From this list: Chimay Bleue.Approve

The best beers come from Belgium or nearby. I recommend, among others, Hertog Jan Grand Prestige or Karakter (from the Netherlands) and Weihenstephaner (Germany), but my very favourite is Liefmans Goudenband (Belgium) and Kriek Liefmans as a close second.

The cool thing about Chimay is the fact that Trappist monks in Belgium brew it to support themselves and their good causes.  So remember, when you buy a bottle of Chimay, you're supporting God's work!  Wink

Beer is like prog.  You want to try it all but it is not really possible so you will always be a little sad that you could not experience everything each has to offer.

Chimay Bleue definitely. Its a class above even most really good beers (Stella, Guinness, Newcastle, etc.)

Tyskie.  Yum!  Second favorite Pilsner Urquel. 

Of those listed...Newcastle.

Got to love the ad bot. Across the top of the screen is "Guiness Beer Diet!"

I've tried it. Almost as effective as the "3 loaves of bread diet"

Although I'm a confirmed warm-beer-with-mud-and-sticks-in-it drinker, the one on the list above which I'll often go for is the Hoegarden White/Weiss/Wheat beer - tastes great, even when ice cold.

I'm not much of a beer-drinker (Since i'm too young to legally drink).
But i enjoy most of the ones i've tried (mostly swedish ones).

Norrlands Guld

is probably my favorite

When telling people what beer I drink , they go " you're drinking what?' - "sss Leffe" . Yeah, it funnier after after they've had a few.
Seriously - Quebec - La Fin du Monde & la Blanche de Chambly, France - Fischer, Denmark - Faxe (the 10% one), New Brunswick - most of my 8-10% homebrews (Dry Lager, Blonde, IPA), and the craft brewery down my street - the Pumphouse Brewery with their Scotch Ale, Cadian, and one I've never tasted - their blueberry ale.
I'll come back once I check my basement and the empties.

Some tasty beers listed there for sure, DBG. Thumbs Up
 
I have had the Pumphouse Blueberry (several six packs, all told), and I find it to be a very nice, refreshing "summer starter" beer. (That is, not one to drink long into the night, but a very nice beer to start with, for one or two, when the sun is out.) Don't let the "blueberry" aspect put you off: the blueberry flavour is very subtle (yet definitely there), all natural, and not at all cloying or sweet (as is the case with some fruit beers). In short, it is not too "girly:"
 
I have shared this beer with my friends, PA's Jim & Vicky Garten, and they really liked it too. We have sought it out and enjoyed it  for two summers now, when vacationing together in Newfoundland. Thumbs Up
 
Just now, I'm sampling an "Ontario Craft Brewers" variety six-pack, and the current one is "Nickel Brook Green Apple Pilsener." This is a light beer, with the usual natural ingredients, plus apple juice, and this fruit beer, while not bad,  is rather too sweet and "girly," for my tastes.
 
I'll try the Elora Irish Ale next -- see if that "mans up" the equation at all....
 
I like many beers from all over -- I'm always looking for something new, and I look for taste, and all-natural ingredients -- but on this list, I'll raise a glass to the very tasty Hoegaarden Weisse. ClapI even have a Hoegaarden glass! (I collect beer glasses.)
 
 
 
Ermm I notice everyone is being polite to the Pist Pabst Blue Ribbon drinker. Far be it from me to be otherwise....Wink

I forgot about Dougalls. It is a selfmade beer an Irish guy is producing here in Cantabria.
He just produces it for 4 or 5 local pubs and bars. Tastes great and improving with time.

Definitely one of my favorites from 'The Rock' (well, technically Nova Scotia?? ), but as you say, definitely a one-or-two in the afternoon beer (I find the blueberry flavour tends to take over after that)

But talking of Nfld - how could I not recommend my favorite tipple from that glorious isle?:



Proof positive that ice cold beer need not be flavour free!

Don't laugh, but try it with a slice of lemon; that really works.

I like those but only with an orange.  Much like I can't drink Corona without a lime slice.
