Like most of the Coors lineup, I really don't like Blue Moon. All of my friends love it and praise its "microbrewery-style". What do you think about it?

Better than other Coors products but ultimately unexceptional.

Would you rather drink Bud or Natty Light?

Yeah, I think I would rather drink bud than blue moon, Bud tastes like mineral water...

I have to agree with EdWort on this one. In the hierarchy for me, Blue Moon rates higher than Bud or Natty Light. Of course, at that level Michelobs Amber Bock would definitely get pulled instead.

Look at as positive steps though. I was out in a group last night where several Blue Moons were taken which might indicate those people can be pulled to the light (of better beer). Give it time. Encourage the drinking and gradually transition to other wheats for them. Maybe eventually they'll drink something everyone can enjoy.

You don't have to like Blue Moon. Everything will be ok.

I like Blue Moon because a lot of people like Blue Moon so they buy clone kits.

+1 for not liking Blue Moon. I don't love the Honey Moon, but it is much better/drinkable than Blue Moon. Too bad its only seasonal...

At first I really liked Blue Moon, but the last couple of times I bought it I didn't like it nearly as much.
