    Or my favourite; Rochefort 8. Oh dear God it's so good. I'm currently out of Rochefort, but I do have some Chimay Blue's left in the basement. Westmalle triple is delicious as well! I'm a huge Trappist beer fan. :boozer:

    /I find Stella a little boring, though. If I want a lighter beer I'll take a Duvel. Mmmmm!

    Well, the only thing I can think of is "Sake Bombs", which is beer+sake.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sake_bomb
    Although it originates in Japan, I've only see Americans do it here...
    For example...[​IMG]
    I dont know the origins of it but only tried it a few times. It made the sake more tolerable though. I would rather just drink hot sake straight.

    All lagers and ales are beers, but not all beers are lagers or ales. :D

    Ales are fermented and stored at room temperature while lagers are fermented and stored at refrigerated temps.

    As a basic rule, ales tend to be sweeter, more robust and sometimes more complex in their flavor, and tend to be cloudy or even opaque. Lagers are crisper, clearer and have more of a "bite", and can be more refreshing. You'd generally drink a lager while mowing the lawn on a hot day and an ale on a cold winter day.

    That's a vast oversimplification of course but is mostly accurate. I'm bottling an ale tonight that is actually refreshing and has a lot of hops in it, but it's not crisp and light like a pilsner or anything like that.

    There are also steam beers, which are lagers produced at ale fermentation and storage temperatures, but you don't see many of those. They were created in San Francisco as a means to lager beer without refrigeration and only Anchor Steam company is licensed to brew steam beer. But you can brew your own of steam beer of course.

    Now i understand.Thanks for clearing that for me.
    Well,then we dont have ale here.
    Just lagers.
    Probably that is the reason why that imported Holland beer i drank the other day tasted so...bland,like you said,without a bite...it was ale.
    Im used to lager then!
    The crisper it is the better!

    There is a homemade brewery in my town.The guy that runs it also runs the pub above "The Spy's nest" and he has all sorts of "custom" beers.
    Light beer,dark,reddish one,even blueberry one.... :)
    Expensive as hell....
