Awesome Clubs Beer of the Month Club February 2012

Posted in Food and Drinks on February 27th, 2012

For Christmas this year, Adam’s parents gave us a three month subscription to Awesome Clubs Beer of the Month Club. You can read my review of January’s selections here.

This month featured selections from Mendocino Brewing Company
in California and Lancaster Brewing Company in

White Hawk IPA by Mendocino Brewing Company

Although I’m not a fan of IPA’s I am not one to let beer go to waste. This beer tasted fresh and crisp, and fairly light. It was definitely hoppy but I was able to enjoy it with a meal.

Black Hawk Select Stout by Mendocino Brewing Company

This beer has a rich dark color. It was medium bodied, and has a pleasant mouthfeel. Black Hawk is nicely carbonated black and tastes of black coffee with a hint of chocolate. What I liked most about this stout is that it’s drinkable. You can sip and savor it but you don’t have to. It’s not too strong to drink as you would a lighter beer.

Amish Four Grain Pale Ale by Lancaster Brewing Company

This beer poured with a nice head and pleasant amber color. It smelled fruity to me. It’s medium bodied with a rum rasin taste, and while it’s an American Pale Ale, I did not notice a particularly hoppy taste. There were hops, but it wasn’t the defining characteristic of the beer.

Amish Milk Stout by Lancaster Brewing Company

This beer has a very dark color. It smelled of coffee and caramel. It was more carbonated than the Black Hawk, but not too much. I tasted dark coffee and caramel, with a hint of bitterness and hops.

    how many bottles do they give you every month total?

  2. MissCherryPi Says:

    12 bottles total.

    2 breweries, 2 kinds of beer from each brewery, so 4 different beers, and 3 bottles of each beer.

  3. Ceetar Says:

    well balanced drinkable stouts are the best.

  4. Sheri Says:

    OMG they have a coffee club too….

  5. MissCherryPi Says:

    Ceetar – You mean you don’t want an Imperial Stout that tastes like rocket fuel?

    Sheri – Is that a hint? 😀
