Default Favorite American Lager

I find that with home brewing, and with beer drinking in general, those of us in-the-know scoff at this style quite often. It's always going to be a stand-by for me, and I think it'll be neat to see what we all think about the classic American Lager.

For me, it's Grain Belt Premium. I grew up on this stuff, and since it's being made in New Ulm, Mn, IMO it's better than ever. It's crisp, light, flavorful, and pleasant.

So have at it. As a home brewer, what is your go-to American Lager?

If I'm slumming and/or mowing, I'll go for some Miller High Life. Somtimes...gasp....I will even get some MGD 64. But High Life is the s^%t.

What do you mean by American Lager? Do you mean the style or a Lager Brewed in America?

If you're asking about favorite Adjunct Lager, it's got to be Yuengling Premium Lager.

Mostly Yuengling .
Not really a fan of the style though.
Hopefully by the end of the summer I'll be able to say mine to answer this question.

I assume this question refers to BMC type lagers, not craft or even something like Yuengling.

I used to like Blatz and Helimann's Old Style. They were less expensive than the big 3 and had something more resembling beer flavor

Yuengling is about an hour and 10 minutes from me so thats def my fav lager. Started drinking it in cans in high school.

I'd rather drink four of them then a 12 pack of BMC fizzy yellow water.

MGD in the black and gold label, not ice, was my fave for a long time. I too like PBR. Regular Bud as well.

Shiner Blonde is my answer.

Yuengling is my go-to when I'm at a bar that doesn't serve crafts. It's also a nice lawnmower beer at under 5% abv. My only complaint is the green bottles, but it's even decent skunked.

I like Grain Belt Premium also. Remember when it was brewed by the Minnesota Brewing Company in St.Paul? I think it won gold at the GABF in 94 or 95.
