    Dogfish Head's Ta-Henket. I remember trying this in the Rehoboth brew pub shortly after it was featured on the Brew Master's show and thought it was amazing.

    PBR tall boys or extra tall boys chilled ice cold-- always on a hot day...
    Another fave is a variant-- Beer water! One part club soda one part <And America Adjunct> PBR in my case-- stir in a few ice cubes! Perfect to rehydrate during the beer break while pushing 'round the lawnmower...

    Natural light. As much as as a hate to admit it I would take a natty over most of the other macros if it came down to it.

    Try it in a blind test, it'll change your mind.

    I really dug that brew too. I was ready to rip on it when I tried it, it wasn't bad. Quite enjoyable.

    People hate Habanero Sculpin??? :grimacing::grimacing::grimacing: I mean, not you, obviously, but...

    Well, I suppose if you don't like heat in beer... See, but the flaw to some of this is that if you try a beer that has a particular "hook" and you know it's something you don't like, then not liking the beer really doesn't say anything (bad) about the beer, you know? Now if fans of chili in beer all hated the Habanero Sculpin, that's meaningful.

    That said, everyone knew that Stone's Crime and Punishment beers were gonna be hot, but everyone seemed to hate them - even folks that like heat in beer.

    That I said, I did not hate Crime or Punishment. :sunglasses:

    I also liked Indra Kunindra, described yesterday by @Raj as tasting of farts and cumin :stuck_out_tongue: lol

    And Rumpkin? Oh, man, I loved Rumpkin :grinning:

    I'm with you on that. I lived in Florence for a while. Nothing more refreshing than a 99 cent bomber of cold moretti on a stagnant, hot Italian summer day.

    Ithica Apricot Wheat is probably the best example. One of my favorites.

    And I don't love Genesee, but I definitely like it more than most.

    American pale wheat ales and brown ales- the two styles that got me into craft beer. I'd say particularly APWA get zero love but I really enjoy them come summer time.

    I don't mind Serum, or Brimstone. But I can't for the life of me remember when I last bought either.

    I'd have to say Newcastle. I'm guessing there is a fair chance it's nostalgia for the memories of me and my brother drinking it at the Bellagio sports book for free but I really do enjoy a nice brown ale regardless of who makes it.

    I like Genesee Cream Ale as a light refresher after working on the transmitter site when it is hot. Refreshing and easy to drink. A great lawnmower beer.

    everyone hates it... but turn it into a beer float and it's good enough to erase awful memories of taking passport photos of a 13 mo old and 6 year old.
    yep, it's THAT good.

    Was going to say the same thing. I love Summer Shandy on a hot day, especially when playing golf. I can kill a 12pk in 18 holes it goes down so easy.

    DUDE! I love that beer! Crushed a case one time a very session able fruit beer!

    And my contribution it has to be Southern Tier Pumking. This years batch was defiantly good and it holds up quite well even after 8 months. Not to brag but I was able to get a case just yesterday for 63 bucks!

    Olympia Beer and Rainier, both are AALs but they actually have substance versus Budweiser, Coors, Miller, and their lite counterparts.

    This was the first beer that came to mind when I saw this thread. It delivered as advertised in a big way - mangos and chiles. Killer with grilled steaks and ranchero sauce.

    I like FIS and think it's a strong example of the style but it is undeniably ashy - very apt description.

    Anheuser-Busch : Shock Top Shockolate Wheat. It is cheap and I like the chocolate flavor. You can say it is brewed by satan - but it is still tasty.
