Red Brick Brewing – Wee Heavy


It looks like Red Brick Brewing already took down the website for this beer.  All I can say is we were very nervous about this after our last experience with a Wee Heavy.


Vince:  It smells good.

Alec:  It doesn’t smell like throw-up.

Vince:  No, it kinda smells like the Chimay we had.

Alec:  It just smells like a really thick ale.


Alec:  I wish it had more head, nice color though.  It’s really thick and dark.

Vince:  Yeah it’s like a Chimay mixed with a stout.

Alec:  There’s something just hanging around in the beer, I think it’s the yeast.  Wow.

Vince:  That’s really intense.

Alec:  You can see chunks.


Alec:  Not anywhere near as bad as that other one.

Vince:  It’s good.

Alec:  I don’t know that I would normally get it but…it’s definitely got a different taste to it.

Vince:  It’s really heavy.

Alec:  Yeah but I’m not gagging as soon as I let it hit my palate.

Vince:  It kinda has a coffee-like taste to it.


Alec:  It’s growing on me; the more I drink, the more I like it.

Vince:  This is a beer you would drink with some friends, and just sip on it.  I feel like I’ve already drank the whole thing.  At this point he was about 1/3 through the glass.

Alec:  Yeah, this is not your “I’m going to go out and drink a lot of beers” beer.  But I like it.

Vince:  I do too, way better than the Sam Adams crap we had.

Alec:  I’m really liking it; I’m almost done already.

Final Thoughts

Alec:  It’s amazing.

Josh:  It was incredible!  I’ve never had a better beer in my life.

Vince:  It was a step up over Sam Adams.

Josh:  Just a step?

Vince:  It was good, tastes like Chimay.

Leinenkugel’s – Canoe Paddler


From the website:

In 1906, the Kolsch-style beer originated from the Cologne region of Germany as a crisp and light beer to combat the summer heat. Leinenkugel’s® Canoe Paddler™ is our take on the Kolsch-style beer that we tweaked with a touch of rye. Our spring and summer seasonal has subtle malt flavors, a clean finish and adventurous quality.


Still eating some pizza with this one.


Vince:  Smells like Natty Light.  Recognize that smell, Stevo?

Alec:  Smells like water.

Vince:  It’s got that cheap bar-beer smell to it.  After you have a really crazy party, and there’s a bunch of solo cups laying around; this is what you smell the next day.  Smells like a large pitcher of cheap beer.


Alec:  Head didn’t last very long.


Stevo:  Definitely has that wet paper towel, or cardboard flavor.  PBR tastes better than this.

Alec:  You think so?

Vince:  Yeah this is probably … no.  This is like drinking Natty Light.

Stevo:  I think Natty Light actually has a better flavor.  Natty Light tastes like carbonated water.  This tastes like carbonated water plus, a dead rat.

Vince:  This isn’t good at all.

Alec:  I think you’re going a little overboard.

Stevo:  It’s a little bad.

Alec:  It’s not great.

Vince:  This reminds me of my days of beer pong and “Let’s buy the cheapest thing we can find.”

Stevo:  I feel like it’s overly carbonated to make up for the lack of taste.  Very dull.

Alec:  It’s good with the pizza with jalapeños.  It washes away the burn for just a second.  Then it comes back just a little bit.

Vince:  What’s that taste…?

Stevo:  Dirty tap.  This is what the vendors give the bars.  “This is what your beer could taste like if you don’t allow us to clean your taps.”  It kind of has a little bit of a blood taste…afterwards.

Alec:  Are you sure you’re not dying?

Stevo:  I think I’m actually bleeding because of this.


Vince:  You could pound 8 of these.  Not because of the flavor though.  You could pound 8 of these because you have to.

Alec:  You could probably get pounded after you’ve had 8 of these.

Stevo:  Well, it works both ways.

Vince:  This isn’t good.  If it were this and Miller Light on tap, I’d have to go Miller Light.

Alec:  Those are harsh words, my friend.

Stevo:  I would go with that too.

Vince:  MGD 64 over this.  I could think of a plethora of beers over this one.  This is probably my least favorite beer.

