platinum's not bad...tastes like....bud...
The blue bottles of platinum bud caught my eye too, I guessed it would taste pretty close to regular old bud though so didn't pick any up... I don't mind an occasional bud, it is pretty good for a macro beer.. way better than Canadian, Corona, etc.

I'm definitely a beer geek, but not a beer snob.

I enjoy Cariboo, Budweiser, Alexander Keiths, Sleeman, even though they're macros. I understand and respect why they're some peoples' go to beer.

Corona is outright awful, though; there's no other way to describe it. It's pseudo mexican, bland, yellow piss. I've never understood why it's such a popular beer and never will. Especially given the wide availability of Sol.

Not really a beer "enthusiast" neither but do drink to enjoy. Moromoto beer's taste quite similar to the "nutty" flavor you get in Japanese restaurant teas (correct me if i'm wrong). It's really quite unique

Yep...went to the liq store today to pick up the ususal Kronenbourg's and saw the price of 12btl Corona coming to 29.99...LOL. Rather drink grape juice

Sleemans Honey Brown has been my go-to for the past couple months. I like to mix it up though, Grolsch, Rickards White on occasion.. heffs are a good summer beer I find. Everytime I'm on a patio, pints of pale ale are on the bill.

My favourite kind of beer is a lot.

Had a bottle yesterday.
First thoughts is that the ginger is much more apparent than the previous GIB ginger beer.
I think I prefer their original ginger beer but I'll have to have another bottle of the Ginja before I pass final judgement.

I don't usually drink but I have taken a liking to Steam Whistle beer. Goes down very smooth.

My local beer store. Might be 6 packs only, but they're sold outside of variety packs for sure.

I've been meaning to recommend this for a while, as it's been my go-to ale since I found out about it a few months ago:

Bellhaven Best


It's like the Scottish version of Kilkenny. It has a nitrogen widget, like Kilkenny and Guiness, but it's fastened to the bottom of the can instead of a free-floating sphere. I think it works better when it's at the bottom.

It's normally $2.40/can at BCL. I think it's on sale right now for $2.10.

picked up the GIB Ginja Ninja, havent tried it yet its still cooling down, also picked up this new one from Philips:



i find Philips IPA's to be over the top hoppy, i wouldnt expect anything else from a beer called lord of the hops lol

anyone who lives in and around Lougheed/North Road, the cold beer store that is kind of attached to Foggy Dew has an amazing craft beer selection

Heh I'm enjoying a Phillips Amnesiac right now.

Edit: Don't mean to be a Debbie Downer but just realised that's a Parallel 49 brew not Phillips.

Phillips Amnesiac and Driftwood Fat Tug are my go-to DIPA's.

Enjoying a Driftwood Clodhopper at the moment, I strongly recommend it.

Oh yea sorry was thinking Phillips

The amnesiac is tasty, I find that some IPAs though just try to be all hops and nothing else with alot if craft brews, no depth

Freakin. This.

Friends make fun of me for bringing Sol when their main beer is Corona.

I agree.

Give Phillips Hop Circle IPA a try, if you haven't. Hop Circle is definitely an IPA, but not a DIPA, so there's much more depth overall.
