Mich Ultra crowd

I am a full supporter of macro brew but Mich Ultra sucks to me.  Do I need to try it again?  So many friends seem to like it - I bought a sixer once and it had no taste to me.

And make no mistake, I can fully appreciate low-rent swill.  I down Coors original like water.

But Mich Ultra just seemed like a waste of time and taste buds.

Mich Ultra has no flavor by design, because it's "beer" for people that don't actually like beer.  It's low carb for the keto crowd.

It's for people that don't like drinking, but want to be drunk.

Man, how much Mic Ultra would it take to GET drunk?  I doubt I could do it.

ABV is 4.2% so the same as most other American light beers.  You can get drunk on those but you definitely have to work at it.

I will drink a bottle of wine tonight and not be a all drunk, though I would not drive.  The I often have something hard, like gin, over five hours, and with food.

I like to have an aperitif of maybe Kir or a Pastis, then a bottle of wine with dinner, and then a digestif of Cognac or Armagnac.

I got somewhat of a liking for calvados after a heavy meal.  Or marc (which is pronounced "mar").

The French don't like "h" or consonants at the end of sentences.

Do they "drop" the consonant, or do they re-jigger the sentence so there's no word at the end that has a terminal consonant?
I note that "r" is a consonant.  Does that one not count because it doesn't have a hard sound?
What's the rule on "s" at the end of a word?  Seems like those often/nearly always get dropped.

A consonant at the end is only pronounced if the next word in sentence starts with a vowel.

Boulevard is pronounced roughly "boo-luh-var", no "d" sound at the end.

"Marc" is pronounced "Mar".  Calvados oddly enough is pronounced as it sounds, maybe because Normans aren't quite French enough.  Sometimes they call it simply "calva".

We know two folks named Bernard and another Gerrard, and the d is not pronounced.
