During the discussions on Bud Lite a few people here said they don’t drink that beer because it is lousy. That got me to thinking to ask everybody what their preferred beer is for when they just want a lite beer which is not all that heavy. I prefer a beer like that on hot nights during the summer, and my wife and I have gotten Bud Lite at Costco for that time.
So, with that said, for those of you who don’t care for Bud Lite for taste reasons, what lighter beer do you recommend?
And, for the disclaimer, I recognize that there are many other beers which are way better than lite beers and I enjoy many of those too. I am not limiting myself to lite beer in any way. I am just asking what your preferred option is when you want to go lite.
Humble opinion: Lite beer is close to unleaded coffee. At 4% abv it is close to Okie beer which for many years was capped at 3.2%. Drink enough to be happy and your belly will hurt. If I hadda choose it would probably be the original, Miller lite.
Refresh coming in from outside? Water! Really hot I gas it up with CO2 and add a squirt of grape flavor from Aldi. Enhancers come in many flavors.
Now for real beer, Florida Man IPA is pretty good but I go with Sierra Nevada Big Little Thing IPA, 8.5, and 9% respectively. Almost always, daily limit is one.
As far as light beer goes Coors Light pretty much tastes like nothing, that would be my go to for a light beer. It’s pretty weak but that’s why I would choose it over a better beer, when I want a beer but not a buzz.
I don’t really care for beers, and I really don’t like the hoppy craft beers…I just don’t find bitterness appealing. But on a hot summer day, if I have a beer, I really Like Shiner Ruby Redbird. It has a hint of grapefruit and is really refreshing.
