I've had more of a hopstorm in a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

Tart and sour are not the same thing.

I had a beer called Lija's Hellhound Brown. The description on the pack said that it was a "smooth and luscious brown ale". I took one drink and almost spat it out. This beer was SUPER bitter. I looked on the website and it said that the brown ale is 90 IBUs (@ like 6% I think). What the hell is smooth and luscious about that?!

"This crap is the KING OF BEERS for a reason! LONG LIVE THE KING!!!"

I'm still chuckling over that one

yeah re: budweiser, actually i can play beer pong with lambics. however, i choose to never ever play beer pong.

the budweiser "reviews" show why a persons choice in beer says a lot about their personality in general in many cases

currently drinking bum wine that says "Jinro housewine is the benefit of good grape, sunshine and winemakers of Spain which made rich flavored sweet-edged wine". it tastes like very cheap manischewitz

here's a discount light beer from korea

"Cafri is South Korea’s high-end premium beer, launched in July 1995. With its chic transparent bottle and smooth taste, Cafri appeals to young customers. Cafri also provides the differentiated taste of Cafri Lemon with 4.2% ABV to those who seek something new and exciting. Cafri inspires the targeted younger generation to break out of their routine lifestyle and experience extraordinary freedom, making Cafri truly target-relevant. Cafri continues to deliver a free, lively, contemporary and unbound personality. "

this beer is more than just a drink, its a lifestyle

My favorite one is when you ask someone, "Hey, what kind of beer do you like?" and they respond, "Well, you know, I like ales and lagers." So you like every single type of beer in existence? I may be wrong, but I don't think that's possible. Everyone has different tastes and some beers are going to offend your palate, so an answer like that tells me you don't know much about beer, which is fine, but at least admit it and don't try to BS me into thinking you're a connoisseur.

I went to BJ's last weekend and tried that one and was extremely disappointed. I did follow it up with an Oud Bruin in a bottle that was fantastic, though. Really cheap, too.

You sir, have missed out on countless hours of fun. I've played water pong and drank whatever I want on the side.

Competition is always enjoyable. Always.
