Rolling Rock, Red Stripe, Coopers Red, Hoegaarden (gotta get it right though) Corona, Cascade Premium (only drink one, after that tastes like sh1t).......... in no particular order.

If I had to vote 1 favourite - Coopers Red. Mind the headache though!

PS. the Czech Bud gives the worst chemical hangovers I have ever had..... what do they put in that stuff? only tried it in bottles though...

My advice is, save your money for a plane ticket. Beer just doesn't travel well. (You might also check out Celis White -- it's an authentic Belgian witbier brewed in Austin, Texas.)

When I first moved to the Netherlands, I'd occasionally splurge for an imported bottle of a good USian microbrew (BTW, my favorite is Bridgeport IPA, brewed in Portland OR). Compared to even the cheaper Belgian beers I could get at the corner store, they were one dimensional, lifeless, full of off flavors, just generally nasty. I couldn't understand how I'd ever liked them, or how I'd survive if I ever went back to the US!

Now that I am back, I'm enjoying microbrews as much as I ever did. And a couple of times I've shelled out the $9 or so for a good Belgian beer (Orval is my favorite for special occasions, otherwise Hoegaarden). Compared to the best American stuff, it's one dimensional, lifeless, full of off flavors, etc. Something about the trip over here just kills them.

This might be the story behind American Budwiser and friends: I remember hearing something about how during the war they had to produce beer that could be shipped and stored under horrible conditions without going bad. But instead of producing an indestructable beer, they wound up with one that was pre-destructed -- it didn't get any worse, but how would you know anyway?

Rob, you remind me of the danish Faxe beer, which is quite
decent, by the way. They are very picky that all Faxe beer
be brewn (brewed?) on water from their own well, which is
claimed the deepest in Denmark. When they started to sell
their beer in the US, they decided to brew it over there, since
beer doesn't travel well. Howver, they insisted on shipping
the water from denmark.

Christer, on behalf of Danish beer-drinkers, Thank You! IMHO, Faxe is like most other Danish beer (and most Austrian beer except Stiegl BTW, Christer ): Perfectly drinkable but nothing special....
Well, this reply was actually just to tell you that I like Urquell as well Perfect for those days where a Budweiser (insert flag of The Czech Republic here...) just tastes to bland

Thumbs up Old Speckled Hen - Morland Brewing

Not really my favorite but as I have one in my
hand at this very moment ....

BTW, for all you British "warm beer" haters I
drink mine straight from the fridge -COLD-
(naturally it's a quality German fridge).

(Actually more of an amber colour)

Hi,

Quote:
on the square in front of the cathedral in Antwerp you can have a couple beers, moules and frites with mayonaisse -- this is what heaven must be like.
Jack,you keep on surprising me.

Next time any of you is over in Belgium, I'll take you to a cosy little pub in Ghent where they serve 500 different Belgian beers.

You better have a good portion of frites before we go in there, I'm telling you.


Sante,

\Frank,sipping from his Kasteelbier...12 degrees and nicely chilled.
