Anyone enjoying the drink tonight? - Page 25

Workday wrapping up shortly and I'm thirsty for a pint. Now what to choose...never an easy decision!

When in doubt, go with a Guinness.

When it comes to mass produced beers I love Newcastle.

Yeah, that's a nice beer. Unfortunately it's often skunky due to the clear bottles. Same with Heineken and Stella with their green bottles. All good beers just dumb bottling. Classic example of form over function.

Funny you say that. I stopped at a bar that didn't have a great selection of beers on tap so I ended up going with a couple of Guinnesses. Hadn't had one in a while but it's definitely a decent beer to keep in mind especially at places that are lacking in a quality selection of imports and crafts as Guinness seems to be pretty ubiquitous no matter where you are.

This is a cool matrix for Scotch fans -- find out where what you like is on the map.

I don't understand some of these flavors, especially in the lower left quadrant. I see a lot of "iodine" and "salt" listed as flavors, frankly that sounds disgusting.

Oban 14. This is a great, balanced scotch. Very easy drinking! :-)

I've been following this thread for awhile, trying to soak up some valuable information about scotch (the primary point of discussion in here). I've drank scotch on a number of occasions, but have never actually invested in my own bottle to take home and enjoy. And I certainly can't consider myself a connoisseur, as it seems many of you are. Anyways, I was in the liquor store over the weekend and found myself feeling that it was time... I started out with a cheap bottle, as I don't know much else than what I've learned from reading your posts (and of course I couldn't even remember the cheaper bottles that had been recommended).

Like I said, I don't know much about single malts. But I thought this one was pretty decent.

Another dead soldier!

 

 

Tends to be polarizing. Haters' tasting notes include burnt rubber, asphalt and gasoline. Me, I get sea breeze, smoke, tobacco and oak. Good value, too.

Drank 5 Tusker Kenyon beers with dinner my all time fave. Stuffed full of Tusker and oxtail.

Enjoying Warka today. Hard to find Polish beer around so couldn't pass it up.

Ice on the ground with a low of 14 F tonight.

 

It was 82 yesterday.

 

Welcome to Texas...

That's good stuff. I finished off the Springbank and am having just one of the Talisker, I promise.

Someone "left" a bottle of this at my house. Never tried the Fine Oak version. I will report back!:-D

Send them my way!  All my house guests leave are dirty sheets and a vaguely bad smell in the guest room.
