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?
