Beer - canned, bottled, or served in the skull of the enemy

Lately I've been drinking a lot of Lagunitas Pils. Decently priced for a 12pack and has the snappy lemongrass-y saaz hop bite that a Czech style Pils should.
Fair State also makes an excellent Pilsner.

So recently I had a brewery rep explain to me that they have trouble selling Americans on any beer variety that implies bitterness in the name (see: ESB). They've created an ESB but they label it as an ESP (extra special pale) for this reason. I kind of gave him a quizzical look and asked him what he thought about the extreme popularity of super-bitter IPAs (see: Surly Furious), and he just sort of shrugged.

I'm saying this here because I don't know where else this would go.
I was cleaning out my fridge and I found a can of my favorite brand (I switched to straight drinking rum some time ago) that I somehow missed and I'm so fucking happy? I actually gasped. This last can of Voodoo Ranger - Juicy Haze made my fucking day (night?).

What did they do? Did they piss in the beer or something?

I don't really clearly remember. Maybe something about labelling it as "from Japan" but not clarifying "the recipe is from Japan but it's brewed in the USA'" or something similarly stupid and nitpicky.
I remember it wasn't yucky like bugs or jizz.

Did they call it beer while using corn and rice?

Firstly, if it's not on tap my preference is bottled to cans. My go to is Stella, though I will have a Guiness on occasion. I'll drink whatever Sam Adams is on offer and I'm quite partial to a Shock Top with the optional orange wedge.

If you can suggest a cheaper alternative that's the same type (I know fuck all about the categories of beer), I will try it.
The same typ isnt so easy. its at the crossroad between northern and southern pils. try Becks or Grolsch for the more northern route or Krombacher for the more southern route
