Dos eck-aze (phonetic for XX) Amber and Corona Extra give me a light buzz mid way into one bottle that I don't get from domestics. On the other side of the coin, Dos XX's Lager seems like watered down lite, major difference from their amber. Enjoying a Warsteiner Dunkel at the moment, before supper.

No, but the Oktoberfest German beers usually do. Paulaner was 7%, my current choice, Haufbrau, is 6.3%.

Dos Equis Amber has 4.7% alcohol. Dos Equis Lager has 4.3%. Corona Extra has 4.6%. They're all pretty light, IMO. You want something stronger, try some IPA or some german doppelbock like Spaten Optimator.

Many Belgian triples and quadruples come in at or over 13%, give or take. Beer of my ancestors smile

It has been a while Dogfish World Wide Stout one of the best pushes 18% + given the year and I think I was paying near $10.00 12oz bottle god I loved that beer.

Only if you're doing it wrong...
This. If all experience you've had with beer is bud/miller/coors/other [censored] flavored water, then yes. For anyone who actually drinks good beer, then no.

Southern Tier is quite good, I have to tour the brewery soon since it's in my neck of the woods. Personally, I'm a big Sierra Nevada fan of all offerings...

There's a good chance you just didn't eat before drinking or may have been overtired, but as stated here those beers are all average or below average ABV... On a side note, my new favorite Mexican beer is Pacifico, it's like Corona but with flavor... smile

obviously not a fan. Only some beers fit that description. Heineken reminds me of Wheaties grin2
