Dick said it best.  American lagers really do hit the spot when that is all
you want.

I like either Bud or Coors, depending upon whom I am drinking with.  Coors
has just a hint of a metallic ring to me, but one that stops far short of
unpleasant (which metallic taste is definitely).  If forced to make a
choice, I will say Bud, since Coors staked themselves to brewing capital
with production of uranium fuel pellet "hockey pucks."

Wouldn't ANYTHING "hit the spot" if it's also "all you want"?

   Yes.  It's a tautology.

   For me, when "all I want" is something with little flavor that
quenches my thirst, I'll drink water.

Re: More Bud or Coors


I agree.  Water is thirst quenching, but so are American lagers when you
want a beer that is not complicated, just wet and with a bit of alcohol.

Don't get me wrong, I once thought that Redhook ESB was awesome.  Someone
told me that Fuller's would simply blow it away.  "Oh yeah, right," I
thought.  Upon tasting, I had to admit that they were right.  For my taste,
Samuel Adams Boston Lager never gets old.  The Stock Ale that they offer can
be better still, but to my taste, it is very inconsistent, going from one of
the best to definitely not as good as the Boston Lager, depending upon the
batch (or handling, whichever is to blame).

Re: More Bud or Coors


I once declared in frustration, "All I want is one crappy beer."  To which,
someone responded with a Blatz beer.  I cannot begin to tell you how far off
the spot that was, despite fitting the request precisely.  Have you ever
been to a place where tap water is hideous...so much so that you wonder what
that famous line about "...water, water everywhere, but nary a drop to
drink..." was complaining about when all that sea water will do is kill you
by dehydration?

What spot is that?  The stain on the carpet?

Re: More Bud or Coors


Are you recommending a beer that can clean carpet stains?  Name, please!

Re: More Bud or Coors


I haven't tried any of the three that you mention.  I will have to keep them
in mind.  I do like Pilsner Urzquel (sp?).

My problem with BudMillerCoors is that, to me, they are NOT
refreshing! They are much too sweet, nearly cloyingly so. When I go
for light lager (and I do like them well made) I tend to opt for
versions from smaller American breweries such as Victory Prima Pils,
New Belgium Blue Paddle Pils, and my new favorite Sierra Nevada
Summerfest. A nice smack of bitterness that is very refreshing.

Pilsner Urquell.  If you like that, seek out Radeberger Pilsner, but the
the Victory, NB, and SN beers benefit because of freshness issues; PU
and Radeberger have to cross an ocean, while the other three are made
domestically.

Thanks for the tips.  I haven't posted in ages.  In the meantime, I had
become accustomed to a seeming increasing disdain for bottom posting among
emailers.

Re: More Bud or Coors



American beers use rice in the formula. It is something they started
doing during a long time ago to make ends meat. They are not real beer
as far as I am concerned!

Really?  Which ones?  What kind of rice?  Basmati, Japanese

Really?  Which meat?  Venison, beef, pork?  Can you really make meat

But you don't matter, as far as I'm concerned.  See how this works?

Oh, by the way:  you're an idiot.  No need to thank me for this valuable
information.

This is not new information.  The Industrial Light Lagers (Bud,
Millers, and Coors) have been adding fillers to their beers for
decades.  But it's not to make ends meet.  It's to minimize the
malt taste in their brews so they taste like corn-flavored water.

Some pale lagers do.  Some use other adjuncts.

To achieve a specific flavour profile, actually. Which has done rather
well for them in the marketplace.
