Default Does it taste anything like Bud Light?

My sister-in-law and her kids were visiting this past weekend and my 14 year old nephew brought a friend.

I was working on cleaning some kegs and they of course saw the keezer and started asking me questions. I mentioned that, yes indeed, I do make my own beer and started telling them about all the chemistry involved and summarizing the steps in general. I was surprised at their curiosity not for the fact that I was making BEER or alcohol like I expected from a 14 year old, but their their intrigue into the brewstand, the valves, pumps, and the chemistry etc... The had genuine questions on how I get beer from a bucket full of grain.

So after all their questions, the friend of my nephew said..

"Does it taste anything like Bud Light?" and I politely replied... "No, not really, its different"

He concluded our conversation succinctly..

"Good", he said, "'Cause my dad let me taste it once and I almost threw up!"

Yes Bud light is elephant urine. Miller is drinkable, I am not an across the board BMC basher.

HI EVAN.

I got a chuckle from his comment, but was more impressed by their curiosity NOT for the fact that is was beer, but for how it was created.

I'm not really surprised. If they were 16 or 17, then I'd be surprised.

Lol it brings me back to my first beer when I had a sip of my dads - I nearly gagged. Now that im 32 I have rarely met a beer I didnt like. Except a local microbrew that has a Jalapano Ale - that I think is the only bottle of beer I have not completely finished. Yuk

Someone bought me a bud light last night, and not being a complete prick, I drank it to be nice.

First bud lite in ages. It actually tasted like a cross between corn and someone's unwashed feet.

I am particularly disturbed by the connection to the taste of unwashed feet.

Indulge in this often do you?

Is it that much less appealing than cleaned feet?

Or a Smirnoff Ice drinker. It could go either way.
