    when I saw 'smoothest', my first thought was moloko or a nicely aged abyss... 'easy-to-drink': gumballhead or a very fresh czech pils.

    smoothest and easy to drink? i think i'll go with black butte

    Any hand pulled English bitter in any pub in the U.K. I particularly like Tetleys Bitter or Caffreys Irish Ale.

    I said before if I ever were challenged to a beer chugging contest I would pick Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout, so I am going to have to go with that.

    Going for the obscure WI brew. O'So Night Train is my favorite porter of all time and that beer goes down fast. Which says something coming from the slowest beer drinker ever.

    beerserks Savant (360) Texas Oct 19, 2010

    Yea I think Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout, Victory Prima Pils, or SN Pale Ale.

    And to think VoS is pretty much available at any grocery store in San Diego and Costco.
  24. riverwest stein. It will treat you nice if your looking for something light, smooth, and malty
  25. two hearted is great. Have not tried the other one though
  26. I have not had that porter, how would you compare it to founders porter?

    For awhile I was really in to Stone Smoked Porter for how smooth and easy it was to relax with.
  29. believe it or not, Kona Longboard goes down great. One of my favorite summertime beers
  30. Steeeve

    Steeeve Savant (265) Pennsylvania Nov 16, 2010

    Pretty much any Helles, Stoudt's Gold Lager being my favorite. If you're talking smooth and easy drinking, you gotta start with lagers.
  31. Here I fixed that for ya. The answer is and always will be Two Hearted
  32. tectactoe

    tectactoe Champion (870) Michigan Mar 20, 2012

    While I personally prefer Two Hearted as well (and by quite a large margin), there's no doubt that SNPA is a better "gateway" beer to ease the macro-lovers into the craft world.

    All good ones. I usually buy Affligem blonde or Paulaner O fest when I want something lighter and smoothe.

    Gumballhead - I drink it like its juice
  39. Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro, for now. Ask me again in a few months as I have a lot of wants I need to try.

    Maibocks and Red Ales are always very easy drinking with their typical sweet malty taste. Never had a bad one of either style.
