    To the best of my ability, I try to make all of my beer reviews 'to-style' - that is, I see no sense in comparing pale or light lagers to things like IPAs and barrel-aged what-have-yous. I have long been of the opinion that every beer has its time and place - and for anyone about to say 'malt liquor', well... curbs and park benches are places too, and 'anytime' is still a time.

    I have been interested in the craft side of beer for many years - in fact, I have been registered and reviewing at BA since shortly after I was legally allowed to buy the stuff. I don't consider myself an expert, but I do what I can to expose others to good beer.

    My tastes used to lean toward milder English styles - think pale or brown ales - but they've drifted slightly over the years. Today I am a huge IPA fan, and have also been developing a taste for tripels, DIPAs, and most German styles. I also appreciate the simple stuff, and am definitely a bit of a pale lager enthusiast - which probably results in me being a little lenient when reviewing them.
