(Newser) – Sometimes there's nothing better than a cold beer—and a cheap one at that. But according to Will Gordon at Deadspin—who ranked 36 cheap American beers "from worst to least-worst"—plenty of US brews are better poured down the drain than your actual throat. Where does your favorite beer rank?

  • Gordon's No. 1 choice? The "smooth, creamy, and dreamy" Grain Belt Premium, followed closely by Narragansett at No. 2.
  • Coors Light and Budweiser took Nos. 12 and 13, respectively, while Bud Light—which "tastes like printer paper," apparently—came in at No. 26.
  • Even worse, Bud Light Lime came in second to last, since it "tastes like green Froot Loops soaked in thigh sweat."
  • And, drumroll ... Keystone took the title of "the worst beer currently sold on American soil." It's "worse than Heineken and murder."
