as far as cheap domestic beers go... I like the PC beers, and Red Cap Ale far better than any of the Lakeport, Carling, etc.

Heineken is an average beer for sure. Especially when you start sampling some of the micro breweries out there. In the mainstream brands, Pilsner Urquell, Stella Artois... Beck, just to name a few, are, imo, far better beers than Heineken.

Stella
Keith's (of any kind)
Guinness

Luckily I can find #1 and 3 if I look hard enough here, but I have been going through severe withdrawl of my hometown brew. I think I'm due for a care package...

Average is being nice. Seriously, I have never understood how that monkey pee could become so popular. Corona, an extremely average beer, is even light years better IMO.

Heineken is decent with salt.

Corona with a lime is the shizzle when I get home on a hot summer day.

While writing my post, I was thinking of including Corona in the overrated category. However, you're right. At least a Corona (with a lime) tastes good at +34C temperature.

You beat me to it znk...

They kinda made a typo in the name of the beer. It was suppose to be Russell's Cream Ale.

Hey Beaker, I heard LW11's favourite is Russell's Cream Ale, is that true? Especially in a Draft... with good creamy head on top of it... That's delicious!

She might have tried it, but she moved on to another beer when this beer didn't pick her as its favourite (?)

I like my beer clean, crisp and cool with an easy drinking taste.

As opposed to filthy, syrupy and piss-warm beer that kind of shreds the insides of your throat.

Ok rant time for me as well. Heineken is indeed boring and bland, and so is Stella for that matter. These "import brands" are meant to be classy stuff because they're foreign, but they're really just mass-produced tedium with no personality. Quebec is actually a great place for fantastic microbrewery beer - aside from the always enjoyable Unibroue (which is actually owned by Sleeman, which is itself owned by Sapporo), St. Ambroise makes an INCREDIBLE oatmeal stout. Dieu du Ciel! products are consistently top-tier, and other breweries like Bieropholie and Charlevoix are also grand. It depresses me how many people believe that the best beers are devoid of flavour and "go down easy". For me, a good beer has a storng taste and many flavours involved.

Any Quebecer who wants to get serious about beer needs to take a good look at what the province has to offer beyond the big names. Spending part of my time in Ontario, where the beer selection is governed by the awful Beer Store, I've come to appreciate what Quebec has got.

Incidentally, you know what sucks? Japanese beer. One of the best selling cans/bottles is Asahi Super Dry... draft. That's right, for (over?) 15 bucks for 6 cans you can drink the best (not really) DRAFT in Japan. There are completely drinkable kinds of beer here, but NONE of them would be considered "good" unless you've been here too long, and you've gotten used to them.

My area actually has a microbrewery which produces 3 of the 5 beers (out of dozens mind you) that I consider worthy of imbibing, but it will tear your wallet a new one if you try to stock up.

I have usually been a Red Beer draft fan: Rickards Red usually. Sometimes Keith's. Depends where you are. Rickards Red in bottles is horrible though

Got into Whites and Wheat beers in general a couple of years ago. Blue Moon Draft in the States is pretty good. I find that Rickards White has that same kind of citrus flavour. Close match. Nice that the Rickards White in bottles, unlike the Red, tastes pretty good. Just finished one in fact. It has been in short supply at the BEER STORE in Ontario, likely due to recent popularity

by far keiths is #1 in my books and its not even close, i do enjoy sleeman's honey brown and a few other beers every now and then, stella wasnt bad when i had it but its been years.

after that.. i dont mind kingfisher (here in india) but it tastes like something (i wanna say molson canadian but my friends and i couldnt quite put our finger on what it tastes like). my fave american beer is rolling rock and something else i sampled at busch gardens, forget what it was.. it was good tho. finally, corona on a hot day is indeed enjoyable.. something about it is relaxing almost.

they taste identical cause Rickards white is labeled as blue moon for the US market.
