Beer Connoisseurs: Converge here...NO LIQUOR.

I think the definition of connoisseur shall be of high importance to the basis of this thread.

Quote:
1: expert ; especially : one who understands the details, technique, or principles of an art and is competent to act as a critical judge2: one who enjoys with discrimination and appreciation of subtleties <a connoisseur of fine wines>
By definition, beers such as "Natty Light" are allow to be discussed, but only in the negative demeanor; although, any reviews are welcome, just to keep the thread in an orderly and welcoming manner.

Reviews, suggestions, favorites, overall positive, overall negative opinions are welcome and is the intention of the thread.

BREWERS: Yes, you lovable ****ers...we welcome your recipes, and opinions; PICTURES PLEASE. I love seeing home brew setups. Mine is fairly...pathetic, along with my first and only batch.


Rogue; Dead Guy Ale, is my current weapon of delight.

Anyways, let the discussion begin.


As a thread requirement, ALL posts should include the beer you are currently drinking or have most recently drank.

I'm really hoping that the beer you're talking about actually spells Mississippi incorrectly and you're not really incapable of spelling it.

Most Recently? Honey Moon by Blue Moon.

I've been attempting to find a light, sweet summer beer since it's hot out and I'm a Stout guy usually but they are HEAVY for hot summer days in the sun.

My drink of choice is usually Brooklyn Brewery Black Chocolate Stout or Troegenator Oatmeal Stout.

I think honey moon is drinkable, but not really that good. Brooklyn Brewery Summer Ale was of the same vein, but not as good as honey moon. Hoegaarden Brewery makes a witbier that's so far my 2nd favorite summer beer, with Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat as my top pick.

any other witbiers or maybe a hefeweizen that you would recommend?

edit: relax vinny, he's an idiot

Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat IS good. Much better than Honey Moon, but still not my cup of tea. Little too sweet for me; I think the blueberry flavor is a bit over-powering, but that goes with the summer ale style I suppose. It is probably the best summer style ale I've had though.

I have some Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout I'm having with dinner. Really a great beer all around. No negatives, aside from it being damn expensive. Right at $13 for a 4-pack.

Personally, I think the taste of anything Leinenkugel is nasty for me. I just can't down anything from them, especialyl Honey Weiss.

Last beer I had was Fat Tire, that will never get old for me

St. Arnold Fancy Lawnmower is a nice, light summer beer. I also like Sierra Nevada Summerfest for a good summer lager.

really sweet...tastes like fruit loops or something.


Finally tried Dogfish Head Red & White not too long ago. Was good, but didn't think it was great. Their 90 and 120 minute IPAs are great, though.

Sierra Nevada Summerfest is something I need to try. I haven't tried one of their beers that I haven't liked yet. In fact, their Pale Ale is one of my all time favorites.

Last couple I have drank:
Bell's Oberon
New Belgium Skinny Dip

Both very nice summer beers.

Rouge is okay. I had their American Ale and was kinda disappointed. They get great reviews all over, but I was definitely underwhelmed by their offering.

SN PA is really good, tried the Torpedo IPA Viking? That **** is delicious. I think my favorite all time beer would be Rogue Yellow Snow IPA. To bad I can't find it around me at all. Stone Ruination is a damn good IPA also.

cute. I thought that was good beer too. then I graduated high school.

So I had a choice tonight of the SN summer ale, some organic witbier on special and dogfishhead 90 minute IPA

decided to try the IPA. 9% ABV lol

it is incredibly drinkable but it doesn't have much taste while drinking, and the aftertaste is very bland as well. I am thoroughly unimpressed

I've gotten pretty into Moosehead Light as my standard light beer. It's very drinkable and I'm having a good time with it.

As for wheat beer, Upland's wheat beer has been the best I've had. It's brewed down the road from me so I'm not sure how available it is. It's a bit better than Blue Moon, which I prefer over Leinenkugel's wheat and Shock Top. I've yet to try a wheat beer I didn't enjoy though.

I'd love to try the Honey Moon though. Leinenkugel's honey beer was delightful. I loved the smoothness and the little coating it left on my teeth. Very enjoyable.

What do you guys recommend as far as variety packs? I love grabbing variety packs and seeing what the world has to offer, haha.
