I had a Leinenkugel's Honey Weiss this afternoon. Very smooth. Light aftertaste. Very nice. Friends have told me that their "fruit" beers are tasty, although sometimes edging towards syrupy. They also spoke highly of Leinenkugel's apple spice and maple brown. (Apparently hard to find.)
Climb on!

Some good stuff recently:

COOP Zeppelin (Oklahoma)
New Belgium Lips of Faith Tart Lychee Ale (we really liked this)

And in a can that I can find here in small town Colorado to take to the mountains with me the New Belgium Shift.

Hmm, that reminds me that I need to add a barf smilie to the forum!


Awesome, Bill!

I don't think I mentioned this before, but "CoCoNut Porter" from Maui Brewing Company is excellent!

New Belgium Shift.

Drinkable meets flavor. Lagunitas and Sierra Nevada Summerfest are the only other lagers with flavor for me now.

My current fave.

i tried old rasputin for the first time a couple weeks ago. darn tasty!

my favorite beers change with the seasons. left hand nitro milk stout has had my attention a lot lately, so i guess it's my current favorite.

Taking a picture of a beer that beautiful made me drool on my smart phone. The IPhone is so fun to use, I wind up taking pictures of good beer and food also.
