    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 love all types of beer, and while I may be long-winded in my reviewing of them, I am not exactly a harsh critic. I also do not consider myself an expert, but I will do what I can to point others toward good beers of all styles.

    Favourite Styles
    -
    Pale Ales (English or American)
    - IPAs (ditto)
    - Rye Beers
    - Most German or Czech-style lagers (Pilsener, Munich Helles, Marzen, etc.)
    - Hefeweizens, Dunkelweizens
    - Tripels, Belgian Strong Pale Ales and Saisons
    - BSDAs & Quads
    - Doppelbocks & Eisbocks
    - Porters & Stouts
    - Lambics, Gueuzes, Goses and Wild Ales

    I am a semi-active trader, though I am not doing international trades at the moment. My 'gots' list is more of a 'what is in my cellar' list; there are usually many other things in my fridge, as well. If it's included in my gots list, then I am willing to trade it. I have fairly easy access to Southwestern Ontario/SE Michigan craft beers, as well as the imported stuff available in those markets, but I am not a whale hunter.
