Inspired by consumer interest in a more flavorful light beer and the growing popularity of wheat beers, Anheuser-Busch introduces Bud Light Golden Wheat, an unfiltered wheat brewed with citrus, a hint of coriander and the superior drinkability of Bud Light.
From the bottle, this beer rates in at 4.1% Alc/Vol and packs 118 calories per 12 oz bottle. I’m not drinking beer to lose weight so I really don’t care much about calories in comparison to other brands.
This beer gives off the general wheat beer cloudy appearance. The bottle reads that the beer is unfiltered and will settle. I can only assume that this means the beer is somewhat bottle conditioned.
I took a few swigs of this beer and tried to determine if I could taste the coriander. I must say, I couldn’t. Most likely not because it isn’t in the beer, but because I have no idea what it tastes like. I could, however, taste the hintÂ of citrus. I could also taste the traditional American Wheat Flavor.
Overall, I would give this beer a very drinkable rating in the “session beer drinking” category. Go pick up a six pack of Bud Light Golden Wheat today and let me know what you think.
