I don't touch the Light stuff per say, but I've been known to seriously throw some Budweiser down when I'm on the cheap.

In fact, that's the plan for the upcoming Memorial Day camping trip: a case or two of Bud with maybe a 12 pack of Newcastle / Shiner / Blue Moon for meals when I'll want a little something better to go with ribs... and b/c SWMBO can't stomache a full weekend of just Bud anymore without a "good one" thrown in on occasion.

May be I'm not a full blown alcoholic yet, but if really thirsty it's water, ice tea, lemonade . . . Beer's for getting buzzed, accompanying good food, great flavor . . . did I say getting buzzed?

Just say no to bad beer!!!!

I love me a cold Miller Lite personally........


it's a good beer. most beer snobs like to jump on the I hate BMC bandwagon though. Its just another style of beer. Myself, well I HATE belgiums. But do I run around preaching how much they suck? no......


sorry, touchy subject. Its just that its a style of beer that gets the short end of the stick all too often. But I'd like to see any one of you beer snobs try and produce the same beer on that quanity over and over again like the big boys.

That's the beauty of having choices and being able to make our own decisions!!! Do what you like and what makes you happy.

To those who hate them, you have to remember that these beers usually win or rank very highly in their categories at the GABF each year, for American Lager and American Light Lager.

You may not like them, but they're a very good representation of their style.

I drank enough of the "Big 3" in my younger days top make up for my older days.

My "mower" beer is now Newcastle, Boulevard, Linenkugle, J W Dundee Honey Brown.

But I really miss my Oly.

What are the BJCP guidelines for the "Crap In A Can" style?

Cant stand any BMC, and never could.
I don't drink to get buzzed, in fact I don't like the feeling of more than a light buzz.
I enjoy the flavor of a good beer, and prefer darker and/or hoppier beers.
If that is not available then unsweetened iced tea or water is great to drink. If I'm thirsty then I drink water. I usually will have a glass of water and a beer with my dinner.
To me the BMC beers or any light lager tastes about the same, and that is not a good thing.

Its still beer. Its as different from an IPA as an IPA is from a Belgian Wit. Personally I love beer, in many, many different types, and try to appreciate all that I can. Its a light lager, its not meant to have a powerful taste, its meant to be just what it is. Clean and refreshing, light taste, good carbonation, not very filling.
