Ahhhhh... A question that has no answer outside of our own palates and liver capabilities. I've samples many many USA beers... Never had a bad one out of the lot. Most Canadian beers are a touch higher in Alchohol content. Some European beers, higher still.
Darker beers on tap is my Fav. Labatt products if bought by the case. WildCat is cheap, and frankly, I can't tell the diff between THAT, Blue, or even Molson's Canadian for that matter.
Dark beers. Traditional Ale, Calgary Alberta Brewed. Ricard's Red - Can't remember where it originated. And if you fancy the flavour of Engine oil mixed with the contents of an ashtray... the venerable GUINESS. Black beer that you can stand a drinking straw up in.
I'm under the impression that most US beers are around 3.5%... I cannot imagine what 'Lite' beer content is then.
Most Canadian Beer is brewed at 5% and light is around 4%... high test is 6+ %.
When I travel on the ol' Scoot... I pack a bottle of Jack. Makes breakdowns more tolerable... and less heavy than a 24. BTW. A case of beer north of the border is 24.
