Belgian Pale Ale (swmbo's favorite style) seems to be forgotten. Dubbels, Tripels, Saisons, Wits, and Lambics tend to garner most of the attention within the Belgian styles.

I may be biased because I've been researching them for a new recipe, but the lighter Scottish ales seem underrepresented. Comercially, Scottish Lights aren't even exported afaik.

Anything that isn't super high-gravity or aggressively hopped.

I notice that most of these are low ABV styles. This hardly supprises me since every day or two it seems someone makes a post about how to increase the alcohol in there beer. It seems we have are more concerned about the ABV than the taste. I even find myself doing this sometimes. Although I have been trying to stop even looking at the ABV on beersmith when I ammaking a new recipe.

American IPA....




... Hahahhhhhh. I second the notion that low Abv styles are underappreciated. I wish I saw more Kolsches brewed.

This. I'm constantly tempted not to even look at Beeradvocate anymore. Almost every single beer on that top 100 list is an quad, imperial ipa, or imperial stout. None but maybe two or three are south of 8 abv.

I feel about beeradvocate like I feel about rotten tomatoes. A good rating doesn't necessarily mean quality. And top 100 doesn't mean a damn thing. But a bad rating 99% of the time means terrible.

You don't think there's a lot of recognition for stout? Even porter gets a lot of attention.

I would agree with you about lower ABV English styles. I would also include the lower ABV Scottish beers.

Berliner Weisse hands down. Perfect warm weather beer. One day some American brewery will mass brew this, change the name to something more 'merican, market it triple hop brewed and its gonna take over! Or so I tell myself....
