A former Beerpal, I was "surfsleez". Now I'm KendoSurf. Always a fan of cheap-drinkable beers. I gave up on Milwaukee's Best long ago...too many formula changes, not for the better! I like to try microbrews also; Ruthless IPA is a recent favorite. After leaving Beerpal, I joined FretPlay and eventually became a Co-Administrator. FretPlay was a guitar tab site which included chat forums, but it no longer exists. C'est La Vie. So then, what's doing these days? :)

  • Yuengling Golden Pilsner

    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    A nice-enough German-Style Pilsener, made in the US. I believe it's free of says a former Yuengling Sales Rep. Very balanced flavor, hops are easily discerned without being overwhelming. This may be Yuengling's Best brew.

    This Amber Ale aka Red Beer aka Altbier (depending on the reviewer) is brewed in NYS. "Good, evenly balanced flavor" was my first impression before I read any reviews. It's a fairly deep amber with beige foam. Nothing spectacular. For the high grocery store price I'd hope for better. Recent reviews from another site.

    New Formula? I see differences in previous reviews from the product I've recently discovered. Third Shift Amber Lager is now a copper-colored brew with light beige foam. No appreciable aroma. I like American Style Lager, and I think this is a good one! Probably no match for Erlanger, Schlitz's now defunct flagship beer...but nice enough. I realized when I bought it that it was from Coors. Anyway it's more flavorful than the average macro and has a pleasantly subtle lingering bitterness. For $11.97 per twelve pack @ Walmart, I will probably buy this again from time to time.

    I just brought home a 30 rack of MHL. First time I've done so for a while...Genesee Cream Ale and Extra Gold Lager are cheaper than MHL at the local Wally World. :D Remember...MHL was rated Good-but-bland by Consumer Reports years ago. That is to say, it was a benchmark product for the American Mass Market Macroswill category. And it's less expensive than the allmighty Bud. What's not to like?

    Genesee Cream Ale is cheap and agreeably flavorful macroswill. This beer, (and Extra Gold Lager), are my basic everyday choices. Much better than regular Genesee Beer...and I'm afraid to even TRY Genesee Light! Walmart doesn't have a large stock of quality micros but there are a few. As we all know, price and reputation do not guarantee great quality or enjoyment on the part of the individual purchaser. But enough philosophical rambling; and besides, I believe I've met or exceeded the mandatory 150 character limit! :D
