Oh trust me, I know what you're talking about, and I've had good beer. But my mission is intoxication. Every time. Mission B is saving money. I love trying new beer, but I'm not going to go out of my way to get something special if the taste isn't really what I'm looking for. My friends and I have a limited budget and with quite a few people lookin' to drink, we have to go quantity 90% of the time.

You can find $10 six-packs of 8% alcohol beer. It's like buying a 12-pack of crappy beer for the amount of alcohol you're getting, and it costs about the same as a 12-pack of crap too. Except it's actually good.

Not necessarily. But it's annoying when I go to a bar and all they have is crappy beer because actual good beer doesn't sell as well during happy hour.

I love Sam Adams and look forward to most of their seasonal beers each year. For some reason the Winter Lager Ale always is my most anticipated. IMHO their Octoberfest is great, but I've had others that are as good, if not better from other companies.

A beer is either a lager or an ale.

You can have hybrids depending on brewing temperature and the type of yeast used (typically ales are brewed at higher temperatures with top-fermenting yeast while lagers are brewed at colder temperatures with bottom-fermenting yeast), but generally they're going to be called either a lager or an ale, not both.

Sam Adams's is called Winter Lager. I am a fan of it, though I generally prefer ales because IMO they're more diversified and the flavors are more pronounced.

You can buy a 30 of Keystone Light for $16. Everything cheaper tastes bad. Keystone Light just tastes like water.

I would probably not want to drink it. I don't really like getting very drunk though--a good buzz is nice, but 2-4 beers (depending on the strength) is usually enough. I only get legitimately drunk like once every couple of months. It would probably take me about two weeks to finish 30 beers, and I wouldn't enjoy them at all so it'd really just be a waste of money.

It take me and 2-3 friends of mine to finish a 30 pack in a night, so it works out all right.

I was given one of these yesterday and Wow! This is an absolutely fantastic beer. I loved the lemonade flavor added to the beer, it made the beer a little sweet. I will be definitely getting these beers again. 9.5/10

I can only drink Leinenkugel scarcely. Far too sweet for me.

Haha . . . 9.5/10 would make it the best beer reviewed in this thread. I've had it, and it's good, but it's literally beer mixed with lemonade. It's more of a mixed drink than a beer.

Recently had a few of these Belgians made with lambic beer mixed with sour cherries, and then allowed to be re-fermented for several months. Belgian beer is probably my favorite, and Lindeman's Kriek is quite tasty. It's very acidic and less sweet than a lot of fruit beers, but the fruit taste is still prominent. The initial flavour is sweet and sour with a velvety, sparkly mouthfeel. The drink itself is sparkling but very smooth with the dominant flavour, as you would expect, a rich cherry sweetness. 7.5/10

That's a lot of head Shocked

I've had their raspberry (framboise) lambic before; don't really remember much about it though.

Yeah, I was noticing the same thing, but my guess is that it's just a combination of being being poured too fast/incorrectly and the shape of the glass. When I had mine, the beer was not that heady. It did have a nice head, and left a lacing on the glass, but nothing as extreme as the photo. Laughing

I would agree RF that it is kinda a mixed drink, but it definitely tastes like beer still. I haven't had a wide variety of expensive beers to compare this to, but Heinekin is the only thing I have had that tops this.

Me and my friends have done a 30 in a night. I had 10, and 3 others finished the other 20. I'm like you, if I drink, I'm usually looking to get drunk, not casually looking to drink beer for the taste. It's a taste I am starting to acquire, but I haven't fully got it yet.

I'm not a fan of Heineken whatsoever. If you ask me it's really no better than Budweiser, plus the fact that it comes in a green bottle means it gets skunky way too easily. It's probably better on-tap or in a can, but I can't say I've ever been overly impressed with it.

Lion Imperial Premium Malt Pilsner



I liked their Stout so well I thought I'd give this one a whirl. I've been looking for a good version of a Pilsner for quite a while; unfortunately all the ones I've tried have either been the mislabeled macros or Pilsner Urquell, which due to the fact that it's in a green bottle, was unfortunately skunky when I bought it.

This beer pours out a golden color with a thin head that doesn't last long. It smells of sweet malt and--uh oh--corn. Right away that's not a very inviting smell for a beverage, really. The taste is quite sweet with a syrupy mouthfeel . . . it's not very light. The alcohol is palpable in both the odor and taste (it's 8.8% alcohol and high gravity, so it really grabs you). Unfortunately I'm not enjoying this very much. To make matters worse there are floaties in the beer . . . which just shouldn't happen, especially not in a beer that isn't labeled "unfiltered." The finish is strongly alcoholic with some kind of unidentifiable funk that really doesn't leave me wanting more.

What is pleasant about this beverage, though, is that one will give you a nice buzz since it's so powerful. Unfortunately it comes across like an exceptionally thick, too-sweet version of the macro garbage you can buy for $5.00 at the local liquor store. I paid twice that amount and enjoyed it about as much.

This is quite a disappointment compared to their stout, which was exceptional. This isn't even average.

Overall Rating:3.5
