Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As you say, it's all a question of what you like in a beer.  German beer is boring, and Belgian beer is just awful.

Now admittedly that's from a sample of German and Belgian stuff that makes it stateside (or England when I was there), and I'm sure that's not a great sample.

And admittedly I'm prejudiced against the Germans, because they're the ones who ruined American beer before Carter allowed the microbreweries to spring up.  Budweiser is Germany's fault.  And so are all those hideous brews they have in Milwaukee.

But I like dark, smooth beer, so I tend to gravitate towards the English and Irish stuff.  And some of the American stuff, but the American brews tend to have too much alcohol for me (7-9% vs 4-5% for English/Irish).  I'd rather have low-ABV stuff that I can drink while watching a game for a few hours without being hammered by the end.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
