    I prefer darker ales, like Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout, Fuller's London Porter, McEwan's Scotch Ale, or Guinness Extra Stout. When I want something lighter in color, I go for Unibroue's La Fin du Monde. Belgian-style ales make for a welcome change.

    All fictional beer aside, when I order beer @ a bar or resteraunt, I usually get a Bodington Pub Ale, Guiness or Newcastle. In the summertime I tend to drink lighter fare especially Pacifico Clara. There's nothing better then a few of those with lime after a day of surfing!

    Bass all the way!!

    After living in the UK for a couple of years...I couldn't forget the taste of Bass Pale Ale. MK..If you like the ales..you have to try it. It has a terrific "Fresh Bread" aftertaste. . I'm also partial to Darker beers and would love to try some of the Oatmeal blends.

    I really enjoy having an oatmeal blend as my breakfast brew.

    Guinness for me, and little else. It seems to be the type of stout that you either love and defend to the death, or you hate it and the slightest drop on your palet makes you spit. I'm in the latter group, of course.

    However, on occasion, I have indulged in a can of Kieths--I do not care for it drawn from the tap, but I can stomach it quite happily in the can. However, I had it from the tap in a very sketchy Winnipeg pub, and I think based on the opinions of many others, that it is a very good draught beer as well.

    And, of course, let's not forget the good ol' Labatt Blue, which is always a good standby (and reasonably cheap too, if you must provide a lot of it for some thirsty college kids)

    Smithwicks is a nice beer too, but I rarely indulge in it.

    Regards,

    Craig

    Warsteiner Dunkel, for the first.
    Guinness is #2
    Ziegen Bock comes in last, but not least on my list.

    These are almost completely eclipsed by Bacardi 151, but that's not the subject here.

    Thats a new one!

    Kent: I've never heard of it. What kind of heady brew are we talking about here? Is it another stout, dark ale, lager. Please share some particulars on the character and flavour. It sounds very interesting. I'm going to ask our Liquor Control Board Outlet to try and find it. (Yes, Alcohol is sold only by licenced outlets and provincial government stores...works pretty good! The only government agency that actually makes money LOL .)

    Warm Regards

    My two favorite beers of all time are, alas, no longer made: Worthington E and Watney's Red Barrel. Both were British, as are most of my favorites. On tap, nothing currently beats Fuller ESB, if you can find it. In cans, Boddington's is good (just about anything with those "widgets" at the bottom of the can is good), and, of course, Guinness. John Courage in the bottle is pretty good. Among American beers I've always had a fondness for Stroh's, which is bottled in Detroit, though it might just be because that's where I come from. It went national several years back then disappeared again. Henry Weinhardts is good, too, but no longer seems available in six-packs. I avoid most mass market American beers, and would die of dehydration in the desert before drinking Miller. (All those elaborate commercials aside, I've never fully understood why people buy Miller Beer when anyone can just get a horse and make their own.) If I really have the choice, though, I'll go to the best (one of the only!) brewpubs in the L.A. area, Crown City Brewery in Pasadena. They serve an absolutely delightful brew called "Mt. Wilson Wheat."
