Let's all step back from our beer snobery here and realize this beer for what it is - it's Bud Light, for pete's sake.

Of course it cannot compete with a myriad of brews that we all enjoy. But it is a staple session beer, and it does just fine. If I have indulged a bit too quickly in some craft imperial porter or double IPA, switching lanes and grabbing myself a bud light isn't such a bad idea.

This isn't meant to be a craft beer or anything special, and lord knows it is not. But it is what it is - I enjoy and appreciate it for being a fallback when the craft and micros get a wee bit too heavy.

In fact, I'm drinking one right now after indulging in Upland's Infinite Wisdom Tripel....
