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.

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.

Boston Lager is def where its at. Its just a damn good tasting beer.

Have you tried Sierra Nevada Strider? If not, I recommend it. Its up there in strength with Sam.

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:

I wanted to get some Sam Adams boston lager the past couple weekends, but I can't find a 6 pack cheaper than $10. When I see it on sale, I'll pick it up tho. :P

      My parents visited me over the weekend. Had a great time.  I wish I lived in the same state as the rest of my family so I could see them all more often.

      Finally got around to watching Black Mirror since, you know, I'm bored because I can't work (and as much as I try I just can't bring myself to play anything game wise outside of FFXIV and a little bit of Destiny (I'm stuck at 267 and have no urge to do the Exotic quests and I really don't want to level another character right now)).
      Gotta say this is definitely one of my favorite shows now. Really love how they're stand alone episodes that have no interconnection with each other (well they seem to all take place in the same year and same world (based on little hints I picked up in various episodes) but they're completely separate stories of their own). Some of the episode are really fucked up (the last episode of season 3, while not fucked up, is pretty fucking dark and has given rise to a new fear for me (saying what it is will ruin it if you haven't seen it), still one of my favorite episodes though) and some are really well thought out and emotional (the San Junipero episode is really fucking good).
      All around it's a great fucking series (better be it's British, yeah I have a thing for British television) and I highly recommend it. Figured I'd start Stranger Things this weekend since it sounds like I'll be out of work for another week (according to my surgeon's nurse when I talked to her on the phone, I'll find out more tomorrow) and be ready for when season 2 airs in Oct.

      My mattress has been killing my back and sides for over a year now. I kept adjusting how I was sleeping, got a mattress pad, etc. Screw this thing. I bought a mattress in a box from walmart.com for cheap. $140. I thought about getting a memory foam one but I read that they trap heat too easily so I went with a Slumber 1 brand coil spring.
      Sure as hell this mattress showed up in a box. It was vacummed sealed in a bag, folded and rolled up. When I broke that plastic seal it inflated so damn fast that it made a whistling noise thru the plastic bag as I was cutting it open. lol. It feels pretty comfortable so far but I have to let it air out for "full recovery" for 48 hours. I'd have rather gotten an expensive really nice beauty rest mattress or something else from a mattress store, but I'm tight on funds. This seems decent enough for now.

      Well yesterday was fun. Had really bad abdominal pain and ended up in the ER only to find out I had acute appendicitis and had to have surgery (all in all spent 10 hours in the ER, got home at 4:30 this morning). Now I'm in pain and out of work for at least a week. At least I get Vicadin as my pain killer (whenever my mother pucks the prescription up, I can't drive for the next week so yea).
      Guess it's time to get caught up on my anime and game backlogs.
