Grab Bag o' Tasting Notes, Part 2

Moving right along...

Genesee sent me a box full of Dundee samples (not related to the Genesee beers in the previous post -- that was bought and paid Sam, for me), and one was a new one: Dundee Irish Red Lager. Reminds me of the Killian's, but with a sharper edge up front, and a sweeter, smoother finish. Again, this is a good non-hoppy beer, and there are people out there who like craft beer that isn't hopped to the nines. I'm betting this would be good with aged, firm cheeses, or beef stews. It's pretty good on its own.

Sigh...I was going to taste two new "white IPAs" from Saranac and Deschutes...but I've run out of time. Leaving for Chicago for WhiskyFest tomorrow, and I suspect I may have some fun stuff to write about. Talk to you later.

Little late for the review that would have been nice before Patricks day when someone would have tried it.Liked the way you slipped in Killians what a homer.

Not that I care, but...I got the Dundee samples on Monday. Got the Killian's samples a month ago. Have a great day.

"...when someone would have tried it."

So, you can only drink Irish and/or Irish-style beers on one day of the year? Man -- they must have a lotta empty pubs in Dublin from March 18th to March 16th.

What a mope.

I was really pleased with Saranac's White IPA. Looking forward to see what you think about this "new" IPA variant.
