I just thought I'd make my personal favorite Top 5 beer lists, that excludes the specialty types.

Amber Beer Top 5

5.

Its a great tasting wheat ale that oddly enough, goes well with a slice of orange. Its very smooth and not too strong for those that stay away from the more potent type. I recommend all of its seasonal brews as well. (especially the pumpkin ale)

4.

Sierra_Nevada_Beer1.jpg

Sierra Nevada is a little stronger than other beers that are not dark, but it has a very pleasant taste that is rich with hops. Its worth a try at least. If you like it, I recommend all of its other brew styles.

3.

Ah Yuengling, how I love thee. Probably the most least filling beer I know. Smooth, refreshing, and pretty light tasting despite its darker complexion. This beer holds a special place in my heart. Its America's oldest brewery... how could it not be good?

2.

COORS.jpgcoors108c.jpg

Coors light and original. The medium of all beers amongst people with different tastes. I have friends that are bud fans, miller fans, and what not, but it seems everyone can meet in the middle with Coors. And why not? Its a damn good beer and a highly affordable price. I've recommended it to people that couldn't stomach beer and they've enjoyed it. definitely a friendly starter beer to new beer drinkers.

1.

Samuel Adams Boston Lager is my all time favorite beer. It costs a bit more, but its well worth it. It is one of the most bold tasting beer's out there. The hops are fully realized with every sip. If its too much for you, Sam Adams Light is just as good with half strength in taste. In fact, their light brew won an award in the world beer competition in which there was no light category. Pretty impressive.

Next blog, I will cover Dark Beers.

Yuengling was always good, but after a while it started tasting a bit heavy to me. But then I switched to Labatt Blue Light, and even that started tasting heavy to me... Coors light ftw!!!

I think I'll try Blue Moon and Samuel Adams boston lager tho. Both are sold at the local grocery store here too.

Ah good old Sam Adams, can never go wrong with a good old bottle of that. Sadly it's the only Amber Beer I can handle, others just taste like crap.

Definitely try the Sam Adams Sledge, can never go wrong with a bottle of that after a long days work.

After looking at that picture with the frosty mug, it makes me wonder if beer really tastes better out of a frosty mug or straight from a bottle or can. Anyone have a preference?

Ah good old Sam Adams' date=' can never go wrong with a good old bottle of that. Sadly it's the only Amber Beer I can handle, others just taste like crap.

I'll try to pick up a six pack this weekend. :beer:

      The two best anime this season so far are Goblin Slayer and SSSS.Gridman. Goblin Slayer caused a huge uproar over its first ep.. which honestly is stupid. Plenty of acclaimed anime have had an uncomfortable rape scene. A heavily censored scene that took up all of 10 seconds of the episode. However, whether intended or not, it got everyone talking about it. After that, it resumed as a normal but violent anime. It also wasn't random, it established the goblin's as pure evil. SSSS.Gridman is your standard over the top Trigger mecha anime... but it starts out off the rails. I don't see how they can get much more bat shit crazy. That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime, Zombie Land SAGA, and Double Decker: Doug and Kirill have all been fun and quirky though. Overall I'm enjoying this season even if I'm skipping on a few of the shows.

      I got my new fridge hooked up over the weekend. Built in water and ice maker is amazing. I never realized how convenient that really is. Thanks goes out to the inlaws and aunt for the amazing gift.

      This super white default theme is bugging my eyes. x_x I was busy all week/weekend again doing insulation work on the house. Couple that with a power and internet outage last week and all my free time keeps getting sucked away. I have a new fridge and dishwasher getting delivered this weekend so I'll be a bit busy with that. Especially since I don't know if the electric is actually hooked up correctly for the dishwasher outlet. I keep trying to play a bit of God of War at night and I end up pausing it and walking away to get more crap done.  ugh.. I need more free time. I'm tapped out almost all of my vacation too. I have a few days left scheduled for the end of the year. Maybe I'll be able to play that new episode of GW2 by then.

      Black friday sales started early so I bought a 4k HDR 50 inch samsung tv. I'm pleased with it. The blacks this tv gets still blows my mind. I doubt I'll buy a PS4pro, but in the mean time my regular PS4 has HDR.. but I only have one game that actually takes advantage of it and thats Uncharted 4. I don't think I'll be replaying it any time soon just to see the graphical difference, but regardless this tv upscales like a champ. Everything looks significantly better. Thats a hell of a lot better upscaling than blu ray players do for dvds. Its a night and day difference.
      I put on Rise of the Tomb Raider last night and Battlefield 1 and the quality is top notch. Game mode works with HDR for this tv, so I can put on game mode for reduced input lag which is nice without affecting quality. It also has bitstream audio pass through which works great with my old receiver for surround sound.
      The tv has Motion rate 120 instead of true 120 hz refresh rate which I didn't know was a different thing when I was buying the tv. But thats ok, I doubt the PS5 when it eventually comes out will even come close to 60 fps at 4k and my current pc graphics card will no way in hell do any better than 60 fps at 4k so I'm pretty much set for future proofing at the moment.. at least for the next 4-5 years probably. And motion rate 120 is a bit nuts. I had to turn the judder down on that. It makes everything so fluid its like everything was filmed like a soap opera.  I never realized more fps on a movie would look so different.  But the biggest downside is for animated titles. It cause a bit too much of a blur effect as the tv basically fills in the games to increase the fps.. its not good for animated shows.
