Last two:

Furthermore Oscura (bottle).

Huisbrouwerij Sint Canarus Potteloereke (Brasserie V, bottle). Perhaps the most difficult to both pronounce and locate in Brasserie V's collection.

Next three:

Shiner Ruby Redbird (bottle).

Ale Asylum Hopalicious (bottle).

Monk's Cafe Flemish Sour Red Ale (bottle).

My last five:
Central Waters Glacial Trail IPA - on tap at Toffler's in New Glarus. It was a coin flip between this and Moon Man.

Lake Louie Mosquito Beach - bottle. A perfect end to a long Sunday of helping clear downed trees with my father.

Sand Creek Oscar's Double Chocolate Oatmeal Stout - bottle. This was delicious and pretty much a meal in its own right.

Guinness - on tap at Erin's Snug Pub.

Ale Asylum Bedlam Trappist IPA - on tap at Ale Asylum Taproom. I wish I got over here more often.

Did you get a metallic taste at the end of your bottle? The coppery, iron-y flavor at the end of each of my bottles was too strong to enjoy.

No, I didn't experience any odd aftertaste. I poured mine into a glass which may have mixed up any sediment, and I also drank it fairly quickly as I was pretty hot and thirsty.

I've purchased four or five six-packs so far and I don't think I've run into this before, although the only time I recall having one from a bottle was at a poker game a month back. I didn't notice any then either, but I was on a winning streak and that can disguise a lot of things.

I drank 5 Three Floyds Irish Reds on Saturday night. Does that count? That's some good stuff, and the hangover wasn't too bad all facts considered!

I've apparently gone on a hops kick over the past week.

Great Dane Texas Speedbump IPA - on tap at the Fitchburg location. It was nice enough to sit outdoors last night which was a welcome development.

Anchor Steam - bottle. I haven't had an Anchor Steam in a couple years but it's still as good as ever.

Mendocino White Hawk IPA - bottle. I took a flyer on a sixer and was not disappointed. It's on the maltier side for an IPA which is exactly how I like them.

New Glarus IIPA - my last bottle in the fridge, which I savored despite listening to Cubs blow yet another game in the ninth.

Sand Creek Frank's Wild Ryed Double IPA - I have a weakness for rye beers and this one might just be my favorite DIPA out there.

Lake Louie's Mosquito Beach - a random purchase that wound up being tasty. I really like most everything from LL that I've tried.

Capital Fest - with some wings at Quaker Steak & Lube. Tasty, but much like Bell's, I swear that I can taste some unifying flavor in everything that they make. Or maybe I'm just crazy.

Rogue St. Rogue Red Ale at the Mason Lounge - quite honestly, this beer made zero impression upon me. It wasn't disagreeable, I enjoyed it - but I walked away from it with no real impression. It was light, crisp and refreshing but I'm accustomed to beers with a bit more punch at this point.

North Coast Brewing's "Old Rasputin" at the Mason Lounge - this was admittedly a kneejerk reaction to the red ale, and it was precisely what I wanted. Rich, chocolatey, malty and delicious. My only regret is that I was pressed for time and couldn't properly linger over that pint and savor it.

Ale Asylum Bedlam - I love pretty much anything with citra hops in it, I've decided. I really want to find some Zombie Dust for that reason. I'm starting to wonder if maybe I should just buy a cask and the relevant hardware to dispense it. I haven't heard of anyone carrying it in town.

And of course, Arctic Panzer Wolf. I actually walked into Star Liquors today and bought everything that they had cold. Apologies if anyone came in after me looking for it.

I'm gonna be really sad when that beer isn't in season any longer.

Ale Asylum Trappist IPA - This appears to be my favorite of the summer. I can't seem to get enough of it and will buy it at bars whenever it is available.

O'so Night Train Porter. Not quite what I was expecting, but found it to be delicious and oddly refreshing while sitting outside on one of our recent stifling evenings. It was not as heavy as I expected.

New Belgium Ranger IPA. - Totally prefer the Ale Asylum Bedlam, but I enjoyed this beer as well. Just wished it has a little more oomph.

PBR. Was drunk, it was available, and even in my altered state I wished I was drinking something else.

New Glarus Two Women. Nothing exciting about it. In fact, I really don't remember much about it. Not saying it was bad, just seemed rather plain.

Lagunitas IPA (very tasty) and Lake Louie's Kiss the Lips IPA (my current fallback beer), both from the frig.

Kirin Iciban at Red Sushi (I usually drink ethnic beers at ethnic restaurants). This time the regular sized bottle, although I often ask for the bomber at Japanese restaurants. Didn't ask it they carry the big bottle. Btw, really enjoyed the sushi.

The cask conditioned EPA and a Wooden Ship ESB at Great Dane.
