    Top 3 are all on gravity at the brewery. For me freshness makes great beers mind blowing. Balanced classics are my preference also.

    Uerige Alt (on gravity at brewery)
    Schlussel Alt (on gravity at brewery)
    Augustiner Bräu Märzen Bier (Salzburg - on gravity at Brewery)
    Watermelon Warhead (at Feral)
    Green Flash 30th St Pale Ale (at Monk during US beer week)
