Says someone who must have zero understanding of german beer what so ever.


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.




Props for your response. Ryan is great, but Iím not sure why he randomly tried to call out someone he didnít realized lived in Germany for so long.

Iíll give a hats off to Ryan in sticking up for German beers in general, but also say that as commercial brewers, we are biased towards German beers in many ways, not the least of which is incredible consistency and a focus that many outside of Germany lack.

And with that said, if you donít like Kolsch, you donít like beer, and you donít like yourself.

If you have problems distinguishing Kolsch, maybe itís time that you try the best Kolsch in the world: Cigar City Pilot Series Pineapple Kolsch.

I found them completely different. 2.9 to 4.0 in ratings.

Unless theyíve lost their sense of smell, yes. Itís a pretty effing obvious difference.

Thereís not a *huge* difference though. Different KŲlschbier(s), yes, but still, the difference between these two is nothing like the difference between, say, German and Czech Pils...on average. (As if this adds anything to the discussion!)

Aye. Donít see what you said as a personal attack, just a pointed comment.
