What is a good alternative to Miller Lite?

Question by Joseph: What is a good alternative to Miller Lite?
My best friend’s favorite everyday brew is Miller Lite, canned, but I find it nearly undrinkable, probably because I don’t gulp it down. Bud or Bud Select is drinkable (if it’s free), but I don’t like Bud Light much either. I’m a lightweight, so a 12-pack of bottled Fosters at $ 14 is more than enough for me, but I want to try something new. I’m in Kentucky, if that matters.

Brews I do like, in order-
Newcastle Brown Ale
Dos Equis
Killian’s Irish Red
Honey Moon Summer Ale
Blue Moon
Sam Adams Boston Lager
Stella Artois (crisp, but not as impressive as I thought I would be)

Rolling Rock
Haha, Coca cola IS my alternative for now, but it’s too sweet.

I had a few Sam’s Summer Ales, and it was OK. My palate must not be very developed, because I could barely get a citrusy taste.

I’ll be sure to try the other ones mentioned.
Ambi, you’re right about my preference towards more expensive beers. That’s why I’m looking for an alternative at the price point of miller lite. :) Guess I’ll have to try Coors now. Should I be excited?
Forgot that I’ve had Sierra Nevada’s Porter and Pale Ale. Both were excellent, better than Newcastle.

Amstel Light and Fat Tire look interesting.

    No, no, no. More like warm HORSE piss.

    My people call Miller Lite……swill.

    Sounds to me that you’re looking for a lager, but seem to like dark ales and even stouts as your favorites, so I’m not sure what you’d like, to be honest.

    I don’t know if you have it down there, but I’d suggest Sam Seasonal (right now it should be Sam Summer Ale, which is a light ale with a slightly lemon-y taste)

    Alternatives to what you like ??
    Moosehead is similiar to Dos Equis (lager) and Leinenkugel’s Summer Wheat is similar to Blue Moon

    Miller Lite is a bit harsh, some might say a Michelob is a good substitute… I am strictly against Dos Equips, that is a terrible beer. Budweiser and their Lite was an alternative, but since is sold to a foreign country (Belgium) I am against that beer too… Most of the beer on your list are priced 2 and 3 bucks above other domestic variety, very good beers just pricey ~ how about Coors Lite?
