I've brewed american wheat beers with tropical hops, like citra, summit or something from NZ, and my BMC friends, or PMC in this case (Pacifico, Modelo, Corona), really liked them. Also wit biers and Hefe Weizens are pretty popular. Some of them actually liked my brown porters and APA's but most of them said they were too bitter.
Here in the Mid-West (USA) the BMC drinkers often consider Pacifico, Modelo and Corona to be too exotic. Your friends are a few steps closer to real beer than your average Bud-light drinker.
Hahaha I don't think there's much difference, maybe only in Corona, I think its terrible, I would rather have any BMC than Corona.
