Bud Light Golden What…Wheat?? True, Bud light introduced its second extension of the Bud Light brand. So, I went to the local Publix (grocery store) and picked up a six pack to give it a try. Mrs.SweetT was excited about trying this one because she is a big wheat beer fan. So, we opened it together and gazed deep into each others eyes and…wait! Sorry. The color is a cloudy orange, traditional for wheats. The aroma is actually pretty good, orangey with some spices. The taste is surprisingly not too bad either, slightly sweet and hints of the orange peel and coriander, but cannot seem to get by the light beer taste. To me it tastes likes a light beer with orange flavoring. The ABV is 4.1%. My wife did not like it , she prefers Paulaner.
I would give it a try and see what you think, for me I will finish the 6er and if it comes along again at a gathering I would not turn it down, but I think of a few other wheat beers that I would prefer over Bud Light Golden Wheat. Nice try Bud InBev! It’s probably best to leave craft beer to the craft brewers out there.
