Dos Equis (XX) Amber is a long standing favorite. Throughout the years - even as Colorado seemed to have a micro-brew on every corner in the mid-90's - that one beer has remained a staple. When it is fresh and cold, it's pretty hard to beat.
There are times lately, I'll admit, where I'll return a 6-pack of Dos Equis. Not sure if those guys keep their beer cool enough but a lot of it seems to go sour these days. That has had me searching for something new.
While I used to enjoy a cool (not cold) Guiness, Grolsch, Samuel Smith Nut Brown Ale, a Murphy's Irish Stout, or a Boddington's Bitter, I am starting to lean away from beer that is skunky, bitter, or too hoppy. I just want a well balanced amber or hefeweizen. Blue Moon (with an orange) is a good summer beer for me but I don't generally care for fruity beer either. And Pilsner's? No thanks.
I just want a beer that is richly flavored when cold and balanced enough that the last warm swig from the bottle (or pint glass) isn't hard to choke down.
Right now, Yuengling is consistently the best beer I've ever had. The problem? I can't buy it in Colorado.
