on a hot day of motorbike riding and bar-hopping, miller lite is a standard. i was in our favorite bar in new orleans in 2005, drinking a pint of lagniappe, and wouldn't you know it, some hot babe from miller came in and asked if we'd like to do a taste test. "whatever," i thought, "free beer!" in the end, compared to bud light, and not knowing which i was drinking, i did "prefer" the miller lite. hey, it's the old school light beer so give it up. chug-a-lug!
if this was any other beer, it would probably be a 3.8 or so, but this is a light beer and it's the best in the world. first of all, if you like the taste of light beer, you're kind of a douche. you drink it because it's hot and you're going to a party for six hours and you don't want to gain five pounds and get drunk. second, this beer has the low abv of other lights, but the flavor, palate, aroma and appearance are incomparable to other light beers. third, that it only has 14 more calories per bottle than bud light is a testament to the master brewers of boston beer. i'd give this a 5.0 if it didn't have over 9mg of carbs.
i want to like this beer, since i've lived in texas for six of the past ten years, and everybody and their dog seems to love it, but it just isn't that good. it's heavy and makes me want to take a nap. i want to have a beer or three and have fun, not zonk out.
was never a fan of this beer. not that i disliked it, but i'll go on and on about beers i like and every time i had a pint, i was left thinking fat tire was simply an average craft brew. then they put it in a can. if you know what i'm talking about, they had to make it a little sweeter to keep it properly carbonated and damned if it isn't the best beer you can get in a can in all of america. my girl doesn't like it because she says it gives me bad breath. that's a bummer because she never complains when i've been drinking beer.
one of the best beers in the world that you can get in your town. incredibly flavorful with a sweet, bubbly nose. the color is warm and the head is lighter than you'd think it would be. drink a bottle or two with dinner and you'd be happy, never hung over.
absolutely love this beer but must admit that it is a "comfort" beer, as it reminds me of nola, where i lived and first tasted it. in general, i like brown ales and the malts in turbodog really take it to another level. it is not as heavy as many would think, it's incredibly smpooth, and i've enjoyed the beer on many hot summer days. that turbodog is in the same category as newcastle should be ignored as this abita beer was made for the great food of the gulf coast, not bland brit meat and potatoes. lastly, it's relatively inexpensive for a craft brew and it's 5.6% abv. smile!
