They've actually found in studies that it is the weight of the bottle, it makes it seem more important. Its like if you're drinking out of a heavier glass vs. a light glass.

Although I would agree that canned beer will taste different from bottled beer. Bottles will let some light in, which can change the flavor of the beer.

I'm not saying one is better or worse than the other, just that there is both a psychological factor and a chemical factor.

i think one of the best pumpkin beers is from Lakefront, their barrel aged pumpkin is amazing.

My favorites are The Greater Pumpkin by Heavy Seas (which is bourbon aged) and Warlock by Southern Tier (a pumpkin stout).

Dogfish's Punkin is solid, but I haven't had it in years.

Really, the way to do it is a double-blind test, with the beers poured into glasses.

Listen, dude, I know it's not good. It's just better than fucking budweiser. It's tastier than Michelob Ultra, the beer I just sampled tonight on my aunt's urging.

Don't judge me. I can't afford all the good beer I want, and I'm stuck in a place without a decent fucking bar. The closest one's main claim to fame is that it's the cheap strip club where a major meth syndicate in a nearby state capital got its start.

I came here to review Michelob Ultra as being fairly fucking tasteless. It has that in common with Bud, and Bud Lite. At least Coors Light has that weird nutty flavor, when it's from a glass, anyway.

Also, the 'weight of the container' theory's off, because I had a 12 oz. bottle and a 24 oz. can. Giving value to the heavier, the aluminum can should have won, despite the lesser flavors.

I'm judging the beer, not you for drinking it.

I had a Coors Light the other day (someone on the train gave me one). It wasn't good, but I'd had a few good beers already so I didn't particularly care. Also, if it's cold enough, it's not really bad, either.

Ultimately, that's about what I can say about it. It's definitely not good, but compared to the rest of what I call 'gas station beers,' it's decent.

Abita Strawgator:

The fuck, bro. It's delicious, but it tastes nothing like their Andygator, the other doppelbock they make. So much with the strawberry. This is amazing. Not my usual, I like the bite in Andygator, which is why I got this, but there's none of that here, just a rush of strawberry.

Yeah, it's tasty, but way too berry-flavored. It's too much like carbonated strawberry kool-aid witg 8% alcohol. Will  enjoy tonight. Will not buy again

I tripped tonight while restocking the cooler.  The only casualty was a case of pint cans of Genessee.  Two burst, the rest are seriously dented.

So you had no choice but to take the dented cans since they can't be sold, right?

We tried returning it to the distributor for damage, to get a replacement. 

The distributor's rep looked at it on his weekly stop, and sent two cans to replace the empties. 

I slipped them into the plastic holders and turned the rest so the dents were on the interior...

It's in the cooler, waiting for the next customer who wants Genny pounders. 



Ah, retail...    :roll:

I had the new Guinness IPA today. I'm not sure how to feel about it. It tastes halfway between a stout and an IPA and I think my mouth is confused.

I tried Guinness Blonde, and that was...not bad. Nothing special. I guess I'd try the IPA but I'm not gonna go out of my way to try it.

I enjoyed it more the more that I drank it. It's smoother than other IPAs, though it does have an aftertaste I'm not used too

Just saw that. I tried the Nitro IPA on NYE and couldn't get more than a few sips in. Possibly the worst tasting beer I've ever had. In better news...

Took a risk and picked up a four pack of this last night, tried one. Risk paid off, it was very tasty. Just the right amount of apple and sweetness, neither were overpowering.

so I tried some beer while in Germany.  Overall, much better than 95% of what I've had here.

favorites:
Berliner Kindl Weisse.  just really really GOOD.  had three in one evening setting. 
Most beer in one setting for me in several years.

Augustiner Hell.  MUCH better than Yuengling. 
Best of all: it was COLD, and I had hiked nearly 9 miles thru Munich that day.

Radeberger Pils.  Good and mellow.  Put me right out.