Stevo:  I would say some sort of cider would be below this.  I would rather have this than a cider.

Vince:  In terms of beer, the Wee Heavy is probably neck and neck with this.

Alec:  No the Wee Heavy makes you want to vomit; this you can drink, it’s just boring.

Stevo:  This is all the downsides of light beer without any of the good part.

Alec:  This would be what you would serve before Budweiser if you wanted to tell people you were serving good beer.  Then you start serving the Budweiser and no one can tell the difference.

Stevo:  No you serve this after; the Budweiser is better.

Vince:  This is like “I’ll have a beer, I don’t want Budweiser, you got anything better?” “Well I’ve got Canoe Paddle too” “Oh that sounds nice.”

Stevo:  I’ll have the Budweiser.

Vince:  I’m not enjoying this at all.  Is that thunder?

Stevo:  The beer gods are angry.

Final Thoughts

Vince:  I don’t recommend this at all.  Natty Light and pondwater.

Stevo:  Natty Light and three-day-old Natty Light from outside.

Alec:  This is a great beer if you’re eating spicy food, and you don’t really care about the flavor of the beer.

Stevo:  And they don’t have water.  I just got a whiff of cigarette butt.  Doesn’t it smell like someone dunked their cigarette in here to put it out?

Vince:  This tastes like dirty casino.  This is terrible beer.  This is probably what they scoop out of the canoe at the end of the journey.

Alec:  Eat a jalapeño and try it.

Stevo:  Ok I chewed the jalapeño on every side of my mouth.  It actually tastes like how it smells now.  You don’t actually taste the… I would agree with what you said about rinsing away the hotness and bringing it back gently.

Vince:  This is like 8 rounds of beer pong, and you just keep pouring more beer into the same cups.

Stevo:  Yeah and everyone’s been drinking out of them, that’s what this tastes like.

Alec:  It tastes like herpes.

Vince:  Yeah, the ball has rolled on the floor and picked up dog hair.

Alec:  It tastes like herpes and dog hair.

Stevo:  I’m sweating right now from the beer.  My body’s shutting down.

Vince:  His body’s rejecting it.

Vince:  This beer’s what college dreams are made of.

Stevo:  College mistakes.

Vince:  This is the amateur’s craft beer.  When you want to tell people “Oh man, I’m off of Natty Light now, but I’m drinking this Paddle Creek crap.”

Stevo:  This is your frat guy transition beer.

Vince:  Out of 5, I’m gonna go 1.  ‘Cause I don’t want to give it a 0.

Stevo:  I’d go with a…umm…a…umm…1.  For lack of a lower choice.

Alec:  I could agree with a 1.  Not because I hate it but because…

Stevo:  Life’s too short to waste it on this beer.

Vince:  How can they be proud of this?


Widmer Brothers – Nelson Imperial IPA


From the website:

Take your taste buds on a journey to the far side of the world. New Zealand’s legendary Nelson Sauvin hop gives us a powerful hoppy character, but none of the heaviness you sometimes find in Imperial IPAs. The result is a big brew with a sweet, malty character that perfectly balances the intense hop aroma and flavor.


We ordered some pizzas to have with these beers.  One just had cheese and Alfredo sauce, the other had veggies and jalapeños on it.  The heat from the jalapeños really added to the flavor of the beer.


Alec:  How does it smell?

Vince:  Hoppy.

Alec:  Yeah it smells like straight hops.

Vince:  Yeah, I just smell hops, very good though.


Vince:  It’s got a great color too.

Alec:  I like how it keeps bubbling the entire time you’re drinking it.


Vince: Tastes like Hopsecutioner, except lighter.  It’s citrusy.

Stevo:  It pairs really well with the pizza.

Vince:  This is a really enjoyable beer.  This would be a great go-to.

Alec:  It goes great with the peppers on the pizza too.

Stevo:  I feel like it’s just over the line, when it comes to IPAs.

Alec:  Just a little hoppy.

Stevo:  Yeah, and it’s got really nice carbonation.

Vince:  You got stuffed crust?  Hell yeah!  You’re the best dad ever.

