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 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

      Holy cow there seems to be a subscription crate for everything now. AC Filters, Clothes, Bras, Candy, etc. I actually just signed up for Umai Crate. It seems to be the most unique and best value. Its just a box full of different Japanese instant ramens. I'll report if its any better than the cheap shitty ramen you can get at the grocery store. For $25 a month, the box seems to be full of 7-9 bags/boxes/cups of various types. If I'm not impressed with the first box, I'll cancel it and feel like it was worth trying something interesting. I watched a few youtube unboxings and taste tests and it seems to be pretty well received, even in the comments on their facebook posts. I recently had authentic ramen at a local hole in the wall and it was amazing. I always thought ramen was just that shitty Nissin stuff. Some of the videos I watched, its def a little more complex than just pouring hot water into noodles and a tiny spice packet. Some of them have multiple packets to enter in before and after water is added. And apparently there are suggested fresh add ons you can buy separately at the grocery store. Things you obviously can't dehydrate like hard boiled eggs.

      Being in the grocery business for over a decade and a half you see a lot of product flops, successes, bait & switches, and other flat out BS. In one year I watched Kellogg's decrease the size of their cereal box contents by .5oz-3oz multiple times. They kept the box height the same and made them marginally slimmer each time to make it less noticeable. When Eternal water first hit the shelves it was from "Natural Springs in Norway". One day a coworker noticed it tasted different, and then noticed the bottle now said "From a municipal water source in California". I've seen Edy's Ice Cream downsize their containers, and then return them to the old size a year later calling it "Now 20% more!" Nah, you just gave back what you took. The biggest scam of the century is Halo Top ice cream and everyone that's copying it. Halo Top is just jet puffed ice cream. Breyers makes their version, and now Ben & Jerry's is going to make their line of it. You're paying for deceptive portion control. The only reason they are "low calorie" is because there is less ice cream in the cup. Since a pint is by volume and not by actual weight, most people fall for the this trick. You're paying the same, if not more money for the ice cream version of a bag of chips half filled with air. Don't support this crap. Just get regular ice cream and eat less per serving. On a final note, Breyers doesn't even call their product ice cream anymore. Its "Frozen Dairy Dessert". WTF I'm glad I have access to Blue Bell. Its still a half gallon, and its still ice cream. http://www.mouseprint.org/2013/01/21/breyers-converts-ice-creams-to-frozen-dairy-desserts/

      I've owned 3 cars now. My first car was a 1993 Nissan Maxima. It had 110k miles on it and it served me well until 215k miles. An alternator and a break hose were the only major repairs I've ever had to have done on it. Then I got a 2004 Mazda3 which also served me well from 11k miles to 80k miles, a fuel purge sensor was the only major repair I ever had to do on it. I'd still have it if some kid didn't pull out in front of my and total it. With the insurance check I should have just put a nice down payment on a brand new car... but at the time I didn't want a car note so I got the only thing I could find... a 2004 Ford Mustang. It had less miles than my Mazda so I figured it was like I just had this car all along since it was the same year. Wrong, its been the biggest POS I've ever owned. I've had to have the power steering pump replaced twice, major exhaust work twice, serpentine belt, entire ABS system, read axle, front calipers, CV joint, motor fan, and the transmission that was put in to replace the already busted on they tried to sell the car with, is about to go out again... to top it all off the paint just started crumbling off the car and now its rusting. I bought it with 65k miles and now it has 116k miles. Now that my college loan is almost finally paid off, I'm looking to get a brand new Honda Civic or VW Golf. The Civic is a car I've always wanted since wanting a car, but the Golf is very nice and has more horsepower. I'll never buy another ford car again. I remember when my exhaust system basically fell off the car because the manifold cracked... the muffler shop I went to basically said "Yeah this is pretty common at 90k miles for this car" which I was pretty much at... wtf. Screw Ford. I've never had so many catastrophic failures with a vehicle.

      I'm sick of winter. This crap needs to end. Another day of driving on snow/ice covered roads in zero degree temps that are so cold the rock salt wont melt anything. Its like every road is made of gravel and my car is bouncing all over the place. At least the tall hill roads are getting treated with strong as hell rock salt of a different blend to ensure melting and to prevent accidents. But all other streets are complete ass to drive on.
