My favorite is a really hoppy India Pale Ale!
But then again, a nice dark stout is good too.
Hoppy or malty... yum!
Not a big fan of fruity beers or wheat beers,
But about all I won't drink is Budweisers or Natural Light.

I tend to prefer red or brown beers (but not Guiness, ). But, I'm not a big beer drinker. I also like Scandinavian and German beer and Tsing Tao. The best beer I ever tasted was called Viking Beer. It's Icelandic, but they don't export it. I have discovered that I like beer better if I have it with a meal and akvavit.

I'm more of a wine drinker and not a big beer connoisseur. If I'm eating something that calls for beer - curry, for instance - I generally like a nice crisp lager. Premium Grain Belt, which is local, is refreshing and really hits the spot. And when in the mood for ale, New Belgium Fat Tire and Goose Island Honkers Ale are a couple of favorites.

Working in NYC for over thirty years, vacationing in the midwest, the northern west coast of the US from San Fransisco through Washington, and Canada from Nova Scotia to Vancouver, as well as living and vacationing in Germany and Italy leads me to conclude that, while tastes may differ:
- Some people have a very parochial view about beer preferences
- beer at or near the site of its origin may taste quite different than the exported versions.
After half a century+ of study, I think good beers taste best when they are frish vom fass and kellerkalt.

My husband likes Moosehead or Molson. I like Newcastle Brown Ale. Nuts, now I'm thirsty for beer. I'll need to go pick some up. You folks are bad influences. =o)

I enjoy my own home made beer. Been making beer for forty years. When I'm out I'll order a premium Czech lager.
