Back in my 'drinking days' (16-21, geesh that was a long time ago) whenever I had a couple PBR's I'd wake the next morning with the killer pounding headache. Nothing else EVER did that to me, beer, wine, whiskey, pure grain...all good, PBR's, bad.

I had to work to get hung over when I was (not that much) younger. Now, I can't do more than two light beers without getting ill. I don't even bother getting close to the line today.

tea is my coffee.  i'm in the "i don't like coffee" group...im also in the "i don't care too much for beer group" as well, especially ipa's.  can't stand the bitterness.  there are some beers i like...i find lagers and porters to be in my zone.  anything too hoppy, though, is just not for me.  

and after all the different bourbons i've tried in the last couple years, i still don't like scotch.

It probably was, but since then, every time I drink Heineken (which is, admittedly, rare), I taste the flavors from that taste test.

Fav beer for the last 4-5 years has been Weihenstephaner Vitus. Another excellent brew is Lexington Brewing Co. Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale.

Moved this here out of respect to storm mode, but suspect some others may be interested...

Care to provide the link to the soundings app.  Also, is there an easy to read tutorial on the soundings chart with some examples.  Understand the warm nose concept etc, but would be great to see some examples of where the profile represents "normal" snow, heavy snow, sleet, freezing rain etc...   

Thanks

No I mean literally that's what it reminded me of, even when it wasn't "skunked". Just gross stuff.

Yeah, Heineken is pretty much the worst mainstream beer out there. Such a lingering aftertaste too. Definitely a collection of perfumes and chemicals to approximate beer versus a beer itself.

Fully agree - Heineken here is a much different taste than in Europe.  Still, even the European version w/o all the additives is blah.  Especially with so many alternatives in Europe to pick from.  Never understood the appeal other than they have a strong marketing department.

Too many good beers to have a favorite for me. Overall I like the high gravity stuff, so Imperial stouts and IPAs.

Been on a DFH 120 min IPA kick lately.

Well see, that was your first mistake.  Coffee with ice is the devil.   I never used to drink it either...but I find it a solution to me hating the world in the morning.  I was never a morning person.

I drink OJ in the morning.  Never really need a kick to get going.  Guess I got used to getting up and getting going working construction to get through college.  Working with power tools gets your attention.  

The ice coffee that I succumbed to 2x was from a wood vender in Japan.  The wife of the owner brought us ice coffee when we placed a big order.  (you wouldn't have believed this place - it was right out of some history novel).  She was about 150 years old and I didn't want to offend her, so I gulped it down in one nauseating swig.  Was all I could do to keep up upchucking it.  When we went back to pickup the order a week later she brought us more.  That was the last time anything resembling coffee entered my digestion system.  Don't even like coffee tasting chocolate etc.  But to those consignors like yourself, enjoy.

My friends and I did a blind cheap beer taste test, 10 beers, back in the day.

 

Had a bartender pour in 4 cups.

 

Unanimously the top cheap beer was PBR. The worst was surprisingly Heineken.

hahah PBR...  right up there with Iron City, Hudepohl, and old dog light (Old Milwaukee Light).  The combination brings back memories of college - at least the parts I remember when not in a drunken stupor.  Then moving to Germany 3 years after college brought an awaking to what REAL bier is all about...   never forget my first real Pils...   was a spiritual event.

It's the one beer to have when you're having more than one. Maybe that's why.

heineken doesn't taste bad to me at all.  if anything, it just doesn't taste like a true beer.  it's light.

scotch, however, tastes like a bad euro run.

I'll keep an eye out for it, but I don't actually have access. I lift it off other forums when it's posted (typically the NE forum) and since they aren't that interested in this storm I haven't been able to find it.

Can someone get us access to the UK snow map? I know flawed algorithm, but I want to see the orientation of the shield.

Agree Heineken is pretty terrible.  It feels like you haven’t brushed your teeth in four days after drinking it with the horrible beer breath.  My go to for events is the Dogfish 60 Minute.
