I think the only Japanese beer I've had is Kirin Ichiban. It was like if the main stream American beers (Bud, Miller, etc...) were actually semi-competent.

Had a Sapporo as well.
Definitely not bad in the reasonably priced lager category.

Wouldn't mind a box of the Asahi.

I know Americans laugh at Bud but I prefer it over our generic beers.

Convinced some craft beers are "just because we could".

I tried a Walhallapeño sour once (made in the state). I'm not a sour fan, but I at least was able to finish it :-/

Another brewery has a line of beers that use a strain of hops that make the beer taste to me like bad marijuana smells. (!!?!)

On the happy side, picked up four more pumpkin beers (and one pumpkin cider) today to try over the next month. That will make nine different pumpkin beers in total when I'm done with the current stash.

Back to cheap macro lagers specifically Pilsners.
$2 USD for full pint of the German beer, around $13 for the dozen Carlsburg.

It will take 3-4 sessions to polish off that dozen.

Elysian Night Owl Pumpkin Ale. Brewed with pumpkin, roasted and raw pumpkin seeds, and spiced with nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice. 6.7% ABV. Very drinkable, and my favorite (by a tiny bit) of the pumpkins so far.

New ranking:
1) Elysian Night Owl
2) Southern Tier Pumking
3) Elysian Great Pumpkin
4) Elysian Punuccino

Beers like that tend to be for meals.

Not a fan by themselves usually.

When it's sane enough to do happy hour out, it's usually at a bar/restaurant with food. Someday again.

Yeah the craft beers I posted earlier are $3.50 USD on happy hour.

Beer cocktail, is around $12 USD hazy IPA 6.8%, double shot of tequila, lime juice.

It's about a pint in size as well so it's about 5-6 standard drinks.

Wasn't a bad birthday present.

Elysian Dark O' The Moon Pumpkin Stout. Chocolatey with a touch of cinnamon - 7.5% ABV. If you want something that's like drinking a chocolate-pumpkin shake beer, this might be the top of the ones I've tried so far -- for me it's the first one I would pass on, too sweet.

Budweiser is about as sweet as I want a beer.

Krombacher is slightly sweet with more flavour than Bud.

Your tastes in craft are a bit more exotic than mine. If the beer is to fruity or sweat you've done something wrong.

I'm usually in to Hefes, Dunkels, Stouts, and Porters, but I try to go out of my way to try different things. The only fruity one I really like is Abita Strawberry Lager.

The first of four more pumpkins. Shipyard Pumpkinhead Ale. 4.5% ABV. Definitely an ale, with the spice obvious but more around the edge and not front and center. A bit watery? It was "ok".
