flat earth collection. Nice big taste, let’s you know you are drinking a beer. I actually know Jeff, the brewer and founder of flat earth, through one of my friends. He is a really great guy and you should look into taking a tour of his brewery. I found it really educational.
I had never tried gluek’s before and was pretty excited since the twelve pack i found was something like $6.00. Well there was a reason it was so cheap. The first half of the beer was tough to choke done but did get better into the second. If you are looking for some cheap beer for a party, this is your beer but if you want something tasty you may have to wait until next week.
