Coors Heavy or just Curzz spoken like a cowboy
Miller just say High Life
Not too many people drink Amstel around here. :lol:

Bud Heavy is the only one that makes the most sense to me though because the other 2 heavy versions just aren't that widely available typically. You are quite the beer drinker if you drink the heavy stuff.

We do so Old Mil Heavy too.

I even think if you went into a bar around here and asked for a Bud they might ask if you want heavy or light. I don't drink the stuff so I can't say for sure.

Hide the label so you don't get too many preconceived notions getting in the way of a proper taste test

That reminds me that I have a bottle that I had forgotten about. Did anyone ever drink any of it?

Let me take a stab at that, base malt, a pinch of 10L, pinch of Saaz, SG 13.3P, FG 2.0P. I would not enjoy that.

Probably the same way you make a black IPA... only with less flavor and color. :lol:

I just had a BL Platinum, I poured it into a glass, amber in color, small head, aroma of Bud, the taste of Bud, but I must say for a 6% beer, that light in body, the alcohol I could not perceive.
