A hidden gem?

I really want to find a Cold Spring beer that I like. And it seems likely that among the many different lines they produce that there would be a hidden gem. So when I found the Colonial Pub Pints I was pretty excited. They come in tall cans (just like Surly!) and the labels feel right with their old time mustachio’d gentlemen. But the Hefeweizen is still lacking something, and I can only describe it as tasting watered down.

Now when I purchased the four pack at Surdyk’s I saw the Colonial Pub Pint Old Johnny Ale variety as well. It was on a display that said “Manager’s Choice,” and at the sale price of $4.50 I picked up a four pack of it as well. So I’m still holding out hope that I’m going to find something I really like.

Ok, I'll start with my dirty little secret: the first beer I drank with regularity is Natural Ice, yes, Nattie's ice. I think the reasoning was something like, it's dirt cheap and super alcoholic. Well I've grown up a bit since then, and I actually like the taste of beer. Hence the idea for this site.
