Do these two really belong in the same category?

And as for myself...I have no dirty beer secrets. If BMC is all that's available, I drink water.

On occasion I pick up a sixer of Rio Blanco Pal Ale ( to help out the locals ) or if I can find it , Flying Dog Pale Ale . No BMC of any weight in my house.

I've been known to drink the occasional PBR or twelve. Sometimes, you've just gotta let it hang out.

when I go to vist my family during the holidays (in rural nortwest Ohio.... about 30 miles away from absolutely nothing), the only choices for beer in the bars are the big three americans. The only import they offer Molsons.

So, since I have no choice, I just order a Big Andre. That's a 40oz mug of draught Bud Lite. I always have a couple, and I always feel like total hell the next day.

I think so. Drink a real German Bock and then drink a Shiner. They are not the same in body, sweetness, or bitterness. While Shiner is a drinkable beer, they use corn in their mash to thin it out and boost the ABV. Yes, it's a beer with flavor but not true Bock flavor IMO. Hey, I feel the same way about Killians and Bud Light. I can drink these too and enjoy them but not truely savor and appreciate them like a full rich brittish ale or a light full flavored weizen.

Sure, compared to a real German bock, Shiner might come up a bit short...but that doesn't put it in the same class as Bud Light.

I have admitted to having a Coors Light once in a while - mostly if I have been out playing basketball or working outside on a hot day. It works well for rehydration - kind of like Gatorade (with about the same amount of kick - anyone who ever got buzzed on Coors Light did so because they were highly motivated).

But for actual beer drinking, the closest I come to a guilty pleasure is Yeungling's - lager or Black and Tan. They both deliver a great combination - cheap and very good. The lager, especially, in the Philly area, is hugely popular, to the point where if you go into any bar in the area and simply order a lager, you get Yeungling's.

Used to be Miller Lite for me, before I started homebrewing. Now if I'm desperate for cheap beer, it's Yuengling for me also. Not just lager though... premium, light, black and tan... whatever they've got

I still drink the occasional Miller Lite or Corona, typically when at a friends place (and already provided for )
