I nominate Rolling Rock, and St. Pauli Girl Dark.

When I was a new soldier, it was Piels and Ballantine, along with Rolling Rock. I will not drink any Mexican beer, no matter how good it may be----

steel reserve good?

maybe good for slamming when you're 18 years old, or have to go to the quickie mart with a hand full of nickles and dimes, but that shit does NOT taste good. My list usually depends on my drinking mood and the weather. On cold rainy days I prefer brown ales, on warmer days I like a nice cold pacifico or a coors.... but you don't have to twist my arm to get me to drink almost anything except for the likes of steel reserve, ol e, mickey's or any other malt beer that you have to fight to get down and will make you it's bitch the next day.

It's called BEING A MAN!!!! I don't get hangovers, I don't get beer shits, I get a bit dehydrated, but nothing a little water, Mt Dew, or more beer can't fix. You drink certain beers based on your mood? Do you also hold up a pinky and sip it while listening to Enya? I personally haven't noticed much of a taste difference between any of the lager style beers except Sam Adams Boston Lager. I don't concern myself with the nuances of the aromas and hoppes and whatever else the sophisticated types pay attention to. SR tastes like Budweiser tastes like Tecate tastes like Sapporo. However, the liquor store guy (Or to put it in SGC memberspeak, The Purveyor of Wines, Liqeurs, and Spirits) did warn me that High Gravity is homeless guy beer and holy shit was that bad. I've found that my tastes run toward the cheaper beers, but that was just rigoddamndiculous.

drinking mood

means if I'm going to drink a six pack I can drink a heavier ale. If I'm going to put back an 18 pack over the course of the night with a fifth of tequila and whisky shots, I'll go for a domestic or lighter mexican beer. And as for hangovers, you must not drink enough. Man up. I never got them either when I was younger but since I have gotten a little older they make me feel like ebears coin purse after your dad pulls an marathon on him.
By the way, my SGC membership was revoked for setting their lanes on fire. I "accidentally" let some tracers loose from the M1A and they ignited the powder that collects between slabs of concrete on the floor. I still have a few friends working there, so I can still go in as long as one particular guy isn't working, but no official membership.

I got kicked off an M2 range for trying to cut down trees with the gun outside my sector of fire. Not the same, but still cool.

This is what happens when you reach that "male of a certain age catagory" (not to be confused with some dumb tv show ive never seen)I'm talking basic geezer here..
1) your wife buys the beer
2) your wife shops at wallmart
3) your wife doesnt drink beer
4) your wife buys Milwalkees best light CAUSE II'S CHEAP!!
I guess if i didn't like it i could complain, i think a lot of us ALPHA types melow as we age, getting my way is saved for the important things in life. I like it fine, and i like never having to count how many beers i have left, or if a cold one is in the refrigerator.
To any comments that the Edwards are cheap, my response is were frugal or possibley frugel were one of those..

Florence is our "big apple" of the ten prisons in AZ its the largest, and has two seperate prisons with 5 units each. It has an old range that was used from the 1940's and a new one built in the 90's.. way upscale, this was durring the time we transistioned to glocks and changed over to peace officer standards, so it had shoot no shoot discresinary areas built in..
Anyway they had made the mistake of using hay bailes to seperate some of the pistol and rifle areas (down the lanes not as berms obviously) and we had a supervisor class on crowd control. We used a 40mm single shot that looks somewhat like a M79 blooper, but all metal. I was a Sgt at the time and was demonstrating diffrent teargas rounds and i managed to put one of the "hop/skip" type that jump all over and shoot gas everywhere into a haybale.. The result, after we all stoped laughing, was being renamed Sgt "hotshot"..

Beer

Finally a topic I can comment on. I started drinking Natural Lite only because my eldest teenage son (that was stealing my beer) hated it. Stlll have it 20 years later. Anyone remember Spuds? I unually drink Miller Lite when out as Natural isn't often available. I tried Bud Select at the Colts game a couple of weeks ago & liked it. About 5 years ago in Europe I tried Stella. This was surprizingly good, even though it's not a special beer in Europe. BTW, I found it at the Denver airport bar a couple of years ago. The waitress told me that Coors was importing it. Much like women, they are all good. Some just better than others!

It's too late for me, save yourself.

I'd try to find some Shiners if you like dark German style beers. Not sure if they sell them in Az, Runaway. They seel them in Colarado now so they might be in Az.

Like "not good, but not bad", "okay", "decent", and so on, but Then I'd have to get into all the different nuances of taste and then I'd have to start all over and.....that might not be a bad idea, actually. Nah. I've found a few website devoted to beer tastes and ratings and whatnot, but I think people try to be too sophisticated. It seems like a crime to say you actually like cheap American beer, but I do. Then again, as I've put in other comments, I ride my quad in shorts and flip flops, spraypaint my 1600 dollar M4/M68 setup, and take a dremel tool to my Glocks. Guess I'm just not high-class, huh?

