20150720: [20150821 Edit]
Today I went to Slater's 50/50 with my friends and to drink I ordered a beer flight.

After trying all four of the beers in the flight and taking a sip of Josh's CoCoNut PorTeR by Maui Brewing, I went on to try Michael's drink, Barley Forge The Patsy.

While I did take a sip of water between trying Josh's beer and Michael's beer, I only found The Patsy having a standard taste despite it dark color. More explicitly, it was not so bitter and tasted like the average ale. Of course, I had already taken about five sips worth of beer by that point and it's hard to say how that would affect the taste.

Beer Flight @ Slater's 50/50:
1) Anderson Valley Summer Solstice
2) Saint Archer Coffee Cream Porter
3) Hangar 24 Belgian Summer Ale
4) Beach City Beach de Garde
