Only Sam Adams I can stomach is the cherry wheat, which is delicious.

I'm easily pleased, i like Becks, although only if served real cold, it has a nice taste as it goes down the throat. ( might be lager ) 

 

Okay well another i like which is a beer brewed in Scotland, it's called Broughton's Greenmantle Ale.

Love imported beers from Europe, Australia, Japan, etc.

 

Won't even touch American beers, they're awful. Almost like drinking a 50/50 split between beer and water, pathetic.

Pick up some Dragon's Milk...yep it costs a bunch, $16 for a 4-pack(around here).

But one will do you good.

I still like the Sam Adams.  And my favorite is the Summer Ale and I WAS very bummed this year, Adam, when it gave way to Octoberfest.

 

I've recently had some Shiner Bock I  really liked and some Dogfish Head IPA that was really good.  I have concluded that I don't lean towards beers with lots of hops (bitter) and tend to prefer those "lighter" in flavor.

 

I am a fan of several of Sam Adams seasonal brews, including the Summer Ale, Octoberfest, and Winter Lager. Their Christmas Ale is very good, too -- my niece gave some to me for Christmas, bless her.

 

I just came from a hockey game where I had a Bell's Winter White Ale. :wub:  Bell's in a microbrewery in Kalamazoo, Michigan that has some great beers. Their summer Oberon brew is quite popular around here.

I'm not a huge fan of amber/red ales but I gotta say the Evil Dead Red by AleSmith brewing is quite delish. Very well balanced and a bit heavier than your average red ale. It came out during Halloween and I haven't seen it since. If you're of fan of this type ale try and find some.

I saw on some TV program on beer that American beers were geared for a hotter climate and for more thirst-quenching than flavor. The ultra light beers like Michelob Ultra qualify as 'near-beers' at best IMO and are made for people who don't really like beer.

I like hoppy ale type beers myself, mainly IPAs. I particularly like Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA, though I am open to others.

The Lost Abbey is producing some fine mock Belgians. Red Barn is a spicy golden strong. At a modest 6.7% (for a Belgian) it a great bargain at $6.89 a bomber.

@ Sam's Club. Unfortunately, this is the only offering so far from The Lost Abbey available there. Bevmo carries their whole line. They are mimicking Belgians much like Canada's Unibroue but more complex. You will have to dig deeper into the pockets also
