Indeed it is. This is the only light beer I drink. I only like dark beer.

okkk here is a shocker.. I have never tasted beer... actually it kinda stinks to me..
When I was in Washington.. I lived right across a hop field... the hops are actually neat looking when they are growing.. but in the winter ( they harvest them Labor day weekend) it looks kinda bad, cause its just a huge field with poles... and in the fall.. the usually dump the leftover hop stuff, and it fermits in the field and kinda stinks.. too much information?????

Beer, beer, beautiful beer. If beer didn't exist the World would stop turning!

Love the stuff. I'm a bit of a Barney Gumble myself.

Brewed my own for quite a while until DW banned the practice because I would argue with the TV after a couple of bottles (strong stuff)......

Not real keen on 'Bud', but will gulp it if nothing else available. It's about the only US beer I've tasted.


The Board of our Aero Club appointed me Bar Manager - silly sods.

Like appointing Ronny Biggs (the great train robber) Bank Manager of the Bank of England.

Yeah... Lambics are the ones I am talking about. I like drinking them straight... my brother in law thinks I am weird because I do, but oh well... I am weird! Hehe

Count me in.

I've been on a Warsteiner, Bitburger and Beck's Dark kick. But my favorite beer is literally in a class by itself, Duvel Special Ale.

When I first moved to Milwaukee I thought it was the beer capital due to the manufacturing but soon found out that was not true it is due to the consumption. You simply will have a hard time living in Milwaukee if you do not like beer. My son sells Miller and fortunately that is my favorite, Miller High Life. I did not realize how much I liked beer until I was in England for a spell and could not get any good beer. Then there was the time I was on retreat in Mexico and without beer for a long time. There was just enough time at the airport before my flight took off and yes they had Miller right there in Mexico City!

The only thing I have ever liked beer for was killing snails and slugs. Like I've said before, I'm backwards--I'm half Swedish and don't like coffee and half German and don't like beer! My husband likes one now and then though.

Yep, BJCP category 18D! Belgian Golden Strong Ale. When it lists commercial examples of the style, Duvel is the first one mentioned. Love the stuff myself, too!
