Default Under appreciated beer styles

Hey guys and gals. I know there is a thread on most under appreciated individual beers, but the search function didn't show one for most under appreciated styles. So, what have you? I say schwarzbier!

Anything that is low alcohol. Even if Schwarzbier is rarer than most, many get good reviews. Bitters virtually never get good reviews. American adjunct lagers don't either, but I can kinda understand that one. At least bitters taste good.

My favorite is the "Scavenger Ale" that uses whatever you have leftover from previous recipes. Just balance the malt & hops and style be dammed.

I have brewed some very tasty beers this way.

I really love to see a mild in brewpubs and tap rooms. Surly had one on tap when I was there (Minneapolis) and it's really a great style that most people don't even think about.

The Sprecher pub in the town over from me has a mild on tap that blew me away the first time I tried it. I think English styles in general get the shaft when compared to American, Belgian or German styles.

There was an Aleheads podcast a where they were talking about this exact question, and that was the one they all agreed on. I don't think I've ever even HAD a mild.

I second the schwarzbier. My neighbor who's "a dark beer guy" (read Guinness) never heard of the stuff! Needless to say he loved the couple bottles of Köstritzer I gave him.

I've had 1 commercial version at World of Beer (forget if I even liked it) and Orfy's Mild, Reapers Mild and Reapers Mild with different yeast. Very nice style.

Southern Brown is great style to drink it is a great session beer. I have heard no one makes a commercial brew of this in the US.
