MrBallou: Lots of Bud Light hate in this thread, but the article is about their cocktail thingies.

Real Margaritas taste like rancid devil urine, so how much worse could these be?


You shut your whore mouth. Margaritas are made from that sweet angel tequila. And when made from fresh squeezed limes... Delicious.

Also, Michelob is a good beer, even though it's almost extinct.

Beer snob thread?  Beer snob thread!

Well... my girlfriend's the beer snob, anyway.  I'll cook with beer, but I'm not particularly fond of drinking it by itself.  Would rather have a cider.

/Current favorite is Fox Barrel

I am really really surprised you cant get that  when we are fully stocked with that yummy beer here in socialist canuckistan where we have a hard time getting great imported beer (especially the US variety).

I actually had my Bud rep in today trying to sell me on this crap.  I will, with deep regret, stock that crap because people in general are stupid and they will buy it.  Thank god my town has a beer culture and I do get to talk to real live beer geeks every know and again,

Budweiser, which spends almost 1/2 a billion dollars per year in marketing has had nothing but a string of new product failures since the introduction of Bud Light in 1982.   This will be just be the next one.

Back in the day it was wine coolers..Bartles and James and California coolers, then it was the Red beers like Red dog and such, then it was the Dry Beers like Michelob Dry and then.. the Ice beers and after that it was the flavored beers... Cherry Wheat etc.  Next seems to be beer for breakfast with orange juice Beer..Mimosa!!.... Lets drink 24-7  whoot!


I'm not unfamiliar with 'beermosas', though I wish I were.

I've never had one but they've been consumed in my presence and I'm not quite sure how I feel about that. *shudder*

I always found it odd that people like to joke about fat people ordering 2 big macs, large fries, and a diet coke, but they'll drink crappy tasteless light (diet) beer and think it's cool.

/fat, drinks diet if I drink a soft drink (rarely)

I'm glad someone else noticed this.

I used to be a salesman for an A-B distributor. They introduce a product that doesn't make sense in the long term, then they blame sales staff when it fails in the short term. Then they'll buy a brand (Bass, Goose Island), let it wither while hyping Stella and Bud Light. Then A-B wonders aloud why their sales numbers are slipping and blame the sales staff.

No. Dow is absofarkinglutely correct. Beer threads are like food threads, hot sauce threads, car threads etc. If it's domestic, it's shiat in the eyes of most farking farkers. If a blind taste test were done with dog piss vs Doghead most of the idiots here on fark couldn't tell the farking difference. YOu just try to sound cool and shiat but actually, you just look like a farking dipshiat.

bud light is what i drink when i'm out at a concert, want a beer, don't want to spend much money, don't want to risk getting drunk (i would get sick from simply consuming too much carbonated liquid long before bud light ever got me drunk). it tastes ok, and being a light american "lager", it's actually refreshing like a soda when it's cold.

when LIME-A-RITA first came out, i would buy a large can at the exxon on my way home and drink it over the course of a couple of hours. i LOVE margeritas, and that was a reasonable substitute for about $3. but then one night i bought one and got about 1/2 thru the can and had to stop. i suddenly didn't like them anymore.

had a straw-ber-rita or 2 at a friend's house one night. not bad. won't go buying them though.

the bestest compliment I ever heard for bud was from a brewer
he said that the ability to make the same product every single time in massive quantities was pretty special
you can add..it tastes like shiat..but his point is still
valid

See, it seems to me that orange juice would not be a good idea. Frozen lemonade made with crappy light beer instead of water is pretty good, though, because it mostly tastes like lemonade, it's cold, and you can drink it in the summer when it's hot out without getting stupid like you would if you were drinking frozen margaritas all day. I always heard that called a shandy, although that might just be a regional thing.

They actually aren't bad.



I really hate to say it, but you're right (at least the standard margarita ones).  Someone left a few at my house and I was surprised as I don't like sugary/syrupy alcoholic drinks.  Usually its beer or straight unmixed liquor for me, but top one off with a little tequila and it's a pretty passable margarita.

I always wondered why Zima got such a bad rep too.

It seems standard for large corporations. They spend years figuring out just how many corners they can cut with their products, then are surprised when a start up  gets popular. Then they either buy the start up, or make a crappy copycat and market the hell out of it.

I've always wondered if they might come out ahead simply by making a good quality product at a fair price, and stopped spending so much on marketing and gimmicks. But I don't have an MBA, so what the hell do I know?