Vince:  I could drink a couple of these, it doesn’t leave that lingering taste like Hopsecutioner does.

Stevo:  It’s very light on the palate.

Alec:  I like this, it’s probably one of the better IPAs to me.  It’s not trying to hit you in the face with hops; you know those beers, it’s like you got hit in the back of the head, there so much hops.

Vince:  Yeah, it’s like “How hoppy can we make it?”

Alec:  It’s like a milder Dogfish Head IPA.

Vince:  Or Sierra Nevada.

Stevo:  If Sierra Nevada, Yuengling, and Bud Light came together, this would be their child.

Vince:  That’s a great child.

Stevo:  Delicious love child.


Vince:  Great beer, good choice.  We picked it because it was in a four pack.  Well, that and we were looking for an IPA.

Vince:  It upsets me, this company definitely has great beer, but I’ve never heard of them before.

Final Thoughts

Alec: I like it a lot.

Vince:  I could drink more of these.

Stevo:  It’s good.  It’s a good beer to have with dinner.

Vince:  It would be a great go-to beer like I said.  If I were going out of 5 I’d give it 4 out of 5.

Stevo:  Sounds about right, 3.7 out of 5.

Alec:  I’d say 4 out of 5.  It’s not my favorite beer in the world but it’s definitely up there in the top.

Vince:  One thing that goes into that is that it’s not freezing cold, and it still holds up.

Stevo:  It would be a good introduction beer, for someone new to IPAs.

Vince/Alec:  Yeah!  Perfect.

Alec:  Here’s a little more hoppiness than you’re used to, now try Hopsecutioner.

Stevo:  It’s also not the most mild I’ve had.

Alec:  Yeah you won’t die from all the hops in it, but you’re going to notice it.

Stevo:  It’s zesty.

Chimay – Grande Reserve

Note:  The recording of this review got a little chopped up, so apologies in advance for how disjointed it is.


From the website:

The Chimay Blue Cap, “baptized’
“Grande Reserve” in 750 ml bottles is a dark Trappist beer with a powerful aroma, the complex flavour of which improves across the years. It was first brewed as a Christmas beer, explaining the presence of a “vintage”.

This authentic Belgian beer, whose tinge of fresh yeast is associated with a light rosy flowery touch, is particularly pleasant. Its aroma, perceived as one enjoys it, only accents the delightful sensations revealed by the odour, all revealing a light but agreeable caramelized note.


Donnie:  What color is that?  Kinda red?

Alec:  It’s cloudy.

Josh:  I like that it’s cloudy.


Ian: It smells like sangria.

Donnie:  It really does smell like a wine.

Ian:  It doesn’t smell like it’s going to taste good.

Vince:  It’s not good.

Josh:  Oh, it smells so nice!


Vince:  Not good, not good at all.

Ian:  This has got to be the worst one I’ve ever tasted.

Josh:  You don’t like it?

Ian:  Have you tried it?

Josh:  Yeah we had it the other night.

Ian:  And you were….why?

Donnie:  I really like it.

Ian:  You like everything.

Vince:  This is way too sweet.

Ian:  This is something my mom would drink.  It’s really fruity.

Vince:  It’s so fruity and sweet it’s disgusting.

Alec:  Super sweet.

Donnie:  It tastes like someone spilled a Merlot into my Yuengling.

Ana:  Tastes like molasses.

Ian:  It has a sweet tendency to it, but also a bite.

Donnie:  Kinda like Elvis Presley.

Ana:  Like box wine mixed with Sierra Nevada.

Donnie:  It’s got a great aftertaste.


Vince:  Some of it came out of my nose.  I need some more of that milk stout, to get rid of all this butt taste.  I don’t like this at all.

Later after some deep soul searching…

Vince:  I would drink two of these, I will agree on that.

Vince:  From Scourmont Abbey, and seasoned with monk piss.

Ian:  It has a great aftertaste.

Vince:  We should drink this in between beers.

Final Thoughts

Alec:  This is why monks are so peaceful.

Ana:  Yeah, they’re buzzed constantly.

Ian:  My mouth feels amazing.

