    Per the comments listed, I altered this recipe. I only used 1/2 cup of flour and added about 3/4 cup milk and 1/2 tsp of nutmeg. It was the perfect consistancy. I also deleted the celery and carrots from the recipe and did not place the onions in the blender. It added a little texture to the soup. I will definately make this again.  -  30 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    By far the BEST beer cheese soup I have tasted, and I've tried many! This was very similar to a local Irish Pub's beer cheese soup. I do not like those beer cheese soups that use velveeta or american cheese. I did add a hint of nutmeg to this, though.  -  09 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I am giving this recipe four stars, but not as a soup. It was much too thick and rich for a soup, but it made a great cheese fondue. Tastes like the cheese fondue from The Melting Pot. Next time I make it, I will cut up cubes of bread, apples, etc. and just dip them in!  -  10 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
