    disagree

    more valves and shit on a throw away cup?

    more convenient, but look at all the shit that comes in contact with your beer....plastic cup, rubber seals, metals springs. don't we throw away enough shit already as it is?

    this reminds me of mcdonalds, when they took the standard registers out and put in new registers that simply have pictures of what the customer bought, so that any illiterate, uneducated slob can run a register. but, I'll give him this. he still needs to be able to identify the word "Big Mac" that comes out the mouth of the customer with the big mac icon on the button on the register.

    TR, besides beer tastes like shit in a plastic cup. And there's no head at all. A good beer is poured in to a frosty glass with just the right amount of head on it. The beer presentation is supposed to scream to the consumer "DRINK ME!!!!"

    it used to be that the typical beer drinker didn't know fukkn shiit about beer. don't believe me?

    30 years ago, we had bud, coors, and miller. there would be long and lengthy conversations about the "qualities" of each, which one was the better beer, blah blah blah. they are all fukn pilsners you fukn morons!

    FLASH FORWARD TO TODAY
    now add, bud light, coors light and miller light.
    additionally, we have micro brews and imports.

    so instead of the 99% morons from 30 years ago, we've beat that back to 50% morons ttoday.

    Im not interested in any beer that is served to me in a fukn plastic cup!!!!!

    Don't forget Schlitz and Pabst.

    Actually, for the volume of beer Budweiser makes, they have a very high quality product. Anybody who has ever made beer in their kitchen knows how easy it is to f[u]ck up and make a really shitty beer and Budweiser makes more beer than anybody. And it's not just drinkable it's got a very consistent quality regardless of the plant that brewed it.

    But yeah, the world has opened up for the beer drinker. And really those pilsner beers are fine on a hot day in the summer. But in the winter time, you need something a little heavier.

    I can only see plastic cups being used at sporting events.

    I brewed beer for over 5 years, making 2+ batches a week. beer making is very diffficult and exacting. brewing a pils is rouugh, as it is so light, so "non flavorful" that any off taste will show up and make it very noticeable.

    in germany, pils is called a ladys beer. i llike pils on a hot summer day, when dehydrated and thirsty. two or three go down so fast. but the rest of the time, I typically drink Guinness draught. it's the lightest in the Guinness spectrum, but flavorful and rings all the way down the glass. Like I always say....

    I like pale ales, ipa's, and lagers the most. Sierra Nevada pale ale is my go to beer, there's also founders and bells breweries where I live. Founders has a bar that's pretty cool, if anyone's ever in Michigan you should check it out.

    Oh and I think that contraption thing there is a waste. Maybe it's because I can't stand either of them beers. If it was programmable it could make a pretty sweet drinking game.

    I fvcking hate beer and can barely stomach just about any beer. Every once in a while I can drop a Corona with a lime if it's fresh.

    Why not just drink good tasting hard liquer? I much rather have a Yager bomber with a diet Red bull then a nasty ass BL. Must be the Rusky within, since I been like 25 I can drink vodka like no other.

    But, to each is own. We all like juice of different flavors

    I brewed in 5 gallon batches. 2x a week. i've read so many books on brewing beer, i can't count em all.

    there are a shiit load of tricks out there, some off the top of my head.....

    have you ever used geletin for finings? works like a charm and your beer comes out crystal clear every time (maybe not desiereable if you want authentic wheat beer)

    ever use hard candy licorice as a adjunt for good head? freeze it, whack it with a hammer, add it to the wort (at the end of cooking). the head comes out thick and creamy, with no additional flavors, with rings all the way down the glass.

    ever make a "sweet" beer? in the spectrum of yeast types, usually this is made with high sugar content and a lager yeast (alchohol sensitive) which yealds a low alchohol beer. by adding saacharin (one teaspoon or so) to each bottle when bottling, you can escape this cycle of sweet/low alchohol and can actually make a high alchohol sweet beer!

    I went to the texas road house, ordered up a guinness at the bar, and this chick just pours it straight into the glass yielding 90% foam and 10% beer. she dumps out the 90% and pours it again. two more times she hands it to me.

    i'm like "Darlin', ya know yer supposed to pour a guinness slow"

    "yeah, i know, but I'm too busy"??????????????

