With Coors, there's a pronounced sweetness that I think sets it slightly apart from Budweiser and MGD. I'll drink Budweiser at a Tigers game or on a hot day when there's nothing else, but that's pretty much it. I can't stand MGD. I was very pleasantly surprised by Coors Banquet, and I can usually find it around here.

Found a PBR in the fridge, will probably have it sometime later in the week.

I guess it could make sense but honestly i've tried many and yes there are subtleties but the gap between each beer is minuscule. I have the theory that if you just bought the cheapest adjunct lager, boxer lager, your experience wouldn't be incredibly varied from having an mgd or coors. BMC beers are all incredibly overpriced. I would rather just spend my money of craft.

Nothing better than a Blue Light or just plain old Blue at Comerica on a hot summer day. Most refreshing beer I can think of. MGD and most Miller products are garbage to me. Miller Lite is pretty much the most overrate beer on the planet Earth. Coor Banquet, however, is super refreshing. Love it.

sheesh calling that refreshing I don't know what to say to that, i never knew carbonated corn juice could be so well perceived, try this: Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbeir fresh and moderately chilled on a hot summer day, it is guaranteed the most refreshing thing you will ever have, it is like drinking a springy banana lemon juice with an added hint of clove. It is a life changing experience.

And I get stomach aches form blue light, it is like drinking infected metal/corn water.

I have seen it before. Definitely sounds like its worth a shot. I believe maybe the hint of clove might put it over the top. I shall provide a review shortly.

Wait...so Coors Light isn't the world's most refreshing beer? :o

I kid.

I've never seen anyone drink Blue Light. I unfortunately tried it once. Bud Light is lightyears ahead of it - that's how bad it is.

laugh.gif Wow. It really isn't THAT bad. Sheesh. I mean I get you guys are beer connoisseurs and all but to state Blue Light is that far behind something like Bud Light? You must not have drank it before. It is a Light beer yes, but it destroys Miller Lite for sure (not saying a whole lot I understand).

like i said above, one adjunct lager cannot destroy another, they all are crappy and not too far from each other in crappiness. Although I did have Light lager form Germany that really did kick all american light beer's asses. It is called Mahr's Leicht, it isn't incredible but it is an all-malt light beer and totally rapes the alcoholic corn juices.

I received Nugget Nectar in a trade today, this stuff isn't up with

Hopslam or Pliny or double Jack but it is a damn fine hoppy red ale/ipa.

I'm definitely not a beer connoisseur, I'm satisfied with American Adjunct Lagers, plus its no secret around here about my incredible bias towards Sam Adams and the Boston Beer Company.

Review for PBR -

A: Pours a clear straw yellow with a finger width head that dissipates quickly. A small amount of lacing left behind.

S: A malty graininess and ever so slight hops. Typical American adjunct lager here.

T: Not bad for the style. As with the scent, malt graininess and slight hops, the usual adjuncts, ect.

M: This one's highly carbonated, light to medium bodied.

D: Could drink it all day.

Basically what I expected. This typical American Adjunct lager gets a passing grade.

I noticed on your BA profile that you've reviewed over 700 beers - how do you get your paws on that many brews?

I live with my parents while going to college locally, my dad is into craft beer so he buys a lot of it. I also live between chicago and milwaukee and have access to a huge selection. I generally only buy singles which is way cheaper than 6 packs of each beer. I also have beer loving friends that share, or for instance if I am at a brewpub or bar I will always order samplers. And it is safe to say I spend all of my money on beer, though I am gonna graduate soon and will have to cut waaaaaaaaay back.

Just get a decent paying job (I know, easier said than done). My craft beer consumption went up when I got a real job, since I could afford to drink good stuff. Then I got into homebrewing. So not only was I drinking my beer, I had to drink different craft beers to find different styles I liked. There's always a keg of homebrew and various craft beers in my house. Rough life...

If you want an American lager but don't want a BMC product, go with Kona's Longboard. No adjuncts and perfect on a warm day.

Had Hopslam at the Lewis Black show in Michigan Theater. I really really really liked it. That flavor is unmistakable. A+++ in my book thumbup.gif

I prefer new glarus two women lager to kona, i found kona to be rather crappy despite no use of adjuncts.

get it soon, the flavor is already probably faded more than it should be, it is one of those beers you have to consume within a month of bottling or it starts to go downhill.

Molson Canadian is now the official beer of the NHL. Probably the most obvious choice.

It's the official beer of Wings games for me. thumbup.gif

Review for SA Boston Ale -

A: Pours a brown-amber color, very nice head that leaves plenty of lacing

S: A good combination of sweet malt, yeast and hops. Not overpowering, but a very pleasant aroma.

T: Tastes of caramel malts with a bit of a hoppy and dry finish. Very well balanced.

M: Very good mouthfeel, medium feel. Similar to Boston Lager.

D: Good drinkability. Not the beer to slam back, but to be enjoyed, and more than one can easily be had

just found out that my local bar expanded to 86 taps

My beer goes like this:

1) Do I have money? - Yes - Blue Moon or Shock Top.

- No - PBR or Natural Light.

I'm also new to the drinking game, so please don't judge :)

PBR is great whether you have money or not, especially on tap. Get that Natty Light out of here, though.

Taking a couple of friends to Founder's on Saturday. I rarely go because I prefer other places in town, but I'm excited to see what they have on tap now. Maybe I'll fill my growler so I can enjoy flat beer on Sunday.
