Quads & doppelbocks dark brown, but still brown.
SNPA looks rather pretty
ha, reminds me of the man show
As usual, I prefer the authentic German version:
I now know I am getting old because my first thought was I may need to ID these girls before even thinking about them.
I like the look of Ten Fidy as it's being poured. Holy hell, that shit is as black as the devil's dick.
LOL, this is my desktop photo, I looked for the blonde in the front of the pic when I went to Germany but didn't find her.
Like my logo I like the look of any amber to mahogany colored brew ( IPA ) in a pint glass!
Completely disagree with OP.
Appearance is one of the most important elements of the beer for me, especially the head & color.
Hefe-Weizen, Pils, Kolsch, Dry Nitro Stouts, ESB's, among many others are a joy to look at.
Where is that?
Now that is sexy.
Orval. Such a big, rocky head. Looks amazing
Too bad so many (most?) here don't know what you're talking about. They'd probably be content with cloudy lagers.
I have to admit the first time I had Duvel.....
Stared at the glass for 10mins just watching the carbonation.... Coulda been a stripper pole dancing behind it and I woundn't have noticed much. Well maybe I'd have been distracted a little........
Saisons in this glass. This is my sorachi ace saison.
Duvel in a Duvel glass definitely looks sexy. What about Samuel Adams Boston Lager in one of their perfect pint glasses? Yes please. I'd also mention any properly done hefeweizen or weizenbock, bocks, a good helles, an imperial stout, an ipa, or how about any stout on nitro tap?
Those are flavor clouds! What is the problem with wanting the most flavor possible?!?
Maybe the next American craft beer innovation will be to make cloudy Bohemian Pils?
...or a cloudy Kristallweizen.
I'm a sucker for hazy IPAs, as well as crystal clear pilsners.
The pils just look so refreshing, the cloudy IPAs disperse light beautifully and have an alluring glow.
Can't go wrong with either
I would seriously facepalm if Unfiltered Kristalweizen appeared on a label.
we already have unfiltered Czech pils...just a matter of pushing the envelope. Creativity and experimentation are second only to more flavor.
The pale ale is the beer goddess of beauty - this tripel is soft and golden with fluffy, lacy head...
Black ales, porters, and stouts are great and all, but once you go black...
Amber ales, like this old ale... snow-white head, and that amber-orange color! Oh, my!
Least fave: brown ales - meh...
There's nothing wrong with cloudy lager.
Love the golden, orange look of west coast ipas like sculpin for example. Beautiful bright color along with a frothy, sudsy head. Those little bubbles remind you of why beer looked so appealing when you were in your youth.
I love the look of a properly poured Duvel into a Duvel glass. Keep the yeast in the bottle and look at the beautiful head and the bubbles rise from the nucleation point on the bottom.
Quite literally; this is my desktop background photo.
That said....I do love those 3 German gals....the authentic ones. I'd look for that gal in the front as well!
I dropped into Alla Spina tonight (Center City Philadephia)
They have a couple house beers that are crafted specifically for the restaurant by Victory ...
Their "Hundred Horse Chestnut" (chestnut is an ingredient) served in an Alla Spina branded Teku glass was as much eye candy as it was delicious. It has a perfectly clear, deep reddish brown - actually truly 'chestnut' color
I tried to take a picture, but the lighting was a bit dark ... Sorry!
Doesn't really conform to style, but I think it looks like sex in a glass. And I bet most of you will disagree with me.
Belgian pale ale (Duvel) is hard to beat ... though those bocks on this thread look damn fine.
Well-crafted Belgian Strong Dark Ales and Quads are my favorite beers to look at. The creamy, incredibly persistent head/retention/body can be quite striking.
Also like the way this one looks....in....and out of the bottle!
While not my favorite to drink by any means, it's appearance was my favorite thing about it.
I remember King Henry having a particularly beautiful look. Otherwise, like many others, I love beautiful stouts.
Anything from St.Bernardus looks beauuuuuuutiful when poured into a Snifter.
