Out of 16 I have had the top one is American and only 3 were scored above 3.0. They are similar to the rest of German beer, ordinary.

If someone wants to say "all german beer is ordinary" then they just donít know german beer. I donít think there is anything wrong in me saying so.

You might have provided some substance, like explaining how I have it all wrong about Kolsch, or how German beer is not actually ordinary at all.

But rather than talk about beer, you just make a personal attack. That is what is wrong with it.

Cheers.

I actually think I have a great understanding of German beers, they like to stick to their tradition which I am fine with. However even the freshest of pils, weizen, alts, Kolsch, weisse, schwarzbier, or bock that I drank while living there for almost 8 yrs made me excited about their styles of beers. I will have to give them some credit for rauchbier not being ordinary, but I found it only enjoyable in small doses.

Thanks for sticking up for me, last time I knew we were allowed to have personal opinions based on our experience and voice them freely here. Maybe I missed something in forum posting guidelines against this, if so I apologizeÖShawn
