    I love Duvel... cold Duvel. I also fancy Ommegagng Belgian Pale Ale as well.

    What are your choices for smoothest, easy drinking brews?

    The answer to about 90% of the topics asking about certain beers on this site is SNPA.

    Personal favorites are Two Hearted and Weihen Hefe.

    New Glarus Spotted Cow. Could drink cases and cases.

    Hess Grazias is also very smooth, but you're only going to find it in San Diego.

    Death & Taxes from Midnight if you are in SF.

    Edmund Fitzgerald from Great Lakes if you are in the mood for something darker.

    It was mentioned a lot in the "Porters that aren't thick and robust" thread.
    But that's what makes it one of the smoothest, best drinking beers in the world, Black Butte Porter.

    Spotted Cow is a go-to beer for me too. And I'd rather have a Edmund Fitzgerald than just about any other porter.

    I'll add Smuttynose Brown Dog Ale and Revolution Eugene Porter to the list too.

    I've been known to down one of these (Augustiner Edelstoff) in 4-5 gulps on a hot day. (Return of the Mass...)

    Duvel on tap beats them all IMO. It really is so easy to drink. Too bad its such a rarity.

    For me this all just depends on mood plus season. Although i will always be partial to the sour beer. Give me some liefmans cuvee brut kriek anyday!

    Many mentioned already- Augustiner Edelstoff, Hacker-Pschorr Munich Gold, Weihenstephaner Hefe, London Pride, Yards Brawler...

    But I just gotta add Ayinger Altbairisch (dunkel), and my latest favorite squeeze Weihenstephaner Pilsner to the list.

    For a bit higher gravity Schlenkerla Urbock and VITUS! can't be beat, but you gotta watch yourself.

    Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold.... very crisp n' smooth with a great malt/hops balance. At 5.8ABV can down a few without forgeting your name.

    Fullers London Porter, Black butte, just about any sour ale.

    I love Racer 5 and Torpedo, both in maybe the 38-42 degree range. I know that may seem WAY too cold for some folks here, but for me the lower temp just seems to accentuate the hop punch all the better.

    The downside of this is things tend to somewhat fuzzy after about 3 or 4 rounds..
