Do you like the taste of beer?

We see p[eople in TV having a great time drinking beer, teenagers aren't "cool" unless they drink beer and it's a drink that people spend millions if not billions of dollars on each year. I tried one that seem's pretty popular (Heineken) and to be honest, it tastes terrible. I've tried Corona, terrible. Some India Pale Ale at my cousins house, terrible yet again. To me, beer tastes terrible. (perhaps I have only tasted a mere fraction of the stuff, but from everything I have had, it's terrible.)

No, way. I would perfer a drink to any beer product, even if I have to drink it straight.

To me, most beer tastes delicious. Especially pale ale. I just can't get enough.

Never actually had any. Never had the desire to, either. Not that I think it's wrong; I just don't care enough about it to motivate myself to get some.

I actually love the taste of it. One reason Heineken may taste horrible to you, is that Heineken is a lager, which is darker and more bitter than say, a Miller or a Bud. And light beer...well, best not to talk about "half-beers" . It is an acquired taste, you won't love it the first time, but drink a few more and you will .

I love the taste of beer, but you've gotta go for the right stuff.

To be honest, it sounds like you've tried some of the "worst" beers out there. Heineken is good, but it's kind of an acquired taste. A little bit more bitter than most other ones, and it's a take it or leave it kind of beer. Corona is a step above horse piss. Not a very big step, but a step nonetheless. IPA's are also horribly bitter, and definately not one of my favorites.

If you're looking for good messican beer try something that costs less but is tons better. Start with Dos Equis or Pacifico. Corona is over-hyped and overmarketed, and is the preferred beverage of collar-popping fratboys everywhere just because it's "cool and exotic".

Stygma's in the best place for beer, Colorado has tons of great stuff to offer. Laughing lab is a pretty good light beer, one of my favorites. Fat tire is another awesome one, and probably my second favorite, albeit a bit darker.

Another good light one to try is some of the stuff from Karl Strauss. Not sure if you'll get it out there, but it's well worth checking out.

Remember, hype != good. Ask around, find people that aren't talking up labels, but talking up good beer.

Yes, I liked quality beers. However, I do not drink alcohol, so I have not had any beer for quite a few years. (Probably 5 years, or more, too lazy to think about it).

Anyway, I haven't drunk any beer for years but I remember the taste of course. I especially loved white beer on hot summer days. My favorite was Hoegaarden, a small Dutch brand.

I like the taste of good beer. For the silly people among us who think Heineken is a good, strong beer, it's not. It's piss coloured water.
If you want the taste of good beer you'll have to go for Belgian beers such as Westmalle and Duvel or Dutch beers such as La Trappe and, a bit cheaper, Hertog Jan. I'm not sure what you import in other countries but people abroad should really lose the ridiculous idea that Heineken is good.

I prefer "harder" stuff, myself. That made it sound like I do drugs... I don't Vodka, on the other hand

So no, I don't really like the taste of beer. I drink it anyway, occassionally.

Yes, I very much enjoy the taste of beer, but it has to be [i]good[i] beer to be enjoyed, as others have pointed out above.

The one I drink the most is Hansa, a somewhat smallish norwegian brand. Not too expensive, while still with a good taste. When at one of my favourite bars, I drink only Guinness, at the other Old Speckled Hen. The last one is a very, very good English beer.

I have to admit though, my first 'favourite' was Heineken, because of it's bitterness compared to a couple of other (mostly norwegian) brands, but those days are far gone now

I am 'great', and yet... I stumble.

...Yet Stubb would provide a link to where a quote is taken from... How's -that- for an URL. ;] ... How about -this- as the #1 result? ;p Explanation: PEBKAC HELP! I'm being repressed!. . . I love beer and WP.

Beer = Godly Goodness

Best Beers in the wolrd are European,


Fav Beers being:

Heineken : Must be brewed and bottled (or Canned) in Amsterdam : Aussie Heiny is... how can i put this politely... VERY SH*TE!
Best Heineken is Canned or on tap.

Tenants : tasty sweet Irish Lager.

Cruzcampo : Lovely cheap Spanish beer, flavour has to grow on you but a top notch beer.

Never liked beer. I hear it's an acquired taste...but I see no need to acquire the taste

Sometimes I drink a beer, but if I get a choice of drinks and it wouldn't bother anyone getting something else then I'd definately go for another kind of drink.

Don't like any alcoholic beverage really. Well except for the sweet stuff with which you don't taste the alcohol...but why not just drink lemonade then?

Beer is an aquired taste, many people don't like at first. Especially if you have only drunk the more sweeter alcoholic drinks first (e.g. cider, peach schnapps e.t.c.). Whats more is that beers are not similar at all since the term 'beer' can also mean ale & larger too. Tanglefoot (one of my favourites) tastes nothing like Hoegaarden.
