Derigiberble: InBev has been systematically changing their hops to less expensive varieties.  Perhaps that could be the reason for a taste shift which some people perceive as being more watery?

If you had the palate to detect a shift in the taste of Budweiser, wouldn't you be drinking something else?

Enigmamf: I pointed out on a thread on Reddit that Budweiser, at 5%, has more alcohol than the top selling beers in England (Carling, 4.1%) and Australia (VB, 4.6% IIRC). Even Bud Light at 4.2% is stronger than England's top selling.

Higher alcohol content does not equal superior product.

r1niceboy: At Thunderhead brewery in Kearney, nebraska, they used to have a Russian barman. When anyone would ask him if they had Bud light, he'd dip a glass into the rinse water, and give them that. The man was a hero.

A man enters an establishment that sells a product, and orders a brand of that product, the largest selling band of that product in the country and the worker tries to humiliate that man, and that's the actions of a hero?

Here's a link to a pic of the taps at Thunderhead.

Notice the tap 7th from the right? Yeah, that's Coors Light. Either your story is, shall we say, an embellishment, or the bar man is an ass.

downstairs: TFA: When told that a lab commission by NPR had tested several Budweiser samples and found them to match their labeled alcohol content, Boxer dismissed our test results, confident that when he gets his hands on Anheuser-Busch's internal testing, he'll still have a strong case.

Wait.  So he's going to dismiss a third-party result, confident that internal testing by the company he's suing is going to be MORE accurate?  Grasping at straws, there...

I refuse to believe anything from NPR, as it is an ultraliberal Marxist propaganda machine, which gets 110% of its funding from taxes stolen from job creators.  (They embezzle the extra 10% for limousines, Iranian caviar, and speech lessons for Diane Rehm.)

No doubt they are trying to undermine confidence in American beers, like Budweiser, in favor of froo-froo homosexual foreign beers like Stella Artois (from Belgium), Löwenbräu (from Germany), or Corona (from Mexico).  They probably used science, which has a known liberal bias.  I sure hope Fox and Friends does their own testing, with science-free methodology, so we know it can be trusted.

I thought it was 6%? In any case while Budweiser may lack flavor, it definitely gets the job done for people looking to get drunk.
