    I had a bottle of the Chimay Blue last weekend. As with cigars, beers either hit or miss with me and the Chimay was a miss. I can't really explain why, but it just didn't hit my "sweet spot" for lack of a better term. It was a good beer, I can appreciate why some love it, but it just didn't fit my bill (neither taste or cost).

    Just went to Vendome today and bought a sixer of Spaten. I did see SA White there and was tempted to buy that. Next time. Aside from Oktoberfest, the White is the only Sam I enjoy.

    Had the Sam Adams White at the watch party Sunday in Long Beach. It was surprisingly good, so I had a couple more.

    I'm with you on this. I had some at a restaurant on Saturday night, and was not impressed at all. It didn't help that I had been to the Back Abbey in Claremont a few hours earlier, which has such a great selection of Belgian beers. Chimay paled in comparison.

    Well I had the Chimay Blue with dinner, and was felt it was very ordinary at best. Maybe it was a bad bottle, but it wasn't a beer that excited me in the least. Maybe the fact that I had enjoyed a glass of the St Bernardus ABT12 an hour earlier may have influenced my opinion. Now the ABT 12 was excellent.

    Alright Dunkel fans.(Especially Beerman and AB$) This is very good Dunkel. I like it as much as Hofbrau's. Definitely better than Warsteiner's




    The beer is organic now, the bottle is a little different

    Well I tried a Spaten last night. I poured it into a glass and thought to myself, "Who the hell put Budweiser in this Spaten bottle?" It was okay but it reminded me of something a poster said here, and I paraphrase, "Fizzy gold beers suck."

    Being of some German descent, I was a bit embarrassed at the light, golden, fizzy liquid that looked lighter in color than apple juice. It tasted too similar to any domestic lager. It's the kind of beer I would have no qualms giving to a girl who wants a beer and can't handle an ale.

    Well, at least Hofbrau was a winner.

    This one was really good. Nice cloudy caramel color, not overwhelming by any sense of the imagination. Subtle, delicious, and nice. Could drink 2 or 10 of these. Tasted like bananas.
