Like my dislike of decaf coffee, I DETEST light beer. It has to be full-flavored with a healthy alcohol content. (for me, the alcohol seems to enhance the flavor) Beers I have enjoyed and do enjoy:

AMERICAN (some of them no longer produced):
Hamm's Waldech (long gone)
Grain Belt
Burgie draft
Olympia
Steel Reserve
Fat Tire
Sam Adams

I LOVE Japanese beer:
Sapporo
Kirin
Suntory

EUROPEAN:
Heineken
Amstel
Bass Pale Ale
Guinness Stout
Watney's Red Barrel

We have some friends that brew and they made an IPA that I really liked. Of course they did something they don't remember during the process and have been trying to replicate it.

I usually drink the Boston lager when I go buy beer.

I love a ginger beer shandy with Indian food. Half ginger beer and half some regular, full strength beer.

We love anything with Ginger, especially fresh! Many Asian (I don't care for that word) cultures use Ginger in so many different ways.
So would Ginger Beer, the soda pop type, taste anything like Ginger Ale? We've been drinking alot of diet Ginger Ale this Summer,and we don't drink that much soda, mostly water here in the middle of the desert.
I found chewy Ginger candies at Trader Joe's that is terrific for digestion/tummy issues.

K-girl, to me, ginger beer is very similar to ginger ale except it has a stronger ginger flavor. Some people get a little tingle in their throats, but it doesn't effect me that way.

Incidentally, if you don't like the term "Asian", what do you use? I figured it's "politically correct" since our Taiwanese nephew-in-law uses it all the time.

I think Asian is a heck of a lot better than some of the names I have heard over the years. Does Archie Bunker come to mind? I cringe when I hear some of them.

I was taught that oriental is for rugs and Asian is for people.

What is the correct term to use?

I am with you AB. Oriental rugs are made in Iran, Turkey Irag as well as other countries. We don't refer to the residents of those countries as being Asian.

In the world I came from they were considered Persian.

I'm so confused, so old and so behind the times, I need a beer!

I personally like Czech beer and I consider it one of the best worldwide. However, there are tons of different beers around the world so you never know. :)
