    I've been known to occasionally imbibe alcoholic beverages from time to time, but my favorite one of all is easily beer. Cold, not too strong, easy drinkin' beer. I'm something of a connosieur.

    In terms of picking a favorite, it's very difficult. There are all kinds of categories of beer, all deserving, all with their shining stars. Light beer, craft beer, beer of any given nationality or region, lager, ale, porter, I could go on and on. And I appreciate each one for what it offers.

    I don't know which one is my all time favorite, but I will name some standouts that I think are very worthy of trying.

    Hansa - ah, German beer. Surely among the world's very best. In the case of Hansa, it's heavy but not too heavy. Hoppy but not too hoppy. An amazing, savory balance.

    Carling - this is a cut-rate Canadian beer that is just plain remarkable for the price you pay for it. It's your typical light lager prevalent throughout North America and the Caribbean, but Carling has an incredibly pleasing taste. Must be that great water they have in Canada.

    Tecate - this very well might be my favorite in the whole world. This stuff is a liquid organic tortilla to the palate, with a hint of corn in its bouquet and a just-right savory balance. It's incredible when consumed cold, but if possible, get it in its native Mexico. A night-and-day difference in terms of the subtle flavors to be appreciated.

    Pabst Blue Ribbon - What can I say? I know it's largely considered cheap swill, but that is a misconception to my thinking. If you ask me, it's the essential American beer. Not too heavy, not too bitter, but with just the right amount of hops and that generic barley taste American beers are known for.

    Anyone else have a unique choice or favorite, or any thoughts on what the best beer is?

    I prefer 3 types, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Bud Lite, and Miller Lite.

    Though I can drink just about any beer that is put in front of me.

    Yuengling is my favorite domestic, but it is very hard to come by in my state.

    For imports I like Stella, Peroni, Asahi, and Sapporo.

    Lately I have been drinking Magners Irish Cider.

    I was drinkin like 8 - 12 Bud Lights daily for a long ass time. I haven't drank in 22 days though. I've easily saved at least 88 bucks, although I already put the saved money towards a G1 Megatron lol

    Oxford Brakspear Gold. I only found it during one christmas season one year, and haven't been able to find it since. I would commit atrocities for a steady supply of that beer, I think.

    Guiness. Ballantine Ale is good. I'll drink Becks or Fosters if nothing else is available. I can't hang with things like Bud/Coors etc. Not really a fan of cans either.

    A favorite beer. Its impossible for me to pick one. It really is impossible for me to choose one. It is far easier for me to describe what i enjoy in a beer. I prefer beers that offer a reasonable balance of sweet maltiness and hop bitterness. High IBUs does not mean a good beer. I do love a hoppy beer in terms of use of finishing hops. I love nice hop aroma and flavor especially from hops of the cascade family or the german tetnanger family. Fuggles are also a great finishing hop. Also good head good color. Most important is a clean finish.

    I cannot stand anything and i mean ANYTHING brewed with adjuncts. When they use corn or rice to lighten beer yet keep alcohol up it makes the beer taste awful. Examples of beers that use adjuncts and taste like it, Bud, Miller, Coors, Heineken, Corona, etc. All of these beers have the off flavor the adjuncts create and a nasty finish and i avoid them like the plague.

    Just reading that made me thirsty. You should write the description on beer labels.
