    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.

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

    For awhile I was really in to Stone Smoked Porter for how smooth and easy it was to relax with.

    believe it or not, Kona Longboard goes down great. One of my favorite summertime beers
  30. Steeeve

    Pretty much any Helles, Stoudt's Gold Lager being my favorite. If you're talking smooth and easy drinking, you gotta start with lagers.

    Here I fixed that for ya. The answer is and always will be Two Hearted
  32. tectactoe

    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.

    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.
