      Gave this one a shot last night:

      it was interesting. The "Belgian" moniker is questionable, but on the whole, it was certainly an interesting drink. And very smooth and drinkable for a 8+%

      I "HAD" to take a vacation with the rib (aka better half) up to San Antonio for her dental conference.... so I am sitting in Blue Star Brewery and just had some of their bourbon barrel aged barleywine and was COMPLETELY floored by how good it is!!! Is it underhyped? No, its unknown. Awesome!!!!!!

      Magic hat #9. I had it in Springfield, MA at an italian resturaunt next to the basketball hall of fame. Was really goodl

      Hate #9. Its what there best known for AFAIK coming from talking to people. I think "Circus Boy" is their best. Its a Hefeweizen and its great.

      Also, Fat Tire is great. Love that stuff.

      Hitting up Taco Mac so hoping to find something new and delicious.

      Last week had a Tommyknocker Pick Axe ale and was not very pleased - had a very very metallic aftertaste, blech.

      When I was in München I OBVIOUSLY has some

      Pretty good...brought it back for some of my buddies to try (HUGE Bud Light fans) and they let me have it! More for me...suckers.

      Sierra Nevada's Summer Lager is quite nice. Tasty malts and a nice hop profile that reminds me of the varieties often found in a pilsener.

      Weihenstephaner Hefe-Weiss
      Schneider-Weisse
      Urthel Hop-it
      Southampton Saison
      Brooklyn Local 1
      Brooklyn Brown
      Ommegang Witte
      La Chouffe
      Big Boss Helles Belle

      None of these were new for me, just stuff I opened up for my little "Tres De Mayo" party. I probably spelled some of those incorrectly.

      Pilsner is a type of lager...that's probably why. Haven't had any Sam's in a long time and after hearing about the glass in the bottles I'm not taking my chances!

      Sipped on this Friday, I rather enjoyed the crispy hoppy finish.

      All you have to do is check the bottle for N 35 OI.

      I like the Raison D'Etre. On draft at the brewhouse here is awesome. Not sure if you're a dessert wine/port drinker, but maybe give the D'Extra shot one day after a nice meal. It's great fresh. WONDERFUL with age on it as i the Fort.

      I will add that to the list. I love dessert wines/ports, was actually just eyeballing a madeira I have up on the wine cabinet from V.Sattui. I may need to crack into that soon.

      Oh excellent. Then by all means give the Raison D'Extra and Fort a shot. They are awesome after dinner alternative to a dessert wine or cognac.

      I have not had Sam Adam's beer lately because of the glass in the bottle scare[http://www.samueladams.com/cidefault.htm] and also because I don't particularly like Sam Adams.

      I'm really glad to see some good brews in here, I was afraid of seeing a whole lot of Bud, Coors, Corona, etc.

      I currently have a sixer of Paulaner Hefenweizen in my fridge, plus a few Leinenkugel Summer Shandy (although not the best beer in the world, it's refreshing). I also have a bottle of Sam Triple Bock.

      been making some mixups of Leinenkugels latley. I got their explorer pack and just been mixing and matching.
      it comes with berry, weiss, honey weiss, summer shandy and sunset wheat. Kinda puckery for beer, but it was worth a try.

      Always loving the good ole 10.6% alchoholic nature of Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout. love that beer. Its good to have with dinner or the last beer of the evening. Very filling.

      Brooklyn Black Choc Stout is killer stuff. I had some Live Oak Hefeweizen (I would put $ on it being one of, if not the, best hefes made in the USA. Out-friggin-standing. I also got my hands on some Allagash White, perfect season for this beer. Picked up a sixer of Lagunitas Maximus IPA and was very nice, but not what I was expecting for an IPA from the west coast.

      Green Flash Hop Head Red. Nice American Red Ale. West coast hop profile. Pretty tasty and drinkable/sessionable.

      went through most of this thread and didnt see to many beers i like to drink.

      now im no beer buff nor do i have a lot of cash to spend on fine imported beer but i like to drink beer every now and then

      let me know how you guys feel about what i like and is there any recomendations someone can give me maybe to try something new.

      kinda trashy i know, but when they are cold they arent bad.

      i have tried this recently and enjoyed it, i put the orange in one and it tasted good, but garnishes are for girls


      i cant find a pic but how do you guys feel about Ten Penny Ale?


    22. 05-12-2008 08:06 AM #652
      I just picked up a 6er of Sly Fox Pikeland Pilsner. I really enjoyed it, almost as much as Victory Prima Pils (my current favorite)

      No worries, you can enjoy great beer even on a budget. Blue moon is a great crossover beer. If you enjoy it I have to recommend some german hefeweizens and belgian wits. You can land Franziskaner and Paulaner Hefe pretty easily and it is quite good. The belgian wits can cost a bit more, but I can usually find ommegang witt for a decent price. Both are very refreshing. While adapting to the taste of real beer, I would certainly recommend these. Also, you may want to try some american pale ales, belgian pale ales, and lighter german lagers. Have fun.

      Tried McMenamins ESB on nitro at the St. Johns Pub.

      Nice solid ESB, nothing over the top spectacular about it but a nice solid tasting beer, good hop to it along with a hint of sweetness/fruitiness. Did very well on nitro.

      No worries,........

      thanks for the info, those are some tricky names to remember but ill keep an eye out for them. im just gonna save this message so i can write down the names you mentioned.

      i have found myself enjoying the lighter colored beers like the pales and blondes . as for amercian pale ale i gave rolling rock a try and i love it. (not pale but) heineken is one of my favorites as well.

      i dont mind a stronger beer, ive had some stout from a microbrewery around here in new haven, Ct that is quite good

      They had the Palo Santo Marron on tap for the DFH west coast release party a couple weeks ago.

      It's really good

      I really enjoyed it. Definitely a sipping beer.

      I sent my fiance to Green's ( a local source for good beer ) while I was back in Oregon to get me some Dogfish Head Immort Ale and Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest. They were out of the Immort but he found the Palo Santo Marron instead and so I came home to a fully restocked beer fridge - so much that there was not enough room for the McMenamins brews I brought back but thankfully just enough room for the Big Sky Moose Drool that made it back with me.

      I dare say there are fewer more beautiful sights
