It's no secret I love beers. And, I really love seasonal beers (See all the pumpkin beers I love). I apparently missed that Spring beer selection, but trust me, I've got summer covered.
Don't let the "Bud Light" part scare you. This is actually incredibly refreshing. The cans are a little small, but with 8% alcohol, who really cares? I don't really taste the beer part of it. Pro-Tip: Put it over ice. It tastes better. There's also a Strawberry version that is heavenly -- and I don't even like strawberries.
RATING: 10/10. Delicious, refreshing. Perfect for sitting on the patio during the summer.
Angry Orchard Apple Ginger Cider
So, this one isn't a beer, but it has alcohol. And, maybe you can tell by my face that I wasn't feeling this one. At all. I love Angry Orchard Cider (Or, as I call it, Angry Birds!). So, when I saw a variety pack, I immediately picked it up. I took one sip and thought, "What the hell is this?" It was terrible. Awful. So, I made my boyfriend finish it.
RATING: 0/10. Stick to the original.
Leinenkugel Summer Shandy
This is beer and lemonade mixed together. What could go wrong? Nothing. I absolutely adore this beer and I've grabbed a few six packs after work so far. I tried it last year for the first time and I was so excited for it to return to me this summer.
RATING: 10/10. Super refreshing.
Blue Moon Agave Nectar Ale
This was hyped up to me. I had a few different people tell me, "This is the best summer beer. You have to try it." I kept forgetting to grab a summer variety pack of Blue Moon from the store, but at a recent party, I saw a bottle and grabbed it. I was so excited and when I took that first sip, my first reaction was "Oh." It tastes just like any old boring beer. There is no sweetness like I anticipated. I couldn't even finish it.
: 1/10. Boring. Not worth the money.
I love trying new beers. What summer beers should I go out and get? Let me know in the comments.
