Awesome - I mentioned to a few others privately that it would take approx 2-3 hours after my post before someone slammed ratebeer to some degree. Thanks for coming through for me.
I posted the links to show a) exactly which beers Old Faithful was talking about, as he was not sure and b) that yes, God forbid, people think they're pretty crap. Last time I checked this was an opinionated forum. Old Faithful posted his; I posted these links to provide an alternative view, especially as I have never tried these specific gems.
Belgian, you need to chill. Old Faithful has posted a lot of positive reviews on beers a good majority of people on this board do not care for. Being a smart chap, I'm sure he expects some discussion. Steelback raises a little more ire than normal because the owner has come off as not giving a shit about the quality of the beer. Lending support to someone like that, even insinuated support, will always piss people off.
One last thing, if you read some of the reviews (and don't miss some of the Steelback plants in there as well!), you will see a common theme - most find something seriously wrong with this beer across all the brands. Some of the folks more knowledgeable than me have pointed out a possible yeast problem or some sort of flaw in the brewing process (or something like that). That is the reason this company gets trashed (and yes, there are the bandwagon jumpers for sure). I think you'll find most boring inoffensive lagers get boring inoffensive ratings.
And looking back, I'm not sure where you see Gary getting slammed. I see two posts that didn't agree and were a little exasperated, that's all.
