Default So I tried to drink a Coors light today.

Admittedly I have never been a light beer drinker but how do they sell the stuff and how do do they legally call it beer?
I imagined the 10 gal recipie must be 1 lb of stale rice hulls and possibly some 2 row floor sweepings from the malting department.
I love my homebrew!

Try other lite beers. You may find the Coors is best of the group.

I actually enjoy the corny flavor from Miller products.

heh, I had one a few months ago and thought it was refreshing like lemonade...didn't seem like beer though. Just what your palate is accustomed to...

Edit: I remember thinking Dead Guy was a little on the bitter side, just had one on tap with dinner the other night, tasted like a normal Amber, no bitterness at all, must be all the DIPAs I've been into lately!

It's kinda like eating good steak for a month then having a spam sandwich. Both are definitely food, but one is better and beyond the other.

I drank Coors light for years before discovering/developing my taste for craft, but I'll still have one here and there, mainly because my local bars don't carry good beer and most of my friends drink cheap ****. When I do, I don't bitch about it too much. At least not out loud.

Miller Lite is good in Saki Bombs.
Bud Lite is the most drinkable of the 3 IMHO.

They are well made, just well made pieces of crap. I would love to work for them to learn how to brew though, they certainly have the technique down.

I was recently at a party where I brought some Golden Road, Mission Brewing, and Ninkasi stuff along with me... But I saw a Coors Light in the main cooler and something -- maybe it was the heat, maybe it was the sun -- just called out to me.

I drank that Coors Light and, to be perfectly honest, enjoyed it. It wasn't flavorful. But at the same time, it wasn't flawed. It was crisp, clean, and refreshing. There are a lot worse things I could have been drinking -- some of them which carry the "craft" moniker on them.

Am I going to rush out and buy a "cube" of Coors Light? Absolutely not. But at that time, and that place, it worked out really well.
