Come to Britain have a pint of hand pulled real ale and you will be spolit for choice...... That said I have a few entirely regional dependent !

1. Timothy Taylors Landlord Bitter (Yorkshire).
2. Tetleys Bitter (probably because I was weened on it in Yorkshire)
3. Deuchars IPA (Horseshoe Bar, Glasgow).
4. Robinsons Bitter (Manchester)

So I was brought up in Yorkshire, studied in Manchester and now live south of Glasgow.

NB all hand pulled not bottled.

Wow I never realized so many people liked pale ales... I tend to stick to lagers like Yuengling, but these days I'm really getting into Belgian whites - ever since my friend bought us a case of Blue Moon a while back. Right now I'm enjoying a case of Shock Top. I also really like drinking molson and labatt's. Not really into the hoppy stuff like Stone IPA (Gargoyle). One of my friends had some of that a while ago too, and I found myself chugging it to heavy metal... fun stuff lol. I can't stand drinking stuff like Black and Tan's, makes me want to puke just thinking about it.


I don't drink coffee at all, that probably has a lot to do with people's tastes in beer.... I don't smoke anymore either. If you think about it coffee and cigarettes taste like crap.

It's true! I've traveled up and down Europe, sampled the hell out of their beers through many pubs.
It's damn good, especially up in Germany.

Still gotta say though, I'm a lucky man to live a block from a microbrewery, they get awards all the time for making delicious beer.
Nor Cal doesn't mess around with good product, that's for sure.

It's really not a slap at American brewers.

But really it is. I just worked with a bunch of Europeans here in the states and for the most part the only American beer they were familiar with was Budweiser, and they were all in agreement that American beer was sh*te. On the last night I went out and got them a sixer of Dogfishhead 60 min IPA, some Smuttynose Pale Ale and a bomber of Stone Ruination. None of them knew American beer like that existed. While I applaud Germany's centuries old purity laws, and Belgian Abbie's that have been brewing beer for 800 years, that doesn't take away from the quality of beer being produced here in the states.

enjoying a flying dog as we speak.

The best beer I have had is Maredsous Triple. Sadly, I have only seen it offered for sale in 2 different pubs.

if i may....Piston head:



Made with munich malt and pilsner hops.
I can personally vouch for this one, as can 5 bavarian guests




Or Marestads from the same brewery, a dortmund style beer, darkish, malty, but very drinkable.




For the less off UK connoisseur, I would recommend perlenbacher from Lidl.

It's Good German pilsner, on a par with any other mass produced Pilsner.



Good taste, fantastic hoppy buzz. Cheap for the quality.

review

I was 18 years in Bavaria.

Now in the Uk.

Not really off topic, but....

Anyone know any other good, affordable, orderable beer (with only barley, water and hops) in the uk?

Hefeweizen in general.

My first hefe was memorable. Sort of like the first time I had sex--I really liked it.

Nothing satisfies better than a cold Duff beer. Can't get enough of that wonderful Duff!

I used to drink Fudd, until I went blind.

I've had a lot of different beers in my life, including some Swiss "Christmas beer" of unremembered brand that had 14% alcohol, but the one that I discovered recently that is surprisingly good is Carlsberg draft.

It is nothing like Carlsberg in cans or bottles. It is still a lager but it has a fuller more satisfying flavour.

I just got back from the pub actually where I had a pint of Guinness with fish and chips. Guinness is almost a cliché but hey, the clichés get to be clichés for a reason. It is my favorite stout and will be around as long as anybody is around on this planet.

I like Leffe blonde as well. Belgian beer with a tincture of orange in the flavour. Very nice.

Edit: Millstream Organic. A very nice locally (Toronto) brewed lager should also get a mention. Very good any time but great warm weather beer. Very clean on the palate.

One time I didn't drink for about two years. My first beer after two years was a Molson's Export, a typical Canadian mass produced beer. After two years of not drinking anything, it tasted as rich as sherry.

I have to say my absolute favorite beer I have tried to date is one my friend brought back with him from germany. It's a dark lager and the only one I have tried that I have liked the bottle he brought back was much larger than the one shown, and that was about 10 years ago.



As far as what I like that I normally drink my favorites here would have to be Sam Adams (everything but Winter Lager as it tastes like rotting leaves) and this one Wachusett Blueberry Ale.



The stuff I drink that is mainstream that everyone in America knows about is Schlitz and Busch.....but those take a backseat to those previously mentioned.

I kick off my boots, crack a beer and get on the internet to look up the news of the day. As long as it is cold, bubbly and hoppy, I'm a happy man.

I like Sam Adams, their regular brew. Their Octoberfest brew is delicious as well. Don't care for any of their honey or berry stuff.

As for macro swill, something to drink on the softball field, Coors or Busch. They're cheap and you can drink a lot of them.


*Edit: Except for Blueberry Ale. I can't remember who made it, but after a twelve pack of that nonsense, I thought I was going to die. Blueberries and beer don't belong together.
