Iím Alex, I run RateTea.com, which was inspired by RateBeer. I drink tea more than beer and am more passionate about sampling and reviewing teas than beers, but I love beer too.
My favorite brewery is Great Lakes and my favorite beer is the Edmund Fitzgerald. I like a wide variety of styles of beer. I tend to prefer beers that are bitter, light-bodied, and aromatically complex. I like American hops over European hops. I like hops with floral, skunky, and herbaceous qualities. I like beers with a crisp carbonation. I dislike sweetness, sourness, and heaviness. I dislike beers with weak carbonation, especially if they are sweet and heavy, as they seem syrupy to me. I prefer alcohol to be unnoticeable in my beer. I like a wide range of types of malt, including roasted malts, and also enjoy wheat beers and beers brewed from other grains. I am a huge fan of non-alcoholic beer as well, and often drink it for lunch.
