Ah, right. I forgot the beer snobs that won't drink it because they make more than 3 bottles a year, or because sell it at a price that their working class customers will pay.
My mistake.

Preconceptions are a powerful thing, and while I try not to dispute any one person, beer snobbery is a massive trend on boards like this.

I love all beer that's brewed well and without flaws and even enjoy an occasional Bud or Coors. Just brewed a rice lager similar to Coors Banquet.

That being said, there's something wrong with the way Yeungling handles their yeast. All of their beers taste like banana to me. I toured the brewery in Tampa and ended up belching banana for the rest of the day.

The wife and I were at an Old Chicago a few months back. I ordered a Fat Tire. Waitress comes back maybe 3 minutes later and says "we're out of Fat Tire". I was in a hoppy mood, so I said "what's the hoppiest thing you have on tap?" She gets this really thoughtful, serious look on her face and replies "Guinness - it's really hoppy"
My wife - a beer snob-in-progress - busts out laughing, and then chokes it back when the waitress gave her the "you doubt me" look.

I smiled and ordered a Two Hearted

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!

I taste banana in Bud Light sometimes, especially draft.

If you're not trying to be argumentative or accusatory, I recommend not being argumentative or accusatory. It's much more effective than being argumentative and accusatory, then claiming you didn't mean to be.

Before I tried a Yuengling, I had only heard positive things. I was not brewing my own beer yet, and I wasn't (nor am I now) opposed to BMC beers as a valid taste preference. I thought, "I haven't tried one of those, I've heard they're good, let's find out what the buzz is about."

Then I hated it.

There's no snobbery going on here, it's just a matter of taste. Even the guy who claims only to like craft brews (or however he phrased it) isn't necessarily showing bias against mass market beers. It's a simple fact that those beers cover a very narrow range of styles, and styles outside that range are much, much better represented among craft/microbreweries. (Just in terms of number, not necessarily "better" meaning quality.)

I used to like Yuengling when I predominantly drank Busch Light and Killians. I later switched to mostly craft brews and even not drinking at all for a year and a half. The last time I had a Yuengling I expected to like it as I always had, but I didn't. I notice the same thing when I try Busch Light and the other BMC beers I used to drink.

Ever upgrade your coffee and then go back to Folgers? Your taste buds get familiar with what you got.

I drink a lot of pales and IPA's, flavorful beers, too. When I have my neighbor's Pilsner (he's an excellent, long-time brewer) I often don't like it very much. It's not a bad beer, just not my style.

I used to drink a lot of it. Was happy to see it on tap recently.

Too sweet for me now. Often the Yuengling taps aren't clean around here too. But even when it's clean, I don't really like it.

I get green apples from Bud. It's pretty faint but over time disgusts me more and more. I can handle most of the macro beers, but have a hard time with Bud.

When we go to this bowling alley they have Bud Light or Boulevard Wheat on tap. The Boulevard always tastes funky, like feet or something, and it's WAY more expensive. So we pay the $11 or whatever it is for a pitcher of Bud Light. I usually end up having a hard time not thinking about how it tastes like salt and has banana hints.
