The Beer Thread


#902

I’d prefer a Weihenstephaner in that arena myself.


#903

I’m a bit of a devotee of Matso’s Mango in hot weather…


#904

Citrus taste, or tropical flavours, or even something that has raspberry or cherry?
Is some sourness ok?


#905

Asahi, big japanese brand. I’m having one now.


#906

I like both the citrus and tropical flavours, not so much rasberry and cherry.
I’m willing to try some sourness within reason.


#907

That’s the one. It’s not bad, but ends up tasting the same as all the others after a while, but that might just be me.


#908

How about a session ipa. Loads of flavor but not a full strength beer so comparitively light on the stomach.

Colonial Small Ale, and you get to support one of the club’s commercial partners.


#909

No it’s not you. It does taste the same because it’s boring and bland af.


#910

Thank god it’s not just me then.


#911

Yeah, I recommended that in here a few years back. One of the most enjoyable light beers going.

Just wish it came in a bottle instead, … it’d be even better.


#912

Asahi from Japan is okay. But it’s contract brewed in Aus so most of what you would have here is brewed here and tastes ■■■■.


#913

Tins for the wins


#914

Even here in Japan it’d be about the last of the big name lagers I’d reach for.


#915

I’m lowbrow :slight_smile: In Japan I really liked Suntory malts umami.


#916

Not sure what you mean with that?


#917

Actually, that’s not a bad choice. Suntory make the best stuff for mine, if the choice is out of the big 4 (Asahi, Kirin, Sapporo, Suntory).


#918

A decent golden ale would work well. Light bitterness, fruity, low key flavours.


#919

If you want fruity, Stone & Wood’s Pacific Ale goes down a treat on a hot day. Fairly strong on the passionfruit flavour.


#920

Cans are better than bottles.


#921

Wow. blink

See, I thought it was impossible you meant that.

I have never heard anyone say that ever, and I never thought I would.
