If you listened to this week's podcast, you heard me say at the end that I'm going to my girlfriend's river house this weekend. (It's actually on the Chesapeake Bay, but her she calls it a river house).
So since I am spending my weekend hanging out by the water, I decided to do a beer review of the perfect summer beverage.
Bud Light Lime is the ultimate summer beer and nobody can tell me any different. The first time I had it was actually last summer at her river house, and it's been my go-to drink for summer activities ever since.
It's the perfect amount of refreshing and crisp beer, with enough citrus to make you feel like you're on a tropical vacation wherever you are.
When I went to Smith Mountain Lake late last summer with a couple of friends, I convinced them to try it. They were skeptical at first, but they liked it so much that we had to buy another 12 pack before the weekend was over.
I tried to convince my mom to get one at a Nationals game last summer, but you know how ballpark prices are. It was $15 for a can, and as much as I love this beer, I can't justify those prices.
My friends judged me a little bit when I told them how good this beer is, and they said my dad would be disappointed in me for drinking it. (He is kind of a beer purist and not a fan of mass-produced beers, but even he can enjoy a citrus-flavored beer every now and then.) I have had some beers that I'm somewhat ashamed of (see Naturdays), but Bud Light Lime is not one of them.
As with all the beer reviews I do, the ultimate test is whether or not you can drink it at a ballgame. The answer is 100 percent yes, as long as you're willing to shell out 15 bucks.
I hope you all enjoy your weekends as much as I will, and pick up some Bud Light Lime next time you need a relaxing getaway.
