Default Heresy!!!!

I got home last night and I was kind of thirsty. I went in the fridge, pulled out a Miller Lite and I drank it. And I LIKED IT. So I pulled out another one and I drank it, AND I LIKED IT, TOO.

There. It's out now. I've said it. Actually it's kind of a freeing experience.

Seriously, I've always liked Miller Lite. Somehow they really have managed to make a product that's exactly like the ads said all those years: tastes great, less filling. As much as I love my homebrew and also trying all different kinds of imports and micro-brews, I've gotta say that sometimes, for me at least, a Miller Lite is a refreshing, thirst quenching option that actually tastes good.

I think that maybe the key is in not trying to compare it directly to beers that are completely different products. I mean, you wouldn't compare a Bartles and James wine cooler to that $50 bottle of cabernet you've had sitting down in the cellar for 5 years, now would you? Yet both in their own ways can be good and very enjoyable to drink. But, they're apples and oranges. Likewise, a pint of guinness at your local pub, or a Dogfish 60 Minute IPA are simply completely different products than a Miller Lite is.

Now, I suppose you could try comparing the Lite to an imported Czech or German Pilsner. That might be more fair I think. Even then, who buys that stuff to guzzled after they come in the house from mowing the back 40 on a 90 degree day?

I can't do it. The only light beer I can drink is Sam Adams Light, but it really isn't a light. They just have no flavor. It's like drinking beer flavored water. If I'm in the mood for a light beer I ususally go for Budweiser or Molson Canadian.

I think I just vomited in my mouth a little...

Kidding, we all have our guilty pleasures. Mine is PBR. it makes me feel so hip and punk rock. (and at $2.99 a sixer you really can't go wrong)

Miller Lite, that I can't quite choke down. But I do like PBR, so I'll let it slide. But yeah, just as you said, it's a different kettle of fish. Sometimes I like something simple and cold.

No heresy. Personally, I'm usually hitting the Canadian lagers for lawnmower beers, but nothing wrong with Lite.

Now, if you said Mich Ultra........

Something about Miller High Life in the 24oz can is yummy sometimes. So is Icehouse actually.

Normally I'd prefer a hoppy IPA, but occasionally a 'Murrican Lager is good.
