Nathaniel Davis, brewmaster, Anheuser-Busch, Inc. says, "We created a great new drink that's outside the boundaries of the taste adults would expect from a traditional beer. With B-to-the-E, we've come up with a beer that has a taste with a 'wow' factor at the finish."

The Beerman Sez, "The Beerman sees no beer here. It tastes okay for a girly-man put-an-umbrella-in-it and wear your sunglasses on top of your head and tie your sweater around your neck... type drink, but it ain't beer in any form the Beerman has ever seen. It is unholy and to be avoided at all costs."

Best served with: Okay, The Beerman is at a complete loss here so let's go with Brussels sprouts and Lima beans.

Belhaven St. Andrews

There might be a better traditional ale out there but The Beerman hasn't found it yet. If you have please send the beerman a keg or two for evaluation.

Best served with: Steak, lamb, pork, haggis (whatever that is), actually this is good enough to serve with anything except Lima beans and Brussels sprouts if you like this style.

Bell's Oberon

One of the best summer ales and also one of the first to come out each year. Their yeast has a unique taste that takes a couple sips to get used to but it's great after that.

This is the winner of TB's coveted Beer of the Month for June 2014. Best served with: Summer picnic foodt.

Bell's Winter White Ale

Bell's site says, "Taking its cues from Belgian-style white ales, Bell's Winter White Ale offers a lighter yet abundantly flavorful alternative to the traditional heavy winter warmers. Fermented with a Belgian ale yeast, this blend of barley & wheat malts yields a mixture of clove and fruity aromas, all without the use of any spices. Deliberately brewed to retain a cloudy appearance, Bell's Winter White Ale is a beer for embracing winter." The Beerman Sez: It reminds me of their Oberon but without the citrus flavor (and that's a good thing). We had it in Twiki the kegerator for our Christmas party. It gets my January 2013 Beer of the Month.

Best served with: White meat

Blanche de Chambly

A bottle-refermented white ale on lees. A smooth, partially filtered wheat beer with slight citrus and spice flavour (Canadian spelling for Canadian beers, eh?) and slight cloudiness. Great with poultry, lamb, fish, and pork. Like most Unibroue products, this beer has a long shelf life. The Beerman cracked a two-year-old 750ml bottle for Thanksgiving dinner and it was even better than when it was fresh.

Best served with: Poultry, fish and shellfish, salads and fresh cut vegetables.

Blue Moon

A spiced, unfiltered, Belgian-style wheat ale. Awesome to tap with a wedge of orange. Its only flaw is that it can be a little too dry straight from the bottle. The Beerman sez to try a "Black and Blue" by pouring half a glass of Blue Moon and then gently topping it off with Guinness. The Beerman gives the Black and Blue a 9.5 out of 10; this is one case where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

Best served with: Poultry, lamb, pork, fruit, and fish.

Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale / Harvest Moon

The Beerman really doesn't want to know how or why someone thought up putting pumpkin in ale but he is glad someone did. This year's version was even better the first year's, which was good but a little too spicy.

Best served with: Poultry, lamb, pork, fish and Thanksgiving type dinners.

Like it was brewed by angels, eh? Rating: 8.25 out of 10

Brick Amber Lager

A nice amber coloured (Canadian lingo, eh?) lager with no additives or preservatives. It is a wee bit lighter in feel and taste than the Beerman prefers but it is very refreshing. The Beerman sez this is almost as good as Yuengling and that's not bad.

Best served with: Red meat and/or pasta. Great with a big, juicy medium-rare burger.

Bud Dry

The only time the Beerman ever had this brew was on a very hot day when there was no real beer available. It was quite refreshing but so was water. The Beerman remembers that it was slightly better than the regular Bud though.

Best served with: Stale, salty popcorn the bar gives away?

What does your husband drink? Great for keeping your girlie figure while you pretend to be drinking beer.

It "tastes" like they took a bottle of water and added a couple drops of Shock Top. The Beerman Sez: Where's the beer?

Best served with: an umbrella in it, Missy.

Their slogan says, "The King of Beers." The Beerman sez, "I didn't know we had a king. I thought we were an autonomous collective...." But in all seriousness,it's drinkable but the Beerman would rather have something with more flavor.

Best served with: Generic food to go with the generic lager.

Budweiser American Ale

The Beerman wasn't expecting much from this but he was pleasantly surprised. It tastes a lot like Red Fox or a not as sweet Cask Bourbon Ale. The Cascade hops aren't overpowering but they are there. It has a reddish amber color, so-so body, and a moderate head.

Best served with: A good burger or quality pub grub.

Buffalo Bill's Pumpkin Ale

They say, "The only good thing about the end of Summer." The Beerman won't go that far but it's okay. It could use more texture but the flavor isn't bad. Last year The Beerman would have rated this a 4 or 4.5 but he found an old bottle in the back of his fridge and it was better so he has averaged it to a 5 out of 10. The Beerman Sez: buy a six of this a hide it in a dark corner for a year or so and it's better.

Best served with: Chicken with cooked squash.

The Beerman will buy this again when monkeys... Rating: 3.5 out of 10

Butt Monkey Chimp Chiller Ale

Has the color and texture of a week-old urine sample. Other than that there isn't really much this beer lacks other than malt, hops, and barley. It's drinkable but so is water. The Beerman Sez, use this stuff up after you're out of good beer and everyone is buzzed enough that they won't notice the lack of flavor.

Best served: As a chaser for a couple good beers.
