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


Blue Moon is great with an orange slice.  Try it with a clove-studded orange slice.

How about Samichlaus,  the world's strongest lager, 14% alcohol by volume? I heard that these get better with age like fine wine.

Very Anglo selection you got there; being from LA, as I am, we have a plethora of Mexican beers to chosoe from as well. That said, my favorite beer is probably the Japanese beer Sapparo (sic?); of the beers listed above...hmm...Newcastle, I think. And I'm not usually an ale man, but Newcastle is definitely among my favorite of beers.

Special nods to Red Stripe, which despite my friends opinions, I find easy to drink, and Shriner, which is also (if memory serves) a good beer. Ha.

Heineken, Blue Moon and Corona are my top 3 right now...  it changes all the time though, I'm as open minded towards beer as I am to musicBig smile I usually prefer light stuff (color wise, not "light" beer), though I quite liked the Shiner stuff, but not so much Newcastle.

^ Yes Toaster, stout is very good -- but there are good and "real" beers in all of the beer "genres."
 
I had a very tasty porter on the weekend. If you can find this one (should be easy if you're in Ontario, like me), give it a go:
 
ClapMill St. Coffee Porter -- good for shovelling snow!  
 
Yes, it really has coffee in it, but it doesn't overwhelm the beer.
 
(Mill St. won an award as Canada's best craft brewer in 2007, BTW -- all of their beers are top notch. Their "Tankhouse Ale" is also especially tasty. Nice painted bottles, too. Thumbs Up)
 
Geek Did you know that "porter" got its name from the stevedores or "porters" who worked the London dockside, carrying passengers' heavy loads for hire? These stout labourers favoured strong, flavourful beers, and the burst of hearty energy they imparted. I appreciate porter when shovelling in the -20C snow, I can tell you!
 
 
 
 
I have had other stouts and porters with black cherry, oysters, oatmeal, and chocolate. This one is a delicious example of the latter exotic treat:
 
Young's Double Chocolate Stout 
 
A winter treat from England. There really is chocolate added, but as with the Mill St., the addition doesn't overwhelm, but complements the flavourful roasty-toasty quality of the stout
 
 
Good for Christmas sipping! Thumbs Up
 
Smile Finally, here is another nice beer from "across the pond" -- I bet many of our British friends on PA will know it, and appreciate it. I found it to be very fresh, very smooth, very refreshing -- and organic!  V
 
Oxford Gold 4.0%
English Target hops give this beer a remarkable aroma. Late hopping with Goldings and fermentation by the Brakspear yeast creates a remarkable zesty aroma, a full fruity flavour and a golden colour. All Hops and Barley used in this beer are organically grown and produced.

Youngs Double Chocolate Stout is definitely in my top 10 beers of all time, as is the following:



Dark, rich, full of flavour - just as good on gravity from the cask or bottled (actually works quite well cold too, which a lot of "proper" beers don't) - Highly recommended.
