I'm not sure how much 'difficulty' comes into it.

If there's a mass market used to a particular taste, that's a whole lot of inertia.
What's the incentive to do things differently for a commercial brewery which is selling large amounts of output?
I don't do sarcasm smileys, but someone as bright as you has probably figured that out already.

It's a cultural difference thing. I drink real ale, trappist beers and other quality beverages, because I like the taste.
People drink flavourless shite because they want to get legless for reasons that are lost on me.

I drank a Pabst Blue Ribbon the other day, first one I've had in probably 40 years. It's the new Hipster Beer of Choice, they being all over that working man shit with their PBR and Dickie shirts. Actually it wasn't that bad, just a basic American style light lager. Better than Bud. It would be fine on a hot day after mowing the lawn.

We get a few like Negra Modelo and DosXX Amber in the supermarkets, both are pretty good. The Mexican grocery has a bunch of beers I haven't tried yet. We're getting more Pacifico on tap around here, it's a light lager like Corona but stronger and hoppier.

I liked them in Mexico but I tend to be a dark beer drinker when I do drink beer these days :(

In the sauna I drink what we term Pilsener which is a heavy lager. Very refreshing and at 5% not tasteless.

Nah, the worst beers in the world are the ones with a bunch of formaldahyde in 'em. My preference for the light lagers is really Pacifico or Corona Familiar. Typically, though, I get IPA's of some kind. Sometimes stouts.

It's kinda funny to take her on her word. For there to be a toxic dose of sugar in the Starbucks we'd be talking kilos of pure glucose. How much does your coffee weigh?

Oh and it's also stupefying. She is actually talking about a beverage with an LD50 low enough and serving size high enough that people can and do die from it but all she says on it is it may hinder dieting?
Next time a creationist says, "Were you there to watch the big bang", say "Yes we are".

I'd never even heard of this chick until this thread. If she's worried about chemicals in her food then she should really just stop eating. That would solve her problem, and at least one of ours. :coffee:
