1660. Heretic Caramel Moo-chiato

OH!  WOW!  This is now one of Caitlin's favorite beers!
And I really enjoy it too.  The creamy milky vanilla flavor is really good and enjoyable.
The beer also goes down really light and smooth, and leaves that wonderful flavor behind.
Not something for outside sitting and drinking, but it's a great beer for sitting inside, at the end of the night.

1659. WarPigs Bouffant Jellyfish

I've always wanted to like WarPigs.  I want to support 3 Floyds and Mikkeller.  It's just sad that most of their beers are so dry and bitter, or mega-hoppy.  Even their golden ale is DRY.  Well, not anymore.  Now, I can come out and say that I LOVE one of their beers.  This sour is guava-fruity and a really nice hit of sour.  More on the tart side, and it's nice.  I am really enjoying multiples of this beer tonight.

1658. Sun King Watermelon Sunlight

Newest Variant of Sunlight. 
It’s okay.  
Watermelon aroma is present when I go to drink, watermelon flavor is mild in the beer.  Sadly, this version of Sunlight is not as good as the Lemon Shandy or Orange Vanilla variants. It’s probably fourth behind the Tropical, because it has light coconut flavor to it.  

But, it’s fine.  It’s drinkable and refreshing.  I don’t mind it at all, and have no problems drinking it.

Beer #74 REVISITED: Kronenbourg 1664

Tonight, we dined at the Be Our Guest restaurant in The Magic Kingdom.
There were more appealing beers on the menu, however, since it was French-themed, I sucked it up and drank a French biere.  This also allowed me to Revisit Beer #74 and provide a picture to go with it.

This beer.  It's considered a lager, but it's light like a Miller Lite.  So, it was easy to drink and I enjoyed many of them throughout the meal.   Nothing special, considering it's French.  But it was fine for tonight.

1657. Schöfferhofer Grapefruit Hefeweizen

Today we made it to Epcot.
I found Germany, and I found a beer vendor. 
This sounded good, and I didn't think I remembered ever drinking it before.  Checked the website later, and it wasn't there - so I'm adding it now!

This was the perfect beer for the 95-degree day.
It was so hot, but this light beer went down really refreshingly, and the grapefruit flavor was nice and enjoyable.  It hit the spot for today - and I'm happy I upgraded to the plastic beer mug to have as a souvenir.

1656. Riptide Olde Naples Blonde

The last Florida beer I was able to get my hands on, and this one was really good.
It was light and crisp, and easy to drink.  It was a blonde that tasted like a blonde.
I took a few of these to the beach a few days later, and they were very tasty in the hot sun.

1655. Hofbrauhaus 3.3 Session Lager

I didn't even know this exsisted.
I found it at the liquor store here in Florida, and decided I wanted it, because I was pretty sure I was going to enjoy it.  Figures, I got to Florida looking for beer, and I find something from Germany that I want.

I don't know if we are just in a bad part of Florida, but none of the liquor stores have many local beer options.

So, I'm drinking German Lager, and loving it.
SIDE NOTE:  Tropical Storm Elsa comes through Marco Island the following day, so I drink a lot of these light lagers while watching the dark skies, wind, thunder, lightening, and the Italy/Spain EURO2020 Semi Final.  

1654. Funky Buddha Floridian Hefeweizen

This Funky Buddha Floridian is so far the best of my three Florida beers so far.
It's not bad to drink on the beach, where I took a few of them with us today.
I'm starting this think Floridians don't know how to properly label their beers.  Because this one is a lot lighter than a normal Hefe should be, and it's more refreshing than the citrus ale should have been.  Things seem a little different down here in Florida...

1653. Islamorada Ale

Islamorada Ale claims to be a citrus ale, but I don't get any light or fruity citrus flavors from this beer.
It's heavy and drinks thick.  It's neither light nor refreshing, like I expected from a citrus ale.  It's not enjoyable to sit outside and drink them - like I was expecting.  I've gone ZERO-for-two, so far on new beers this trip...

1652. Naples Beach IPA

I've been in Florida for about two hours now, we finally stopped for lunch - and the ONLY Florida local beer on the menu is an IPA.  I digress, and I still ordered it.  And it's a full-hardcore-IPA.  It's major dry and super bitter, and it's tough to go down.  Luckily, I chased it with a Stella.

1651. Lazy Magnolia Southern Pecan

This was a gift from my sister-in-law Mallory as a part of my birthday present.
Today, I've been trying to clean out my beer fridge before I leave for vacation, and I am finally getting around to this beer.

I don't get to try many brown ales.  It's one of my favorite styles, but doesn't seem to get made very often.
This one is LOADED with Pecan flavor.  I just kinda like pecans, so it doesn't really improve the beer for me.  It's pretty easy to drink, kind of lighter than most brown ales, and like I said - powerful pecan flavor.  It was a good beer to drink, but nothing I really need to drink again.

1650. Rochester Mills Juice Bigalow Hop Gigolo

This was a gift from my buddy Jae.  A few weeks back, we all played poker at our friend Snow's house, and we did kind of a beer swap.  Everyone brought a bunch of different things, and we just kind of shared them around.  I ended up bringing this one home.

I will give it credit that's a juicy beer.  But, it still isn't something I enjoy.  It's fairly dry and bitter, and has an aftertaste that I'm not a fan of.  It was tough to drink.
