I see alot of beer connoisseur's on the board..

I see brown ale..pale ale..newcastle..blah blah blah..
Here is my question..after I drink my 3rd beer,they all taste the same..
Can you really taste the difference after you have had a couple??

PS..Dark beer does not count..

What's your classification of dark beer and why doesn't it count?

HAHAHA..
How did I know you would be the first one to reply. :D

My classification of dark beer would be either dinkel acker/becks/heineken dark..or any ale/pilsner mixed with guiness stout

And the reason would be..I could taste the difference

You don't like stouts and or Porters? WTF Bill??

Of course I can tell the difference after two beers or three or five.

Of course I wouldnt drink fizzy yellow pilsners made with adjuncts i.e Bud, Miller, Coors.

I can certainly see how these would all start tasting the same after a few as they begin tasting like shit.

I drink for the flavor of the beer not the $5 buzz tha BMC delivers.

P.S. My homebrewed Pumpkin Ale was tapped on Halloween and was delicious. The keg (5gal) was killed in a little under 3 hours by my friends and parents of trick or treaters to my house.

So, you want to know if I can taste the difference between a Newcastle and a Bud Light... or a Newcastle and another similarly flavored brown ale?

Bill Parcells

You don't like stouts and or Porters? WTF Bill??
I didn't say that..

There are not too many beers I dont like..I'm just saying that tasting them after I have had a couple effects my taste buds..and I cant taste the difference..

Besides..how many stouts can you possibly drink in one night without exploding???

I agree, stouts and porrts are not beers you sit around and drink all night long. As far as your question, yes, it is easy to tell in the event it isn't swill most of the time. It depends what you are drinking.

ENDelt260
11-03-2006, 07:57 PM
Yes..
Newcastle vs. Bud Light.... yes, absolutely. They're light years apart.

Newcastle vs. another brown ale... it's gonna depend on how similar they are, I guess. I'm sure there's brown ales out there you could slip in my glass after I've had a few Newcastles and I wouldn't catch on. There's certainly others I'd notice right away.

So, in your initial post, are you saying you can't tell the difference between a Newcastle and a Bud Light?

Dude - you marinade Raosts with Porter, you don't drink it!

But seriously, the question you put out is obviously too general to answer with anything but opinion.

So mine is, YES - you can totally tell the difference. It's the same as asking if you can tell the difference between Diet Coke and Regular Coke.

Why doesn't dark beer count? Do you mean Stouts, Bocks? There's even a Black Lager, By Sam Adams. Some Wheat beers are Dark.

Anyway, yes, you can taste the difference, at least I can.

I have drunk quite a bit of beer this evening... and I must say that although my ability to distinguish how bitter a particular beer is or pick up on all of the nuances is quite diminished, I can still tell a decent beer from some piss ass megabrewry psuedo-lager. Hmmm... I'm in the mood for some whiskey now, time to crack the Oban.

Furthermore, I don't care what you've had, if you can't tell that you are drinking an IPA, or any pale ale, then you should just stick to Natty Ice, or Bud/Miller Lite; maybe even graduate to Killians

11-03-2006, 10:18 PM
If you're getting high quality beers, you shouldn't need as many (because they have higher alcohol contents) to get drunk and you might be able to maintain your sense of taste that way. Just limit yourself to a few really good beers. For me, that includes beers like Kwak, Leffe, Delerium, etc.
As for microbrews, I'm a big fan of Anderson Valley (especially their oatmeal stout) and of course Boulevard.

StcChief
11-03-2006, 10:18 PM
Do a blind taste test....

Amber Ales vs Lagers, Pilsners.....different taste if it's 1st or 6th.

German Dark Wheats, Doopel Bocks, Oktoberfest

English Sam Smith, Newcastle BrownAle

way different than American Lagers.. Bud, MGD, Coors, Old Mill....

Japense Rice beer, Sapparo, Kirin, Chinese Tingtao, etc.

Back to the thread topic, chiefs4ever, tell me about SamiclausIt's a Christmas beer brewed once a year in Switzerland. It makes the Doppel Bock I brewed look like Miller Lite in comparison (regarding alcohol content). It is drank chilled from a brandy snifter and is very smooth and tasty but it packs a helluva wallop. About 14% ABV.

Edit: OMG!!!! I just saw the grain bill for that brew. 25 pounds of grain and a pound of clear candi sugar for 5 gallons. LMAO

I just returned frommy local homebrew store with ingredients to brew Papazian's "Holiday Cheer".

We kicked the Pumpkin Ale keg in three hours!
Are these tips on brewing accurate??
You seem to be the resident expert

Nice, one thing I love to do (but haven't since I have been here in Florida) and I don't know how much free time you have - is take weekends and do a beer tour. When
i lived in Michigan, I would get a room somewhere and visit/tour breweries, samplng, or just hanging out at a brewhoue/bar/restaurant for the day. I only dabbled in homebrewing, I think I have made about 5 or 6 brews myself. Up there in the NE I would think they are everywhere. It's actually a cool community to get into, the people that homebrew and visit these places - all cool folks for the most part. I love beer, ahhh yes

Well, I don't blame them on the drinking and driving thing, but I would just cab around when vidsiting places.

One of my best friends is a Jersey City cop..he has FOP license plates..when we want to drink and drive..he is the driver..and we never have a problem..I usually cab it though..it's not worth getting caught..my job depends on my license..

Holw cow - I have just found a very very good snack/beer combo!
Today I bought a new flavor of Triscuit - Cracked Black Pepper and Olive oil, and I cut up some slices of Extra Sharp Cheddar (Cracker Barrel) and am eating them with Amber Bock - good stuff, I am quite suprised they work together

Don't post much, I'm on my 2nd 6-pack of miller lite and on to drunkin poker. Taste is the not a virtue at this point. I can drink the heavy stuff with shots of the nectar. However, I can drink the European lager/pilsers like they're water. Give me 3 nut browns or whatever the brewery is selling and I'm 5 and done. Point said, I like beer. I like beer so much that to blow my wad on 5 is sacreligious. Chiefs win last minute field goal, donks lose.

Moose Drool is funny. Definitely a love/hate beer. Check out this (http://outdoorsbest.zeroforum.com/zerothread?id=549071) thread on a fly fishing board for the extremely varied reactions it brings out.
I couldn't make it very far into that thread before losing respect for everyone on that board.

That's friggin' a nice sounding combo. I'll have to try that one soon.

Very sad and jealous of you fuggers right now, as I am working late these nights and getting over a cold. I haven't had a beer since last Sunday.
I'm about to take a three night trip to Dallas, where I usually put a dent in the local liquor supply, but not this week. I plan to abstain.

Though I will close with what was once a weekly beer/snack combo for me: Sunday nights when Band of Brothers was on HBO the very first time it aired, I'd watch it each week with a 6-pack of Beck's and a box of Fiddle Faddle. Every week.
Then I'd play Call of Duty or Wolfenstein until about 3 am and pass out.

The good (bad?) old days....

Nothing wrong with MGD. This is coming from a gal who likes Bud Light, though.
