    I didn't care for it. It was like drinking a banana with an odd taste. I know if is very highly regarded... but just not for me.

    First of all...how have I never heard of/ever had Duvel!?!?

    Second...Grand Teton Sweetgrass APA is my go-to sessionable. So smooth with just enough of a hoppy bite to keep it crisp. Black Butte Porter is also up there when I'm wanting something darker.

    Unfortunately, I often forget about both when I think there's something bigger and better and newer out there. I always crave Sweetgrass, but I hardly ever leave the liquor store with it.

    "Gumballhead" is the first that popped into my head. Also, another Chi-town entry: Half Acre "Gossamer."

    Death & Taxes was my only regret from our California trip earlier this month. We ran out of time before I could track it down.

    Centennial from Founders is hard to beat from a smoothness factor imo

    Ten Fidy is hard to beat as well (ditto FBS)

    Troegs Perpetual IPA practically goes down like water. One of my favorite 4% pale ales on the market today--

    ...wait? What's that? It's actually 7.5%? Could have fooled me :confused:

    I have very limited beer experience, but am remedying that.

    Just bought my first hefeweiss, the Frankizaner Wiessbier, and love it. Over the summer I drank and enjoyed Sam Adams Light, Killian Irish Red, Bass Pale Ale, and pretty much anything by Shiner, and a few wheats by Flying Dog, when I needed refreshment after mowing the lawns, or when the guys got together after work in the swimming pool and over a game of horse shoes and brats.

    I like stouts, but they need to be paired with dishes appropriately and so I don't consider them "easy" drinks. O'Haras Irish Red and Stout were special treats, but really need a burger to go along with them. And I'm really not a fan of excessive happiness such has become the trademark of IPAs (really wish I lived in Europe).

    Given that list, what would you suggest for my further imbibing?

    Yea pretty easy to drink, but when I have the chance I always pick Moon Man over spotted cow. Or Dancing Man.

    Really though, Hoegaarden for me. Its cheap and everywhere so if I drink a bunch in one sitting, I won't feel guilty about it.

    Victory Prima Pils is the first that comes to mind. Hands down my favorite lager on the planet! My beer of choice on a Sunday afternoon while watching endless hours of sports on TV.
