Take Notice People![/color] There is a new beer in town and its name is Mic' Ultra! Before this there was only pee water, however we have now reached the pinacle of beer making. With it's super smooth, full body this is one taste 'mofo.' It is everything that is good about Guiness put into a PBR.
Hovever on a differnent, more depressing note I shall talk about : Weihenstephaner, Lager, Bayer Staats-brauerei, 5.1%, Germany.
I bought this one because I like German beer and I hadn't tried this one before, I wasn't disappointed, but I wasn't too impressed. It was a good bottle of beer, but I was hoping to find something a little bit more unique. This product has a good, light body and is semi-sweetish. But overall pretty average and not above any descent american/other beers.

Did I ever mention I finally tried the Black Douglas and really liked it? Maybe I did. I can't keep up with what I've said and not said anymore. I liked but wasn't taken with JD Dundee's Honey Brown at first, but it's really growing on me. Wait... didn't I already mention Douglas and say that it could be interesting to compare with Newcastle? sound familiar... We have Newcastle right now, (maybe we're out?) but no Douglas. Bejeezus, I can't keep anything straight today... (I used "bejeezus" just for you, McHitfist).
"If you don't drink your Black Douglas, you can't have any pudding. How can you have any pudding if you don't drink your Douglas?"

If you have random hunger I recommend following the advice of this little ditty I heard a while ago Beer! Beer! Beer! It's liquid bread...It's good for you!
This holds especialy true if you down some Guiness, that will solve any issues of the munchies. We should have a experiment and try to survive on beer alone. It would be a real Southern Diet, we could even call it that if it's succesful (as opposed to the South Beach Diet). We could be rich! Rich I tell ya! ;D Exelent!

Returned to one of my old stand-bys this weekend past.. Bass.. very hopsy, excellent with a good chili burger. Had also some sort of honey ale (Uncle Jager can fill int he name - too tired to look for it) It was sweet without being cloyingly so, yet also crisp and very clean. There was something about joining the Leinie Lodge. I wonder if it rhymes with heinie?
Ok! The name I could not remember was Leinenkugel's Honey Weiss. It's a Wisconsin brew, champagne coloured with a light flavour that first tastes of honey then clarifies to a honey/wheaty flavour. I liked it very much, and Uncle Jager said it was fairly priced. I compared it with Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale (England)... Definitely nutty! Very strong flavour, strong enough to feel like someone bopped you in the mouth. A bit bitter, very nutty, very solid. Not my fave, but not bad.
Now that I've offered my thoughts while we await Unkie Jager's thoughts, let me take a moment to plug a new thread... since we have such a strong ale thread going on here, I am starting a sister thread about wine. I realise that I am probably the only wino here, but perhaps I could move someone to try something. Cheers!
Okie dooooo, without further adoooo. Yes I do consider that to be a rhyme. Here we go: Leinenkugel's Honey Weiss, Wheat Beer, 4.92%, Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company. US
I was quite excited when I picked this six-pack at Kroger. A honey flavored wheat beer, my two favorite things in one. However, I was soon very disappointed, the beer did not taste that overly honeyish, nor did it have an interesting wheat taste, like the good folks at Flying Dog do. I do have to say that I like my honeybeer to be sweet and this one was not, I found that it was quite plain. Although it is cheaper then Flying dog I think the extra price is worth the taste.

Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale, The Old Brewery, England
I had like another one of Samuel Smiths Ales so I opted to try this one, especialy since it was the first nutty beer I remember trying. I was inicialy happy with the results this one did not have that od cold coffee taste that many other dark ales have, instead it had a strong nutty flavor, which I found refreshing. By the end of my pint however, I had lost interest. I would however, recomend this to those you like dark ale but want to try something different yet also familiar. I wouldn't say that the nutty flavor was strong it wasn't like sucking down a liquified penut or anything.

Last and perhaps least: O'Hanlon's Double Champion Wheat Beer, O'Hanlon's Brewery, 4%, England
With all this talk about double champion you would think that this beer is Da Shit of wheat beers. Let me tell ya they is lying! Although by no means bad, it certainly was kinda boring. This is a double fermented beer, the second time around happening in the bottle, so there is a slight 'chunkyness' to your drinking experiance. Other then that there is nothing much to tell about it. It was probably the most wheaty, wheat beer I've had, SpookLoops described it as drinking a big bail of wheat. So if ya like your wheat with LOTS of wheat then this is the beer for you.
I'm trying Negra Modelo for the first time - love it! wonderfully balanced in flavour, uber smooth. I even think the bottle shape is cute. Very very tasty.. reminds me a little of cola in a strange way. I like it very very much - I plan on buying this one in the future.

I would have to agree negra Modelo gets a big fat 5 in my book. It is like a Xingu except I can find it here. Very smooth! Which reminds me some good people brought me a six-pack of Xingu, Thanks again Beefy and Vet Tech, (don't worry I remember your names). let us move on...
Pilsner Urquell, Czech, Pilsner
This is supposed to be the first ever Pilsener made. By all honesty I thought I would like it, I liked beers in Germany and Europe, though I can't remmber if they were pilseners. I found that this beer had too much going on, I felt like I was drinking the extracts of a flower field. There were just too many flavors. It won't put me off trying other pilseners, but I would definatly not drink this one again.

Also I got to partake in something that many a people in this country think is beer a Miller lite. I was actually somewhat supprised I could taste some beer in there somewhere. After having tried such things a Busch and Bud I actualy would preffer to drink a Miller, I guess if I ever end up in a shit hole bar and need a beer I could order one of these, just got to look around and make sure i'm not surrounded by Bud-heads. I hear the rivalry is like Ford and Chevy.
