Beer Alert & Directory IV


#1108

Is there a consensus over Buckskin’s beer? I’ve tried it a few times and I think it’s not bad at all, I’d gladly take that over other “mainstream” Taiwanese beers.


#1109

Two varieties, right? The lager seemed very average and the hefeweizen seemed just like another (they are all similar to me). They should have went with an ale with a distinctive taste. I prefer 18 days to Buckskin. By far.


#1110

I haven’t tried the Buckskin yet, but maybe it’s time. The lager, anyway.


#1111

You’ve got to try it because of Kavalan, curiosity, etc., but really just buy one.


#1112

Buckskin is okay. Nothing special if it were a western country, but here it’s fine.


#1113

Probably not much chance, either, of going into the bar here and cracking up your buddies by ordering “Foreskin” and laughing like a fucking donkey because you think it makes you Chris fucking Rock while the bartender rolls her eyes in disgusted loathing because you’re the 10th a-hole to make that joke since she came on shift at 5.
Probably not.


#1114

Dark or light?


#1115

Terrible, was my experience.


#1116

I’ve been buying this one recently. I notice the price is cheaper than last year.


#1117

I think it’s pretty bad personally.
I wouldn’t drink it again and I’d even drink Bar beer again. Tastes like left over stuff from the whiskey distillery :smile:.


#1118

Those are big words. That stuff is terrible!


#1119

Would you go as far as saying even the dreaded Heineken is preferable?


#1120

I thought it was not bad, but I’m not a big fan of IPAs. Very good flavors, only if the bitterness could be toned down a bit. But then it wouldn’t be an IPA, I guess.


#1121

I go through phases. Last year was Belgians


#1122

As long as you don’t slip into teetotalism, it’s all good.


#1123

I do that every once in a while. otherwise, I don’t enjoy the beer as much. better when you take a break.


#1124

Looks interesting. Has anyone tried it? What’s the verdict?


#1125

I quite like it. If it was a choice between that or Heineken, I’d buy Bar.

Edit: no, that’s not quite right. If someone else had bought them, I’d drink the Bar.


#1126

Good, I like my beer cold.


#1127

4.3% extra drinkability? WTF?
