I am currently craving a nice ice cold tasty adult beverage...something dark maybe? an ale? hmmm....so many options. :D

Any recommendations???

Hoppy Face Amber Ale or Hoppy Brewery's Burnt Sienna Ale?
Newcastle??? Sierra Nevada? Lagunitas IPA?
Even Budweiser's American Ale would suffice.

Damn, i'm thirsty!

My vote would be Newcastle, or Harp or a nice hefeweisen, may not be dark enough for you. Man I'm getting thirsty!

I'd give one of my Guinness if I could.

I like most beers except anything made by Bud or Natural Ice. My favorite is actually a Chinese beer called Tsing Tao. Smooth, crisp and delicious! Althouth it is a lighter beer (not a light beer), I tend to favor the darks better. Well, except for Guinness. Otter, I don't know how you can drink that motor oil! Nasty :?

My favorite inexpensive beer! I believe one of the bottleing plants is here in FL, so you can find it everywhere here for little money, and since they don't have far to traval, they seem to be more fresh than ones I have gotten while out of state.

I usually drink Busch at band practice because If you buy the good stuff you only get one or maybe two and for the same price I can bring a couple six packs of Busch. The darker ones are the best, I like a beer that drinks like a meal. Right now my favorite is a German beer that I was introduced to called Franziskaner. It has almost a fruity kind of after taste and I was drinking it for a while before I found out that it is 10% which is pretty damn strong for a beer. You would never guess it's that strong because it's so smooth. I don't know if you guys have it out there but Mac and Jacks is also delicious.

I have to share this story with you guys...

So I was at manager meeting for my company a couple weeks ago. They had brought in a rep from Samuel Adams. This rep was talking about how Sam Adams Boston Lager is like the #1 craft brew in the United States out of all beers brewed in the world that are sold here, or something like that. So anyways, she went into detail and talked about how the recipe for the Boston Lager was found in an attic by Samuel Adams' great, great grandson or whatever and how the recipe is American. She was like "support America. Buy Sam Adams."

So later on her shpeel she mentioned how Samuel Adams gets their hops form Bavaria. Doesn't sound too American to me, so I spout off "is that how you support America? by getting your hops from Bavaria?!" You guys should have seen the look on the faces of my bosses they were like :-o . Immediately I realized what I had done, no turning back though...it was a very awkward moment. She then begin talking about the reason why they get the hops from Bravaria and how its because the hops are a specific type...whatever.

One thing I had also thought about was how this "uniquely American recipe" that was created in the late 1700s probably didn't call for Bavarian hops. those people are so full of shit. :cuss:

Now the reason why I brought this up is because right now I am sipping on some Samuel Adams Octoberfest and it just made me think of that day. Obviously I am not boycotting them or anything, they do make good beer. :cheers:

Borlaxx
10-27-2009, 02:15 PM
I have heard the hops from that area of the world are the best, so can't fault them for using the best, but it does undermine their "american beer" argument. Also, I believe the recipe story is complete bullshit. Sam Adams was started by that dude in the commercials within the past few decades, and I believe he just used the name sam adams because adams did some brewing and the founder wanted an all-american icon for their all-american beer. Still, mad respect for calling out their hypocracy. Don't really care for their beer anyway. Too much hops.

A seasonal brew by the Blue Moon brewing company called Full Moon Winter Ale is out, and I highly recommend it. I really don't care for Blue Moon's normal Belgian White Ale and prefer Hoegaarden or even Shocktop instead, but I have to say this one is delicious and I am glad I tried it. It is a smooth abby ale brewed with a touch of belgian brown sugar. It isn't sweet at all, just smooth and flavorful.

Since there has been some beer talk in the forums and on the chat I thought I would bring this thread back from the post-page 1 depths.

I tend to prefer Tsing Tao, Hoe Gaarden, various Sam Adams, and various Leinenkugel. Since I have been trying to loose weight I have been drinking light beer and it is a tough transition. Anyone have a light beer they could recommend? Sam Adams light is okay, but that is all - okay. All other domestic light beers taste like water with added beer flavoring from concentrate :sick: Amstel Light has more alcohol than most light beers which remove alcohol to reduce calories, but whatever they did remove to reduce calories also reduced the taste. The best light beer I have found so far has been Becks Light. It actually tastes like beer. Unfortunately not many places sell it and I have to go to a liquor store and pay a marked up price for it.

NNooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!! DON'T DRINK LIGHT BEER!!!

Just have a real one less frequently as you normally would :)

Good light beer has it's place ("Good" being the operative word). They're nice for fast-drinking on a hot summer day.

Nice list!I have recently gotten back into Unibroue with there variety pack,,, i especially love Maudite and "La fin du monde". I saw "rafters" or something like that from unibroe yesterday but didnt buy it...its a whisky ale or something...ever try it?

Boreale blonde or Harp are good pale beers and killkenny and Guiness are also favorites.

I sampled some Unibroue last year at a brew fest. Can't recall which ones, but they were great!! Good enough that I've tried to find them whenever I venture into a new liquor store - but so far no luck. I'll keep looking - hopefully see them again this year.

I like a wide variety of brews - IPA, ESB, Pale Ale, White Ale, Black Ale, Brown Ale, Wheat, Stout, Lager & Porter. I like to mix it up whenever I make a new purchase - just to give my taste buds a change. My favorite right now are the IPA's.