    LMAO, if that happend over here she would taken out and shot, and shot again if she survived, pouring a bad pint of Guinness holds some worse punishments than robbing a car

    That's exactly how we saw them pouring it, and this might sound mental but you have to pour guinness into a proper guinness pint glass, so if ye americans are ever over here, rob a few of them for when ye get back to the land of the free

    TR, have you ever tried Innis and Gunn Ale, it's spectacular.

    I just hate the bubly bitter funky flavor.

    But it sucks when I keep up with my friends at the bar when they are drinking beer. Every once in a while, I'm like fvck, I'm 6 drinks deep - damn I drink I grip.

    Try some ales, rather than the muck, that is coors, bud, miller etc. Imported stuff is nice but pricey and ask TR he knows a lot of good ales over your side of the world that are nice.

    Guinness? They're alright with a shot of Bailey's dropped in it. You should try Arrogant Bastard Ale.

    when i lived in europe, it was a hobby of mine to "borrow" the glassware that the beer was served in. I've moved more than 15 times in the last 25 years, and unfortunately, with each move, it seems like my collection dwindles. I might have a half dozen glasses left. Even my prized 1ltr beer mug from the 1982 Munchen October Fest is no more....


    i have never even heard of this beer. I will go to bevmo and see if they have it. you do know that the process of importing a beer actually undermines the quality of a beer? I went to holland once and had a couple of heineken darks right at the brewery. tasted a little like a dunkel. dark and sweet, giving nice head (ever notice the similarities when people talk about women and beer?). best beer i ever had at that point in time. move back to america, order one up.....tasted like a totally different beer. disappointing!

    Start with Budweiser, its brewed for mass to always taste good, once you drink that for a few months you with a quire a taste for better beer. Budweiser is still my go to staple beer every time though, I really like it

    well, if it's a lager, it means it was fermented slow, in a cold envvironment. typically reserved for lighter beers. in the Guinness spectrum

    Extra Stout < Ale < Draught

    IF you want any proper glasses let me know buddy of mine owns and off licence and can get anything if you want. It's a lovely Ale bud it's aged in oak barrells gives it a lovely sweet taste and hints of toffee it also it 6.6% ABV so you'll know about it after drinking a few lol.

    Razr I wish I knew where you lived. I would make a fake uniform and write you parking tickets with my house as the pay address. Then when you tried to flip my tricycle looking thing I would lay the smackdown on your candy ass and send the tape in as a promo to WWE

    incorrect.

    it is brewed to not have a distinct flavor or characteristic. it has no nose, no aromatics, no rings down the glass, no head and no after taste.

    this beer is so "unoffensive" that it has very little beer-ish qualities that most other beers possess.

    here's the test. quality beer tastes good room temperature. serving beer cold numbs the tastebuds and hides the true flavor of the beer.

    most quality beers are fine room temperature. try a budweiser sometime at room temperature......

    for a first timer, I'd recommend serviing up maybe 6 beers from a variety of sources and see if they like any

    thoughts for the six
    Pacifica (with a lime wedge)
    samuel smith's oat meal stout
    harp or watneys
    kirin
    MGD
    Becks

    here's the test. quality beer tastes good room temperature. serving beer cold numbs the tastebuds and hides the true flavor of the beer.

    most quality beers are fine room temperature. try a budweiser sometime at room temperature......

    for a first timer, I'd recommend serviing up maybe 6 beers from a variety of sources and see if they like any

    thoughts for the six
    Pacifica (with a lime wedge)
    samuel smith's oat meal stout
    harp or watneys
    kirin
    MGD
    Becks
    Bud, the greatest headache in a can is all I can say to that. Yep, as TR said all the generic beers taste of nothing really, the only one over that is half way tolerable is Heineken but then that's only drunk as a last resort in my book. As TR said all decent beers should taste grand at room temp wereas mass produced muck tastes awful. My buddy works for a huge cider manufacturer over here and he was telling me they make lots of other "brands" on contract for the companys and just lash anything into them and just load them with sugar to give it some kinda taste he was saying.
