Sounds a little like WAYWN (moreso in SW&D than MC).

My overall favorite is probably Schneider und Sohne Kristalweissen, with a lemon. Damn near impossible to find in the US, though one can find other Schneider beers and other Kristalweissen. I've never had a Kristalweissen I didn't love, but they're hard to find. As for what I generally buy, if Pilsner Urquell's on sale I'll get it. If not I'll generally take home Trader Joe's house-brand Vienna Lager. It tastes a lot like Gosser.

The best beer I have ever tasted is Delerium Tremens. My favorite widely available beer is Stella. That said, I don't drink a lot of beer.

With one or two exceptions, none of the aforementioned beers are very strange or exotic. Not served at every single bar, sure, but easy enough to find at a place with a respectable selection.

The Texas part of me wants to endorse the Shiner Bock choice earlier in this thread, but I find it nothing more than an average bock. I vacillate between dark beers (porters/stouts) and wheat beers. Among the more commonly available dark beers, Guiness and Sierra Nevada porter are my favorites. The quality of a Guiness tap and pour varies widely and as a previously poster mentioned, a poor one will taste like ashtray rinse. Among common wheat beers, my favorites, in order, are Schneider Weisse, Franziskaner Hefeweissen, and Paulaner Hefeweissen. Both Blue Moon and Hoegaarden have too much of an acidic finish. The Belgians should stick to Trappist ales. The Heinekens and Sapporos and Yeunglings and Stellas of the world are all decidely bland and useful only when in locales where the water is not potable and respectable beers are not available.

Nectar of the Gods...and dirt cheap during happy hour at Yardhouse.

I prefer bland.

But you hate Rolling Rock! That's like hating McDonald's french fries. They may not be the best. They may not be memorable at all. But how can you hate them?

Our fridge usually has Peroni, Negro Modello and Guinness. I don't like stinky beer or micro-beer.

So true. I'm gonna go to the store today and write down the name of the hardest to pronounce beer and I'll be back with my results of my latest "what I drink".

The scotch thread is more elitist than any beer thread so enough you light beer quaffing sissies.

I have been told 1,000 times that all true beer drinkers love Guiness. I can't stand it, or any stout, so I am not a true beer drinker.

There's a difference between bland and plain nasty.

They make more than one brand of scotch?

EDIT: Sorry j, forgot about multi quote.

I am surprised you find it nasty. It seems to me to be designed to be as unobjectionable as possible.

Back in my early twenties I used to drink tons of Rolling rock and then fill the bottles with cigarette butts when my ashtrays got full.
