Anyone Like Beer Mix Drinks/Flavoured Beer?

Sun Feb 26, 2006 2:51 am

Usually I am drinking wheat beer but today I bought a nice six pack Beck's Green Lemon to have something different, it is tasting very refreshing and it is not as bitter as pure beer, the only problem is that there is only 2.5% alcohol in it.

These Tequila flavoured beers like Desperados or Salitos are also nice from time to time but they are pretty expensive. In the past I didn't like them very much but lately I drunk a few bottles when I visited a friend and since then I drink the stuff frequently.

Anyone else who likes beer mix drinks or flavoured beer?

Has anyone ever tried these beers with cherry or orange flavour (I think they are from Belgium)?

No. I'm not a woman.  Wink

Anyway, I'll gladly buy my $10 thirty of Natty Ice with its near 6% alcohol content.

Just don't start drinking Zima.

Sounds tasty, wheat beer, coke and lemongrass. I will definitely try to get the stuff when I am in the beverage shop next time.

I think it's Pete's Wicked Honey Blonde . . . that's the only "flavored" beer I have had that I was able to finish.

Flavoring beer is like putting cream, milk, sugar, in coffee - or like putting water in your Whisky or Whiskey . . . .  yuck

I tried a peach, pear, and apple flavored beer when I was visiting Germany.

The alcohol content I want to say was 10%...at least! Only time in my history of pillaging that I was carried home between the arms of two my mates.


Pissed!   

I also enjoy a nice chocolate or oatmeal stout! Also have tried Pumpkin Ale.

Lehigh University, out in Bethlehem, PA. Natty Light is the beer of choice here, Ice if you're a little short on cash. Sometimes we get Yuengling also, since it's actually cheaper than Bud Light and MGD, probably because it's a local PA beer.

Yep, our very own Cory Cooperman. He's done great this year, currently ranked #3 in the nation at 141, behind guys from OK St. and Iowa St. Our team's only ranked #15 in the nation this year, mainly because of a bunch of injuries. Most of those are healed now, and Lehigh hosts the EIWA tournament next weekend, where most of the starters should qualify for NCAA's out in Oklahoma City.

But I did have the Becks Lemon and also Jever Lime. Refreshing. Who ever said you had to have loads of alcohol in drinks to enjoy them (says the one who can't drink alcohol for a while now..  Sad)

Pretty sure it was ale, not cider. Our really nice German bartender got off work and took us to this Mom and Pap pub/diner. Started playing drinking games with those powerful beers...not wise.

There's a total of two flavored beers I have ever liked:



I've tried Young's Double Chocolate Stout, it wasn't too bad, not something I'd drink all too often. Sam Adams has a Chocolate Bock, I saw it one time at the liquor store I go to for really good beers and haven't seen it since.

I've tried the various fruit lambics and didn't really like them too much. One time I bought some Pete's Wicked Strawberry Blonde Ale, drank one bottle and sold a guy at work the rest (he was underage and took whatever beer he could get his hands on).

The first few times I had it, I really didn't like it all that much. Then I went up to Boston and did the Sam Adams Brewery tour, and that was one of the beers they had for samples. I must have gotten some old bottles or heat skunked ones previously. Since then, it's been a good one to get every now and again.

The first beer in my earlier post, Sweetwater Blue is an ale with a hint of blueberry. It was the first of their beers I tried some 8 or so years ago, and still pick up a six of it every once in awhile (That is if I don't pick up some of their 420 Pale Ale).

I just realized something, a thread about beer and LHMARK is nowhere to be found. Must be out doing some "research"......

I've discovered it while gathering in a small portugese sandwich shop with all members of our ska music band before reharsing.

Excellent call. Being in Portugal for some time I learned to enjoy Sagres as well as Super Bock. You can get a super-sized beer with your meal at the McDonalds in Lisboa.

The idea of flavored beer..and those flavored malt drinks..well  vomit 
But having said that, I can recall tossing down some very refreshing
Berlinerweiss with raspberry jam years ago during a very hot summer..
so maybe some extensive research is in order..  Smile

I personally never tried those flavoured beers. Maybe I'd try them if there was a bar here in Costa Rica that actually sells them though for the moment, I'm very critical of them. However, I do wonder why the main Costa Rican brewery never went for such concept with their own brands.

I personally, if I was back home in Hamburg, would go to the "Oblomow" Restaurant near the Isebek-Kanal with a few people, sit at the bar and order a glass of Holsten Pilsener.

Now that's what I'm talking about. Big grin

In Britain it is still common to have Shandy - usually a mix of "Bitter" or Lager and Lemonade. It used to be quite common to see Ginger Beer Shandy, but pubs don't seem to stock Ginger Beer anymore. A Shandy is often more refreshing on a hot day than a pint of straight Beer.

I've tried several of the Belgian fruit beers but have never really acquired the taste, although Leffe Radieuse (8.4%), whilst not a true fruit beer, does have a pleasant fruity "kick".

There is a Belgian beer that I believe is called Kieren.
It is a cherry beer that comes in a smaller shaped bottle.
It has a very good flavor to it.

But I think the German breweries are the best with flavored beers.

There is a brand from Berlin that has a Rasperry one as well as a beer
mixed with cola that I think are great.

But most of the time I'll just have a "Radler Bier" which is half lemon soda
and half draft beer in a 500ml glass. mmm...Lecker!!  yummy
