I don't fully understand the mindset of drinking the beer that's easiest to get drunk on. If your goal is efficient inebriation, hard liquor is called for. Beer should be for taste. The only way I understand it is for people who aren't good at math or attention to avoid alcohol poisoning, because bubble-gut paces you.
I'm a very tiny minority here, but over the years I've learned that I like classic non-"light"-labeled macrobrew lagers and pilsners. MGD, Michelob, Labatt's, Tsingtao, Molson, Carta Blanca, Dos Equis, etc - all in the original version. They are still light relative to what more sophisticated drinkers like (tankinbeans apparently enjoys eating his beer with a fork and knife), but they have the flavor that I enjoy in a sufficient amount. Most labeled "light" taste watered down by comparison. Unfortunately for me, plain non-light macrobrew lagers are tough to find.
That's not all
I like, but it's my go-to for accompanying food or for when I'm thirsty. I do like bocks and some ambers.
I don't get it. Isn't beer supposed to be manly, for macho men to drink while watching football? Why are they drinking dainty low-calorie "light" beers?
