i'm enough of a beer snob to know yes, the bass is out of place. however, that stuff is good. i don't care what anyone says. it sucks the bar up the street from work no longer has it on tap. but they have bbc steel rail and sam adams boston lager + whatever seasonal brew matches the time of year. so it's almost forgivable.

pretty much everything important i ever learned about beer i learned from this place:
The Moan and Dove :: Amherst, MA - Home




i've probably only ever had about half those beers (and consequently not finishing the list in a year's time is why i don't have a mug with my name on it), but that place is great. best thing about living in amherst. too far away now i've tried most of the belgian whites and goldens on there, and truly hate them. let's see...beer with oranges in it? no. beer with oranges and cloves? DEFINITELY no. same reason i don't like magic hat...#9 tastes like it has flowers in it. the oatmeal stouts are quality. actually, i probably like those better than the chocolate stout. dogfishhead ipas are tasty. yeah, i like beer.



i used to like guinness. back when i was afraid to try new things, i was served way too many of them at the above establishment to the point i actually asked the bar tender why he hadn't cut me off already. he said me and my buddy were still making a lot of sense, even if we were talking very loudly, and gave me another drink. that wasn't when it became where i could never drink the stuff anymore. that was another bar, another time. and even though it was several years ago, i still don't think i could face another pint ever again.

Just beer from a small, independent brewery. Often owned and operated by a handful of people who are very passionate about beer (more akin to a vineyard whereas the big breweries operate more like big softdrink manufacturers would). In my experience, they tend to have more interesting flavours than the big ones

I've never been a huge fan of beer I dunno, in my mind it just doesn't taste all that great (though if I had to choose, dark beers are the way to go), and if I'm looking to get drink on, I much prefer liquor (typically rum + coke)...

^ lol
I love beer. I brew my own, and especially love trying new specialty beers & microbrews. Two that I have in my fridge right now are Hoptimum from Sierra Nevada and Double Bastard from Stone:

I'm not exactly a fan of beer. I tried Bud Light with Lime once and it made me want to puke. Heineken wasn't too bad, and I tried a local hefe-weizen that was so-so. The only beer I've liked so far is Guinness Extra Stout.

Wow zombie thread back from the dead! I haven't been drinking very much beer lately, but I see that 3 and a half years ago I posted that I liked a beer I've now completely forgotten about.

but those pubs, and more importantly, bartenders who take pride in their pour? who take the time to do it the right way, give it the proper time to settle, and hand you a perfectly poured pint with a rich, creamy head? those are some tasty ass pints of guinness.
I think it's the pour and the lines. If they're not serving enough (turning over fresh inventory) and cleaning the lines properly, taste is compromised. I've had beautiful pints in the states and in Ireland. They care more about that one brand in Ireland so your odds are better. You can tell by looking at the head if its a good pint. If it looks like Root Beer foam you better walk away.
