    This is my answer as well. Can't really think of anything else, maybe Sam Adams Summer. I still like Sam Summer on warm days. Just hits the spot.

    High Life 18pk bottles still may be the best cheap beer deal. Cooler full of those in the summer. Wiffleball,and cooking on the grill. My buddies and I 4 summers ago would go through 2 18pks a day. haha

    I'll always dig PBR and I'll have a Miller Lite if that's all there is and won't complain a bit. Are they my favorites? Yeah, about 10-15 years ago and I haven't lost that taste. I've just discovered that there are better tasting options out there for me.

    Most of my fridge is craft from GA and mostly not (gotta slow down on the trading). But there's also some Miller Lite in there. Maybe even some Corona (wife loves that stuff).

    And if it's free and someone is giving it to me, it's all good. Well except for Budweiser. I never liked that stuff.

    I drink natty light and coors original here and there. There just isn't a good session beer at a good price I can find near my house so when I'm lazy and hanging out with non beer snobs I drink em. No big deal.

    That said, I wish Oscar Blues pinner was just a little bit cheaper because that is my favorite session beer at the moment (fresh anyway).

    But only in Escanaba, MI. That city and beer are two mediocre things that pair wonderfully together.

    Sapporo and Medalla Light are probably my two big ones. Not beers I drink for flavor, but great when they're ice cold, and it's a summer day (Medalla is sold primarily in Puerto Rico).

    Michelob (classic)
    Yuengling Traditional, Chesterfield Ale, and Porter
    Stegmaier Porter
    Guinness Stout (mainly 'Extra' and 'Foreign Extra' both of which, as far as I'm concerned, absolutely define what stout is)

    All of these get a fair amount of snob-hate, but all are vey well made beers at a very good price.
    Michelob particularly is unjustifiably dissed frequenty. I actually wish that it were more available on draft (if it even is packed in kegs at all anymore...I do know that production of Michelob Classic has been drastically cut back in recent years)

    I homebrewed an 'ultra-classic' Michelob; a reconstruction of the original Michelob that was brewed in 1896.

    PM me if you would like more details.

    Im drinking some Harpoon IPA tonight and not being a huge hophead or IPA fan this really hits the spot.

    The way people have complained about it lately, I kind of have to say Bourbon County. Geez, folks, get a grip!

    Lots of folks look down on Dead Guy--love one at the right moment.

    Cold light yellow fizzy Mexican beer at the beach with a lime--love it.

    I'm never ashamed regardless.

    Holy figgy pudding! Next time you get all steamy, you can tag or quote me.
    I think you've misinterpreted me completely. I'm not ashamed to like any beer. The thought behind my post, was that if I was going to be ashamed for liking a beer, it wouldn't be PBR... the shame would be for the beers that people wait in a four hour line for, or persistently call different stores for, or need to ask the clerk for because it's kept in the back room. There's a richer vein of shame in driving around to every store in town buying beers at a 1 per customer limit than putting a sixer of Narragansett in your shopping cart. It's weird to me that that's potentially a minority point of view. On a similar wavelength, but better expressed:

    I've been really itching to try this beer for the longest time, but it's easier finding their non-alcoholic brew. I finally grabbed a single the other day.

    Bud Light Mixxtail Long Island. I bought one of these just for an American Malt Liquor tick because it was cheap and small (11.5 oz) and I didn't feel like buying a 40 and pouring most of it down the drain. Surprisingly, it wasn't too bad. I'd drink it again if it was free. (3.01/rDev +5.2%)

    I'd also add these:
    Foster's (2.71/rDev +4.6%)
    High Life (3.54/rDev +26%)
    Boston Lager (4.18/rDev +10%)
    Coors Banquet (2.76/rDev +2.6%
    Tsingtao (3.46/rDev +24%)

    And just for the hell of it:
    DFH Noble Rot (4.42/rDev +12.2%)

    Try?!! What kind of teenhood did you have? :slight_smile: My prediction, unfortunately, is that it will be skunked if you bought a single.

    What needs to be done, for whatever it's worth, is for someone to do a blind taste-off with a handful of the top 'Euro-lagers' like St. Pauli, Beck's, Stella, maybe a few more. IMO, that's where it would really stand out. The downside to doing such a thing is : no singles! :grinning:
