Corona is bitter mexican pisswater ...the lime makes it more tolerable.

Dos Equis is decent beaner swill ...my fave hands down is Sam Adams lager.

Single malt Scotch is awesome, I drink it straight ....but I thought this thread was about beer ....

I never drink hard liquor of any sort. I'm a big guy, and I get mean.

I'm a happy drunk on beer! (Although I rarely imbibe past the point of slight intoxication these days...The hangovers do indeed "hurt more than they used to")

I'm not a fan of Corona. Never was. Corona has a good marketing dept, and that's about it.

Dos Equis is indeed better, but not by much. Simpatico is decent beer, I think it's from Mexico. I haven't had (or seen one) in years.

I've got a couple of bottles of Samuel Adam's Boston Lager in the fridge as I write. I usually drink ales, but when I want a lager more often than not it's a Sam Adams.

I've recently discovered Summit brewing's line of beers out of Wisconsin. Some of the best American beer I have sampled in a long time. I'm going to review their "Extra Pale Ale" later this week.

I've never seen it. Is it domestic or an import?

Default Summit Brewing Company's India Pale Ale

Achtung VNN beerophiles!

Summit doesn't brew good beer.

Summit brews great beer.

I want to get that out of the way right from the start.

The brewery, started in 1986, is located in St. Paul, Minnesota. Saint Paul must be the patron Saint of hops and malt.

I've recently just discovered this brewery, as it's new to my region. I have tried a number of their ales, along with their pilsner offering. They have all been world-class.

Summit Brewing Co's India Pale Ale pours the color of strong Iced Tea in the chilled pub glass. The minimal head is cream colored, and quickly dissipates to a light skim that remains to lace the glass all the way down.

Nice.

The initial aroma is noble hops, (Northern Brewer & East Kent Golding are used for bittering, Dry-hopped with whole hop flower East Kent Golding) spicy and with a trace of citrus. A slight "warm biscuit" aroma is also there.

The taste is full bodied, with the malt playing the perfect subdued-but-there low note for the big hoppy bitterness that finishes Gobi Desert dry. Making you really want another.

This stuff is like crack, without the niggers.

Not that I smoke crack.

It's called a metaphor, you public school graduate bastards.

But I digress.

Mouth feel is very light, (2-row pale malt is used) and non-coating.

6.4% ABV, so like all true IPAs, it packs a noticeable non-Bud Light kick.

12.99 for the "Holiday Pack" that includes 3 India Pale Ales, 3 Extra Pale Ales, 3 Winter Ales and 3 Pilsners.

I love to drink Guinness, but it don't half pile on the pounds. I don't know if you have what we call Real Ale in the US (stuff like bitter beer) but I know you have Guinness. I will be visiting the Orlando FL in mid January and will very soon be sampling large amounts of US beer. I only hope it is better than what I tried on my usual vacations in Spain!

Advice on the best beer in Florida would be greatly appreciated!

In my humble opinion, they don't make a beer in the states. Unless it's micro-brew. IN fact most of us yearn for the day they will get to sit down in a real irish pub and have a nice bitter ale..

Samuel Adams passes for beer. It ain't quality, but it's the best large scale domestic.

This is not good news, IMHO there is huge amounts of great Ales to be found throughout the British Isles and Éire too. Spain was disapointing but it was easy enough to find pubs or bars that sold beer imported from the UK. Guinness is a drink I've never been disappointed with wherever I've drank it, whether brewed in Dublin or London, it is always great, unfortunately it does put weight on yer!

Cheers for the advice Comrade.

Sam Adams is ok, but the idea of paying import prices for mass-produced American beer makes me mad.

I agree. I usually drink Guinness or Bass Ale if I'm drinking beer. But I live in a rural area of Mississippi and the good stuff isn't always available.

I dont really like many mass-produced beers, from here in the US.
Theres a little brewery called Three-Rivers in Farmington NM that makes Hop-Scotch Ale, which is really good, and another somewhat-mass-produced micro called Old Dominion, which is a really excellent barley-wine style beer. Its available more on the east coast, I think.
