Beering in Mind YouTube Channel Beer Review #244 -- Nagahama Lemon Hop IPA



Nagahama Lemon Hop IPA is the brewery's latest limited release. It's really more of a malty English-style IPA than a citrusy one.

Beering in Mind YouTube Channel Beer Review #243 -- Suntory The Premium Malt’s Jozoka No Okurimono 2019 Winter Limited


Suntory The Premium Malt’s Jozoka No Okurimono 2019 Winter Limited... whew! A very long name for a beer that is not so long on quality. Being a Premium Malt's beer (please don't ask me about the misplaced apostrophe), it is certainly not bad, but just a bit short on flavor for a beer that is supposedly the maker's "gift" for the winter season. 

Enough already. Click HERE for my YouTube review.

Beering in Mind YouTube Channel Beer Review #216 Liefmans Fruitesse On The Rocks



Liefmans Fruitesse On The Rocks is a fruit beer that takes the fruit too seriously and leaves the beer behind. "On The Rocks," .... perhaps a marketing technique to make the beer appeal to a wider group of drinkers. 

Well, enough already,... Click HERE for my YouTube review.
