Refreshing, pleasant beers?

  1. Count me in on the Noble Pils vote. That stuff is amazing.

    SAM ADAMS, if you're listening, put it in 16 oz cans!!!

    Grand Teton's Sweetgrass APA is an incredibly delicious and easy to drink beer. Just hoppy enough to be interesting and balanced by mildly sweet pale malt. Just a really accessible and refreshing beer. I had kind of forgot about it once Fall and Winter came and I was drinking darker beers, but I had one the other day and I loved it all over again.

  4. Great Lakes Eliot Ness and Allagash White!
  5. Search out some keller beer or zwickel beer. Southampton Keller Pils is a refreshing pilsner and the unfiltered yeast gives it an interesting dynamic. Also, Berliner Weisses generally have low ABVs and a really refreshing sour twang.

    If you like Spotted Cow, give Lake Louie's Coon Rock a try...a better cream ale IMHO.

    Voting for Headwaters as a clever, refreshing Pale Ale.

    Hit the nail on the head. I thought Saranac white IPA was very crisp as well, Shafly APA, oh yeah and Pillzilla. That was so awesome drinking in the middle of a sea of DIPAs/RIS we had at a tasting.

    Totally agree with this! I just had one last night and thought it was a very refeshing beer!

    I also think saisons are light and refreshing.

    Sweetwater 420 or lowryeder
    Any good wheat or fruit lambic
    I'm not picky at all. I usually go for a ipa of some sorts in this situation though.

    Full Sail Session lager or a nice Saison/Farmhouse ale

    I work outside, and in the summer things got pretty brutal. So, sometimes on the way home I'd pick up a six pack of Alaskan White, always hit the spot : )

    Hands down, New Glarus Moon Man for me. That stuff just has something about it that is got-damn refreshing.

    I wish RR's Hill 2/Row 56 was an annual release. That is some goddamn refreshing beer.
  22. So basically your looking for a good pilsner or pale ale.i had a Maine peeper ale tonite and found it really refreshing but I'm also used to dipa's

    Founders All day IPA. Can't wait for the release! I usually drink a case or 4 each year lol.

    I suggest unglueing yourself from that IPA/stout trap. Once you do you'll find refreshing beers everywhere. That might sound antagonistic, but its not.
  25. i'm a big fan of Maine Peeper... very drinkable, but a little pricy. Boat beer is also quite refreshing, but i doubt available in TX.
  26. Probably Lagunitas A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' for me.

  27. Good suggestions, thanks. I will add my newest find DB Vienna Lager. I just discovered DB, Devils Backbone a couple of months ago. Their Vienna Lager has a crisp fresh taste that is perfect for parties and ball games.

    I'm thinking a nice cold Jabby Brau from Jack's Abby will do the trick.

  30. Jack's Abby makes some very tasty light, refreshing session beers.

    Their Wheat Lager and Jabby Brau are both exceptionally crisp and light on the stomach.

    EDIT: Southern Tier Live is also a very tasty and AFFORDABLE pale ale. Only $4 for a 22oz bottle? YES PLEASE!
  31. Ha! Damn. Took my answer from me!!!

    Great Lakes Brewing Co. - DORTMUNDER GOLD, it has very clean taste that makes it very refreshing. I would compare it to a Molson Canadian with a more refined taste that holds up at any temperature.

    I really like that beer, but at 5.5% it's a little strong to be truly refreshing in my book. I'd be happier if they tuned it down a notch.

    Troges sunshine Pils and Reisssdorf Kolsh.
  40. The small liquor store near my house recently started carrying Left Hand Polestar Pilsner. That's my go-to now when I want something easy to drink.
