Have not seen a topic like this one here before. Thought I'd get one going. How many beer lovers do we have here? Any home brewers? What is your favorite style of beer?
I appreciate a good pint usually twice a week. I'm no beer snob though, I have a wide variety that I will drink. My favorite beer style however is Ale. More specifically Pale Ale. Both the slightly hoppier American craft brew versions and the more malty English versions.
Also a big fan of English style Porters and Brown Ales. Prefere the English version of Porters and Browns mainly because of the typical over infusion of hopps in the American versions. Porters and Brown Ales just aren't supposed to be overly hopped beers. I do however appreciate lots of hopps in a good India Pale Ale. Unlike the modern English brewers, the American craft brew industry is brewing IPAs much more true to the traditional and original IPA, much like the English used to brew in the 18th and 19th century.
Others I have always liked are German Hefe Wiesens and Marzens (lager). I've tasted many different brewers versions of these styles and have come to the opinion that when it comes to these two beer styles, the Germans still brew them much better than anyone else.
Then there are my old stand-by. Coors Banquet and Pabst Blue Ribbon. Hey, like I said, no one can accuse me of being a beer snob
