Beer really doesn't taste great...At least in comparison to great tasting foods and drinks (coffee is the same). Im not saying that some people don't like the taste, Im sure they do (I do)....But Beer (and coffee) by design have somewhat of a bitter taste....

I think beer DOES taste good. And there are so many variations on flavours.


These are good for getting hammered

I don't drink to get drunk. For me, there are times when I really thirst for an ice cold beer. I guess it means I drink it for the taste.

Funny you mention that curls. I dont think I have ever tried a steamwhistle product,....just never thought of it or had the opportunity I suppose. I have thought about going on the brewery tour though. My alumi thing from university just sent me an email (this morning) about a brewery tour in sept at steamwhilstle LOL. I dunno if I can go, but next beer I buy will be steamwhistle pilsner.

I can't bring myself to drink beer except rarely anymore.

I understand what fdl is saying.


I also think that the bud, coors, labatt, molson, etc macrobrew comparison is valid. You may lump them all in as piss water, but they all have a different taste. A good example,......I can tolerate the skunkiness (my own term,..haha dunno if anyone knows what I mean) of Labatt blue if someone gives me one on a visit to their house,......but I will decline a coors because to me it is plain gross.


Anyway, everyone has different tastes, preferences, palate sensitivity, and opinions on beer.

Heineken...thats all asian people drink it seems. Ever since I was a kid, every family celebration only had Heineken in the coolers and fridges. I personally like Leinekugel's honey weiss.

I drink for the taste and the slighlty intensified mood of a good buzz. I don't like to get drunk, though it happens on occasion (sometimes it's just part of an event). I found a site a while ago, and it describes the affects at all different steps of intoxication. It pretty much describes exactly what I've experienced. If you can get that perfect buzz and not go past it, you'll have a great time. Also, you enjoy the beer more when you don't gulp.

The site is pretty cool. It has a calculator that shows you your BAC% based on weight, # of drinks, % alcohol, and time to drink. There's other interesting info there too. I guess the web site is about smoker's rights and the "dangers" of alcohol - strange combination! I don't smoke, and I don't really take a stand one way or the other when it comes to smoker's rights, though I'm not crazy about a very smokey bar. Anyway, the site is: http://www.smokingpermitted.com/alcohol.html

That's a really interesting web site. He includes some really good info in the alcohol section. Too few people realize how damaging it is to take NSAID's like Tylenol for a hangover.

The cigarette section is just wacky. He really needs to fine tune his logic there.

That's partly because their warning is pretty weak. I think the Tylenol bottle says something about consulting your doctor if you consume more than three drinks a day. That certainly wouldn't keep the weekend warrior away from it for those tough hangovers. You'd think the warning would be stronger if it were that deadly a combination.

right now its only the 120 minute. cant find dogfish head out here in CA so thats all i ordered at the time. I'm moving to oregon monday and I found a distributor up there. I think the 90 minute is my favorite, although I'm heavily into IPA's at the moment and havent tried much else from them. I've enjoyed everything so far though

It's all good. I've just been on an ale kick for some years now. Most lager styles just don't have enough body for me. There are some good ones out there though.

Sorry. Beer pairs with food every bit as much as wine does, and people drink it as much for taste as anything. I love the taste of good beer, as does any beer fan. It sounds to me like you just don't care for beer that much. It's definitely an acquired taste, especially as you get into more complex tasting darker beers.

Once you get that taste, though, it's hard to go back.

Please stop drinking the highly overrated, skunky-because-it's-spoiled-not-because-it's-good Heineken. The fact that a lot of people perceive Heineken as a high quality beer has to be one of the greatest marketing successes in history.

It's just awful.

I like to drink good beer with good food. If I'm going to get drunk it will usually be off heineken or corona. My stomach takes a beating if I try to put back 9 or 10 Stouts or Porters (or even some strong IPA's)

Heiny is meh. I'll happily drink it over bud, coors, etc, but if there is a microbrew available, I'll take it over a Heiny.

Good news for all westerners: Dogfish Head (the best micro in the country, IMO) is working out details for distribution in CA, AZ, and NV

Currently have Stella Artois, Blue Moon and Amstel Light for guzzling - room-mate has rolling rock and bud light. My beer stock rotates with what ever I am feeling, and the season, I typically drink darker beers in winter and lighter beers in summer. Have been drinking a lot of SA Boston Lager and Summer Ale, Michelob Amber Boch, Duvel, Ommegang Witte and Hennepin and Keegan Brewer's Old Capital(really crisp, refreshing beer)

I was just browsing the Dogfish Head webpage and they are offering

"Liquer de Malt" , a limited edition brew that is sold individually in a paper bag.

I will say this about Heiny, it's much better served on tap. That skunky smell is more than I can take. All beer preferences are subjective, so to each his own.

Any beer you have to put a lime in to make it taste good must suck. And I figured out that pretty much any beer with a lime in it tastes alright.

That said, corona with a shot of bacardi limon (instead of a lime) added to spice it up, is a beautiful thing

That's a good-looking pale there. Nice color to it. I like their description: "quaffable."

Damn, still 2 hours til I can pour a cold one and quaff it

yeah I'd take a microbrew over heineken too, but I still love heineken. gotta be really really cold though, if its not cold I don't like it.

I have a friend who swears that coors original is his favorite beer for any price.

While I wont drink ANY beer out there (Steel Reserve and Nasty Ice come to mind) every beer has its place.

Not sure where Heine is, though. But Ill drink it if people buy it for me

I really cant get into the dark beers. Too pungent, thick and kills my sinuses. Any in-betweens anyone can suggest?
