They'd sell so much more beer and retain their integrity if they went back to the bikini clad women cat fighting in the water fountain.
They went from 'don't fruit your beer' to lime beer in less than a year.

That may be, but when there were bikini babes selling their beer instead of insults, I at least enjoyed their commercials.

Or spending their millions just to make sure that people know they aren't drinking water or soda. I always loved Bud's slogan of "Budweiser, this is beer." You don't see commercials stating, "Oscar Meyer, these are hot dogs."

EDIT: I found this linky with some slogan funz in it.

Stand back folks, I'm going to try Science!

According to my digital-multiscale-torque wrench/hopometer, it turns out Miller Light contains exactly 3 times as much hops as (and has 3 times the IBUs of) water.

So that's what they mean!

Well, I don't prefer Lite anything to real beer, but I must say that I would probably drink miller lite more now because it has 3X the hops. At least I know I'm getting my money's worth.

It's harder for *us* to brew them simply because of the additional requipment required (temperature control). In their commercials, AB seems to be attempting to convey the message that darker beers are all inferior. That certainly is not the case.

And as far as I've been able to tell, they haven't changed their recipe substantially. It seems much more likely that they simply add a tiny bit of hops in the last 15, 10, and 5 minutes of the boil. Hey, 3X hop additions! Woohoo, now we'll attract some IPA fans!

Misguided marketing at it's best.

yeah this commercial pisses me off wicked bad too. i figured there must be a thread about it, so im glad there is.

at least with Bud Light's "drinkability" campaign they more or less are admitting the stuff is similar to water making it easy to drink a lot of.

but dont BS me with saying Miller Lite has any sort of hop characteristics. (or that American Ale is "dry hopped for a full body") ,

makes me so angry i could punch a baby
