Bud Light vs. Natural light???
 
I've always wondered this, but what is the difference between BL and NL? they're both brewed by the same brewery (I believe) but there is a major difference in price why???????? and they taste very different....why?

Bud is the premium and thus the use of Clydesdale's, and NL is budget, so they just use old brood mares. :D

doesn't natural light have more alcohol, too? i know natty ice does.

I don't know much, but I do know this.

Best freinds brother is director of marketing for Bud at AB and the common knowledge around the brewery is that Natural Light is the best beer for the money coming out of Peskalosi Street (breweries address).

They even say that Nat Lite is the exact same ingredient/processing as bud light, just brewed under a different monichar to fill a lower income beer drinker...like me.

It would be too expensive to have an entirely seperate setup for a less expensive beer.

To this day, I'll fill my fridge with Natty over anything else on the shelves when forced to stock BMC.

I've always thought Natty was smoother than BL. When camping etc, I thought that it went down a helluva lot easier than BL even after it had warmed a bit. (Yeah sad to say, if given a choice I'd take a Natty over BL on a hot lawnmower day, if there wasn't a nice Hefe or Kolsch being provided mind you. ;) )

There is something different about them. Bud Light makes my stomach turn into goo the next morning. I never had the problem with Natty Light. My go to has always been PBR though.

I have always wondered about this too.

What about Busch Light?

Funny though, you go into a nice up-scale restaurant and order a BL and you are served promptly, order a NL and they will look at you funny. That's the difference.

True on the restaurant part.

As far as Busch Light? Both Busch and Busch Light have given me the most brutal of hangovers over the years. Dunno why...