Vince:  If you were three or four beers in, this would probably be pretty good.

Ian:  Because you could just down it.  It’d be dangerous.

Shock Top – End of the World Midnight Wheat


From the website:

Shock Top End of the World Midnight Wheat is an unfiltered wheat ale brewed with midnight wheat, chocolate malt, chilies and other spices. This limited edition 6% ABV ale has a dark, rich color and delivers an indulgent flavor and sessionability, making it the perfect beer to celebrate the end of the world.


We were snacking on orange scones while drinking this one.  Why?  Ana took the whole day off knowing that she was coming over to slave in the kitchen after forcing her mother into indentured servitude to make some and surprised us.


Everyone was afraid the world was going to end before they could taste it so we never really got to look at it.  The color was nice, but the head disappeared almost immediately, as you can see in the image.


Vince:  Smells pretty good.

Ana:  Smells like a fruity Yuengling.

Ian:  Yep, smells like Yuengling.


Vince:  Tastes a little like pizza.

Donnie:  It tastes like it would be really good with pizza.

Alec:  Does anyone taste the chilies?

Ana:  No, I’m waiting for it, not getting any.

Vince:  I think I can taste it, that’s why I think it tastes like pizza a little bit.

Donnie:  It’s normal.

Ian:  It’s a good beer, I’d order it.

Donnie:  I wouldn’t order it, if it was given to me I’d drink it.

Alec:  You won’t order it because the world is going to end.

Ana:  Well yeah, if the world ends we’re only going to have this one.

Ian:  It’s buttery.

Donnie:  No, it’s not.

Josh:  It’s like margarine.

Vince:  It’s kind of heavy.

Donnie:  No, it’s not.

Vince:  Just kidding guys, it’s not heavy.

Alec:  I wish the chili taste was more prominent.

Ian:  I agree.

Donnie:  There’s a chili taste in here?

Ana:  There’s supposed to be.


Donnie:  I would rather have Yuengling.

Josh:  I’m really not liking this.

Donnie:  It’s fine, it’s not great.

Vince:  I don’t enjoy this.

Ana:  Not bad, but utterly unmemorable.

Alec:  I’m not unhappy, but I’m underwhelmed.

Donnie:  It’s a beer.

Ian:  Just a drinkable beer.

Ana:  Damned with faint praise.

Ian:  It’s like Bud Light, Bud Light with chocolate in it.

Josh:  I’d rather have a Bud Light.

Alec:  I’m gonna disagree with that one.

Final Thoughts

After five minutes of talk about cat buttholes…

Donnie:  It’s good, it’s fine, whatever.

Vince:  I don’t care if I never see this beer again.

Ian:  I don’t think it’s that bad, I think it’d be better on draft, pizza would be good with it.

Vince:  It’d be great on draft if it were like $1.95.

Ian:  It’s Bud Light, but brown.

Alec:  With weird flavors mixed into it, but just barely.

Josh:  It’s terrible.

Alec:  I could take it or leave it.

Josh:  I’m completely underwhelmed.

Left Hand Brewing – Milk Stout


From the website:

Milk sugar in your stout is like cream in your coffee. Dark and delicious, America’s great milk stout will change your perception about what a stout can be. Preconceived notions are the blinders on the road to enlightenment. Udderly delightful.


No food, but we had two other beers earlier in the night.


Ian: That head, look at it, it’s like Coke!

Josh: It is really weird-looking.

Vince: It looks just like a glass of Coke.

Ian: Look at that head!

Josh: I know I saw it.

Ian: You don’t understand!

Alec: It looks like espresso.


Ian: It smells good.

Josh: This smells incredible.

Ian: Have you ever had the Bold City coffee stout? That tastes amazing, and this, this smells better than that.

Alec: It smells like stale Guinness.

Josh: This is the first beer we’ve done, where I just want to keep smelling it.


Vince: This has a great taste to it.

Alec: It’s good.

Vince: This is probably one of my favorite stouts, right next to Yeti.

Donnie: I’ve never had Yeti, but this is really good.

Josh: It’s strange, it tastes so much like coffee.

Ian: This tastes great, this is great beer. I would order it over Guinness.

