So the recent Four Loco thread peaked my interest in hearing what other denizens of these forums prefer their beers taste like.The poll will only be in regards to types of beers, but if you want to list specifics, go right ahead, as I will! If you don't like beer, tell us what you do like!
Please keep this civilized, as always!
I personally love me a good quality Porter, however unfortunately I find a good Porter is 1 in a million (exaggeration) as I've tried a number of different ones and the only one I liked was the Founders Porter, whereas the Anchor Porter and Shipwrecked Peninsula Porter seemed kind of flat and lacking in flavor. Beer that is aged in oak barrels from brandy, whiskey, and the like, is also pretty amazing, best beer I've ever tasted was a 2011 Lost Abbey Angel's Share, amazing drink that was! $17 though for a normal-sized bottle, so it was one I hoped would be good. I was pleasantly surprised!
I also like the typical lager, though I think they aren't quite as awesome as the above, same with a stout or draught, like Guinness, who I used to love but ever since I started trying new beers, I have found they're fairly average.
Arrogant Bastard Ale - definitely one not for everyone, as it has a very aggressive taste, however I quite enjoyed it! "Hated by many, loved by few."
No, I don't like any Light/Lite beers, most beers that have commercials other than Guinness and Samuel Adams are garbage to me, to be frank. :P
Would love to get suggestions for some to try, as well!
I realize I'm still not totally versed in every kind of beer, so if there is a kind I should add to the poll, let me know! I will see if I can edit it or have a mod add it, since they're always so nice. :P
