Boddington's Pub Ale isn't bad either.

BYW, Beer Wars is pretty informative, but a little biased... There are some flawed arguments in it.
Everyone has their own opinions, but trying to be objective as possible and trying to take into account the brewer's intent, Boddington's is just absolutely terrible.

Before it was taken over Boddingtons was my all time favorite. Then the taste changed and I didn't know why. I still like it, just not as much as I did.

+1 to this. I saw this brand on vacation a couple years ago and was excited to try something new... boy, was I disappointed.

You have to give a thumbs up to their brew masters though. Theyre able to consistantly turn out the same product again and again. I may not like the product, but thats tough to do

I was shocked when I saw this recently too. First of all the fact that it was not being drunk by homeless vagrants and dumped in the woods, but by rich-looking frat bros on their porch. Do any of these "Ice" products actually freeze concentrate?

ABInBev either makes or controls a large interest in so many brands, it's surprising.

Off the top of my head, here's some beers in the ABInBev family I consider in the "not bad" to "good" range:

Bass
Hoegaarden
Leffe
Boddingtons
Franziskaner
Budweiser Budvar (the original, aka Czechvar)
Spaten
Goose Island (if they don't already, there's at least plans for them to completely purchase the entire 100% stake in Goose Island).
