    Yeah that's weird. Not sure it's beer though.

    I saw Carlsberg advertising it as the world's possible best beer. I had one on a Malaysion Airkines flight. I only drink, no wine or spirits, only low alcohol beers. It was the worst beer I'd ever tasted.
    I think the best beers are Miller Chill and Budweiser.

    I'm ever so slightly dismayed that people would inflict this on otherwise innocent beer, but science marches on. I thought the over-hopped experiments of hand-crafting "artisans" might run out of steam (pun slightly intended) but no, this is not proving out.

    I like some of the plain old German and English stuff, turns out that's where my long lost cave people came from.

    So what, yep, really.

    Yeah, I'm glad we don't all like the same stuff. Long live variety! I'm happy to drink the several hundred varieties I enjoy and happy again I have the choice.

    and happy for the more adventurous - y'all can have all that dung-smoked whale testicle beer all to yourselves!

    I feel your pain. I'm a massive fan of Porter, but it can be hard to come by and sometimes the breweries add unnecessary crap to it like chocolate, coffee or vanilla to spoil it. A decent Porter needs nothing added.

    Lol. I love Micros. I'm in the Northwest. Problem is they're so filling and often high in alcohol content. I do like having a nice beer with dinner or something but if I'm wanting to have several beers over a period of time and not be drunk, I prefer Coors light.

    I remember when it happened to guitar pedals.

    Yeah, it's for the kids.

    Yup, I like heavy beers and dark beers, but I usually have a bunch of Coors light on hand - I call it garage beer; if I'm going to be working in the garage or mowing the lawn, I don't necessarily need to drink 10 imperial stouts, but watery american light beers do just fine for that.

    This is a weird beer that's also gross. A friend got it at a bar and one sip was too much, haha. I like some beers with fruit also, but this idea was not good. Keep it!

    I'd much rather keep some good saisons on hand, which are typically lower ABV than watery American light beers, yet much longer on flavor.

    I like beers that have been produced by brewers with lots of experience, preferably dating back to the 13th or 14th century. Those Belgian monks had it going on. I guess that makes it weird.

    Really, have you had any? I mean in the UK, not imported Newcastle or whatever else makes it stateside.

    I love the country, culture, food, and people (married into a family of 'em, many good friends from all over the island). Whether it's good or not is up to you, but in my experience, beer there is not what most Americans imagine. Low carbonation (off cask generally), very low-ABV*, served only cold-ish/lukewarm. Funny to watch my friends who came over for a wedding be completely disappointed.

    *My friend's pop likes to say that when Stella Artois came to the UK it was called the "fighting beer" or "wife beater" because of its "high" alcohol content... it's 4.8%. Last time I was over I bought a bottle of some beer at an M&S with a dragon on the label; plainly marketed as a "beast" IPA or similar. 5.2% abv and as mild an IPA as I've ever had.
