Default Beer style that goes well with KFC?

I have a mean hankering for some KFC extra crispy, and there is a great liquor store with a good beer selection right down the street from the KFC, so I was thinking of going and picking up some commercial beer and some KFC chicken. Any suggestions as to what I should pick up at the liquor store?

I vote for anything with LOTS of hops. A hoppy pale ale, or IPA would be my choice.

Oh, and when you get down to the biscuits switch to a super cold lager to wash it all down!

I would say a nice German Lager.

I have to differ with the majority of the suggestions and say that I think a can (yes a can) of Belhaven Draught Scottish Ale would be just the ticket to give a nice sweet compliment to the salty savory chicken.

Who else beside the "fry anything" Scots would make the perfect compliment to the Col.'s finest?

my ¢2.

That sounds good too, but the frying Germans might beg to differ.

A malty Vienna lager might be the ticket along the same lines as your suggestions. You can easily find some Sam Adams Boston Lager in a pinch.
I think Guinness would work well too.
