hahaha I wouldn't imagine the fining agent would leave a flavor profile

Me and others: uh huh.

I've never used it, but isinglass doesn't taste like anything, right?
I think the Germans have some sort of law against fish bladder beer

Didn't they revise the Reinhisgubot (sp?) to include fining agents?

Just finished this whole thread.. Great stuff..

My wife along with most of my friends & family appreciate good beer, so unfortunately I don't know if I'll ever be able to contribute.

They might be confusing it with the skunkiness you generally get from green bottles.

Since it's kind of a maibock maybe he associated the taste with bock beers from Germany? I'm fairly certain Isinglass has no taste.

Very good call.

In comparing Beer & Bread;
(Hefeweizen and Porter) ~ Sourdough & Pumpernickel

(Roggenbier & Saison) ~ Caraway Rye & French

(Ordinary Bitter & American Light) ~ Biscuits & Wonder

BMC Beer:Wonder Bread - Imagine life if all you ever ate was wonder bread. All other bread would be $hit and you would have a boring life when it comes to food.

Whenever I am out at a bar with friends I always get something that is not pisswater to try to expose my BMC friends that there is more out there than their beloved Miller Light. So, upon giving one of these friends a sip of Newcastle he responds:
"Hmm, that's pretty good for a dark beer."

To another one of these friends I gave an American Amber that I would describe as balanced, no esters, very slight caramel, and no roasted flavor, he responded with:
(him) "Hmm thats pretty good.... It's close to a stout."
(me) "Eh not really. The hallmarks of a stout are a real roasty flavor, and sometimes coffee or chocolate flavors."
(him) "No, it's pretty close to a stout."
