So Coors Light has introduced a new style, that has the "flavor" of iced tea and lemon in it. Now, setting aside the fact that it inevitably tastes disgusting, there's a problem with the name. Coors Light Iced T. Think about.

So when I was out eating and drinking with my uncle this past weekend, I tried, for the first time, 3 Monts, and I'm quite fond of it.

It's a Biere De Garde style ale. Like a Saison, but with more kick. Very malty, but the hops still shine through. A bit of an oddity, in that it's a French ale.

Bombardier ale. Very tasty and currently in Tesco for 2 quid a litre :love:

Having said that, the new adverts are probably the only thing I've seen Rik Mayall in that I haven't found brilliant. Still, it doesn't affect the beer :idiot:

International Arms Race: Maryland vs. Scotland

The International Arms Race is a new type of collaboration - a battle collaboration! The brewing team from both Flying Dog and BrewDog set the parameters for the beer and then both brewers have to see who can make the best beer within these parameters. We have decided the ingredients and launch date and the war games have now begun!...

Both beers will be dubbed 'Zero IBU IPA' and the challenge is to brew an IPA style beer using no hops! The hops will be replaced with berries, herbs and roots. With hops completely banned from the International Arms Race the results are certainly going to be interesting.

That's an impressive list of beers you have there. Unfortunately, Imgur is overloaded, so a viewing will have to wait. :shrug:

Nope, it's real. Tasteless name, but a tasty beer.

Tried Sixpoint's Apollo. It's a very unique beer. Kristalweizen, so it's a filtered wheat, no yeasty sediments. However, they're using a brettanomyces yeast in the brewing, so it gets that tarty funkiness. It's like a wheat crossed with a lambic.

The Independent put out a list of their 50 best British beers. Being a 'Murican, I've only have a few of these. Any disagreements/snubs?
