    Craziest poll ever! What say ye, beer drinkers?

    This made me laugh out loud. Just ridiculous!

    Cast a wide enough net and you'll catch the lowest common denominators. None of my friends/peers locally drink much of anything that isn't macro light beer, so they obviously would tell you that it tastes good. It is refreshing to know that beer journalism flounders at the same embarrassing level as whiskey journalism.

    That was my first beer, ever.

    And I love Negra Modelo.

    Too true, my man. Too true!

    Ballantine must have been one of my very first beers too, right after my maiden voyage drinking Schlitz tall boy cans in the park and getting chased by the NYPD! (For what, I do not know.) And I dig the Negra Modelo too, but some of the others are pretty laughable.

    I don't know that I'd call it refreshing, but certainly unsurprising.

    It seems that the vast majority of people are so focused on absorbing marketing that they 1) are completely numb to how what they put in their body makes them feel and 2) aren't aware that their tasters are turned off.
