Everyone of my macro friends that have tried BAA have enjoyed it, but I've yet to see one buy it on their own. I guess it's the extra dollar a sixer that keeps them going back to their standard BMC.

And yes, I'll add my vote for BAA, if it even matters at this point.

I actually did not like Bud American. I actually Really wanted to because i knew all the bars would carry it and I'd finally be able to get a malty, hoppy pale ale as they promised.
One that I did not want to like (more so just "knew" I wouldn't) was the Bud Light Wheat. I only had a taste from someone's bottle, but I'd drink it over Blue moon.
Also Michelobe's craft selection isn't half bad at all. I'v enjoyed their Porter and Pale. I'd like to try their RyePa, Maybe I'll pick up a sampler tonight.

It's cheap and delicious.

Same with Schlitz.

PBR here too. It's more palatable than the rest of the commonly available macros and I gravitate to bars geared to hipsters or heshers so it's almost always the night's special.

PBR. I normally have a sixer of it stocked in the "Cheap & Domestic Fridge" on the back porch.

I have a soft spot in my heart for Michelob, from back in my college days.

I intend to try Bud American Ale, if only for the bottles. I need a stash of them lately.

Red Hook Winter Hook.

We tried a few dozen winter ales in a double-blind taste test and rated the beers.

Winter Hook did surprisingly well, and all the judges said they hated Red Hook beers. I think the fact that it was one of the lightest and most balanced of all the winter ales might be a factor.

Which year's recipe, alexdagrate? They change the recipe every year, so you'd need to define which one y'all liked.

One year, the recipe included Starbucks espresso. That year's Winterhook was so popular (and delicious) that they started bottling it as a standard in 22's: Red Hook Double Black Stout. I haven't seen one of those in years.
