It looks like Blue Moon.

Is that a Belgian white type ale?

Stone & Wood don't taste like Blue Moon.... this is unfiltered and unpasteurized. The beer in the states it tastes most like is Northern Lights Solar Wind.

May I introduce you to Golden Glory, by Badger Ales (the brewery who brought you TangleFoot, Fursty Ferret, and my personal favourite, Blandford Fly)?

http://www.hall-woodhouse.co.uk/beers/badgerales/goldenglory.asp

This is a light, summery ale with a distinctive addition of peach blossom. It's yarmy. [] Very good for people who are newish to the world of beer drinking. And no, American lager doesn't count. [] []

Actually, I had a bottle of Golden Glory when I was relatively new to beer (excluding the mass-produced stuff) and I thought it was bloody awful. Peach juice mixed with beer didn't appeal to me at all. I'm not sure what I'd make of it now...

Blandford Fly is one of my favourite Badgers too, along with Golden Champion. Their Pickled Patridge and Original Ale are reasonable enough, but I don't think much of Poacher's Choice. There's another one called Hopping Hare which I had a bottle of a long time ago and thought was great, but I haven't been able to get hold of it since to see if I agree with myself.

It's not got peach juice in it, it's made with peach blossom. But I can see that to a BASS purist like yourself, it wouldn't be entirely the thing.

Blandford Fly is mainly a favourite of mine because I lived in Blandford Forum, and ran in screaming fear from the deadly bite of the eponymous insect on many occasions. One of my mum's compatriots died from it actually, so I think the beer is well named, as it has a hell of a kick.

I can't be called a Bass purist any more, I'm afraid. I haven't had a single pint of it for months, and the last one was a cold, bland, watery pint in the Eg in Belfast. I started rating the beers I've been drinking a few months ago, and have done about three hundred so far. The Bass got 1/10, beating only Coors Light and Corona (with 0/10 each). I'll have to give Golden Glory another go just to see where it comes in the ranking. I might actually like it these days.

Er...yeah, pretty much.

I don't know about Sam Adams Boston Lager, but American lager isn't universally terrible. For example, this
 -
(Victory Brewing Prima Pils) stuff is great. I gave it 6/10.

It's a great way to get the 'merkins all riled up though. []

I shall be celebrating Bastille Day with a couple of bottles of this:

Yes, I do like novelty beers, why do you ask? [] The first bottle I tried was at my friend's party, where I had conicidentally brought the banana bread I had baked earlier in the day. IT TASTES EXACTLY THE SAME. [] Tasty.

Gloin, Victory makes some darn good brews!
And this fruit-beer carp just isn't, be it banana, peach or lime. I like my beer to tast like beer, be it a fine Lager, of which two fine examples are pictured above, or a nice hoppy fresh IPA, or a seriously malty Scotch ale. Fruit-beer... yeeeesh. []

I've told countless people that same exact thing time and time again, Snowdingo! Fruit does not belong in beer - be it limes in Corona, or fruit infused into the beer. I can handle that pecan beer from Mississippi because it's really good. It must be because nuts are pretty much just like grains and hops, so it fits. Fruits are nothing like grains and nuts, and therefore they clash with the beer.

Fruits are good in wine, though, because wine is made from fruit. I love Sangria.

No fruit in beer! []

Oh by the way, good to see you again, Athene. []

We're still missing the Swedish Meatball. []

I managed to get hold of a few Nils Oscar bottles last year. The beer was called God Lager ("Good Lager"?). It was nice, but I'd love to nab some of their stouts.

The stout was what I had. Found it in a bottleshop in Brisbane of all places, so I don't know if the shipping enviroment was the best, but it had a 'use by' date several months into the future, & it tasted great!

That's an awesome list, Neytari.

You can't go wrong with Anchor Steam.

Stone is my favourite brewery ever, though most of the things listed there are quite strong.

I'd give an arm and a leg to taste Bear Republic Racer 5. Not my arm or my leg, but almost anyone else's.
