when I play beer pong I can only use the finest Bud Light in a can. It has to have a specific born on date or I will toss it to the peasants in the audience.

With the exception of Guinness, Ice cold beer. Only drafts I usually drink are Black and Tans (or from my own kegerator).
I love microbrews and small batch beer, but I love Miller Lite on a typical day just hanging out. I never pour a bottle beer into a glass...it comes in a glass.
Thanks for the sig LCSF
I prefer Bud Light, but honestly I've never really given Miller Lite a chance. Back in high school, when my taste buds were still developing, I had my first taste of ML and I HATED it, mainly because I wasn't used to beer at that time. Since then, I've stayed away from Miller Lite. I feel like I kinda should try it out again, since that was then and this is now.
A rule of thumb for me is, I play beer pong with PBR but keep a good beer opened to sip on during the game....my local watering hole has a beer pong tournament on Saturday nights, and the special that night is $2 PBR tall boys and $2.75 microbrews...so they make it easy for me
I have to say that I think that Miller Lite has the best "flavor" out of the usual domestic light beers - I used to like Bud Light and Coors Light more but now they just seem like water - I can actually taste Miller Lite.
Although I usually prefer a good import or something like Sam Adams light - Miller Lite is good for gameday and what not.
Guiness, Smithwicks, Fischer, Sierra Nevada, Chimay, and Maredsous. My mouth is watering now.

Draft (I keep a keg tapped at all times )
Foreign & Domestic (as in craft brews..can't do Bud/Coors/Miller/Yuengling, etc)
Drinking temp depends on the beer.
I prefer stouts in the mid-40's.
I typically keep ales,(and the occasional lager), on tap and the beer temp at the faucet is exactly 38 degrees, which is how I like it for those styles.
For those cold winter nights I enjoy a good Barleywine. I take the bottle out of the fridge and let it sit on the counter for 15-20 minutes before I pour it in the glass.
Do I sound like a beer snob?
It's because I am.
That's because of the thin film of beer left on the mouth of the bottle during crowning (capping), process. It was exposed to air and trapped beneath the cap. The film is stale and has a noticeable off taste.
You can taste for yourself. Open a bottle of beer, and take a sip. Then do the same thing with another bottle of the same beer, but wipe off the mouth of the bottle, before you sip.
Using a glass also allows the beer to release more aroma and flavor. Truthfully, the best beer is fresh draft, as long as it's stored at the correct pressure and temperature and dipensed through clean lines.
You know what else? Cans are better than bottles for storing beer......
