If you can, try to get your hands on a Belgium beer called Duvel Puurs. Quite different, but very good. I'm currently working my way through the Weihenstephan range (in particular the few Hefeweissbier ones). Delicious.
I agree whole heartedly...sorry, AMERICAN BEER(Majority)=Weasle pee
Now before I get flamed, there ARE some great american MICRO brews; Searia Nevada, voodoo, petes...

Try Dunkenweizel, oranjeboom, duval, corsen donk, all belgian hefewiezens...

Check out the artwork here. It's actually fairly new (introduced 2002), and award-winning already...but a bit post-GD. And colors start to swim together after a six-pack...

I recently tried a brand called Alpha King, which was recommended to me by a good friend. If you like a good hoppy beer, give that one a shot!

I am challenged with the fatigue and lack of concentration that comes with Lupus. I joined this forum in hopes that I can get ideas for fast, easy and delicious things to eat.

Any beer imported into the U.S. has to be pasteurized, and the alcohol content is controlled. I HATE that! I've had Canadian beer in Canada, and Mexican beer in Mexico, and it is so much better than the swill they export.

Any light beer goes well with me especially in a hot summer day.

I wished I could find a beer that I actually like, with most beers, I end up turning it into a 'red' beer by adding tomato juice for I can not tolerate the after taste. Corona (I know I know... ) is about the only beer that I can consume without tomato juice (although it is good). But it must be ice cold... warm beer just does not go well.

I recently tried SA Summer Ale.... it was ok at first, then I quickly got bored with it. That is it, I get bored with the flavor of beer after the first few drinks!

So anyone any suggestions as to a zesty full bodied beer that will keep me interested?

Me too, Uncle Bob. We discovered it while living in Florida. Pretty pricey around here, though - about $8 for a six-pack.
