Default Bud Light Lime

Okay, I'm embarrassed. I actually like this beer. Plus, I brewed today so I'm kind of tuned up as well. It's cheap, it's not filling, and I can drink it all day at my block party. I don't pick up cases of it regularly, but I do get it when I'm having company or when having a block party. I've been so ANTI-BMC for years, but this one brew is finding its way into my fridge more often when I'm low and need to just hang out all day. It's not a replacement for my homebrew or my favorite crafts, but it's a sweet, cheap, quick buy when company is coming in the summer. It'll NEVER beat a good Dopplebock or Belgian, but does ANYBODY else here like this too?

I don't like it, but I see no reason that you shouldn't.

If gnome doesn't like it, then I do

I'll drink Bud Light 'till the cows come home, but don't ever buy BLL. No reason, really.

I swear it's good. I HATE giving away homebrews in bulk because most people don't appreciate the time and effort that goes into making it. I gladly share BLL though.

Can't stand it but I'm not going to formulate my opinion of you as a person for liking it.

Someone in our group brought a 17 pack or whatever they come in camping last weekend. I was all WTF?! Then I had one. As long as you approach it like a Garden Burger (its not a replacement), they are pretty tasty. Very nice when its hot.
Cover it up and tell yourself its a Sprite with booze in it.

Bud light lime saved my life at panama city spring break this year. 5 days of binge drinking with my friends some of which are still in college. Not exactly the setting to buy craft beer. Everyone was buying cases of keystone and Busch. I convinced some of the guys to spend an extra $2 a case and just get bud light lime. Needless to say i've yet to have any bmc since then.

People have been drinking lager and lime in Britain (A dash of lime cordial) for the last 357,573 years. Those people come in two categories.
A) Folk who don't really like beer
B) Womenz

I had one a few months ago and it was like a lime soda. Not too bad IMO.
I haven't gone to the extreme of buying one yet, but one of these days I may.

Now I do like all BMC type beers as much as I like my own brew, well except for a PU clone I'm finishing off and the SNPA clone I will replace it with.
