When I was shopping at BJ's last night, scanning the beer aisle for a new case to buy, at the end of the row my eye was caught by the bright orange box of BL Golden Wheat. My NEW PRODUCT alarm instantly went off and I was no longer in control of my own actions. I hoisted the case up into my cart without thinking twice. Even though I hadn't tried this brew before, it was NEW and I HAD to try 24 bottles of it.
I cracked open a bottle tonight and I must say the folks at Anheuser Busch have done themselves proud with this one. It tastes very much like a Shock Top or a light tasty Hefeweizen. It's not as full as a normal wheat beer and tastes slightly watery but it's not a bad thing. The water lightens things up a bit and makes it very smooth to drink. I would actually have to say that BL GW may be better than Bud Light regular. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a nice wheat-based beer. Now the question is how long do we have to wait to see "Miller Lite Top Wheat Ale" reach the shelves.
