I hadn’t drank Budweiser or similar beers in many years so I was curious to see how it would compare to the stronger and frankly better beers I had become used to. Bud Light and Labatt’s 50 were on tap at the Irish Embassy, and I was very drunk when I tried them – in fact I don’t have a picture of Labatt’s 50 and I don’t want to have to go and buy one just to take a picture. Labatt’s Bleue and Budweiser were both tried at Sports Station and I was also quite drunk at that point. I believe from the picture that Rolling Rock was tried at Ye Olde Orchard on de la Montagne – just for the hell of it.
I don’t have too much to say about these ‘beers…’
No. 47 – Bud Light
Hmmm…Bud is light enough so why make it lighter? 3/11
No. 50 – Labatt’s 50
Like Harp or Carlsberg back home, it seems to be everywhere somehow. It’s fine, just a standard lager. 3.5/11
No. 120 – Rolling Rock
This is lemonade – I understand that it is an extra pale lager but it just tasted like lemonade. 2/11
Nos. 284 and 285 – Labatt’s Bleue and Budweiser
These were both cheap and were fine – what you would expect, Budweiser is a little lighter feeling with Labatt’s seeming closer to an actual beer but I could drink it again if it were cheap enough. These both get 3/11.
So that’s that. A few of the beers I tried just to fill out the numbers, I mean to compare different light beers. I don’t like being critical but there are so many better beers out there.
