I love taking chances....

A lovely winter ale by a family owned brewery.  Chocolate, spices, and it gets better as it warms a bit.  Unfortunately I'm impatient and drink them too cold.

Nice local saison with white grapes and an 8% alcohol.  Nice and drinkable but with lots of different flavors going on.  Could get added into the regular rotation.  Big smile

From this list, Guinness (one of my absolute favourites) and Chimay without a doubt. Some of these (Newcastle Brown, Beck's, Kirin, Stella) are bland, mass produced c**p with no real taste to them. I consider myself a beer nut and a bit of an oddity in that my preferred styles aren't IPAs and Blondes, but rather the stronger, heavier styles like Old Ales, Imperial Stouts and Barley Wines.

This tastes like a campfire smells.  There's even a hint of hot dog.

I know that sounds bizarre, but this is great.  I love it.

yeah for me.... finally finished the soda pop beer. Next up... Raff's choice and her tastes are SO much better than mine.

ohhh... that woman knows me too well. Better than myself I suppose...




nice to see what it looks like in a glass... no glasses here.. Micky takes his beer like his Jack. .straight from the bottle.

*sound of top popping*....

ummmm... oh that is good...  definitely having one with breakfast in place of the morning coffee LOL

I saw those when at Total Wine when gearing up/spurging for Progday mass consumption of fatally lethal brews... since my toes were in the fetal position without choosing that... it was probably wise I passed.

I'll pick that up next time (just went today in fact) we go to Total Wine. My favorite beers are the ones best served not cold. In fact this damn fru fru soda pop ale I've been nursing for 2 hours tastes slightly better now at room temperature.

as far as beer reviews..... like music. I enjoy being surprised as much as I enjoy being disappointed. Tastes are so damn individual to ever really have someone else guide what I may or may not like. You only find out by trying it out yourself!

Though I'd agree.. I find music reviews more entertainment than informational.   I bet beer reviews would be in the same boat.
