Molson's Export Ale (It's a classic)

This thread went beer nerd fast.

My five:
Beau's Kissmeyer Nordic Pale Ale
Collective Arts Ransack the Universe
Rorscach Truth Serum
Dieu du Ciel Moralite
Beau's Original Gruit

Mostly Canadian IPAs - tried a lot of US beer, we still rock when it comes to beer, even when it's an American Pale Ale.

I realize I don't even have top5 since I don't drink regularly, actually almost not at all anymore since I moved to Ontario where beer is overpriced. I remember for the same price of buying 6 beer in a LCBO or Beerstore I can get 24 beers in Europe.

Guinness on tap, can have it any time any where, just doesn't taste the same from the bottle.

Another excellent stout which has not been mentioned here is from Quebec, and available in most local beer stores in Ontario

Summer is for light beers for me, so I don't mind korona, sleeman cream ale, wheat beers.

I generally dislike IPA (too bitter for me), or strong beers hitting 7% or more.

Augustiner-brau -- I was in Munich last year and was told of this beer. Best beer I've ever tasted that, instead of buying water, I'd actually buy that beer in the supermarket and drank it while walking around sightseeing.

I feel inadequate, everyone has such sophisticated tastes. I'm a total neanderthal. As long as it's cold and looks like piss, I'll drink it.
