What's your favorite type of beer?
« Reply #16 on: July 06, 2017, 03:33:20 PM »
Nothing too hoppy, strong, or sour. I prefer all malted barley but a little sugar of one sort or another or wheat is semi-acceptable from time to time: Mild, English Pale Ales, Porters, Stout, Irish Ale, Scottish Ale, Brown Ale, Amber Ale, Blonde Ale, Kölsch, Cream Ale, California Common, Bock, Dunkel, Festbier, Export, Saison, Wit, Weizen, etc.

Sam Adams makes a decent variety of beers; unfortunately, American beers as a group tend to be lacking.

It appears you are in FoCo. You don't like any of the local stuff there?? You think Sam is better than say Odell? Just curious.

For the most part I like a bit of everything but recently it's pale lagers or west coast style hoppy stuff.

What goes with my dish... ;) ;)

If I had to keep it to 3 I'd say - Tripel, Dunkel, and weissbier.

It's hard to narrow down, it depends on my mood and the season, but I would say German pilsner, american ipa and russian imperial stout.

I brew IPA's the most, but I love making a variety of styles depending on my mood or season. I suffer from Beer ADD, so I jump around and rarely make the same style in succession...wait, what beer style am I talking about again?

My favorite beer to brew is quaffable, clear, 4-6% alcohol, low to medium bitterness, aromatic, and usually yellow to amber in color. I rotate through lots of styles that fit this description.

I like to drink IPA's when out. I don't usually brew those.

If I am out at a pub and I see a German Pilsner, I will try at least a sample of that and if good, a glass.  'Same with any beer with Rye in it.
It's pretty much the same for homebrew as well - I like to have 5% abv beers, usually Pale or Amber colored and well-hopped.  On a regular basis I tend not to drink beers with high alcohol content or lots of roast malts.

Anything 3-5%, but not Belgian character.  I know lots of people love it, just not me.  I'm also not too fond of huge hop character.  I like a hoppy beer, but I like to keep the enamel on my teeth.

If I was somewhere that had everything I would probably start with a helles, then a pils, something english (bitter or mild), a APA, and finish up with a porter. 
Risk of failure should be no deterrent to trying.
