America’s 40 Most Delicious Beers
40. Helles Creek
> Brewery: Kros Strain Brewing (Nebraska)
> Beer Advocate avg. rating: 3.82 out of 5
A very attractive German-style lager, bright and clear; lightly hopped, with a touch of sweetness.
39. All Day IPA
> Brewery: Founders Brewing Company (Michigan)
> Beer Advocate avg. rating: 3.87 out of 5
Clean, crisp, bright, and well-balanced between hop and malt flavors; the can describes this as a session ale, meaning that its comparatively modest kick (4.70% ABV) makes it easily drinkable in some quantity — all day, as it were.
38. Samuel Adams Rebel IPA
> Brewery: Boston Beer Company (Massachusetts)
> Beer Advocate avg. rating: 3.85 out of 5
Plenty of hops in the nose, and good hop and malt character in the mouth; medium-bodied, low-key, and very drinkable.
37. Hopslam Ale
> Brewery: Bell’s Brewery (Michigan)
> Beer Advocate avg. rating: 4.45 out of 5
Heavily hopped (six different varietals are used), but softened with a touch of honey; intensely fragrant and reasonably potent (10% ABV).
36. Full Sail Pilsner
> Brewery: Full Sail Brewing Company (Oregon)
> Beer Advocate avg. rating: 3.89 out of 5
A bright golden summertime pilsner, grassy, citrusy, crisp, and nicely bitter, with a rich aroma and a clean, dry finish.
