    Goat? I thought it was alligator ****. Those who drink it use the lime to kill the taste. But then what can you expect from beer drinkers? Glad I quit 30 yearsa ago.

    It really is just Miller High Life in a different bottle.

    So many people have destroyed their taste buds from smog, smoking, snack food, etc. they don't know the difference.
  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 22,265 Senior Member
    It could also be that we know the difference and we just like beer that tastes like soda water.

    I'm betting the all inclusive resorts have Corona.

    Before Corona became popular, most of my Mexican friend's Dads drank Tecate.

    Negra Modelo is indeed a fine beer. Corona makes Coors Light seem palatable. Another beer that is absolutely atrocious is a relatively new (to me) brand called Landshark Lager. Holy ****... I won't even drink it.

    About a million years ago, me and an Air Force buddy went out to lunch and asked the waitress what kind of beer they had. She replied, "Bud, Bud Light, Coors Light, Michelob, Miller MGD, Miller Lite and Rolling Rock." He deadpanned to her, "So... You have one beer?" She obviously didn't get it.

    You know what else is just terrible? Heineken. I thought Europe was better than that. **** wouldn't have let that ****-beer happen.
  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 22,265 Senior Member
    Heineken was better in the 70's. Something changed either ownership or they started brewing it here, I don't know.

    Do they still make Moose Head? It was skunky, but I used to like it.

    BTW I was never a fan of Rolling Rock.

    It always saddens me when I travel to the DC/Baltimore area and go to restaurants that have this on tap. It is pretty crappy.

    When you are next back there collecting your pot of gold from the Military Industrial Complex, drink some Dogfish Head beers.

    Oddly enough I will be fleecing you tax payers on another boondoggle in a few more weeks. I had one of their IPAs before not sure which one, it was pretty good and I am not a big IPA fan. I see they have some sort of brown ale...I am going to have to find some of that.

    I don't mind a Corona with lime. Coors works too.

    Lone Star should be number one on that list.

    BTW Yeungling is Americas oldest brewery, so there.

    Jim, there is a Dogfish Head beer called "Sixty One." It is brewed with Syrah grape must. Yes, it sounds odd, but it is very good.

    Speaking of wasted tax dollars I just got to see an F-35B do it's hover landing today. Not a total hover because our airfield is too high and we don't have the right kind of surface for it, but it went into full VSTOL mode and landed at about 50 knots. It was pretty cool.

    LMAO.

    I am just hoping George isn't a beer drinker or he just may ban me for life for this one.
