The Yuengling Porter and Black and Tan sound awesome, but their Lagers and Ales are made with American Cascade hops, which is pretty strong. Unfortunately, so many American craft beers are made with Cascade hops, which I'm just not partial to.


Leave it to Bryan the Science Guy to inject a little science into a beer discussion. \:D

I didn't know that. I'm sure different hops will influence the flavor. I think I am partial to roasted malts.

Try Theakston's Olde and Peculier.


I had never heard of this until I looked it up. Sounds like a great darker English Ale. If I see it available, I'm definitely going to try that one.


Just checked, I had it wrong...it's Theakston's Old Peculier.

It is a darker ale. It's been a few years since I've had one, and my tastes have matured since then. I need to re-try this one. Might like it even more.

Best consumed listening to classic Iron Maiden...especially the beer's namesake song, "The Trooper". \:\)

BSK, have you checked out the selection at Trader Joe's? I know almost nothing about beer, but it appears they have some brands/types you won't find in the average grocery store. Pretty sure you can buy in singles vs a six pack.


No, I haven't been to Trader Joe's. Pretty good beer selection?

I mainly do my beer shopping at the Filling Stations, Craft Brewed, and Frugal Macdoogal's.


I'm not sure how good the selection is as I'm not a beer fan, but it appears to be a good selection to me. If they carried bourbon I would be paying more attention. \:D

Maybe these links can help.

If Memphis Krogers sell it, Nashville ones should as well. I'll look. I'm actually amazed at how many craft beers Krogers now carries.

As I was telling moondawg in a PM, I do love brown ales, porters, and stouts, and drink one with dinner almost every day. However, they aren't beers you drink when you're thirsty. You drink them for the pronounced flavors. I need to find a beer that can be downed when you're hot and thirsty, but isn't too hoppy. I prefer malt forward, low hops beers, which is the English style of beer-making. With hipsters driving the craft beer market in the U.S., just about every paler beer made here is very hops heavy. I want to find a low hops pale or amber beer for summer drinking.
