Beer..

Postby ssar » Fri Oct 28, 2005 9:03 am

Most of the beers I have tried and recall and can rate:

Beck’s is good.
Bintang is ok.
Budweiser is poor.
Blue Tongue is poor.
Carlsberg Elephant Beer is nice.
Carlton Cold is great.
Carlton Draught is nice.
Cascade Premium Lager is very nice.
Coopers Sparkling Ale is very nice.
Corona is very nice only with a fresh slice of lime.
Crown Lager is very nice.
DAB Original is very nice.
Fosters is sh*t.
Grolsch is very nice.
Guiness is very nice.
Hahn Ice is good.
Hahn Premium Lager is very nice.
Heineken Lager is very nice.
James Squire Original Pilsner is very nice.
Kent Old Brown is good.
Kokanee is ok.
Lowenbrau is very nice.
MB is good.
Miller Draft is ok.
Molson Canadian is ok.
Powers Bitter is good.
Redback is average at best.
Reschs Pilsner is good.
Sheaf Stout os ok.
Singha is good.
Speights is very nice.
Tooheys New is average at best,
Tooheys Dry is good.
Tooheys Old is the elixir of the gods.
Tusker Premium is good.
VB is very nice.
XXXX is sh*t.
XXXX Gold is ok.

All of the above applies only when the beer is icy cold, except for Guiness which can be real good even when not icy cold.
A glass/pint of guiness seared in the centre for a second or two with a very hot fire poker is delicious.

A fresh icy cold schooner of Tooheys Old with a good shot of Stones in it owns all.

Beer in no particular order:
Fat Tire
Singletrack
Smithwick's
Harp
Sierra Nevada Porter
Breckenridge Brewery Avalance Pale Ale (I like all Breckenridge stuff)
Red Hook IPA (or just about anything by Red Hook except the Winter Ale)
Shiner Blonde
Rogue Dead Guy Ale
Black and Tans (using Harp, not Bass)
Flying Dog of many varieties
Yuengling


I've also been known to favor Coors Light, PBR, or Miller High Life when I don't particularly care to get drunk or spend a lot of money when out at the bar or drinking in the woodshop on a hot day. I absolutely will not drink regular Miller Lite or Michelob Golden Draft(light). Ever.

Cocktails:
Bloody Mary (my own mix)
Bloody Bull (my own mix)
Morgan Coke
Lord Coke
A nice glass of 10-12 year single malt scotch on the rocks


Also a ? for you Aussies that appears to be at least partially validated by Ssar's post. Does anyone in Australia drink Fosters, or is it considered to be the Schmiddt or Glick's of Australia? We got into an argument one night in the bar about this. I claimed it was just a clever advertising campaign.

Yeah, Foster's Lager is widely considered by the general population to be a weak, pissy beer.

It used to be more widely drunk by general folks 15 or so years ago much earlier in it's history (but still not huge).
Nowadways it is rarely stocked on tap (in kegs in the cool rooms etc) at most clubs and pubs.

I actually drank it a few times in a strong shandy when I was underage (half foster's, half lemonade (that's a sweet clear soda for you yanks)) and it was ok then.

It's popularity overseas as a prime aussie beer is completely based on marketing, and aggressive promotion of it about a decade ago as such etc.

VB (Victorian Bitter) and Tooheys New are by far the 2 most popular beers in Australia, and Crown Lager is very widely accepted as the most popular nicer "next bracket" more expensive beer.

Has anybody tried Pig's Ass? It is usually sold right along with Moose Drool. Word of advice. . .never ever ever mix the two, or if you do, make sure you don't switch between the two. It can get ugly :)

Edit: If you get a chance, try Lightning Boy. It is a microbrew from Bozeman MT area that is pretty damned good :)

When I used to drink heavily, I loved Red Devils, Long Island Iced Tea, and Blackberry Brandy mixed with lemon iced tea. As for beer, I liked to drink Corona and Heineken. Loved peach frozen margaritas with a sugar rim on hot summer days.

I rarely drink these days, but I like I nice glass of sweet red wine from time to time and vodka crans.

I didn't know there was a US made Absinthe. Thought it was illegal to produce here. All the stuff i have had is European. Actually my roomate spends like anywhere from $80-200 to import his Absinthe. He's had so many different kinds from Spain, Italy, France, Sweden, Switzerland...i lost track of all the stuff he's burned thru. Presently he is finishing off his 4th bottle of Absinthe Cannibus from somewhere in Europe.
Just don't drink the stuff straight. Man what a burn.
