It's all depends on beer. I made the beer bread and even though I used the beer I like I did not like the taste of the bread, so next time I used much lighter beer. I suggest you do the same.

Beer Bread

Welcome to DC! Definitely a light beer, as Charlie suggested. Miller Light, Coors Light, other light will all work fine.

Beer Bread

Eh, doesn't have to be that light, just lighter than the one you used before. Important thing to use beer you like.

P. S. I just don't like those really, really light beers. They are tasteless.

I don't mean to sound snarky, but what did you expect it to taste like? I would expect beer bread to taste like beer. I don't like beer so I wouldn't even consider making this

Now, lemon-poppy seed bread - I'm there!

As Dawg and Charlie pointed out, a light beer will give you virtually no beer taste. However, the moisture and texture of the bread are great thanks to the yeast in the beer and the amount of liquid used (12 oz). I actually keep a six-pack of Beer-I-Would-Not-Drink on hand just for the purpose of making beer bread. I did use something strong-flavored the first time because we like beer that tastes like beer, not water. Lesson learned. Hence, the supply of dishwater beer.

I like beer and I like making dark rye bread with beer, but too strong of a beer taste gets even stronger in bread. That's where person has to be careful.
