    Strictly speaking this is a beer thread, but on the topic of cider I find Magners a little too sweet for my taste. Bulmers is good enough, but I usually get Green Goblin fom Sainsburys. I prefer my cider dry rather than sweet.

    As for me, Heinecken is not tasty. But tastes are different as people.

    This is a difficult one as I don't want to offend anybody...

    In Belgium we don't consider Heineken as a serious beer. But is is clear that a lot people like it..

    You should also make a difference between lager beer and strong beer.

    For me in lager beer I prefer Stella Artois and if I have to choose a strong beer I would say Triple Karmeliet.

    Oh yes, I also wanted to say that if it comes to good marketing that Heineken is probably the winner but not in making beer

    Heineken is one of the worst things to come out of Holland in my opinion, sorry to say. Of course its all subjective but I think Amstel is a far superior dutch beer. For me now though in the UK bitters and Ales rule, they are a bit more tasty I think. I live in Devon and Jail Ale I think is my favourite. Londons pride is also really nice.

    I live in Canada, so all the beer here is pretty much piss water. So the only Beers i buy are import, best of those are either Grolsch or Holsten, and Guiness is pretty good to. Also over here the cans are so small, nearly every import you see is bigger than a tall boy here. You Euros got the right idea
    Also tried Mead a couple months ago, very good, its like a sweet beer, but with alot a
    Zip, and it was made in canada buy a family owned brewrey.
    Also why no poll, like to see where everyone else is on this one lol.

    Not a particular fan of American beers (where I'm from), w/the exception of perhaps Sam Adams. In my opinion, the best beers come from both Belgium and the Czech Republic, including Brouwerij De halve Maan Brugse Zot Blond and Reality Czech. To close, as quoted by Martin Luther "Beer is made by men, wine by God"

    I love craft beer. There are lots of interesting breweries here in Europe, but I must admit Americans are the really good ones nowadays.

    The following are European breweries you should look for if you're interested in trying different types of craft beer:

    - Haandbryggeriet (Norway)
    - Mikkeller (Denmark)
    - To Øl (Denmark)
    - Brewdog (Scotland)
    - Buxton (England)
    - Brouwerij de Molen (Holland)
    - De Struise Brouwers (Flandes)
    - Weissbierbrauerei G. Schneider & Sohn (Germany)
    - Naparbier (Nafarroa, Euskal Herria)
    - Guineu Ca L'Arenys (Catalonia)
    - Birrificio del Ducato (Italy)

    ...and so on.

    Just the beggining, craft beer is a HUGE world.

    Favorite Beer type: Pils (sometimes Weizen)

    Favorite Breweries:
    for home - OeTTINGER (Pils) all the way - very good and very cheap; 20x - 0.5L "kasten" = 4.80 Euro (plus pfand)

    outside - Herbsthäuser / Distelhäuser / Würzburger Hofbräu -almost all localities are supplied by these local Breweries

    Herbsthäuser is special because of their very good (but somewhat expensive) Gold Märzen;


    In Franconia (we have ~300 Breweries) the best Beers are from Klosterbrauerei Andechs (Bavarian monks brew best), Lederer Bräu and of course the Bamberger Rauchbier Schlenkerla,
    Beers from Kitzmann and Zirndorfer are just to get wasted, also the Danish FAXE is sold relatively cheap; -good times

    All in all, OeTTINGER and Herbsthäuser for me [Pils, Weizen, Märzen]

    The best lager is the original Czech Budweiser Budvar. I haven't tasted many ales but Fuller's has some pretty good ones. Anyway drink 'fröccs', it's better than beer! ;) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spritzer , http://www.treehugger.hu/node/159

    Best Beer is Budweiser (Anheuser-Busch). .................yeah, I know it's American, but the company was started by a European immigrant so technically I am able to sneak it into this thread! (LOL)

    The topic is the best European beer, not the beer that most resembles donkey piss. I vote for Grolsch as the best European beer. But I could be mistaken. Perhaps I should tour the pubs of all European countries before making a decision. I've never been to Austria, and I hear that they have some good beer there.

    Yes, I may have to stop in Bavaria on my way to Austria, so I can compare the beer in both countries. The one thing I'm really certain of is that Canadian factory beer is the only beer in the world that's worse than American factory beer. The idiots who run our major breweries think for some reason that people don't buy beer for its taste. And when a microbrewery starts selling well, because its beer actually tastes good, one of the large breweries will buy it up and turn the beer into crappy factory beer. Then when people stop buying it because it doesn't taste good anymore, they say "I guess that beer is no longer trendy now that we own it." They seem incapable of ever learning anything about beer. I think all executives at large Canadian (and American) breweries should be forced to go live in Belgium or Holland for a year, and perhaps they'd come to understand what beer is. As long as they were kept away from the Heineken - that stuff would cause them to regress to their current unevolved state.
