Why does AB say "dry hopped for a full bodied flavor..." in their tv commercial? What do they take us for?

Answer: the ordinary consumer watching TV commercials.

Remember, nobody ever went broke underestimating the taste and/or intelligence of the American people.

Its actually funny that Bud took all this long to make an ale. I believe what will happen from them doing this is that people will go out and try this, if they like it they may say to themselves..."Wow...this ale is good, maybe I should try other ales".

I believe this will back fire on Bud, they will sell it and make money but if this beer is ok and does have a taste that BMC drinkers like they may start to look into other ales out there which is great.

It's really not that bad. Give it a shot. I think that most of the people giving it such a bad rap are doing so out of a distaste for the brewer rather than the beer itself.

It might be a fairly decent beer, but in my opinion I can buy several other better beers for a buck or two more a six pack. I have absolutely no desire to try it.

I tried it, and it sucks.

They have a long way to go.

I think a lot of people that have come out bashing it would be singing its praises if it was poured out of a Russian River bottle
