Default Best cheap commercial beer you've ever had?

To address the balance from the worst commercial beer thread, of course.

Kingston press cider; locally brewed dry cider, 5.3% and £1.09 per 660ml bottle. Cheap but incredibly well balanced sweetness and tartness with a vintage aftertaste, brilliant!

Greene king ipa - 99p a pint for a long time in wetherspoons, delicious easy drinking ale.

Not sure if it counts or not, but before I got into homebrewing (and discovered the wonderful world of micro and craft brew), my go-to beer was always Yuengling lager.

nothing beats a PBR for taste when you're going for quantity over quality.

Sierra Nevada? Does that count? That was my gateway beer. Sams Club/COSTCO have 24 packs for $19-$21 usually. Under a dollar a beer is cheap to me.

For light beer Old Milwaukee Lt. is pretty good and another I stumbled on is Coors Extra Gold. It is cheap and pretty good.

SNPA is not that cheap at about $1 a bottle or I'd vote for that. I can't remember how much I paid for it, but I enjoy a Shiner bock from time to time.

PBR is the best cheap beer ever. I can drink so many of those.

Another vote for PBR. On a hot day half PBR half sprite makes a hell of a redneck shandy mmmmmmmmmmmmm...
