Beers we don't like (Read 757 times)

    Guinness, like most beers and even soft drinks, is made to local tastes.  I think the bottles of Guinness Export in much of the Southern Hemisphere is much better than the stuff in Ireland.  It's also 9%.

      Yes, I should have qualified my statement.  As Trent would say, in the states we have "Guinness".  I would love to try a real Guinness.

        Leinie's Berry Weiss, of course.  Worst. "beer". ever.

          All that said I just don't like real hoppy beers in general.  I like a hoppy beer, but subtlety does it for me.  When the hops just push all of the other flavors out of the way, err not so much.

           

          I agree. All the "super hopped" IPA's, etc just don't do it for me.

            Last night my husband came home from the beer store with these.  I told him about the Lager talk here, his response was that all beer taste nasty he just drinks it for the buzz.!!

              Any beer that tastes like perfume.   I had a French beer once, called Pectar, and it was the most disgusting thing I've ever tasted.

               

              I believe that Pectar is a sparkling pear "beer" (really a wine), much like hard cider (think Woodchuck).  Unlike cider, most pear beers are fairly nasty.

                Harp is good.  Oh, and I like hoppy beers.

                  My brother brought it over saying he wanted to bring me a local brew.

                  I told him to NEVER bring me beer with fruit in it again or I wouid disown him.

                    Fruit beer seems to either be really good or really bad.  I like Magic Hat's #9, but I also LOVE apricots (I love eating dried ones while I drink it).  If I didn't like apricots I would probably not really like or dislike it.

                        Once upon a time in college we (underfunded and underaged) scored some Red, White and Blue in cans. It was made by Pabst, and was their low end brew. We couldn't even gag it down just for the buzz.

                              Yeah...but probably not for long, since it's becoming so mainstream.

                                A buddy gave me a Bud light wheat. In politeness, I gagged it down.

                                As for Guinness and "Guinness"

                                From the Guinness site:

                                Does the Draught GUINNESS® in the USA come from Dublin?

                                Yes

                                Is GUINNESS® the same in each country?

                                Generally yes but GUINNESS® does have to use local ingredients so, for example, in Nigeria the government wish to promote the use of Sorghum, which grows better than barley. Therefore GUINNESS® is made using sorghum in Nigeria. A stronger GUINNESS® called Foreign Extra Stout is also brewed in Africa and other places.

                                Why does GUINNESS® taste different outside Ireland?

                                a) If it relates to the different kinds of GUINNESS® available then:
                                Historically there were different kinds of GUINNESS® available.

                                Today the range of GUINNESS® products available includes:
                                GUINNESS® Draught - the creamy pint, available in keg, bottle and can formats. Typically sold in Europe, the US, Canada and Australia.
                                And as GUINNESS® Draught Extra Cold - available in keg. This is exactly the same as GUINNESS® Draught, but served a few degrees cooler.
                                GUINNESS® Extra Stout/Original - available in bottles and cans.
                                GUINNESS® Foreign Extra Stout - stronger in taste and more bitter than GUINNESS® Draught. It is especially popular in Asia, Africa and the Caribbean.

                                 

                                I think it mainly has to do with bars getting the nitro/CO2 mix wrong. And perception/bias/your brain. If you are drinking Guinness Draft in the US or Ireland, it should taste the same if properly served. If memory of 2.33 years ago, when I last visited Ireland, serves me, it tastes the same.

                                 

                                But I would love like to get some of that Foriegn Extra Stout. (7.5, NOT 9%, btw.)
