Woah woah woah. It may not be the best beer on the market but it is far from horrible. Bud light is one of the most putrid tasting things on the planet and the fact that people drink it like water drives me nuts. It tastes like garbage and the commercials haven't been good for at least 5 years. Not that you said that like Bud Light but I felt that I needed to knock it down a peg.
