Default Trying some stuff.

Went to the liquor store (fairly limited selection here).
Picked up a sampler pack and a couple sixers.





The ESB was really good, had that last night.
The Hobgoblin was good, didn't really know what to expect though, it's not my favorite style, very malty, coffee, chocolaty. Exremely rich and velvety.
The Lunar Ale is similar to the Hobgoblin only a bit more toned down.
I'm drinking the Oktoberfest right now, more bitter to it, lighter color than the Lunar/Hob. Like this style a bit better.


I was out to get as many different styles I could easily to do some learning.

I really like Sierra Nevada Pale.
Anyone able to give some insight to other beers/styles that I might enjoy.

Where in Iowa are you? There's got to be a better selection than that somewhere.

I'm sure there is more at the store, but not really sure what I'm looking at or for.
Im in Waterloo.

I bought the Boulevard sampler is because:
1: It was a sampler
2: I really like the Wheat
