The Beer Topic
« on: September 02, 2006, 11:32:33 pm »
You know the deal, its saturday night.

Either you're on the forums, or you're going out, we're all drinking it.

So, what's your favorite ?

Or, what kind of brand you REALLY can't stand ?


I just found a new beer, called Effes, it tastes really good, and fresh, so its just chill for gaming and just chilling out, and not having the heavy beers to drink for a while.

I go with Hobgoblin, with Circlemaster running a close second. Too bad I have to go to Sweden everytime I want to buy them, as the local stores and wine monopoly don't stock 'em.
Another good one is a special brew you only can get on a pub called U Fleku in Prague... damn, now I wanna go back there so I can taste it again.


Least favourite? Hm... prolly Mack (norwegian pale lager), or perhaps Budweiser (weak, watery stuff IMO)

In general, I favour darker types of beer over lighter. (ie ale over lager)

We all love Hobgoblin! It is quite possibly the ultimate beer. Nay, scratch that. It's quite possibly the ultimate beverage.

I want to taste a draft Hobgoblin...

Also, I'm quite the fan of the local microbrewery's beer. They got some damn tasty ales. You will have to taste them all when you come up here, Talhoffer. That's an order. I got a call from your old army captain saying so.

As for bad beer, I'm not much of a fan of most lagers. Some, like Carlsberg, Hansa, and darker lagers (such as bayer beers, whatever they're called in the rest of the world - possibly dunkeln), are good, at least in conjunction with food, but I usually avoid the most common type, pilsner. Specific favourites for non-consumption include the norwegian version of Tuborg (which, I've heard, is a high-quality brew in Denmark) and the prototypical american "beer", namely Budweiser (seriously, what's wrong with you americans? 50 fucking percent of your beer consumption is Bud! Stop it!).

I don't like beer. I know, I'm such a bad finn but I really can't swallow it. It's odd. What I've heard my mother's father was alike. Anything else goes except beer. Funny. I have tried different beer labels but only beer I can occasionally drink (maximum one bottle / year) is called Velkopopovický Kozel, it's  made in Czech.

Somehow, I can't imagine this happening...;) I mean, he felt he had to obtain the permission of his superiors to serve us a glass of champagne with 2% alcohol during New Year's Dinner when we were on guard duty :P

Gravehill: I also was not a beer person until a few years ago, when I found a few beer types I actually liked. To this day I still am extremely selective regarding beers (and most other forms of alcohol, now that I think of it. I don't even touch hard liquor unless it's properly mixed in drinks. Long Island Ice Tea ftw!)

Have I tried forcing some really good whiskey down your throat? ;D

Well, then, maybe I should do so.

Which would be why I am currently drinking a pint of it. SUCKS TO BE YOU.

I am currently debating whether to applaud Fiindil for his good tastes or smite him because he has a pint of it and I haven't.

I guess they cancel each other out or something.

Well, then, maybe I should do so.

Y'see, I'm still at the stage where everything stronger than fortified wine tastes pretty much the same (ie like paint thinner... not that I've tasted paint thinner, but... oh, never mind :P), so forcing good whiskey on me is like throwing pearls before swine.

Ahem..

Personally i like Budweiser.

If you're going towards the more expensive beers such as Desperados, or Corona, i'd say its not worth the money.

They taste good, i'll give you that, but they're just too damn expensive.
