Last night in chat we were goofing off as usual and a few of us were partaking of beverages and one member says hey Mark, why dont you start a thread on those German beers with a review and rating system. I kind of like the idea. I enjoy alot of different beer from around the world from the 60 and 90 minute IPA's to my favorite, the Bavarian brewed beers. There is a store in Fayetteville North Carolina that caters to fine wine heads, cigar puffers, and "real" beer lovers like myself so I keep an inventory on hand of bier (that's beer to you domestic drinkers) you don't find in grocery stores for those mellowing moments. I realize everyone has a different taste pallet but this will be all in fun and and education . If anyone is interested in contributing or determining in what areas we could rate different biers please do. Some of my thoughts are as follows 1) Smell 2) Color 3) Taste 4) After taste 5) Would I drink it again 6) Bier for the masses 7) Body 8) Price 9) Alcohol content Like many other people my venture into drinking "real" bier was one in which I had to aquire the taste for but once the taste was aquired there was no turning back. Here is a photo of a few in my stock I drink on a regular basis.
