Favorite Malt Beverages?

Ever since a kind chowhounder pointed me towards Capone's I have been sipping and sampling my way through some of the many malt beverage offerings for light summer refreshment. My friend John left his large bottle of Smirnoff Ice Triple Black at my house and I am enjoying it now. (sorry John!) It is very refreshing and light but I do understand the need to drink up the smirnoff beverages while they are ice cold. My friend John bought a couple of cans of Chelada, which is bud light and clamato, and gave me one, which is proof that he secretly hates me! Does anyone actually like this vile stuff? No offense if you do, I know that you can't argue with taste! The Sparks was yummy, still haven't been able to track down Joose in Pa, just curious if there is some malt beverage that is even better than smirnoff ice?

  1. I'm so sorry. I honestly did not know what Clamato was. I thought it might be an energy drink thing since it was in with the energy drinks. It it truely vile. I wouldn't give this now having tasted it to my worst enemy. I appologize.

    1. re: givemetomatos

      I would suggest a good hard lemonade, like Mike's. It might look girly but it is very refreshing. Or try the apple bite smirnoff if you are in the mood for something with more of a tang.

    2. Beer is a delicious malt beverage. I recommend AleSmith Summer YuleSmith for a refreshing summer sipper.