Alec: I would not.

Donnie: This would be incredible to drink over breakfast, not even kidding.


Josh: This is not as heavy as Guinness.

Vince: For people that don’t like stouts, this would be great. This doesn’t have that really strong bite to it.

Ian: I’d have another one after this.

Vince: Where does this beer take you? Where can you see yourself drinking this beer?

Ian: I see this like an afternoon beer, with a lunch.

Josh: This is a beer I could have in the morning.

Donnie: This is what I want tomorrow when I wake up, with steak and eggs.

Final Thoughts

Ian: It smells great, the color’s great.

Donnie: I would give this a 4.5.

Josh: Thank you!

Alec: I’d go 4, but that’s just because I like stouts.

Donnie: Are you not impressed only because you love Guinness so much?

Alec: No, I wouldn’t say that Guinness is a 5.

Vince: Would you say that Guinness is the best stout you’ve ever had?

Alec: I dunno about that either.

After they finished grilling Alec about his love affair with Guinness…

Vince: I can imagine having this on a cold winter night.

Ian: Is this better than a Guinness? I don’t know, but if they were next to each other, I would order this, because I could always get Guinness.

Josh: This has a more interesting taste.

Vince: This is enjoyable.

Donnie: If any beer needs to adorn a gold medal, it’s this beer.

Vince: 4.5

Donnie: 4.5

Ian: 4.5. I don’t know what’s going to get a 5, but this is as close as it’s going to get so far.

Josh: I’m going to say 4, because I don’t want Donnie to have to make half of whatever we decide on [for ratings].

Alec: I’m going with 4.

Vince: If nothing becomes 5, this will become my 5.

Donnie: Yeah.

Josh: Right now this leads the category in stout for me, period.

Donnie: Probably the best thing I could say is I’m sad I don’t have any more.

Josh: This is better beer.

We then decided to evenly split the last bottle because we all wanted more.

Rogue – Dead Guy Ale


From the website:

In the style of a German Maibock, using our proprietary Pacman ale yeast. Deep honey in color with a malty aroma and a rich hearty flavor.


No food, but Donnie was smoking.


Vince:  It’s got a good color.  Nice dark amber color.

Ian:  The color’s great.


Vince:  It’s got a hint of unicorn tears.

Ian:  I think it smells great.

Donnie:  I don’t know if the smell’s important, but it does smell good.

Josh:  Smell is what, 60 to 70 percent of taste?

Alec:  I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Vince:  It’s good, it’s for sure good.  It’s got a great smell.

Ian:  It does, and it’s different from the others.


Alec:  This reminds me of the Toasted Lager, except the flavor hits you in the front, instead of the back.

Ian:  I’m gonna agree with that, it does.

Donnie:  I really like this.

Ian:  It’s good.

Donnie:  Cane sugar, that would be the sweetness that I taste.

Josh:  That’s caramel to me.

Vince:  It’s fruity.


Alec:  I don’t have a lot to say about this beer.

Ian:  I don’t either, I think it’s just a very drinkable beer.

Alec:  Yeah.

Ian:  I don’t think this is a beer that you order three in a row of.

Vince:  This is not my first round draft pick.  This is about a 3.5 for me.

Ian:  I think it’s a great beer.  It’s not a three in a row beer, it’s your first beer.  Now you’re buzzed and you order something else, not as strong.

Alec:  The thing I like about this beer is that it’s reliable.

Vince:  I dunno, it’s not my cup of tea, it’s good it’s just not something I would…

Alec:  It’s reliable.

Vince:  It’s forgettable.

Donnie:  I don’t think so.

Ian:  That’s harsh.

Donnie:  I would order this, if I saw this on a menu, I would order this.

Josh:  You would not order this, because it’s expensive.

Donnie:  Is it?

Final Thoughts

Vince:  Wait, I just took a good sip of this beer and…I like it.  I’ll give this beer a 4 now.

Donnie:  I’ll give this beer a 5.  It’s crisp, it has a lot of flavor, it’s bold.

Vince:  But it’s not overly bold.

Donnie:  It’s not heavy.

