    | The Lets Talk Beer Thread |

    Any beer aficionados on here?

    What are your favorite beer styles and what are the styles you don't like? For me it's almost only craft and import beers, not the usual bottled pee like bud, coors etc...




    Favorites:

    Stouts, double/imperial stouts, coffee stouts, milk stouts, oatmeal stouts, hmmmm... I am definitely a stout man!

    IPAs, double/imperial and/or black IPAs and pale ales, bring on the hops!

    Belgian abbey style strong beer. Classic!

    Witbiers (white beers), refreshing, light and spicy, when I feel like something lighter.



    Least favorites:

    Sweet and syrupy beers like barley wines and eisbocks (ice beers).

    Porters, meh, I had some good porters but not a style I am a fan of.


    **If you're drinking a beer let us know what kind and how you rate it out of 5.

    Cheers!

    I am an amateur beer aficionado, in that I don't know much about beer. I buy different ones and make note of the ones that I like and the ones I don't like, without any outside influences. I think a lot of beer drinkers like the beers that other people tell them they are supposed to like. I just like the ones that I like. I'm just sorry that I'm only able to barely scratch the surface of the beers that are available.

    I seem to like wheat beers such as various belgian whites and hefeweizens- Blue Moon, Sam Adams Hefeweizen, Sam Adams Summer Ale, Sam Adams Winter Lager, Shiner Hefeweizen. I also like a few Bocks such as Shiner Bock and Michelob Amber Bock. As for the mass produced stuff like Bud and Coors, it tastes to me like water with a little bit of bitter taste thrown in. A lot of people like the popular Mexican beers like Corona. To me Corona tastes like Coors, but OTOH I do like Dos Equis.

    There are a lot of beers out there waiting for me.

    Pale ales, ambers (especially home brewed by a competent amateur) and some lagers. As far as store bought, everything from Dos Equis amber to Tiger Lager (Malaysian) to Sierra Nevada pale ale.

    Used to like Swan Lager amber from Australia but don't see it around anymore. The Singha Lager in Thailand isn't bad. Some of the German brands like Becks and Heinekens give me a headache....don't know why. They just do. Good pilseners like Pilsner Urquell (Czech) are a bit rich but I like one or two at a time.

    Yeah I got in the habit of drinking the better Mexican brands instead of Coors or Budweiser slop back when I worked road construction before I was even 20. I haven't hardly touched the sweet crappy generic American brands like that since. Dos Equis was my usual. I don't hardly drink that much by myself anymore. They have some great microbrews anymore and I'll sample those alright. No stouts.

    Pilsner Urquell. The original Pilsner beer. Brewed in Pilsen, Czech Republic. Oh hell, this list could forever...Too many good beers, too little time.

    Stouts and porters top my list. Smoky, malty and slightly bitter are what I like. My current favorite is Steel Toe Dissent.

    Having one of these right now.

    Appearance - Clear golden colour, you can see right through the glass. White head with good carbonation

    Smell - Citrus and pine

    Taste - Big pop of pine, some tropical fruits, grapefruit, hops are present, bitter finish at the end

    Overall - A good offering from Lagunitas but no means is it the best in the world but a good beer to start out if you've never drunk a West Coast IPA

    My Rating - 3.5/5

    I've got a wide range of tastes and try to support our local brewers. Most of the time I tend to the IPAs and other pale ales (for the hoppiness and bitterness), porters and stouts for their rich flavors and heartiness, but by no means do I limit myself to these. I love a nice crisp Pilsner on a hot day working around the house, yard and garage.

    Some of my current favorites:
    - Just about anything from our local guys (Jacksonville, FL): Bold City Brewery, Intuition Ale Works, Green Room Brewing, Engine 15 Brewing Company, Aardwolf Brewing Company
    - Anything from Innis and Gunn
    - Most of the more mainstream Dogfish Head offerings, particularly their IPAs
    - Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout, Alltech Lexington Brewing and Distilling Co.
    - Midnight Oil Oatmeal Coffee Stout, Swamp Head Brewery, Gainesville, FL
    - Grimbergen Blonde and Dubbel

    There are always more to add to the list, but Ustay away from stuff from the "big three" companies as I find it very generic and tasteless. I also haven't found a wheat beer I like either.

    My go to beers tend to be dark: Porters and stouts, although oatmeal stouts seem to be real hit or miss. I really like some, but I've had others that tasted more like a lager..blech.

    Very few lagers and pilsners, and I tend to avoid really hoppy beers like IPAs. Again, though, there are rare exceptions.

    I like brown ales, wheat beers (especially German), smoke (Rauch) beers, cream ales.

    I like the barley wines and ice beers, as well. Especially with dessert...or as dessert. I didn't discover a beer that I liked until I was in my 30s, and moved to Germany.

    RPK79: Hmm... I'm always open to try a new one. I'll look for that around here. Total Wine or World of Beer (most... awesome... name...) should have it.

    They had it at a bar I went to last month for a co-worker's last day party and it was pretty darned tasty out of the tap. I picked up a 6 pack of bottles the next week and they weren't bad. I really prefer my beer out of the tap though...

    IPAs. Everything else plays second fiddle.
