Well, any port in a storm, as evidenced by rule 3.

I wouldn't rate it too high above Bud/Coors level. Look how light it is too. Beer shouldn't be that light unless it is cloudy. Or maybe summer.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

True. And I agree with the Gutterman, there is a time and place for cheap light beer.

If there is one good thing about living in Germany it´s go to be the wide range of good beer!
At the moment I´m into Köstritzer which is a light tasting black beer but a lot of breweries do seasonal beers... Mai Bock, Oktoberfest Bier, Märzer and so on.
The general opinion in Germany is that Americans can´t make decent beer... I tend to agree although I am also willing to believe that some of the small breweries probably churn out some drinkable brew.
When back in the UK I drink Stones best bitter.
The root of all faults, all failings, is nothing other than ignorance. This ignorance is like mistaking a heap of stones on the horizon for a human figure; it has no basis whatsoever, which means that even the source of of these faults and failings does not exist.

The general opinion of Germans is wrong then. I've never been to Germany so I won't judge their beer making capabilities by the crappy stuff that gets imported over here (Becks, St. Pauli Girl, DAB, Lowenbrau and a host of others, usually just crappy lagers in green bottles). In my various trips outside of the US I've never come across an American made beer that I would drink so I can see how that misconception could be formed. When I was in Japan I saw cans of American made beer that I'd never heard of ans would never consider drinking.

Very true. The microbrews are pretty popular nationwide which usually leads to a good choice of big micros and local micros and nearly every bar you go to. And for the record, they taste nothing like Budweiser and Coors. Another generalization: California and Colorado have the best microbrews.

Not that we had time to drink any before that incredibly wasted guy got us kicked out of Goose Island, but Chicago does NOT have any good microbrews that I know of.

I like a few fairly common German imports. Bitburger being the one that stands out most.

I remember drinking mostly Sam Adams Winter at the Cut the Crap Cougar bar. And then moving onto hard alcohol.

St. Louis has a great microbrew called Schlafly (nothing to do with Phyllis). I chalk it up to being the same kind of thing like when I lived in Salt Lake City. In a place that is so stifling, you are going to have a pretty decent underground/alternative scene. That's what Schlafly is to Budweiser (or should I say AB-InBev).