I hated it

It was the second worst beer on my list, after Guiness. I assume that new Castle makes other types, but the Brown Ale I tried was terrible. I am also thinking that I am not an "ale" guy, as the brown ale and pale ale are both on my bad list. I think lager is the kind for me.

Budweiser is a lager

and I love it. Bud is the standard by which I judge all others. Some are better, most are not. I think so far, my favorite beer is Natty Ice. I am going a bit overboard with the beer tasting, as I have tried all these brands over the past couple months, and many of them were purchsed as 12 or 18 packs for the taste testing. I've had A LOT of beer since I started this. Where's an Old Chicago's when you need one?

for lousy beer. Though I don't drink that kind of slime except to be a courteous guest I have to admit Bud is better than some.
When I was in 'Nam about all we could get was Bud, Vietnamese waitress had a hard time pronouncing it. Sounded Kinda like Boodweeir.
Whe worst I've tasted in the past 12 months was Budweiser Ale. Tasted like light machine oil.

But the wife says if I keep drinking beer, I have to go with light, because my gut's getting too big. Bitch. Oh well, I like Natty Light. I'll talk at ya later, gotta get to bed. My new hood is coming in tomorrow between 7 and 9. WOOHOO, one more part down in my list to create a 425 HP daily driver diesel. G'night.

Alright, 37 beers

One more tonight, then a 40 of King Cobra tomorrow night (I count malt liquor as beer. Is it?),then off to find more brands. Do they still make Keystone? I don't recall trying that one.

Did some "time" at Wiesbaden in 69, they flew me from great lakes ortho ward to Iceland in a full cast, foot to groin.. icelands POD (plan of the day) was sunrise at like 1100hr and sunset at like 1115hr. Anyway the cast didnt work so they shiped me to Wiesbaden AF hospital.. WA HA... this boy was in heaven.. Bub was OIC of a little sig corp detachment down in Wurtzburg, i spoke german. had hair down to my ass (wearing nam ribbons by then and might have had just a "smidgen" of an attitute) anyway my sister n law was deutisch and her father was a pow from the eastern front.. For those who served in Germany post WWII ever notice how they ALWAYS were on the eastern front.. at any rate. i had some old glasses i had brought home and stiill have, WOW i had forgoten koningbacher.. This was the flip top bottle suff, had a ciramic cap on a close mechanism like a mason jar.. This really was superb beer.. even better than milwalkees best light...

molson ice

only had it once, from what I remember, it was another piss beer.

We used to get stones back in KS cause they came in 30 packs (where most others only came in 24). It used to make me spew hot lava out my ass the next morning. Here in AZ you can get 30's of a lot of stuff

I've liked both Canadian beers so far. But I've also liked both jap beers too.

Not as good as Shiners but I really enjoy the low carbonation, less flatulence and mouth farts...

But I have to finish up what's left in the fridge. I'm dreading that Bud Light Wheat. Nasty stuff.

So, up to 44 brands

That Sam Adams Double Bock is weird. It tastes terrible, but actually has a decent aftertaste. And it's 9.5% alcohol. It'd be a good beer to drink if my tastebuds are already numb from other beer.

I've disliked all three types I've tried. I guess my tastebuds just don't have any sophistication to them.

Beers in Germany

I was there year and a half ago, went to many restaurants and was very surprised. I expected there to be many dark beers to choose from, but that wasn't the case. the most common was a "Bitt" (Bitterburger) which is really more of a typical pale ale kind of beer like a Henry Weinard. It wasn't overly alcoholic, just kinda typical. The reader boards had a pervasive sign that said "Bitte ein Bitt" Please (give me) a Bitt.

I've found that I like lager beers more than most others. I don't even know what a bock beer is, I just know that the Sam Adams Double Bock tastes just like Jack Daniel's. I'm not a whiskey guy, so it was not good.

When in the Nam, we could only get Hamms and PBR, so I developed a taste for Budweiser simply because I could not have 1. So on my return I consumed a great deal of Bud, for bout 6 months. Now I buy a 12 pack of Bud for memorial day here at the lake, and usually have
at least 3 left come labor day. I do not drnk a lot of beer .

I'm up to 50 kinds

And most are cheapo. I guess it's true that you can take runawaygun out of the trailer park, but you can't take the trailer park out of runawaygun. DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT, EBEAR!! I know what you're thinking with that last line, but don't bother.

Landshark lager is pretty durned good. Still not like Natty Ice or Steel Reserve, but better than Budweiser. It's good stuff, Maynard.

