In the end, it all comes down to what you like. If you want a light beer that’s ice-cold and easy to chug, Miller High Life is a solid option. But if you’re looking for something more complex, consider trying one of the following craft beers.
If you’re looking for a beer with a little more flavor, try this malty porter from Lagunitas. It’s got a nice, light hop profile and will pair well with your favorite dinner dish.
This hefeweizen is part of the trio that made this year’s list, and it’s no surprise why. It has a tropical and floral aroma and balanced structure that’s easy to drink. Hefeweizens can sometimes get a bad rap for excessive banana and clove, but this brew skirts those flavors with just the right amount of acidity.
