      The cream rises to the top in most cases, and I believe this might be one of them. If we only chose ten, we’d have a zillion write ins to track. This was easier, and gives more peoples opinions to be quickly heard.

    Hard choices…. loved the Simtra but could not have more than one due to the abv… however, I could drink Daytime early and often, less than 5%, great hops aroma and flavor, crisp carbonation and it went down smoothly, so I voted for it.
