I'm not afraid to admit my love for Natty Light and Miller High Life and occasionally PBR. Would rather drink those than BL or Lite.

no rolling rock yet?

fine i'll say it rolling rock, pbr, maybe miller light, then yuengiling (over did it on that one). that's if we're considering macro-brewed lagers.

I thought that was a pale ale?

That's why I stopped buying Yuengling bottles and only buy their cans now. I've been much happier. Not to mention Cans>Bottles

Adjunct Lager may have been a better use of the term. I mainly meant full-flavored American style lagers- nothing light. The grain belt I grew up on has been from New Ulm, but my age is against me on that one. I will go for a Miller Genuine Draft (or as we call it, the jenny) if grain belt is not available. Pabst was great until it became popular, and now I will not pay the price for it unless it's a 6 pack of pounders. High life and Hamm's are good, but a little too smooth for their own good. Budweiser and I are enemies. Not just because of the beerolitics, but something changed and it's not a pleasant beer for me. Never hand a yuenglings but I've heard great things. Rolling Rock was awesome years ago, but it changed once they started making it in St Louis. Funny line with the "pale ale" though. I've got a friend that swears by Point Special Lager from Steven's Point, WI. He gave me 2 cans a while back and I have to say, I really did enjoy them. Anyone care to weigh in on that beer or any others that haven't been mentioned?

Nope, it's misleading because it says pale on the label: It's a pale lager. Forgot about this one. I haven't drank that much of it since they sold out and moved away from here but it enjoy this one from time to time in the summer.

Couldn't agree more, it's also wonderful from a tap. If you get it super fresh from a barrel it has a nice faint fruit and banana flavor.

I've enjoyed Stroh's, and lately Michelob Original Lager has been pretty good. Steven's Point Lager is good too.

Haven't had a "regular" american light lager in quite a while. Except to cook a beer can chicken...

I forgot to mention another local American lager: Straub. It has a really nice crisp earthy taste. I always say it tastes like dirt, but in a good way.