Alec:  And the flavor doesn’t hit you after you’ve swallowed it.

Donnie:  The flavor, from once it enters your orifice, until you swallow it is the same flavor.

Alec:  If you want to buy a beer, is this a good one to buy?  Yes, this is a good one to buy.

Ian:  It smells great, the color is really good, it’s not a multiple drink beer, but it’s a beer you sip, and it’s great.  It’s not a party beer.  I would give it a 4.  Is it the best beer?  No, but it’s a 4.

Blue Point – Toasted Lager


From the website:

Blue Point Brewing’s award-winning Toasted Lager is our flagship product. Copper in color this brew is made from six different malts including: English Pale, Crystal, Munich, Carapils, Wheat and Belgian Caravienna. Toasted Lager displays a balanced flavor of malt and hop which makes for easy drinking. Special lager yeast is used to produce that long lasting, smooth finish. The “toasted” part of the name refers to our direct-fire brew kettle’s hot flames that impart a toasted flavor to our most popular microbrew.


No food tonight, we keep spending all our money on beer.


Alec:  Generic beer.

Vince:  Pretty gold.  Good-looking beer, head went away very quickly.


Alec: Smells like every other beer.


Alec:  Good, not exciting.

Ian:  I think it’s warm.

Vince:  It is warm.

Alec:  It doesn’t taste cold, but it doesn’t feel warm.

Vince:  It tastes very generic.

Josh:  It was refrigerated at Total Wine, and again here.

Donnie:  It tastes better than PBR, it’s very good.

Vince:  It’s not very hoppy.

Ian:  It has this aftertaste…bite.

Vince:  I don’t like the aftertaste.

Donnie:  I do!

Ian:  Thank God you’re not doing the review!  It tastes terrible, I drink it and think, “This is disgusting.”

Vince:  I don’t want to drink any of this.

Ian:  The aftertaste is terrible.  Reading the packaging.  Complex flavors, but I don’t know what’s going on when I drink it.

Alec:  It tastes different.

Donnie:  I’d say it was flavorful.

Ian:  But what does it taste like?

Donnie: …..complex flavors.

Josh:  It tastes like terrible white bread.

Ian:  It’s like Wonder Bread.

Josh:  Actually it’s like Walmart bread.

Alec:  It’s not terrible.

Vince:  It has a cheap beer taste to it.


Donnie:  I wouldn’t pay more than three dollars for it in a restaurant, but it’s a good beer.

Alec:  I think it’s a fine beer, but I wouldn’t order another glass after the first one.

Ian:  I sip it, and it tastes like water, then I swallow and it’s like…acid.  It’s not a good beer.

Vince:  I wouldn’t order this again, I would be offended if someone bought this for me.

Ian:  Is it drinkable? NO!

Donnie:  I’m not saying I like it, but I don’t think it’s a bad beer.  I think it’s drinkable.

Ian:  You drink it, you don’t taste it, then you swallow, then it hits you, and it’s bad.

Josh:  I wouldn’t order this over Yuengling.

Donnie:  I would.

Ian:  You would order this over Yuengling?!  This is probably one of the worst beers I’ve ever had in my life.

Vince:  It’s not very drinkable.

Donnie:  I obviously found it very drinkable, I’d have more.

Final Thoughts

Alec:  It was ok.

Donnie:  I think it’s fine, that’s the best way to describe it.

Ian:  I’d rate this as one you should never try.

Alec:  It’s fine, nothing crazy to write home about, but I could drink it.

Donnie:  I’m with you.

Josh:  I’d say Ian’s going to give it a one, no one should ever drink it.  I’d give it a two, that it’s not going to kill you.

Alec:  Out of five I’d say three.

Vince:  I feel like this is a really ok rental car, it’s not a Kia, but it’s also not a Cadillac.

Alec:  This would probably be better with food, to get rid of the aftertaste.

Ian:  That might be true.

Donnie:  So let’s order a pizza and we’ll drink more.

Samuel Adams – Wee Heavy


From the website:

Samuel Adams Wee Heavy was inspired by both traditional Scotch ales and Scotch whiskies, for a combination of deep roasted flavor and earthy smoke character. Traditional Scottish ales vary in intensity with the strong ales known as Scotch Ale or “Wee Heavy”. To create our own version of the style we added peat smoked malt to bring the unique flavor of Scotland to this complex and satisfying brew.


If we tried to eat anything while we drank this, we would throw up.


Vince: Looks like diesel fuel, it’s so thick. Like pee with blood in it.


Vince: It’s like the liquor of beers. It smells like scotch.

Alec: It smells like I wanna throw up.

Josh: I’m smelling it, and I don’t want to taste it.

Vince: It’s like I just inhaled a forest fire. Ever smell a gas leak?


Alec: Not as bad as I remember.

Vince: Still pretty bad. I feel like it would be better hot, than it is cold.

Josh: It’s like soy sauce.

Vince: It’s that bitter, it’s as bitter as soy sauce. And it doesn’t go away.

Josh: It’s soy sauce with dirt.


Alec: I couldn’t imagine drinking this while eating anything.

Vince: Who in their right mind could possibly enjoy this?

Alec: Every time I take a sip of this it makes the back of my throat clench up, like it’s trying to reject any more from entering.

Final Thoughts

Alec: Is this beer?

Alec: It’s like drinking T-Gel shampoo.

Vince: No it’s more like Draino. Tequila makes me want to vomit, this makes me want to vomit a little bit more than that.

Josh: I just chugged it, I think it’s honestly better if you chug it.

Alec: If Scottish people drink this crap it must’ve been done on a dare.

Josh: This is what you give to your kids to punish them for drinking alcohol when they’re fourteen.

Vince: Liquor and beer had a baby, and it’s Satan.

Alec: I wanna throw up right now.

Josh: That beer was so bad that there was one bottle of it left for two weeks.

Alec: In an Irishman’s house.

Vince: That makes me feel like “21st birthday just took five shots” beer.


We think, and really hope, that we got a bad batch of Wee Heavy. As you can see in our picture the beer is very flat immediately after it was poured. In other pictures online the beer always has a nice head. We have talked about trying this beer again but no one wants to pay for it since it may end up the same.

Update:  Sam Adams has issued us a refund.  We are going to try another brand of Wee Heavy first then maybe revisit this one.

Wexford Irish Style Cream Ale


From Total Wine:

This authentic Irish Ale dates back to 1810 from Co. Wexford. Brewed to an original family recipe using Irish malt and hops, Wexford has a smooth mellow creaminess from the widget in the can.


No food left by this point.


Vince: The most beautiful beer I’ve ever seen.

Josh: Looks amazing.

Alec: When I first poured it I was worried that it was all head, but it quickly settled down and looked perfect. It looked like a beer straight out of a publicity shot.


Alec: Butter.

Josh: Beautiful smell.

Alec: It smells like head but I don’t want to say that.


Alec: It’s like cream soda beer.

Vince: In a blind test I’d say this was Guinness but…better. A vanilla taste with a little bit of a smokey aftertaste. Hobbits would drink this. Or Paula Deen, this is Paula Deen’s beer!

Josh: Tastes fantastic.


Alec: I would probably throw up if I drank more than two of these, just from how dense it is. I feel like it was invented for Irish people who don’t like Guinness.

Vince: Smooth.

Final Thoughts

Alec: I still have half a glass left. I like it, it’s drinkable. Not something you could pound five in a row, but I would drink it again.

Josh: I feel like if I went out and this was on the menu, it would take me so long to decide if I wanted to drink this I would just order something else instead.

Alec: You could order this beer and keep nursing it for over 30 minutes and it would still look like a fresh pour.

Vince: One of the most good looking beers I’ve seen. Very drinkable, I could drink one or two of these, but I’d probably need to be carted home.

Alec: And not because you were drunk.

Josh: Because you were bloated.

Alec: Remember that scene in Willy Wonka where they’re in the room with the bubbles…

Sometime later…

Vince: Very easy to drink. It’s like when I go to Kilwin’s and get a Cake Batter Milkshake.

Alec: A Cake Batter Milkshake, fatty?
