On a recent business trip I was at dinner with some co-workers and the restaurant had a special on “Miller Genuine Draft (light) 64” (MGD-64). The price was right so I thought I’d check it out. Being a fan of Miller Lite (96 calories) I figured it would be pretty close in taste.
Amazingly, I think I like the MGD-64 better than Miller Lite! Now, it’s not something I would drink with a gourmet meal. I reserve the use of Chimay and the various Micro-Brews for those occasions. If you’re going to do it, you MUST do it right!
I just got wind from a co-worker that Budweiser has thrown down the gauntlet and just released Bud Select 55. Are we in store for the zero-calorie beer sometime in the next decade??
All I know is the “ultra-light” beers are a nice alternative to the Imports and Micro-Brews. I look forward to keeping a supply of these around for the upcoming football season!
