Wikihow.com has an article that I found interesting, it is reposted below.
Does it work ? I will give it a try next time I crack open a less-than-tasty brew:

Beer should taste great on its own merits but in a world that isn’t ideal, not all beers are equal. Read more »
Today we have Buffalo Bill’s Brewery Pumpkin Ale (from California, no relation to the sports team), Blue Moon seasonal Harvest Pumpkin Ale and Samuel Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale.
Yes, they are all different heights as shown in the photo.
The Buffalo Bill’s was suggested to my by a random lady walking past at Wegmans as I was pondering my samples for this week. She said that all three of these were good, but that she preferred the Buffalo Bill’s Pumpkin Ale. She indicated that it had a certain richness and flavor, without being too strong or artificial tasting. I have had a blueberry beer or two that were exactly that, VERY artificial and overpowering in flavor. I suppose it probably depends if you are in the mood for something with a very strong fruity flavor. Last time I sampled the blueberry beers, I didn’t care much for the very strong ones. Read more »
This week I am trying out two different Stouts. Samuel Adams Cream Stout and Brooklyn Brewery Black Chocolate Stout.
One of the first things I noticed between the two, is how strong the Black Chocolate Stout is. 10% Alcohol by Volume. It has a decent punch to it for sure. Comparatively, the Samuel Adams Cream Stout label also indicates that it is “brewed with extra portions of roasted chocolate and caramel malts, roasted barley and hand-selected English hops.” The Black Chocolate is definitely the stronger tasting of the two, I find the Samuel Adams to be slightly more hoppy, and the Brooklyn slightly more malty.

Even though it’s the oldest fermented drink in the world, beer isn’t beloved by everyone and there is a fair sized group of people who just don’t like the taste of beer. Yet when everyone else around you continues to extol the virtues of every bottle of beer they’ve consumed, you might begin to wonder just what it is you’re missing out on. Read more »
This will sound a little odd, but I actually taste bacon or ham flavor when drinking ‘Ground Break’ by Ithaca Beer Company. It is subtle but very identifiable. Now that I am thinking about it, I think this one may be spoiled too, my stomach feels a bit odd at the moment. As they are stored at Wegmans, these aren’t refrigerated and aren’t covered (the full bottle is exposed to light, which is supposedly bad), and I’m not sure how long they might have been on the shelf. I will have to try it again in the future to get a better sample. Read more »
