Bud Light Golden Wheat
Has a sweetness that reminds me of one of those honey, nutty brown ales or maybe a hefeweizen. Brewed with citrus peels and coriander, according to the bottle. One of the best of the Bud Light brews, in my opinion. Doesn’t have that overpowering carbonation common to so many light beers, so you can enjoy a few of these without that bloated feeling in the stomach. Though I’m not a big fan of the Budweiser brews, this is a sign that maybe they’re trying to put out some decent beers.
I couldn’t believe my luck when I discovered this beer in a local store. I’m a big Monty Python fan, especially the movie from which this beer is based, Monty Python and the Holy Grail. And though you might think this is just a novelty brew, it’s actually a pretty decent drink. Tastes like a brown ale, though it takes a few swallows before it begins to get sweet. Has the perfect amount of carbonation. This is a fine brew for taking to parties because it’s something different without being too outlandish for your typical Budweiser and Miller drinkers. Comes to us from the fine folks at Black Sheep Brewery in North Yorkshire in Great Britain, of course.
