    never tried a Tomatin myself, but being a hghland malt will be a bit heavier compared to a speyside malt which tend to be a bit lighter and smoother, but a nice gift for doing a favour

    Ok, being an uncultured Colonial, I'm not sure what you mean. Should I add a little water to it, or drink a little water before I drink it?

    try with or without water, it all depends on your own personal taste, just don't add too much

    Found a nice gem of a beer. Yards Jefferson Golden Able. Not sweet despite a hint of honey, surprisingly balanced and easy to drink despite a 8%abv it's my current favorite.

    Hmmmm. Also brewed with rye and wheat. Very interesting at 8%. I'd like to try it myself.

    Not to derail the other thread, but 90m is a favorite of mine. I'm a Lager/Pilsner person and generally very sceptical of modern IPAs as they tend to be more hoppier than I like. I like the flavor balanced.

    I haven't come across the Hercules IPA on tap in any place near my home or work, but will keep an eye out. Thanks!

    Yards usually brews gluten less (not free) beers, so have you tried their Jefferson Ale? Absolutely lovely.

    First thanks to the Mod that moved this or maybe you did. Much more of a proper place to discuss Beer :)

    Have never seen Jefferson Ale, will keep my eyes open. Hercules, at least when I was drinking it, 10+ years ago was only available in 22 ounce Bombers at the time. One was enough to get you pretty buzzed, at least me. :D

    Having to drink Gluten Free limits me quite a bit and frankly most of it is total garbage. I can't tell you how many times I have asked a bartender "do you have any gluten free beer?" Their reply is usually "yes, we have a cider". Ciders are not beer!

    My favorite GF Beer is Omission IPA. Omission was one of the first to brew a "normal beer" and then send it through a process to remove the gluten. Most of the GF sorghum or rice beers are total rubbish. But those are also most made to taste like a lager and even when I was drinking normal beer, I hated lagers.

    If I ever make it back to Ireland, I am really going to miss being able to drink Guinness on tap, that had to be my favorite beer experience. Wasn't sure it was the atmosphere or the beer, probably both. Nothing like a Guinness on tap in a quaint Irish bar.

    You have my sympathies. For a beer enthusiast, being gluten free is quite a hardship.

    It's quite funny, but none here in NY/NJ seem to love Guinness. I personally am a big fan. Though I've never been to Ireland. London is as far as I've been to. Here it's a never ending cycle of IPAs which don't really have much difference between themselves. Closest I can find to a Guinness is the Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout which ain't bad.

    I'll pass on the $200.

    I can make my own for cheaper. But I like a good mead.

    I've been hitting a string of good beers lately.

    Stone IPA
    Long Trail Ale
    Flying Dog Thunderpeel Hazy IPA

    All balanced easy to drink beers. Highly recommended.
