    Guinness would be my answer. Guinness gets bashed on this site all the time for being weak, watery, and so forth, and while that is certainly true when compared to imperial stouts, you have to take it for what it is. It's an Irish dry stout--it's meant to be very light and sessionable. It's extremely smooth and creamy, and even though it doesn't have much flavor, it's still very enjoyable and you can drink a ton of them in a row without getting super wasted. Haha.

    On a hot day, on a beach, by the pool etc, I like a Corona or Sol. Just enough bite and the almost complete absence of any aftertaste is weirdly refreshing.

    I'm with you on this one. It's also hugely popular at British and Irish sporting events for this very reason

    I drink miller lite for every Bears game or Bud at a Cubs game. Cheap, and if power drinking is in order, it works. I guess I'm one of those few on this site who drinks to get drunk on occasion.

    I find this a very interesting thread - like others who posted I'm not ashamed to admit I like anything.
    I have noticed recently that in this area - north Jersey - NYC - the hipsters seem to invading the craft beer crowd and to them if you're not drinking some incredibly hard to find brew that most people never heard of and listening to some garage band that only plays the third tuesday of every month in a undisclosed location you're just not cool. With that in mind 2 brews popped into my head immediately.
    Founders Rubaeus - The comment usually is " remember when we thought Rubaeus was a craft beer " Um - it still is.
    Heady Topper - the comment usually is " remember when Heady was the shit " - Um, it still is. LOL
    I'm old and still like them both.

    Genesee Cream Ale & Honey Brown Lager. Was happy to be able to find these in NC. Helps when missing home.

    In the summer, sitting on a terrasse with a couple friends, theres nothing wrong with enjoying a nice pint of budweiser or stella. Thirst quenching lagers are great, They manage to provide something that a big Barley wine, or strong stout cant. Refreshment. I mean dont get me wrong I enjoy my big beers, but you would have a hard time dowing palatebusters and there just not as thirst quenching.

    Iron (pronounced Arn) City and Yuengling Black and Tan, heavily consumed back in college and Steelers tailgating days. Not nationally ridiculed beers but I have never met someone from outside of Pittsburgh who actually enjoys drinking Iron City. Even when IC is served at "Steelers bars" outside of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, it seems the only people who enjoy it are Pittsburgh ex-pats while the locals who are Steelers fans drink one out of an obligation that I am unsure about (yinz know there is not an initiation process to become an honorary Pittsburgher that requires one to eat a Primanti's Bros. sandwich while downing an Iron City). Both beers, outside of this sentimental value, are terrible but I still enjoy them and look forward to having one (and only one, to be honest) back in the 'burgh whenever I go.

    I really enjoy having a few Busch Lights while mowing the lawn (and at other times too even lol). I don't really have a good 'back story' or anything like that for my enjoyment of this beer. Realistically, I just enjoy carbonated beverages (and I'm not much of a soda person).

    In my early morning strolls about London, the gutters were full of (empty) tall boys of Stella and Fosters. Don't know about low class, but someone was consuming mass quantities.

    Back in my undergrad days I lived on Iron city and Schmidt's. Now it only takes 1/2 of an IC can to cause a massive headache.

    Pilsners/german lagers. generally not a very highly rated style but I really enjoy them, especially with food.

    Yuengling Black and Tan, Blue Moon, Amber Bock, and shiner Bock. They were a cut above when I didn't know craft, in fact I remember when asking for these made me seem like a snob. I'm operating on the assumption we are looking for beers that wouldn't make the craft beer cut and would therefore evoke shame from BAs in good standing.

    Sure, but I'm not sure that is the intent of the thread; many of those are the best beers around, so say it loud and say it proud. :slight_smile:

    Personally, I'd be more ashamed to admit I enjoy the latest barrel aged poly razzmatazz beer :wink:.

    Why would I be ashamed to like a certain drink?

    Son, there is nothing more manly than drinking a pink-colored fruit beer in a bar.
