That's what the airbags are for!
« on: June 06, 2008, 06:27:15 am »

So, recently I've been frequenting a few sites designed for beer connoisseurs, in particular beeradvocate.com. The common theme in every site is that the top hundred beers or so are all very dark lagers with ABV of 10 percent or higher. Sure, I like the occasional stout here and there, but most of these beers don't even sound that good. Drink them is comparable to eating a bagel or something. So, I'll give you my top ten beers in terms of taste, drinkability and price. Feel free to share any of your favorite brands. I'm always looking for more.

1. St. Pauli Girl (Germany)   Taste 8.5   Price 6.0    Drinkability 9.0

2. Great Lakes Lager (USA)  Taste 9.5   Price 5.0  Drinkability 6.5

3. BitBurger (Germany)   Taste 8.0   Price 4   Drinkability 8.0

4. Guiness Extra Dark (Ireland)  Taste 8.5  Price 4  Drinkability 5

5. Blue Moon (USA)  Taste 8.0  Price 5  Drinkability 7

6. Modelo (Mexico)  Taste 7.0  Price 8.0  Drinkability 9.5

7. Stella Artois (Belgium)  Taste 8.5   Price 3.5  Drinkability 7.5

8. Leinenkugel's (USA)  Taste 7.5  Price 4   Drinkability 7.5

9. Miller High Life (USA)  Taste 6.5  Price 9.5  Drinkability 8.5

10. Heineken (Netherlands)   Taste 7  Price 4    Drinkability 9

My beer preference seems to change month-to-month. I'm lucky that I live near a package store that has a huge selection (most of which I still haven't tried). That being said, I enjoy the following brews:

Hoegaarden
MGD
Guiness
Dos Equis
Hofbrau Munchen
Molson Canadian
Grolsch
Warsteiner
Newcastle

Moosehead? I think they were talking about beer.

In all seriousiness, I don't really drink much anymore, but I used to
enjoy a Guiness every now and again. It's fun to drink something you could
darn near walk on.

"McEwan's Scotch Ale" should be on your list.
Brewed by: Scottish Courage LTD.Est 1856 {By appointment to her majesty Queen Elizabeth II brewers.}

I'm not a big beer drinker myself, and tend to stay away from the watered down bitter beers. McEwans's is in a spectrum all its own. Its super rich, slightly sweet and smooth. When you drink it, you get the distinct feeling that you could literally live off of this beer. The care and quality that goes into its production is obvious at first taste. I highly recommend you try it. 

1. McEwan's Scotch Ale (Edinburgh Scotland) Taste 9.7   Price 3.0 (Expensive)   Drink-ability 9.3

Isn't Mythos a candy? Or a Linux-based TV viewer? ... It's a beer too?
