"I'd say lager/pilsners. They've never really received any hype or high ratings, and they can be so well made and so drinkable: there is not a lot else I rather want."

OVERRATED: Spiced ale
"I think the most overrated beer style is the spiced ale (holiday seasonal). Honestly, it just comes down to personal preference for me. I can handle a well-done pumpkin ale, but the closer the calendar gets to December 25th, the beer nearest the register is furthest from my taste. I do like how those novelty beers potentially draw more drinkers to the dark side, but I'm already Xmassed out from two months of corporate marketing and usually end up drinking more IPAs until mid-January. I will give exception to one beer, however. Fat Head's Brewery puts out a nice dark Belgian called Pimp My Sleigh. It can be hard to get your hands on, but it comes in a six-pack. I'm aging a couple for Festivus 2016."
"To me, the most underrated style has to be the porter. Without it we wouldn't have the stout, and everybody goes crazy over a good stout, especially when the gravity is high and it's been aged in some kind of liquor barrel. I'm always on the hunt for a new imperial porter to taste, yet they don't show up all that often at my retailer. I'm going to plug a brew from my hometown, Dayton, OH, and recommend trying to trade for Warped Wing Brewery's Baltic Argonaut. They released the Baltic-style imperial porter in cans for the first time this year, and it's a hit."
