    OK. So at first I thought this was the worst decision ever made by a beer brewer, creating a Lime flavored beer. Then I realized I don't really know that much about beer, other then I drink a lot of it. So my question is:

    Do you drink Bud Light Lime?
    If so, why?
    If so, do you actually like it?
    Are there worse beer ideas?

    :confused:

    There's a Bud Light lime?

    A travesty. They have completely tarnished the legendary name and history of "Bud Light" and the legacy that this iconic piece of American culture will carry into the future.

    Sarcasm overload! ...it made me laugh ;) Really why do companies do this? The only remake of a drink + chemical fruit flavour I have ever liked was Cherry Coke. Quite frankly everybody should have stopped there.

    At least Corona has the good sense not to go down this road, and everybody puts a lime wedge in that beer!

    I wanna say the other american brewing companies have all started marketing their "lime" beers recently. Think I've have seen a commercial for Miller Lite recently as well.

    All of them tagging the "refreshing" qualities to their new beer. Really quite sad since I dont know who they are marketing to. Bud Light drinkers are going to order a bud light, if they want a beer with a lime in it, they get a corona and do it themselves. I can appreciate the whole capitalist idea to try an syphon sales from a competitor who has success, but when drinking bud light, I dont think I ever wished it had a lime in it, nor do I remember any friends asking a bar tender for a lime wedge to give their bud light some tang.



    I dont drink much beer anymore, but, I went to college, and I still remember something about it(and that something is certainly not those early morning physics classes)

    In all fairness Miller Chill (Miller + Lime + A Hint of Salt) was out last year.

    Personally I don't drink such crap beer.

    The soda companies all did this crap some time ago, and it didn't work. I can't imagine it'd work with beer either. I mean, why change the taste of Bud Light? Clearly nobody drinks it for the taste now anyway. :)

    I hate Bud (and most american beers in general), but I'm guessing the metro-sexuals had something to do with this lime nonsense.

    Quite a few companies have started doing this, adding 'citrus' flavours to their concoctions – Fosters are another culprit who spring to mind.

    I suspect they're doing this to try and mask the frankly awful taste of their beer.

    My buddy picked up 2 six-packs 2 days ago, which is the first time we saw this in my area (Morgantown, WV). I hated Miller Chill...absolutely horrible. I must say that I will always take Yuengling or other better beers over Bud Light Lime, but it wasn't too bad. It's a beer that I'd want to drink ice cold on a nice summer day on the golf course or at a BBQ. Call me what you want, but it's not something you drink massive quantities of, more of a "chill out on a hot day beer."

    I remember drinking Tequiza back in 1999...somehow this fad has returned again.

    When I went on a tour of the Coor Plant there was one lady in the tour group that asked why Zima was discontinued (the original and one its flavors). I promptly answered (before the tour guide) because it was s*** beer.

    The tour group got a laugh out of it simply because it's true.

    I was at a restaurant once and on the menu was a "beer float" - which was exactly what it sounds like - beer and ice cream. Even the waitress said it was gross. Needless to say, I did not try it.

    The worst beer ideas I've ever tried were:

    Desperados: Tequila flavored beer

    Cannabia: Marijuana flavored beer

    I didn't realize regular Bud is supposed to be beer. Sure fooled me all these years. ;)
