Now I do not drink very much. My brother tried to turn me onto light beers but the strong taste of alcoholic presence turned me off to the point where I cannot even become acquired to it. However, he gave me one of these Apple Ales and ever since then I've actually fucking love these beverages.
I don't give a rat's ass if this officially makes me a faggot.
I like Redd's Apple Ale. I tried Strongbow too, but I just do not like it as much as Redd's.
angry orchard hop'n mad isn't bad if you want to avoid the taste of alcohol
or twisted teas, which tastes basically like sweet tea. I could probably drink a 6er before I realized I was drinking alcohol.
It will make you look homo though
Agree. I've heard that hard cider used to be the more popular choice around George Washington's time until the apple crop got some disease. The lack and price of cider increased the beer trade. So that's why it became more popular. With increasing times the apple crop has since been rectified and cider has become popular again. One that I like is a local craft cider called "Loon Juice" which is a Minnesota brew. Good stuff.
Bartender here (just working at a Dive Bar now, not trying to sound fancy or anything. My clientele are old people and druggies on god-knowswhat)
Anon if that's what you want to drink in the comfort of your house then fine, hell the drink I hate serving the most (Jack & Coke which to me is an awful combination) sells madly and I'm not going to sneer at my guests who love it and tip me for it. Drink what makes you happy, you're not a faggot in fact I like that you hate Light Beer because Light Beer is a meme drink that fools people into thinking they're cutting some calories when they end up just drinking more pisswater. If you actually want try decent Beer I recommend a nice Wheat Beer, Bock Beer, or a Pale lager.
Anyway next time you're at a bar I'd strongly recommend you buy a cocktail, why is this? Because buying bottled beer generally is a rip off at a bar (pay something 5x as much as it'd cost at the Liquor Store) and if you're spending the money to drink there you might as well get something on Tap or have the Bartender make you a cocktail. If you don't like the taste of beer you want Cocktails, cocktails are delicious. Try some of the following the next time you're out (or make them at home).
Washington Apple - Canadian Whiskey (Crown Royal), Apple Pucker, Cranberry Juice. Tastes like Apple Juice.
Moscow Mule/Dark & Stormy - Vodka/Dark Rum, Ginger Beer, Lime Juice. Fucking delicious (don't use Ginger Ale, Ginger Ale is cheap shit).
White Russian - Vodka, Kahlua, Cream. Like a grownup Milkshake
Bloody Mary - Vodka, Tomato Juice, Worcestershire Sauce, and a shitload of other things. Timeless, I start my days off with one.
Daiquiri - White Rum, Lime Juice, Simple Syrup. Tastes like limeade.
All these drinks mute out the taste of alcohol and are excellent. A quality cocktail is a delight in of itself. Cheap mass market shit like Redd's is for convenience sake only.
Got any questions or want to argue with ask away, I love talking about alcohol.
Like this guy I'd heavily recommend Woodchuck. It's probably what you're looking for. Decent variety of flavors, extremely easy to drink. Basically like alcoholic apple soda.
Maybe it's just because they make it where I live and I've been drinking it since I was like 13.
I like canned Strongbow a good deal, Redd's and Woodchuck are too sweet. Another good one is Ace Apple Cider, tastes like slightly watered-down apple juice, which happens to be perfect for me.
If you can get it in America, Kopparberg is fucking top notch cider, sweet and clean flavour without the acrid aftertaste sweet ciders normally give out.
Knows exactly what (s)he's talking about, if you don't like the taste of alcohol, mask it with a cocktail - I personally like a Negroni, but Gin isn't for everyone and Campari certainly isn't for everyone. Otherwise I'd go for any kind of Daiquiri or even a sweet Martini.
Personally I prefer neat Scotch, not quite bottom shelf but near enough (Bells,Teachers, Whyte and Mackay especially) but I have enough tastebuds remaining to know shit when I taste it, and cheap beer is the worst arse gravy a person could ingest. Cocktails, dude - unless it's a cock, what you put down your throat doesn't gage your sexuality.
Bruh, dude, like, you are sooooo off pace there, hombre.
The reason why you drink beer is because it's fuckin' manly as shit, brah. It tastes bad but you drink it anyways because of that street cred, you dig?
Don't be a pussy, bruh. Drink the nastiest shit you can get. Fuckin' man up, bruh.
no bad apple is pretty good too, there cinnamon apple is awesome.
