I've drank a lot of beer over the years (47 yo) and just recently have had a change of tastes. My favorite beers before the last couple of years have been; Busch, Stag, Miller Lite, and the like. I cannot drink them anymore. Tastes like crap. I can't tell you why, as I don't know the proper terms to convey to you what it is. Bad aftertaste, almost a sour grain taste to me. Idk, it's frustrating. LOL I'll give you some of the beers I've tried lately and I'd like you're opinion on what other beers might compare, as I can't seem to get a few of them consistently.
1. Fat Tire - love it. First one I drank, it felt like I was chewing it. lol Good stuff. The "biscuity" term in reviews I don't get. Don't taste like a biscuit I've ever had. I want to say there is a faint chocolate taste to it.The aftertaste with this beer is why I like it. I don't experience the "whang" like I do with the Miller Lite, etc.
2. Sam Adams Boston Lager - backup to Fat Tire when I can't find it. Good stuff, but it's got a stronger different flavor to it. Am I tasting a bigger hops flavor here, or is it malt? I'm thinking hops. Set me straight.
3. Boulevard Bully Porter - good stuff too. But have a hard time finding it. I've managed 6 total to drink. I have to catch them on the pick 6 shelf. The lady says they only get two per Boulevard variety pack. No sixes, etc. of only BP.
4. I also like Shiner Bock, Black Lager, 1554 (New Belgian Brew. Co.), Heineken Dark.
If you've tried any of these, recognize what direction I'm leaning and what I like, recommend some different beers for me to try. Break it down for me. Thanks a bunch. Cheers.
