Shock Top is pretty solid. similiar to Blue Moon, imo.
I tried a few beers this weekend. Tried the last of the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp, Double IPA. Solid IPA. Overall I'd say the beer camp from Sierra Nevada was a success.
I tried a Buffalo Bill's Orange Blossom. This is similiar to a blue moon or shock top in that it has a orange flavor. It's not a wheat beer though. It's classified as a cream ale. I liked it but not sure it'd be something I would drink a lot of. It was really smooth with a mild flavor.
I went from mild flavor to a big flavor. I had a Mojo IPA. A good IPA. Pretty smooth for an IPA and drinkable. Still it had the tasty IPA flavor. I tried a Dog Fish Head Festina Peche. It's a sour beer. I didn't care for it. Tasted too much like candy. Finally tried a Sierra Nevada Summerfest. Can't give a good review of it. After an IPA and a sour beer the Summerfest didn't taste like much.
My favorite wheat beer, of recent memory anyways, is Pyramid's Hefeweizen, an unfiltered wheat beer.
Blue Moon I had like a 2 year love affair with, and I still like it, but I don't desire it any more.
A couple of responses from discussions. First, wheat beer is not my first choice but this time of year I do like it. The other posters listed some pretty good wheat beer selections but my favorite would be Bell's Oberon.
Jeff, I don't remember a discussion on Tap Room Brewing Co. Though that Amber Ale sounds good. I have a soft spot for amber's because that was the first style my brother and I brewed.
I tried Summer Shandy once. It was ok, a bit too lemon-y. I enjoy the Lienenkugel brews. My favorite is probably their amber ale. Boring, I know. It's how I roll though. I liked the Sunset Wheat when I first tried it but now I think it's too sweet. Tastes like Fruity Pebbles to me.
Boulevard Pale Ale: Now that I’ve learned A-B no longer makes their American Ale, I’m looking for a new “fall back” beer. Among the contenders is Boulevard Pale Ale (brewed in Kansas City), an old favorite from my St. Louis days. It’s perfectly acceptable when I’m in a bit of a “hoppy” mood. Bonus: each six-pack comes in a box that’s the perfect size for storing comic books! I’ll often keep new purchases in Boulevard boxes until I have time to sort them properly. Remember when you were a kid and couldn’t wait to get the prize out of the box of cereal? With Boulevard, the prize is the box! (That may sound as if I don’t think mucj of their beers, but really I do.)
