From my mother upon tasting Leinenkugel's Canoe Paddle

"It's not bad, but tastes like those dark beers you drink"

Thankfully there was no olive.
Yeah there's a place here in town that serves gin and tonics with olives, and they don't know there's a non-dirty martini; they put olive juice in EVERY martini!!! Sooo annoying, just stick to beer there. It's a brewpub, so the beer is pretty good.

Was this the same NPR Story that called Blue Moon and Shocktop "gateway beers"?

I'm afraid so... I think maybe they were saying that INBEV/colossal "beer" makers were shooting themselves in the foot on their "crafty" gambit. I did agree with the bit about prominently displaying who actually produced the beer to reduce consumer confusion, but really, who's it gonna stop? The urine-swilling legions (myself included at times of need e.g. a good Olympia after a long hot day at work just feels so damn proletariat) that thought Bud "American Ale" was a bold move aren't likely to be swayed. It's like the guy I gave a few Hefe's to that didn't like them for being "aromatic, perfume-y, and clove-y"(it was a fantastic Hefe), stating that he preferred Blue Moon. This poor boy is from Sussex of all places. I made mention to him of pints of mild and he made a nasty face, like it was gross...so... "in matters of taste there is no debate" I suppose...

I was in our local craft beer area of the store a few months back and over heard this lady talking on a head set to some one saying I'm not seeing any colt45 five minuets later same lady yea I just looked threw all this beer no colt45. I was thinking to my self I should tell her stone arrogant bastard or southern tiers unearthly are close to colt45's but decided good beer shouldn't go to waste

I had an Amberbock in college and was literally the best beer I'd ever had. I went to a Brew Pub a few months later and started appreciating beer, more than Busch Light. And I probably wouldn't have been interested in the brew pub if I hadn't had the Amberbock.

I'd call that a "gateway" beer for me.

I agree with last 2 posters, amber bock was my first real love. Blue moon and Samuel Adams told me that beer could have flavor. Me and my roommate had a tradition of always buying one sixer of amberbock, and one sixer of something new. Got me on that long journey I'm still on today. Minus the six pack of amber bock of course.
