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

Do you like coffee? There are a few dark beers out there that arent the traditional kick your ass thick brew but taste more like a good cup of espresso.

If thats not for you I'd suggest giving IPA's a try. I also would give some good Belgian style ales a chance as well, some of them have some great flavor without going overboard.

Like Beetroot said, any of the fine pales available are a good compromise, some of the fuller bodied lagers, Sam Adams is pretty good and very drinkable, are a good choice. Also look at some amber ales, like Redhook ESB and tons of others. They have some bite, but not too much.

The thing about beers is giving them a chance. I'm not sure anyone likes it the first time they taste it, but you develop a taste over time. Definitely start with something a little less complex and work up from there.

I just googled 'beer flight' and one of the hits was 'David Boon' on wikipedia. I read it, and I guess this is some cricket player from Australia:

I prefer tea to coffee

Sam Adams is good. Ive had it recently and was happy with it.

I must say...lately my fav non traditional beers have been ones that required an orange for taste.

You should try some of the better German wheat beers. Paulaner HefeWeizen is probably my favorite, and a lot of people like Franziskaner HefeWeizen (which is available at a lot of bars and restaurants now). I've converted some non-beer drinkers with one of the above + a lemon. Good for summer too.

A friend of mine did the Steamwhistle brewery our and said he was treated like royalty and had a lot of beers.

Have fun and PM me the details if you do go! I'd like to go next time I'm in the area (which being Toronto is hopefully not soon, LOL. I can't stand TO... hahaha!).

Fat tire is another beer that I like to have a lot of in the refrigerator. I did have to take a break from it though, as I was drinking a ton of it and it temporarily lost its appeal.

Young's Double Chocolate Stout and Bison Chocolate Stout have a slight coffee flavor. Personally I think the Young's is far superior to the Bison.

I love just about everything Deschutes brews. Outstanding brewery. Their Black Butte and Obsidian ales are top notch if stouts are your thing.

I haven't had it in years, but Stella Artois is really nothing more than Belgiums Budweiser, but maybe I should revisit it. It seems to be catching on in the U.S., but I remember it as a kind of tasteless lager, a la American macros.

Funny that you should say that... I've always called it the Belgian Budweiser too, and I'd never heard that comparison before. It seems to be catching on as a trendy import for those that don't want something very different from American macros. To those that have it in your fridge: can I assume you have a different opinion?

Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout
Hazed and Infused
Ommegang Three Philosophers
Avery Czar Imperial Stout
St Peter's Golden Ale

I've found other numbers too Bud 4.82% and Bud Light 3.88%

so I really don't know. My guess is there are different brews for each country and probably different for each state.

Yeah 4.2% ain't bad for a Bud Light. But the elitist in me says "Is that really a beer??"
