Kinda silly I know though I’m curious to see what happens. Delete if too damn silly.
I’d get rid of pale ale, bored of the omnipresent buggers.
Hazy. I like them…. But there are too damn many of them where I am. Some breweries are pumping them out instead of making something different for once.
Pilsner is boring at best. Pale ale is ok. Stout is blah if dry but great otherwise. Hazy IPA is an abomination.
You must’ve had too few proper pilsners. A proper, somewhat rustical Czech one is anything but boring.
I think the Stout has to go Gluten Free, then I can drink it!
Toss up between Hazy & Pilsner for me, but would be sad whichever
Hazy and it’s not even close. I also like how places brew a cloudy IPA/DIPA and call it a hazy.
Hazy. We can have proper IPAs still right? The hit to miss ratio on hazys is way too high.
I call them cloudys, most make a proper Hefeweizen look bright!
Well I like all those styles but going by my average scores I would have to say Pilsner to go. I’ve had some great Czech and German ones in particular but I guess there are quite a few average ones out there.
All my gushing 4.5 ratings might suggest otherwise, but hazy of course.
I’ve had 271 pilsners and not 1 was worthy of more than a 4.0. And damn few came even close to that. In fact only pale lager, malt liquor and low alcohol consistently score lower in terms of style for me.
Nah, fair 'nuff, apart from personal tastes, it’s partly a local market thing (I have 1050 Bohemian pilsners to your 55 for example, 433 pilsners to your 255 - and I’m not actively seeking out either usually) + I guess you’re not getting the freshest of the fresh and the best of the best from Europe, and I see you gave quite decent scores to regular Urquell and Únětické, which are good, but not top tier in CZ, partly the fact that they will rarely score around a 4 even to me due to the nature of the site - and yet, in a heap of not-having-a-tasting circumstances, I’d take them, personally, over almost any examples of the other styles listed.
I kinda wish for you/anyone really who hasn’t had the chance to be able at some point to get proper fresh Czech, even German stuff, for a better perspective of things.
Oh damn check out all the cool kids saying they don’t like hazies and pilsners.
Oooh, does that mean I’m a cool kid? Do I get a badge?
Yeah, Pils is not a style that holds up great to age and travel I am sure. It would definitely be interesting to try some of these fresh in their native lands. But I can really only opine on what I have experienced - and here in the US. Pilsner is a very poorly executed style that I tend to avoid unless I am getting it as a throw in for a flight.
