After making a poll with having only 8 possible choices I decided that it would be better to have a Beer topic. So, tell us what's your favorite beer, why it is and give us all the necessary information about it so that we can try it when we have the chance.

So, keep on the discussion about this great drink called Beer!

As for me, I've already wrote it: Erdinger (i don't know much about it's short etc) is the best. It is a beer that kneeds in your bottle and it tastes great!

Malduguns
Senca Eksistencialais Tuksums, American pale Ale 5,9%

Decent but I did not felt chinese tea flavor as they said its there, otherwise, good better as rest piss beers there, but in some way its a bot overated

Labietis
Pelašku Velns , Imperial stout 9,9%
Beer has yarrow flavor in in, and I would say best my origin country beer I have drink so far and probably will stay so.

Amazing

Last week we had a craft beer festival in Toulouse. 60 brewers (a bit less in the end I think) over 30 different places in the town. I certainly didn't drink that much but sampled some really nice stuff (unless noted, all were on tap). Also, note that while I'm not into sour beers, I did try some, just because I had to try again (and I don't regret it)!

FRANCE
Brasserie de la Seillone
- La Sauvageonne: coppery amber, really nice malts and caramel tastes.
Brasserie du Pays Flamand
- from their wilde Leeuw series, came a tripel aged in Sauternes barrels. Fantastic, starting like a great belgian tripel and finished like a sweet vin blanc. Amazing!
Elixkir
- Saison Abricot: Season with apricot, thymus and rosemary, nice and funny mix even if I'm not a fan
La Biérataise
- blonde à la tomate: if that slight acidic aftertaste was tomato, well...
La Chamoise
- Dubbel Trubbel: decent amber/brown dubbel, but sadly not on par with the porter
- Juicy Session IPA: nicely fruity/flowery, and not too bitter
- Robuste Porter: really nice porter with a distinct caramel vibe to it
Le Grand Bison
- Raaahaa!: really good IPA, more on the flowery notes and restrained side of things
Moehau (they've got a nice amber IPA with Nz hops, and a good witbier too)
- Blonde: tasty pilsner (but I prefer ales tbh)
- Porter: decent but a bit generic
- Sapin: amber with sapling added, but taste is almost non-existent (it's already better in bottles, and I guess it'll improve by aging)
Ouroboros
- Chimère Liquide: wheat IPA with Vic Secret, good and not too bitter
- Le Sang Des Muses: great stout with a nice fruity hop taste
Page 24 (Brasserie de Saint Germain)
- Belgian Triple Bourbon Barrel: really great and very well balanced!
- Ambrée: decent amber ale
- Imperial Stout Cognac Barrel: great but slightly too much on the Cognac side
Popihn
- Popihn Berliner Weisse: with strawberries, really decent considering I'm not a fan of the genre
- Popihn Black IPA: fantastic, really balanced between strong malts and hops
Collaborations
- Barallel / Ratz - Beer to Pear: 4 malts and cereals with pear added, nice, more on the pear alcohol than pear juice side of things
- Barallel / Brasserie du Pays Flamand / Elixkir - 'twas a great imperial porter, barrel-aged (bourbon), just a bit too much on the bourbon side
- Brasserie du Midi / Joli Rouge - Charlie Brown: brown IPA with hints of pepper in the end, decent but...
- Corrézienne / Manufacture de Bières - Citrus Maximus: American wheat Ale with Kaffir lime and pepper, a really exotic and great twist!
- Iron / La Débauche - Assam Rouge: tea (tasteful) + red lager was, well, not my cup of tea
- Joli Rouge / Ouroboros - Sainte Barbe: I already knew this imperial stout with smoked chili pepper, but enjoying it on tap was an immense pleasure
- La Braxéenne / La Garonnette - Tripel IPA: hops first, then more and more malt as it got warmer. Good work!
- bonus: tasted Know Your Enemy, an IPA craft-brewed specially for a burger restaurant here (it's still very rare in France). Less-than-average IPA for the beer lover, but it's good to see the craft beer world spill "in real life"...

Denmark
Rocket Brewing
- IPA: I don't know if it was The Problem Solver or Zero Gravity, but their sour take on the genre sure is interesting.

Spain
Basqueland Brewing Project
- Arraun Amber Ale: almost IPA in its bitterness, yet the malts were there
- Lervig No'rway José: another IPA (that I already knew in bottles), but where fruits give way to something more 'resinous'

UK
Black Metal Brewery (they're from Scotland and it shows in their beers)
- Gates Of Valhalla: real tasty oatmeal pale ale
- Will-o'-the-Wisp: juniper smoked ale, really acidic but in a different way
Lines Brew Co
- Double IPA Blend: fantastic, the sour blend makes it easily drinkable yet strong (8,1%)
- Imperial Porter: decent and quite subtle
- NE-NZ IPA: hoppily flavorful but not overbearingly so, great stuff
Mad Hatter (weren't part of the brewers in residence, but as I stumbled upon that one...)
- Orange 'N' Basil: sour, so not my cup of tea, but the mix is definitely interesting
Siren Craft Brew
- White Tips: IPA and wit work very well together, but this one is simply outstanding!

USA
Brooklyn Brewery
- Bel Air Sour: not too sour, so that was fine with me
- Brooklyn 1/2 Ale: a season light in alcoohol but not in taste. Great!
- Brooklyn Sorachi Ace Season: the famous. I did try that hop elsewhere, and it's definitely weird.
- Improved Old Fashioned: felt like drinking a weird mix of beer and stuff like jagermeister. Not for me, but happy I tried it nonetheless.
- Scorcher IPA: nice classical IPA

[no image for the Sauternes-barrel one]

Edit: pfew, done. Nice record to use later.

like I said, really Scottish. Strong, with hints of smoke or peat on top of the beer. Juniper was really acid but not like your usual sour

Where the bleeping bleep do you get this nonsense from? Oatmeal is totally different to corn, it has nothing to do with corn. And oatmeal stous poor people stout? That is totally laughable. Nothing to do with being cheaper. usually oatmeal stouts are more expensive than stouts that don't have any oats in them.

it's probably because they can be really smooth to the palate... I guess he reacts the same way to milk (lactose) stouts
