    I'll get down with The Champagne of Beers on occasion. I used to love Colt when I was in my early 20's, but when I tried to get all nostalgic with one recently, it tasted like it was aged in barrels of duck butter.

    I quit drinking BMC shortly after I started drinking craft beer. I won't touch BMC but if I had to choose I would go with Bud.

    I had a Michelob Porter a few years ago that was pretty good. The downside was that it came in a sampler 12 pack with 9 beers that really sucked.

    I normally (meaning never) drink Budweiser, tonight I did because my buddy gave me one for the cap (which says OHIO) to add to my collection. I can't believe how f-ing tasteless it is... That people spend money for that crap and call it good beer. Anyway after making this post too long, my choice is Molson Canadian.

    Spaten Oktoberfest. Blue Moon Pumpkin is pretty decent, too. On tap, it's hard to beat with pumpkins.

    They all taste the same to me, but the term has always meant mass produced, adjunct, light lagers - which they all are.

    I dont think its fair to include the Basses and Guinesses of the world. Just because they are big doesnt put them in the same league as the Beer that America Invented (tm).

    Of the low hopped, light, spritzy, adjunct laden beers, I gotta go with PBR, or Michelob. Stella and Heineken (in cans or no draft) get an Honorable Mention.

    I went to my aunts house for thanksgiving and all she had was Coors. Drank a couple in a frosty mug and they were actually pretty tasty.

    Some of the Widmer stuff is pretty good (SXNW was amazingly delicious) but other than that, nothing really. I haven't had a chance to try BCBS though.

    Worthington White Shield from Coors.
    An IPA said to date back to 1829 or something , Coors has invested in the Museum Brewery and it makes some good stuff.Including Bass No1 Barley Wine but I haven't actually found any of that yet.

    Come on guys we can't say big company's are all bad. That's like saying apple computers etc are shitty because some of ther policies are questionable or out right wrong. I like rolling rock at 7 $ a sick pack and blue moon and coors yellow bellies

    Sure we can. I find Inbev's business practices to be questionable, their marketing tactics to be reprehensible in many cases, and most of their products to be quite inferior. Therefore, I consider them to be a "bad" company and do not buy any of their products. I also don't buy MillerCoors products.

    If we're talking an AAL, I would go with Grainbelt. Pretty tasty after a day working in the yard. :)

    For the AAL it would be High Life or Coors.

    For a brand owned by one of BMC it would be Leffe Brune.

    Hoegaarden and Leffe aren't bad. Coors heavy works well for drinking games.

    Genesee Cream Ale. Still tastes like it did in prehistoric [pre-BeerAdvocate] times.

    We did a blind taste test last summer between Bud, Miller High Life, PBR, and Old Milwaukee.
    Old Milwaukee won hands down and remained the favorite after all were finished.

    Coors light when I'm broke or at a BBQ and have to drive home, and my guilty pleasure Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin (I stock piled some for over the winter)

    Boulevard beers are $7.25 a sixer here. Much better than Rolling Rock.

    several times a Summer, I'll grab a Budweiser tall boy to drink right after I mow the lawn. A most enjoyable experience.

    PBR is a very solid beer in my book and would enjoy one at anytime. Also, Leinnes Berryweiss is another that I enjoy.

    Pairs perfectly with a hot summer day at the pool or camping.

    Like in the 60's? I drank plenty of it then and it was considered crap, even by us.
