I don't like lager is what I really meant!

It all tastes like fizzy piss to me. Not that I've ever tasted fizzy piss.

Guinness is my drink of choice. Probably as far from lager as you can get in a beer.

@suchfreinds. Rolling Rock is basically my favorite beer to drink on the weekends. Fucking cheap and delicious.

Have you ever tried a dark lager?

I love them. They're much better than the British/Australian/American lagers that I've drunk in the past. I'm talking about San Miguel, Peroni, Heineken, Becks etc.

Agree! Most of them are skunky smelling and bland tasting at best. The only decent European lager I've had are a few German pilsners, like Bitburger.

Agreed but such is a matter of taste as with all beer. A lot of Central Americans really dig that Euro style and so they also produce those metallic tasting Heinekin tasting beers, like eating out a chick with a yeast infection if you ask me, but then again, some people are freak-a-lic like that

For me Pilsner is the way to go for German beers that aren't Bavarian ales, though sometimes I can handle a St Pauly Girl, the mellowest of the Euro lagers. I prefer Belgian styles, while England has some truly delightful ales, Brits have a taste for bitter malts which I'm less into. I like Bass but I'd prefer a great Mendocino or New Belgian ale any day of the week. I do like these exceptionally well also, but they are still a bit bitter and way to expensive sometimes even for special occasion drinking

then you have exceptionally good taste in regards to low class beers. I swear if you did a blindfold tasting test Rolling Rocks in a glass could mix up even the most religiously zealous beer snob. Plus its cheaper even the ghetto fab malt liquors which used to be the drink of choice of Los Angeles until BudLight took over. But good beer is making a comeback in LA, we even have great local microbrews and small spots are increasing their selection.

I'm bereft of decent ales of late. I had something quite nice - tart and dry - a few weeks ago, but couldn't tell you the name. All a bit piss around here. Bloody mockneys.

We only drink lager in public. At home it's Campari with one of those little umbrellas. Skillz, carrot cruncher.

If I'm goin' for a better beer, I normally get some Fat Tire. Blue Moon started tasting like shit after having random pale ales at a bar. Also I think my last beer at a bar was a Brooklyn Lager? Not sure, it was a dark beer and it was pretty tasty.

New Belgian is perhaps one of the few reliable, commercial Ales available popularly in the US market. There are often some diverse beer selections, but American beers use the term "ale" wrongly and interchangeably with American pale and amber lagers. New Belgian is a consistent brewery of quality ales you can trust. If the brewery doesn't say Germany or England or Colorodo and it says ale be careful, the term is highly abused to the disgrace of people with good taste in beer

I detest Fat Tire. Detest it. There are so many better brewers in the States. Jesus. Flat Tire is lame, bland, boring.

Best ones: Flying Dog, Three Floyds, Bells, Victory, sometimes Sierra Nevada depending on the brew (Celebration, Bigfoot), Smutty Nose, Rogue, to name a few.

Fat Tire is just a notch above Budweiser. Seriously.

I'm drinking this right now cuz it was part of a multi pack that was practically free. its actually quite good. dark, thick and malty like a craft Porter, but more floral and less bitter. Reminds me of a Pyramid Snow Cap Winter Ale which are actually quite good, and I don't taste a bit of coconut..

All those you mentioned are not necessarily available in a bad selection pinch hit, and further, while Sierra Nevada is cool, I find it a very yeasty IPA style and can only drink 12z, the 24z are almost a heinekin.. Also you seemed to have missed my point entirely. Whether or not you like New Belgian beers or not, they are one of the few commercially available beers in the US which are ACTUAL ALES as opposed to American light lagers. There is such a world of difference between even a mediocre ale and a superb lager when ale is preferred.
You can call Fat Tire boring, but please don't compare it to budweiser again, that is just a useless hyperbole bordering on trolling

This is a wild beer. Dark as shit, literally. The first beer I ever enjoyed warm better than cold. At first it had way to much bite like sour wine, even though it smelled quite floral like good hops. But as it warmed, the flavor exploded. Quality texture, excellent almost intellectual kind of buzz.

not bad, everything, weed and beer included, from Humbolt County is always ridiculously good. This beer is like a Humbolt hopped craft wheat beer version of Red Stripe island style lager. Fairly good, but its called "spiced" which gave me the impression it would be a blue moon style spiced ale, but it was more like a Humbolt Craft beer Pacifico

It tastes nothing like any other lager I've had. It has a nice malty, almost a slight chocolatey flavour but it's not really bitter and isn't really fizzy like Stella or other lagers. It looks more like a dark ale when it's in a glass.
