April 2011 Top Five

I drank some nice beers in April. I will admit that this month wasn't as difficult to select a Top Five as was March, but there were still some awesome options and tough choices.

The famous Ed Roberts did two guest posts of beers from the Diamond Bear Brewing Company.  First, he explored Paradise Porter and the next day tackled Presidential IPA and Two Term DIPA. April also brought me a bottle of Home Brew Vanessa's Allez BrassĂ©! Tripel. Mmmm! Nom Nom Nom!

Finally, I guess I took the Sam Adams Longshot challenge, meaning I drank and reviewed each of the three styles. I didn't really like any of them and was totally unimpressed and surprised that these could possibly be the winners. If you care, Friar Hop Ale, Honey B's Lavender Ale, and Blackened Hops are their names.

Anyway, here are your beers for this month:

April 2011 Top Five

1. Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout

2. Sea Bass

3. Flossmoor Station Brewers Whim Series

4. Samuel Adams East-West Kolsch

5. Namaste

Honorable Mentions:

Joe's Premium American Pilsner
Papaya IPA

I've only had the Cappuccino Stout and the East-West Kolsch, and I liked them both. The Cappuccino Stout is just delicious.
