What's the point? Might as well drink water! Reminds me of the Amstel Light commercials "We're sorry, we didn't know light beer was supposed to suck!"

Not everyone wants to feel like they are drinking down a four course meal every time they have a beer. During the hot summer months after working in 100 degree heat for hours on end a Bud, Bud light and Coors light is very refreshing. Now during the fall/winter give me my black and tans.

I don't get your point. This beer is 6% alcohol. Why would you compare that to water?
There's nothing sucky about it.

If I drink two 6% beers I'm not even sure if I should be driving, how is that water?

If you mean from a flavor standpoint everyone has different tastes and I certainly respect anyone else's choice for beer, but I'm with bulldog sometimes something lighter works better.

I am not a Beer conniseur but I prefer Bud Ice.

Can't stand Bud Light but I would love to get my buzz on for half the calories so I'll give the new concoction a try.

Facepalm...


So many other lagers (and other beers) out there to quench your thirst and aren't made from corn and rice. 6% is not a high ABV %. Don't be brainwashed by marketing. Still... drink what you like but don't scoff at other flavorful alternatives out there because they're not made by bud miller or coors.

I thought this thread was about 'Budweiser' offering a lighter alternative.

I think many, including those that responded to this thread, are well aware of 'other' lagers/beers.

By now we should all be familiar with the German, Irish, Australian, United Kingdoms, Canadian, S. African, and even the Carribean Island beers that are available.
