Just finished our keg of Spaten Oktoberfest; now on Kona Big Wave Golden Ale.

Just got back from Maui and was drinking that quite a bit; extremely tasty, non-bitter ale.

My taste in beers is varied.

I like mostly pale beers and ales.

Stella Artois, Heineken, Lowenbrau, Budweiser, Michelob, Chimay, Duvel.

To me, none is the best and none is terrible. There are simply ones that I like.

I'm a stout, IPA, ale man, but like most beers of any style. Some of my favorites are: Anchor's Liberty Ale, Tupper's Hop Pocket and almost any good English or Belgian Ale. Least favorite? Possibly Fosters - yuck.

It's been about 7 years since I had a Terminal Gravity IPA.

Cheers!
