... THY NAME BE BUDWIESER SELECT 55!

I've drank a lot of bad beer in my day, I'm not gonna lie. But I've finished them all. Why, because it was beer. I made a frightening discovery tonight, one I''m not really thrilled to share. But I don't think I can finish this 12 pack. This beer sucks so bad I think I'm gonna have to flush it.

Warning: Do Not Buy Budweiser Select 55. That stupid red crown should be banished from the beer kingdom. Forever!

You bought a 55 cal beer and thought it would taste like anything other than bad water?

Even in my youth the worst beer I'd drink was BL or Coors Light... I've become even more of a beer snob these days.

Dude, this beer sucks to a whole new level. I opened a can, took a swig and I thought the carbonation had disappeared, so I thought I'd just opened a bad can of beer. So, I went ahead and drank, because I don't waste beer, whatever, no biggie. Then, I open the second can and same thing. So, I poor the can into a class and it foams right up! Good solid head of beer. I'm like "wow, it don't look flat." So give a can to my friend and say "what do you think?" He's like "yah, what's wrong with it, it's flat."

So, wtf?

I open another can and same thing. Now I'm like WTF?

I bought it in a liquor store in Wyoming. I don't know the legalities of beer in Wyoming but I'm pretty sure it's 6.0 beer.

Wow. How very Colorado of you. Coors is an outstanding beer, especially the banquet beer. The only beer I'd prefer more might be a Whatney's or maybe a Sam Adams pale ale, and I've downed suds in Europe, England and South America. Coors matches up just fine with anything in the world.

Bud55 would probably be drank by you just because it is bud. 55 calories. I think water has more calories than that. I believe it is the first beer that advertises that you actually lose weight drinking it because one can and you are going to the toilet and sticking the finger down the throat.

I don't usually drink beer.. but when I do.. I prefer anything not named Budweiser, Coors, Michelob, or any other cheap nasty beer.

Give me a Guinness any day, thank you. Or better, a good imported English porter or dark lager any day. Budweiser.. I used to drink that when I was in the Army and didn't know any better.

whole lot of apples being compared to oranges in here.

Coors is a fine example of an American Lager. There are literally hundreds of other styles of beer available throughout the world. If you don't like Coors/Bud/ whatever, that's fine but it's not because they make swill, it's because you'd prefer a different style.

I've never had Bud 55, but I'm sure it is exactly what they intended it to be - a very watered down, flavorless version of an already watered down, flavorless style, aimed at health snobs and women. If that's not you, I can't blame you for not liking it, but you don't like it because it's bad beer, you don't like it because you don't like the style.

* unless the particular batch you had was defective for some reason. Maybe Budweisers carbonating system was broke when they canned your particular 12'er. I once had a 12-er of Blue Moon that tasted like cooked celery- absolutely terrible. I now know that's a symptom of bacteria being present during fermentation, and it was a manufacturing defect - all Blue Moon does not taste like celery.

Great Divide tap room at 22nd and Larimer (I think). Good beers, cool patio.

Take the New Belgium tour in Fort Collins. AWESOME experience.

Hit up the Coors Brewery. I know, I know, not the best beer in the world (though i still drink my share of CL and Banquet), but it's cool to see a macro-brew in action.

And if you like whiskey, the Stranahan's Tasting Room at Alameda and I-25 is a must-visit.

If you just want a bar, check out the Falling Rock Tap House downtown. About 150 beers on tap. Good stuff.

I just tried the Lefthand two weeks ago and liked it very much.

Coors and Bud are good brews but I had so many of them when I was younger. Now I try to venture out and expand my tastings. Way too many good flavorful micro brews out there to limit myself to the big corporate domination.

I've toured the Bud Brewery here in Jax twice in the year we've been here. Bud's American Ale is just about as good as a microbrew (but I'd still drink Yuengling over it). Beach Bum Blonde Ale is good too.

Don't know if they have it in CO, but back in Oregon Deschute's Mirror Pond Pale Ale is a very good beer, my wife loves their seasonal Twilight Summer Ale.

One of these days, I'm going to try and brew up my own batch...

If you asked me if I thought that you were a good fan, I would say no with the proof in the pudding. Now if you really want to come by for the seattle game to hear that, go for it. If I say it here, I will say it to you. Without violence involved, why would I not back up what I (and many here) believe you to be a bad fan? Save the trip. Hopefully you are a Broncos fan and made a huge mistake trying to be correct by having the Broncos suck. You just dont want to bring opposing fans to OM weekends like a guy many of us know named broncofan2438. He actually threw out his Broncos gear.
