Today, we’re back with a very special Friday Four Pack. While we’ve spent every prior Friday Four Pack dedicated to mediocre craft beer, my lousy cooking, and overpriced pizza, today is a very special day and we will be providing our tasting notes on four of the greatest beers of all time- Budweiser, Miller Lite, Busch Light, and Beer 30 Lite.
Anheuser-Busch- Budweiser (5% ABV American Lager)
Known as the “King of Beers”, the Diesel was first introduced in 1876 and continues to reign supreme today. Unlike other full flavored craft options, Budweiser is a medium-bodied, flavorful, crisp American-Style Lager. An icon of core American values like optimism and celebration, when I crack a cold Budweiser, I can’t help but reminisce of other great American innovations- snuggie for dogs, Crocs, and subprime mortgages.
Miller Lite- Miller Brewing Company (4.2% American Light Beer)
Milller Lite is the great tasting, less filling, beer that Wisconsin-ites have been guzzling in their deer stands since 1975. Miller Lite is the original light beer that packs a real beer taste because it’s never watered down. Perfect for when you need something cold and watery for a hot day in Antarctica, Miller Lite pours a cheerful gold color with a watery thin head and plenty of carbonation.
Anheuser-Busch- Busch Light (4.1% American Light Lager)
Busch Light. Busch Latte. Call it what you want, but there is no denying it is The Nectar of the Gods. Just when you didn’t think the Nectar of the Gods could get any better, A&B took it to the next level with Busch Latte, Busch Light Apple, and the 56 pack Buschel. I love drinking Busch Light after brushing my teeth with mint toothpaste.
Melanie Brewing Company- Beer 30 Light (4% ABV American Light Lager)
We saved the best for last- Beer 30 Light. In college, I drank this beer exclusively on price alone. In fact, back in the day, we called Beer 30 Light the “Millionaire Beer” because we would all pretend we were rich buying rounds of this for one another. I’m not sure why people are so hard on Beer 30 Light. At $10 for a 30 rack, what do you expect? Golden Ambrosia served in a chalice while angels whistle? After 7 or 8 of these, all of this beer’s flaws disappear and you are left basking in the purple glow of spent Beer 30 Light cans.
Just like that, another week in the books. We’re looking forward to a weekend packed full of beer produced in giant stainless steel vats, Pizza Hut Pizza, and Wrestlemania. Two lies and a truth there. What day is it again?
