    $16.99 too expensive for an excellent 6-pk? We may have to reconsider your beer snob credentials. haha. Oracle is very good and worth the price.

    ^^^ It's enjoyable at the time, but not a memorable beer. YMMV.

    If it's not memorable, how can you be sure it was enjoyable?

    Today I had the first Sip Of Sunshine I've had in months. I still enjoy it once in a while. Also just had a Frost "Lush". That stuff is still good too.

    It was enjoyable but wouldn't buy more. Better things to drink.

    I found out about 10 minutes ago when a badge popped open on Untappd. Drinking a Stone Scorpion Bowl IPA now. Decent, but not a must try.

    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    The jokes really do write themselves.

    However, your prime market, men with beer guts, aren't well served by this.
    Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world.

    Having some Marshal Zhukov's Imperial Stout from Cigar City. Last year on the way to ProgDay, I stopped at a craft beer store in Winston-Salem, NC and bought some bottles. I had one when I got home and was not all that impressed despite positive things I'd heard about it. Nearly a year in the cellar has done good things and I'm enjoying this much more. It's similar to Bell's Expedition Stout now.

    I have a very lame question for the esteemed folks in this thread. Is there such a thing as a really good light beer, and if so, what might it/they be?

    Love the Rush name, but I, too, expect a beer brewed with peppers to have some bite.

    If you want one with a little bite, but not so much it's not a beer anymore, try one of these, if available where you are:

    Cerveza Chilebeso®

    A lager with jalapenos. Recommended. I had one a couple weeks ago at their brewpub. I have seen it in 22 oz. bottles.
    Can this be the swan song? The final elbow?

    I would say no... if by light you mean calories/carbs

    Depends on what you mean by “light”. If you are talking calories I don’t know any, with the possible exception of Guinness which is both low in calories and alcohol content.

    If you are just talking low alcohol there are quite a few good session IPA’s out there (Founders All Day IPA being a particular favorite of mine), and several of the micros have come out with lagers that are low alcohol, but have much more taste than your typical Bud or Miller (Bell’s Lager Of The Lakes, Founders Solid Gold are two good examples).

    The Germans can make lager with very little alcohol (0,5%) that is quite acceptable in taste:

    This one is the most famous

    This one has been praised by a friend, but I haven tried it

    I don't think you can get it out your way, Lou; Nightshift's Whirlpool (a pale ale) is only 4.2% with a delicious citrous/pineapple hops flavor. Very similar to Heady Topper but with half the alcohol.
