Even after reviewing Colorado's best brews, our beer reviewers sometimes just want a cold can without the hype. But which mass-market beer do we reach for? Everyone had an opinion about that and, being the journalist that I am, I had to question them: Do you really prefer Miller to Bud? Or Coors to Pabst Blue Ribbon?

So, we set up a blind tasting for 5280 editorial staff and put their tastebuds to the test. Bud Light won, but PBR was a close second. The one thing we agreed on? Coors Light didn't compare. To see what the reviewers said, hover over the image.
