BEERPage 1 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
Recently discovered 'Rauchbier'. a pub near me has a decent selection of these and other German beers. It's a style where the malt is smoked. It has a distinctly different flavour.

I don't like beers that are infused with fruit flavours, (although anything with raspberries *DROOL*) or are 'sweet'. Sweetness should be for sodas.

Absolutly will not drink Stella Artois.

I'm more of an Absintheur.

There is a beer in Germany called Cynthia. it had absinthe in it. Didn't have a chance to try it, next time.
There's also a place in Sweden called Garlic and Shots, that do 'Garlic beer'. Yes that's raw garlic in beer. My tongue was numb about half way through.

Kokanee is also good.
Cynthia. it had absinthe in it.
Absinthe is a particularly nasty weed that grows all over my back yard


Ha! my nickname used to be Kokanee.Never once drank it though....?....

Artemisia absinthium? Commonly called wormwood.

guinness or fosters, mmmmmmmmmmm. i like them for different reasons, the guinnes for a nice mellow chocolatey flavor it imparts, and the fosters, well because it's fosters and me likey the taste.

can't stand the aluminum tasting american beers or the fussy pissy pale ales simpering flavors, gimme something nice mellow and smooth with a good foam, and yes i chose my words carefully. there are a few good micro brews in the area, but a better one is down in sedona az, where i'll be at the end of the month for a long weekend, can't wait for the red rocks.
cheers.

Everyone needs to find that song on the NET by David Allen Coe ~ Beer is good for you! You will laugh and sing along and become suddenly very thirsty.
I love that song and I do so love my beer in a glass over ice with a straw.
Thanks and cheers to you and yours!

Geeze, $6.95 a six pack for Miller High Life? My local Food Lion has it for $8.99 per case.

Your Probably talkin bout American High Life
Of course it's that cheap over there cause they may put 1 or 2 percent in it

High Life here in Canada is premium, cause we put MORE alcohol in it

Ah, the old days of being in college: Going to the Jamaican pub to listen to reggae and drink some Red Stripe with some vinegar flavored fries, going to the German pub for a bit of Spaten, savoring a Harp at the Irish pub, and the little Mexican place for fresh baked nacho chips, salsa and a delicious Corona with a squeeze of lime Don't forget the Sapporo at the Japanese restaurant, or going for some seafood and enjoying a microbrew.

Lest Favorite Beers:
Pretty much any non premium beer (Bud, Bud Light, Miller, Busch, Coors)

Favorites:
Guinness
Bass Ale
Samuel Adams...many different kinds
Sierra Nevada pale ale
Anchor Steam porter
Samuel Smiths oatmeal stout
Pete's Wicked Ale summer brew
Moosehead
Corona
New Castle...yum
St. Paulie Girl
Beamish
Smithwicks
Alagash
Hoegarrden
Woodpecker hard cider
Negro Modelo
LaBatte Blue

Beer I really want to try:
Samuel Adam's Utopia 25.6% abv

And by the way, a premium beer (aka Craft Beer) is not determined by it's alcohol content. If it has a screw off top, it simply isn't a craft beer even though they may decide to give it a premium price. Screw off caps will never preserve the beer as well as a well sealed, pop off cap. This is why any beer that is concerned with flavor will not use a screw off cap.

Not to change the subject to dramatically, but this seems to be a good place to ask this question...

In your area, do bars/pubs often associate mislabel premium beers as imports as they do in Mississippi, where I live? I cannot count how many times I have gone to bars that claim to have $1.50 domestic beer night and I can't get a Samuel Adams for %1.50. When I then inquire about their special they inform me that Sam Adams is an import. What? Is it not brewed in Massachusetts which would make it a domestic beer? The same can be said for beers like Anchor Steam, Harpoon, Red Hook, Rolling Rock, Blue Moon, and many more. These are not imports and therefore should not be sold as imports.

This is borderline false advertisement if you ask me.

It is. I agree with you RSwindol. The bar is trying to "swindle" its customers. Pardon the pun!

I grew up on Canadian Beer, so ANYthing Canadian tops my list . .
Molsons..
Labatts..
O'keefee . . etc . .
But, for Taste . . A fresh bottle of Strohs' is to DIE for . . As is Killians Red . . !!!
Many of Samuel Adams products are good, too . .
***
LEAST Favorites . .
Pearl . . or almost Any Texan beer is Ultra Bitter / nasty . .
and..even though I grew up in Buffalo . . Genny Cream makes me ILL . . !!

Beer is supposed to be drank ' As IS ' . . If additives are 'required'[salt/lime] . . it indicates -to ME-
that it NEEDS help to taste Good . . !!!

i like the coldest beer available.

I hear this comment a lot when I get into conversations about beer. The way I see it, if you have to have your beer half a degree above freezing to stomach it, then you are admittedly drinking some nasty beer. By dramatically reducing the temperature of your beer you are reducing the bitterness and other flavors. Why should anyone need to change the flavor of a beer that they truly enjoy?

I am not saying that I can't drink beer that is very cold, but I will not drink a beer at 33 degrees (1 C) if I can't tolerate it at 47 degrees (8 C).

Seaspot, I am using your quote, but not trying to pick on you. But I will challenge you to try other beers until you find one that you enjoy even at higher temps.

Molsen Canadian for me. I dont' want to drink any more american beers.

Although i'd like to try something called a "zombie". apparently it tastes so fruity you wont know you're drinking booze....but just try standing up after having one or two.

One of my favourites is Newcastle Brown.
Can't think of any I've tried that I really don't like, some I prefer to others though.
Like to try? Not sure currently. Wanted to try hobgoblin awhile ago, tried it awhile ago too and it's good.
I've started having ale more than I used to, but I still like some lager too. Corona is another I like, especially with slice of lime.

Is it dark, rich, flavorful, and decadent? I like my beers like I like my chocolate. Not much for light, pale, or watery beers. Though had a pale apple microbrew that I was . Now if I could pronounce it or spell its name.............
