    Glenlivet if drinking whiskey. Splash of cold filtered water, no ice.

    Glenlivet is whisky  😛

    :? Don’t believe I said it wasn’t. Glenlivet is my prefered whisky. Or depending on how deep you want to go within the category of Whisky my prefered Scotch Whiskey. Or even my prefered Single Malt Scotch Whiskey. And frankly that is a matter of price point because the 15 year old Glenfiddich I had gifted to me once was IMO pretty special. I keep promising myself a bottle of the 18 year old Glenlivet but always balk at the price. Thos extra years come at a premium price on an already premium priced beverage.

    Stella Artois is a very similar style of beer to Budweiser. The Euro lagers don’t lighten the body with adjuncts usually so you get a maltier beer.

    Budweiser is a very good beer – within its Style. To quote a knowledgable beer drinker

    Top of its class for what it is and for what it is trying to be: a 1) highly consistent beer, that’s 2) brewed for mass-appeal and 3) one that’s easy to drink. Check. Check. And check.

    Bud knows what it is and is that very well. Sometimes you want Citizen Kane and sometimes you want Raiders of the Lost Ark.

    You can’t really compare Bud and Newcastle because that is like apples and oranges. But to compare Miller Lite and Bud Lite is to compare Red Delicious from Oregon to Red Delicious from Ohio. Guiness to Beamish to Murphy’s is Smith’s Farm to Jone’s Farm to Brown’s Orchard. Bud to Bud Lite to Stella Artois is probably Red Delicious to Golden Delicious to Granny Smith.

    I also have a fondness for one of the Belgian Abbey Ales, Maredsous or something like that.  Specifically, #8 Dubbel…  8% alcohol, good head, serious bite…

    And just 1 bottle will get even ME buzzed…

    Your Dubbel (is this the one? http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/222/2508) has almost twice the alcohol as your Newcastle. (http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/111/639) Hence– Dubbel.

    I have found that when the ABV starts hitting 5% it takes a lot less for anyone to get a buzz. If you like BIG BEERS (lots of Malt, Hops and Alcohol) look for something from these guys.

    I’m partial to their Arrogant Bastard Ale but it is tough to come by for me:

    I’ve hav Arrogant Bastard Ale, Pretty good stuff.

    On the Whisky/Whiskey issue it was semantics, there’s no “e” in Scotch or Canadian  😉

    I think stella has a bit more bite than American beers like bud.  I prefer Coors original to Bud, it’s a bit sweeter.  However, I’m not a one beer kind of guy.  My favorite beer, other than Guinness, is cold or Free.

    Speaking of American vs. European Beer, when I was in Belfast, There was a group of guys there (locals) that were drinking Bud in the bottle.  I thought is was hilarious, because they were paying almost double what I was paying pint’s of Guinness.

    Yeah… even if it was in a white can that just said BEER in bold black writing.

    Beat me to it.  🙂

    Whiskey-Whisky- even if I can’t spell it is still the Water of Life.  🙂

    I agree with you, dezrtfish, that Stella has more bite than Bud. I’ve only  had a couple and I remember the bite being bittering hops and alcohol hotness. But it is a pale beer without a complex malt profile fermented with lager yeast so not really down the block from Bud.

    For those who like trivia Guinness and Bud have the same original gravity.

    When I was in college I used to do surveys for cash.  You know the type of thing try this product and give your oppinion or which of these looks better.

    I took home two six-packs of beer in white cans that said “BEER A” and “BEER B” in black letters.  I had to drink it and bring back the cans to get my $75  funny stuff, I’m not sure what the beer was, it wasn’t bud or coors I think it might have been miller neither one was very good other than the fact that i got paid to dring them. 😄



  • Any beer that you get paid to drink is a worthwhile beer.  😄  ~ZP
