8. Josephsbrau Bohemian
"It's got a little bit of malt character to it -- some other TJ's beers I've tried are so flat. It has good carbonation, which is key to a style like this. When the urge for a cheap Mexican beer hits you, resist it and upgrade with this ode to the Bohemian brewing tradition." [Editor's Note: Mexican beer styles have a European background!]
7. Mission St. Brown Ale
"It's a little thin on the palate, but it has good toast, finish, and carbonation. Low alcohol on this beer, too. Mostly you'll enjoy it because you can harken back to moments of nostalgia when you first graduated from yellow beer to, say, Heineken Dark Lager or Newcastle."
