New Beer Friday - Saint Patrick's Day Edition

Well, it's a Saint Patrick's Day - New Beer Friday. Some of you will stay home and leave today in the hands of the temporary Irish - others, will conquer the holiday in a more Viking like fashion. Just stay safe and avoid the green beer. Seriously, just don't. I managed to come across two new beers this week. Seek them out if you can.

Strap Tank Eat Side Ride - Not tried this one yet. Made with five pounds of fresh ginger and fourteen pounds of lemon grass. Your tongue and your gutty-works will thank you. 4.0% ABV @ Strap Tank

Proper Beckerman's Brew - The nose is malty and toasty with some earthy hops. The taste starts grainy, with some bready notes. Not overly malty or sweet, but definitely drying and bitter towards the end and into the aftertaste. The hops are on the floral/piney side and they finish off the palate with a drying bitterness. Nice, very drinkable lager.

Desert Edge Irish Red - This Red Ale is described as being malty, with low hop flavor and bitterness with a medium dry finish. 4.0% ABV @ Desert Edge

Desert Edge Wai-iti IPA -  This session IPA is brewed with Simcoe and Wai-iti hops. The aroma is mango and citrus. The flavor is the same with a light bready caramel flavor. 4.0% ABV @ Desert Edge
