Could that be beer gas? I've had a similar 'saltiness' issue before at a not so great place. Literally all their beers tasted salty. It's gotta be some sort of common cost-cutting shortcut.

Can't say I've ever tasted bananas and salt in Bud Light before. All I taste is fizzy rice water that never fails to give me a headache. My pool team (mostly craft beer drinkers and homebrewers) rather deal with Amberbock than Bud Light. Sucks they won't let us bring in our own. We have been known to congregate in the parking lot prior to the match with foam cups full of "sweet tea" though. It's like an impromptu homebrew club meeting.

Putting my 6 pack of Zywiec on the counter to pay, the kid behind the register goes "Oh man, I didn't know we had the zy-wick. That stuff will get you F'd up!"

Now, I am only Polish by association, but man did he murder that pronunciation. It's supposed to be zhih-vee-ets. And it's a light lager...how's that supposed to f me up?

My own personal statistics nerd says you are correct!

I work at a one of the only Brewpubs in Miami, Titanic Brewery (shameless plug) so I hear a ton of these.

Customer: Yeah man, i'm totally a beer guy, what do you have on tap?
Me: Well, we have 12 brews we make ourselves, what do you like?
Customer: You know, Miller Lite, Miller 64, I really like Corona too.
Me: .... ???

It didn't come across that way. Glad to hear that's how you meant it.

As for preconceptions, all I've heard is how great Yeungling is. I happen to disagree. Nor do I look down on BMC/mass lagers. I'm not a good enough brewer to make them. But I'll be damned if I'll pay for something I don't like just to be cool or to get a buzz. If that's snobbery, so be it.

You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

We went to a bar, sat down at a bar table. Waitress came over and asks for our order. I said, "What do you have on tap?". She replied, "We don't have a tap."... ("Crickets" for a minute...) Then I said, "Okay, what do you have in bottles?". She replied, "The case is over there, you can go look.". I seriously thought I was on candid camera...