Landshark doesn't have anything like that. Greg, you old bastard, this is Guns Lot. I would hope a "best shot ever" post stays at the forefront.

my origins

ok well im 16 and from about the farthest north part of minnesota and plan on joining the USMC when i graduate HOOAH! In my 16 years ive been alive ive been drinking beer for 14 i had my first taste of this magical elixir when i was 2 when my dad was trying to fuck with me i liked it so much i took the bottle off the work bench and walked off i came back 5 minutes later with an empty bottle and drunk as shit! ive been tasting all kinds evers since even if it meant just stealing a swig off of somebodys. AND BY FAR THE WORST ive tried i experienced last night at a party was Keystone Light we had this guy get a 24 case and only had 20 bucks so we told him to get Keystone he came back with lighti had a total of 2 till i couldnt drink it anymore i went and grabbed a bottle of Ron Diaz spiced rum slammed about a quarter of it to chase it, also the worst rum ive ever tried, but if i had to say what one of my favorites would be Leinenkugels anyone heard of it dont travel much so dont know if they have everywhere. i am over 75% german and have turned into quite the Avid beer drinker and im going to continue my search for the best in the world any recomendations??

I like Keystone Light

But I had another tall boy of Steel Reserve last night and it was definitely not as good as the first. I'll try another one, best two of three sorta thing, to decide where on ly list it remains

Okay, check that last.

I thought I'd had Keystone Light recently, but it's not in my lst. Guess I better buy some after work tonight.

Keystone, Coors, Bud, PBR, Michelob, Milwaukee's Best. They all taste identical to me. I think it's just the fact that I'm not trying to be some stuck up beer snob and I realize I'm not fancy, so I don't try to invent various aromas and nuances and yadda yadda yadda when I'm drinking cheap beer. I am starting to enjoy the amber ales more though. i thought I was just a lager guy, but maybe there is some hint of sophistication in me somewhere. WOO HOO, I'M ALL CULTURED AND SHIT!!!

Dude!

You need to quit siphoning gasoline, it is fucking up your taste buds......I am a "bottom feeder" when it comes to beer, but seriously, keystone is not in the running, no matter which of my "low life friends" you ask......."high life", "low life"......Bud is the man and steele's are for when you want to get "fucked up", or a bottle of rum.

Still not there, greg.

But I understand your fascination with response levels to our posts. I'm not impressed with this post having gone this long, I'm impressed with the fact that it has stayed on topic for more than the first two comments. Shows what a bunch of fuckin lushes we have here, huh? Ah, life is good.

I've got 14 years in. I'm on the downhill side of the army. I'm the present. I worry about the future, probably just like my leaders worried when they saw me come in.

keystone

is made by coors and when fundage used to be tight when i used to imbibe (drink) i would buy keystone or busch light.not an anheuser buch fan but cheap was the name o the game.my normal everyday beer was coors light.got used to it because everyone around here drinks it.i would rather drink piss than drink bud or bud light.

I drank natty light for years, that was all I could afford as an unmaried father of three, read 'single income', no support.

anyhoo, I have done better lately so I can drink Bud, I think that a step in the right direction.

My ex- father in law was a Colorado native and he tried to sell me on Coors...no go, don't like it nor keystone......to each their own, bro.

I like the in-between.

I hate light beer for the most part, but real dark, heavy beer is also bad. I'm a lager guy for the most part. I just realized I forgot one. Gotta fix it. 58 beers.

Well, iguess you get set in your ways.
The most put down beers are my favorites.
Miller lite, Keystone light and Natural light.
How many you up to runs?
If you want "true" bottom of the barrell, try Lone Star or Pearl.

Nothing new so far.

I stalled for a bit and am drinking Natty light now. There are a lot of single bottle unkown brand beers here, but I've gone through just about all the big brands that I want to.

redhook

Run,
have you tried any of the beers from the redhook brewery. THey are a "microbrew" that is owned by bud. A lot of seasonal ales. Good to add to your list. Then there is Gordon Biersch (sp) they are a restaurant chain that specializes in german style beer. Free tasting, the beer comes in shot glasses, but they give you 5-6 different beers to try.

I saw a beer in seattle called single wide ale. If I wasn't going to Hawaii on thursday, I would try it and report. Going on a tour of the Kona brewery when I am on the big island.

They have a beer around the world tour. That'd be fun. I think I'll start on the single bottles. There are an awful lot of different ale, but I've only found a couple of those worth drinking. Oops. One more, Caguana.

I'm over 60 beers.

This would have been a lot cheaper if I'd started tasting wines instead. I've found exactly two that I can stand.