As for brewers, Great Lakes, Boulder Beer, Great Divide, Left Hand, Sam Adams, Goose Island are all excdellent.

The Maudite is Awesome !!!!! @-) There's a bar in Chambly, Unibroue's hometown, that serve it on tap ! SICK !
The one you're talking about is the "Raftman"...it's not one of my favorites but it is very tasty !
One of the best sellers at Unibroue is the "Ephemère". It is a limited édition batch made with fruits... The apple one is to die for, especially during those insanely hot summer days.
There's 2 speciality beers from Unibroue that are only available at the Quebec's own SAQ (our government-owned liquor stores)they are called "la Fringante" and "la Terrible"....very strong and tasty...especially the dark Terrible. Try them if you can !

Not as often as I used to. The cold affects my joints too easily these days (@ the grand old age of 32). I was all beered/lagered out by the age of 28. I just stopped liking the taste of the stuff. I can drink it every now and again, but not too often. You have to realise that I don't drink the cheap nasty stuff but I do drink strong cider. About 2 bottles (4 litres or just under 8 pints) and I can still have a good night on MW:R. If you guys see me running around randomly getting killed lots without killing, I've probably had too much and am also v tired.

From a non-drinkers perspective, I have a curiosity about beer and a question that I'd like to ask. What makes a beer taste good? I've smelled it and that is what kind of drives me away from it. But from the taste stand point, what is it that you 'look' for? Or is taste not even important and 'buzz' becomes the important part? Just curious.

Also, is there a beer that is considered the 'best tasting'?

BostonIrish
07-23-2010, 12:44 PM
For me its all about the taste. That's why I hardly ever drink from the bottle. From a pint glass, you can capture the aroma as you drink it. I like a beer with lots of hop flavor and smell. I also like to switch up what I'm drinking just to enjoy the different flavors.

Hey, Teach. I think Beer is very much an acquired taste. Most people start drinking when they are young and then it is definitely about the "buzz", but as you get older you develop a preference. I prefer European beers (lager/Pilsner)with a nice hoppy flavour to them like Grolsch or Pilsner Urkell. Good beer has a natural bitterness to it which is the predominant flavour note. Someone who prefers something like, oh I don't know, let;s saaaaaaay, a Snapple-semifreddo, will have a hard time adjusting to that bitterness. No, it would be impossible to say that any one Beer was "the best tasting"; it's entirely a matter of personal preference. And finally, yes, even at my advanced age, the "buzz" does count for something too. I know that some people will drink just one Beer for the "Flavour", but I'm not one of them. I like drinking "a few beers" with friends and don't mind living through the headache the next day.

My parents are going, they bought their tickets the day they went on sale. Yep, and that's not a misprint, it is Brewgrass, a beer and bluegrass festival in one. Apparently it has turned into a big event up there. Ha, my parents are 1 year shy of 60 and still rock'n the beer festivals. Frigg'n die hard hippies, LOL.

@trojan, the hops are what give beer most of the flavor, aroma. There are many types of hops, from very strong bitter to mild.

'fraid we're not at the moment... no one is sober enough to read any Resumes.

Apparently our Danish office gets beer served to them at meetings. I've already put in a transfer request.



Ahhh! Beer Festivals.
On the subject of beer festivals, I'm off to The Great British Beer Festival (http://gbbf.camra.org.uk/home) on Weds... roughly 1000 bitters and ales (my personal preference) and lots of other lagers and ciders. I may be indisposed on Thursday!

Here's the beer festival that I served behind the bar at, in my home town of Hitchin. Quite a laugh with pints subsidised for staff at 50p a pint (about US$ 0.70).

Depends on the imbiber, Teach. It took me a while to like beer, because when I was 4, I had an unfortunate accident of mistaking my dad's Coors Lite :sick: for my Martinelli's sparkling apple cider, and took a big swig. :)) took me 18 years to like beer after that!

To me, the flavor is paramount; I am a total foodie, so the pairing with food is really what makes beers shine to me. Yes, there are many that taste great solo, but, just like fine wines, it's the pairing that makes them glorious :x

I LOVE dark beers for the most part; stout, porter, and dark ales, but I also really love a very hoppy IPA (India Pale Ale). Tonight, after softball, my friends and I are sharing a growler of Hopworks' (http://www.hopworksbeer.com/) Ace of Spades Imperial IPA, coming in at 100 IBU :-o :D

The flavor profiles I prefer are fairly malty, with medium attenuation (body; low attenuation is a beer with a 'thick' mouthfeel, and a very attenuated beer has a very light, crisp, 'dry' mouthfeel), and significant hop profile. I like a strong hop nose, with a light-strong bitterness that isn't overpowering

Malts are the grains that are used to make beer, and the flavors they produce are wonderfully varied by type, as well as the malting and roasting methods. Some of the flavors you can get are: toasty, caramel, honey, chocolate, smoked, and roasted.

Hops have incredibly varied flavor profiles as well; some are VERY bitter, some are very spicy (or even peppery), some are mellow and herbacious, and still others taste highly of citrus.

*sigh* Aaaahhhhhhhhh...suddenly I have the urge to go brew another batch :D

Bah. Asheville - you guys had to pull out all the stops this year to take the title of "Beer City, USA" from us (Portland, OR) this year X( :D Gotta love the beerfests - we just had 2 in 2 weeks - one for foreign beers, and one for the local microbrews :party:
