The Beer

Lift Light - As you can see, there were 12 beers on tap that day, so I may gloss over some of the lighter ones. The Lift Light was, as the Brewmaster put it, meant to "compete with Budweiser."
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

O'Henry Helles - Dry and bitter, without redemption
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Belgian White - A peach taste at first. As soon as I tried it, I decided to submerge the accompanying orange slice in the beer. Much better. Orange and coconut taste. I should be on a beach somewhere drinking this.
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

13th Floor Pale Ale - Light in body and flavor, especially for a PA. This is the lightest one I'd have on a revisit. Very British, mild and bitter. I could drink this one all night.
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Necessity IPA - Though relatively light and not as "pale" as most, the Necessity was still an instant favorite among the first six. The IPA is dry-hopped. The bitter, hollow finish begins to arrive near the end of the sample.
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Bott Brothers ESB - Sweet, grapefruit/berry aroma. Tastes like a fruity bitter. The GM, Larry, says, "nice acidity on front end; nice long finish." Mark, a fellow patron says, "It's too sweet, like an ESB with a packet of sugar."
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Marzen, Marzen - Okay, Okay. Light, but tasty.
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Shifty Dando's Nut Brown Ale - Best one so far. Effervescent, but smooth, the Nut Brown has a nice medium body and a nutty finish that lingers well. This is a beer I could drink very regularly.
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Procrastinator Dopplebock - Smells almost sweet and sour at the same time. The taste is pretty much right to style, a classic caramel/coffee/chocolate taste in its medium body. There's a good dark chocolate/hop finish.
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Coal Porter - Nutty and malty, Coal is a sweet Porter. The slight chocolate tones are just right, but I wish the smoky flavor would come through more in the body. For a lighter Porter, this is very good. It's billed as a "steak-lovers beer." I definitely agree; it did complement the beef I had.
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Ole Pen Nitro Stout - Like a sweet Imperial. Drinkable and lighter, it was still little too sweet for me.
Reviewer's Rating: n/a

Discussion with Vince Falcone

Vince Falcone. I have yet to meet an unfriendly, generous Brewer, and Vince is no exception. Ryan, one of the owners, said, "We're going for the style guidelines." I thought the beers were on the lighter side, as you can tell (Zaiga says, "Not enough taste to any of them"), but I would generally agree with Ryan's statement. Plus, there are so many from which to choose.

The Atmosphere

The blue lighting motif is the coolest angle I've seen in awhile. Blue lights under the bar and on the ceilings (check their web site for photos), cool jazz in the background - a great hangout for a group of friends. Two of the pool tables are over 100 years old. The Beef Tournedos was great, but the serving could've been more generous. Definitely order an appetizer if you go. Don had the Fish and Chips. He thought the Remoulad sauce added a nice touch, but the fish is good enough to stand on its own merits.

Afterthoughts

Coal Porter, Nut Brown Ale, and IPA.