Three days of brush cutting and pulling weeds by hand in 95 degree heat at 60%+ humidity really dehydrates the shit out you. I'm only two Budweisers in and my lips are numb. I learned a good formula:

Hard Work + High Heat + Cheap Beer = Really Cheap Drunk.

Now granted, Budweiser isn't the cheapest beer out there, but it's cheaper than my usual Landshark.

Terrible. I hated it. Almost as bad a beer as Newports are a cigarette. Gotta add that one. There are more that I've tried since starting this list, but I can't think of them right now.

Kirin Ichiban sounds kinda zipperhead-ish, right? Nope. Brewed by Anheuser-Busch in California. Oh well. It's still good.

Up to 65 beers

Again, a beer that sounds like an asian beer, Yuengling, but it's made in PA. It's good stuff. And you people are a bunch of fucking drunks. My beer topic is one of the most discussed topics on this site, and has done the best about staying on topic. We can't stay on topic when discussing guns, but goddamnit, nothing stops us from discussing beer. I love you bastards.

Asian beer

Around the holidays (Chinese new year) my wifes relatives send a dozen cans of Harbin beer as seen here: http://www.travelblog.org/Photos/1252672 From what I am told, it was the first beer to be brewed in China although I find that hard to believe considering China's 5000 year history and they started brewing Harbin beer in 1900.

Shit Runs, I would send you a can to try if you weren't holed up in GITMO!

Definitely not a fan of Mickey's

Depending on my money situation here are some of my top beers - not in any specific order (and bravo on such a long lived flourishing thread!)

1. Kilt Lifter Scottish Ale
2. Shock Top
3. Arrogant Bastard
4. Miller High Life
5. Celtic Brown
6. Smuttynose IPA "Finest Kind"
7. Chama River Brewing Jack Rabbit IPA
8. Marble Brewery Marble Red
9. Samuel Adams Hallertau Imperial Pilsner
10. Samuel Adams Winter Lager

A couple of these are local breweries that don't sell outside the state.

Beer

Much like women, jeff rarely has met a beer he doesn't like - some are just better that others. Different times require different beers:

1965 - 16oz Hamms - $ .15 in the NCO club.
1985 - Natural Light - bacause my eldest teen son hated it.
2002 - Stella - available in many countries in europe.
1975 - present - Miller Lite - it's available in about every bar
2010 - Bud Select - Tried it at the Colt's game - not bad bit $6.50 ea is really bad!

I don't change brands much. I've got this deal w/ my digestive system. I don't play tdicks on it & it doesn't play tricks on jeff!

It's too late for me, save yourself.

More Beer

BTW I love this topic. I believe it has stayed on topic all the way through. I just finished reading all the way through it and don't remember any off topic posts. I am smart enough to realize that most folks have a beer that they particularly like (if they like beer). Runaway, I do not understand how you can drink Landshark. I tried it once and I think I drank about three sips to be sure I DIDN'T like it. The first was to see if I liked it then three more to be sure that I didn't. I'm glad that I was getting ready to leave the bar that night as I left about half a beer on the table and I wasn't even sorry I did. But then again, I like Bud Light, and I'm sure you don't understand how I can drink that. I have tried most of the "main line" American beers here, Coors, Coors Light, Miller Light, MGD, Michelob, Shiney Hiney (Heineken), probably misspelled that one. Budwieser, Miller High Life, Michelob Ultra, Lone Star, Pearl, PBR, Old Milwalkee, Milwalkee's Best, Milwalkee's Best Light, Shiner Bock, Shits (oops Schlitz). I have also drank several different beers from overseas don't remember most of them but I do remember San Miguel from the Phillipines. Those beers are in no particular order and if I was REALLY wanting a beer to drink I would probably drink just about any of them. I didn't care for Old English 800, Colt 45, or Guiness, but I'm not going to say I'll never drink them. I won't buy them or several of the others on the list unless I don't have any choice. I didn't get hangovers until I was about 30 and for some reason I started getting them.

Now, I'm sort of like cbxjeff on this. I have met few beers I flat out didn't like but I have the same agreement with my digestive system as he does his. I have also tried some of the wheat beers and didn't care too much for them either. I do have a saying that I'm fond of and still use it, "I like three kinds of beer, Hot, Cold, and Free!" But like I said, I don't try to play tricks on my digestive system too much. I don't like the after effects. The digestive system usually wins. If it doesn't i usually wish it had. Hope you become a beer conniseur (sp). I hope you find a light beer that you like well enough to drink when you get home.

BTW, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for your service to our country!

Freedom ain't Free, so thank a Veteran when you see one. They are the ones who have protected the freedoms that you enjoy!

I don't know why it's not up there. I don't remember if I liked it or not. I better do some more research tomorrow evening. I had Modelo Especial, and I don't think I liked it, but I'm not sure.
