That's impossible for me personally to say because it all depends on the mood one is in. But, my personal favorite ever is Franziskaner and I drink cases of them all the time. I also loooove Weyerbacher's Imperial Pumpkin Ale (and DFH's Punkin). I find myself drinking Asahi in the big 1 liter cans a lot when I want a lighter crisp beer. Oh, one of my favorites was Wicküler Pilsener, very unique taste IMO for a german pilsner (to which a number have very similar tastes). I've heard they went out of business though.

I'm too new at brewing to be able to list my own yet.
