No sooner did that end than Samuel Adams released their Latitude 48 Deconstructed mixed 12 pack, containing six different pairs of beers. Five pairs represented a single hop used in the making of the final product, which was also included. I drank the first two in May, Simcoe and East Kent Goldings, and since I drank them all by now, let me suggest passing them by, unless you really just want to learn what profile each hop variety offers. They aren't very appealing alone, as a generalization.
Chalie from The Mug of Saint Arnold did a guest post of Avery's Maharaja, and I did the same for his blog. In between all of those, I tackled a bunch of others including (popular among beer snobs) Shock Top Raspberry Wheat, Beach Bum Blonde Ale and Bohemia Clásica.
But in the end, these were your winners, May's Top Five.
