    well, not like shit, but a lot different then what i am used to. It tastes more like becks.

    Can this be because of the worldwide hops shortage or did i just get a bad batch?

    most likely a bad batch, the hop shortage is a problem, as well as high barley, wheat, and yeast costs. Overall the cost of brewing beer has increased a lot, but large breweries I'm sure will not sacrifice the quality of their product do to these issues

    Try drinking a real beer. Something you can't see through.

    a Guinness man ehh. I hate it. Having light in the name doesnt mean shit. Look at Corona Extra; it makes me wonder how they managed to concoct a light version of that. Amstel has a great flavor and i didnt even notice the apocalyptic "light" until i had been already hooked.

    Fuck off. The bottle is dark and i cant tell. If there was a regular amstel i would drink it. Up until this batch, it was one of my favorite beers. And if you are truly a real man that wants to drink a real, real beer, you should try bear beer. It is made from fermented bear piss and forest mushrooms.

    lol, went to my brother in laws place recently and asked if he had beer, he said there was some in the fridge. I go to grab one, only to find MICHELOB FUCKING ULTRA. WTF. He's like 6'2" and probably 230, definitely not counting his calories.

    rumor has it that beer can get skunked if it experiences some wild temp fluctuations (like gets warm then cold again). also it has a shelf life. i dunno what amstel light tastes like though, 'good' or 'bad' - hehe :)

    whats with all these people badmouthing my choice of beer? people have their opinions and i was merely wondering if the anyone had a change in the taste due to the hops shortage.

    I will have to disagree, but i sympathize with you; amstel would not be strong enough of a beer for me to be able to bang the type of women that you bring home either. :D:D

    The big guys got first crack at the hops - I dont think they're in trouble anyways because most large breweries get ultra-high percentage hop utilization. Also, it won't skunk if its made with hop extract. Any chemicals from hops that cause "skunk" (which is a light-sensitive process) aren't in the beer. Most of the large quantity brews of the world are made this way - BMC, etc.

    Drink what you like, do what you want. Anyone else can shove their ego-penis up their ass.

    I would drink whiskey everyday, but I can't afford the court fees.

    Well not really, I enjoy some Tullamoredew quite often. The only liquor I really don't drink willingly is rum. Just don't have a taste for it. But I'll drink anything else, vodka is and always will be the go to. And I still thank Hondaswap (I think B) about telling me about Hangar One. I still love banging shots of tequila. Jager is never bad (without red bull you pussies). Etc. etc.

    I drink beer most often though because of the variety I can enjoy. You want to try a good beer that's not too heavy? Michelob. Notice I didn't write Light after it. Michelob Lager is a great beer. It's Light version sucks terribly.

    And for whoever mentioned Corona. Did you know that a Corona has more calories than a Guiness? Guiness actually has only about 15 more calories per beer than Corona Light. Just one more reason why I can't understand why people drink that shit.

    Shiner Bock is the only dark beer I like, and as far as any that you can see through it would have to be Blue Moon with a slice of orange.
