I knew you would remember. I went looking for that thread, looks like it got deleted.

now, if some homebrewer came up to me and said, "here's a English pale ale that I threw into secondary with some apricots" I would absolutely try it out.

different story when I'm paying for a pint.

I'll keep trying fruit beers, maybe I'll run into one that I like. (isn't this the definition of insanity?)

Personally I like #9. Its not my favorite, but I like it. I didnt know they used actual fruit... I thought it was a flavor note from the fermentation process/yeast.

whatever hops/yeast combination that could yield it, it is a helluva flavor note.

Total Wine says it's an APA, Beer Advocate puts it in the fruits & veggies section and BJCP lists it as an example of Category 20 — Fruit Beer

Haha...right after I typed that, I thought, "I don't think that's how that's spelled". Only had it that one time. I knew that it wasn't an Asian beer though.

I wasn't crazy about it either. My local supermarket had it & I thought I'd try it because it was one of the only choices on the shelf with pry-off caps, and I needed a few more bottles...

Once bitten twice shy I guess.

#9 is actually pretty good mixed black-and-tan style with Guinness...

But anyway, I actually had another funny beer comment overheard the other day. Beer came up as a topic, and this guy told me, "I only drink *good* beer...Bud Light Platinum!" (Heavy verbal emphasis on the Platinum...)

It has the word platinum in it, so you know it has to be good stuff.

Sounds like me and IPAs. I keep trying them, since I know that the cool kids all like IPAs. I've found one or two that I dislike less, but seeing as how I don't care for bitter, I just can't seem to find one that I like. Not surprising, since pale ales are not my favorite.

But I keep trying them.
