By macro, I mean a beer brewed by AB/InBev, SABMiller or MolsonCoors.

My vote goes to Hoegaarden. 94 overall, 99 for the style, affordable and available year round, around the world.

Your choice?

Good choice. Yuengling Porter?

I remember the days when Hoegaarden wasn’t owned by INBEV and was much better. Or maybe my palate changed. Either way, I loved Hoegaarden back then. It’s still decent but not as good.

Lion Stout or some of the FES versions are solid, certainly among the best regularly-available macrobrews.

I’d go with Schlitz Gusto or Olympia 95% Malt from the US. Imported...let me think on that.
