Dick’s Best Bitter

Posted by dugpark on August 4, 2008

My second Dick’s Brewery beer in a row… Dick’s Best Bitter comes to us from the top shelf where other Dick’s beers are pushing to the back, trying to hide from the inevitable.  This brew couldn’t escape and I am kind of glad to have it out of the fridge, to be honest…

While Dick’s has done pretty good on the blog so far, this one took them a step back.  I really wasn’t impressed with it and had a hard time finishing the bottle.  I was in the mood… I had just enjoyed the Dick’s Pale Ale and was ready for another of their fine offerings when this one came along.  What I don’t read on their website is how sweet this is.  It is uncannily sweet, which throws me off.  I want it hoppy and bitter, damn it, like a good ESB should be.  I don’t want it offset.  Keep it blunt, please…

Good amber color, medium head, hoppy nose, light body, and super-sweet finish.  The last of which keeps this from making it to my fridge again. 

Sometimes you have to take one step back to move two steps forward the saying says… lets see if that is the case for Dick’s. :)

Dick’s Mountain Amber Ale

Posted by dugpark on July 4, 2008

Had one hell of a pre July 4th weekend impromptu party last night.  Ended up trying 4 or 5 new beers and now have to catch up… so here goes with the short and sweet version of Dick’s Mountain Amber Ale.

Overall this was a very strong and very good amber ale.  Maybe one of the hoppiest ambers I have had in a while, this beer tasted like a darker, maltier IPA.  Very tasty with the sphaghetti we had last night.  Deep amber color with a good sized head and a very potent nose.  Very tasty indeed.
