Default Most overrated high priced beers

I'm not talking about hard to find beers or extremely high priced beers. Just popular beers that aresold at "import price" in most bars that you might think why would anyone pay good money for that beer. Just curious to see what all of you think on this. Here is my list.

1. Heineken (I heard Heineken in Holland was 100% better, but I think what we get here in the states just plain sucks)

2. Corona (don't think it sucks, but it certainly isn't worth the price)

3. Guinness (I like it, but it doesn't hold a candle to most good microbrew stouts, and even other large commercial stouts such as Beamish.)

4. Harp (don't think it sucks its just not that good)

If it is possible to post a pole after the thread has some responses I might post one with the options being anything anyone wrote. Hope to get some responses I am curious as to what you all think on this issue.

Completely different from the stuff in Ireland and again from the stuff I used to drink in Scotland. The American version is way too watery. You should almost be able to chew it down in big gulps!

There's some company that has a "Vintage ale" small bottle for like $8. crap.

um, what's the company that makes Damnation and Salvation? those beers are alright, but their temptation, redemention, blah blah's are just stupid. they age decent beer in oak barrels and add cherrys and champagne and other things to just destroy their beers, then sell them at high prices. all the idiots here rave over them but they're pure $#!^!!

I raise the BS flag on that at every bar I go too--if they say a beer is "import prices" it damn well better be imported. I noticed they are using the term "premium" more now....
