Lord Chesterfield Ale, much better than plain Yuengling, imo. Although their B&T and porter (as mentioned by Ohiogirl) are also good. I just wish they were as cheap as they used to be, because lately these brews are only $1-$2 less than the more expensive stuff.

Bud Lite's ABV is 4.2%. Hardly double your Icehouse. You must be thinking of one of the low carb beers like Michelob Ultra or something. Why not get yourself a 40 of one of those 11% malt liquors? Go for broke...

Some times on a sweaty day a really frosty cold Miller High Life goes down great in about three swallows. 10 bucks a 12 pack. I don't actually think of it as beer, just fizzy water with a tiny bit of beer-like flavor.

Yuengling for me. I'd take Black and Tan over Lager, but Lager is a bit more readily available.

If we're talking ultra-cheap, you can't beat a 30-pack of Genny Cream Ale for $16. Better than the big 3 domestics in my opinion.

I'll add my vote for Yuengling, the Simpler Times beers, both lager and pilsner, sold at Trader Joe's for $3.99/6-pack aren't bad either.

Although I can't really stand any of the macro's.

When I find myself at a bar that only carries macros, I shoot for Corona (propelyne glycol infused) and or Leinekugel's Summer Shandy (Coors).

Yuengling definitely has the one up on the Bud, Coors or Miller for being a macro. I don't think they use any rice in their recipe, although I could be mistaken.
