I actually liked the Widmer hefe even though most people don't. A great hefe? Nah, but a pretty decent beer. I'm glad I gave Stone another chance. The Stone IPA smelled like soap, but tasted great, and I usually hate IPAs. Very balanced and delicious IMO. The black butte was good, nothing to write home about though. Mirror pond tastes like it's stale/something is wrong with it. Definitely avoiding that one unless its free. The anchor steam was really one-sided to my palate. Too much caramel flavor. A year or two ago when I was really into anything without much hops, I didn't like Anchor Steam. A year later, when I feel like I have a more "developed" palate, I still don't like anchor steam. I don't think I'll write off all steam beer, but at the same time, I'd be very wary of brewing 5 gals of something that might taste similar.
Storm king takes the cake though. When I bought it I was hoping for a good in your face stout, and that's exactly what I got. I see more in my future.

Ommegang Abbey. I'm going to try doing some bottle culturing of the yeast too.

NB Fat Tire, 2 Below, some Miller High Life, maybe a NB Trippel if I feel I don't value my stomach anymore, and the occaisonal pull of Sinful Stout from my kegerator.

Bear Republic XP Pale Ale.

English & American malts, Cascade & Centennial combo. Pretty standard ingredients for a balanced and delicious American Pale Ale.
