Nothing Butt Reviews: Bud Light Seltzer Lemonade
I was perusing the liquor store on Friday afternoon, looking for some weekend beverages and decided to grab a case of the new Bud Light Seltzer Lemonades. Full disclosure, my favorite Seltzer’s are the Lemonade flavored ones. Let’s just say I drank my fair share of the Truly Seltzer Lemonades this past summer. My favorite flavor of those is the Mango Lemonade.
So last night I gave the Bud Light Seltzer Lemonades a try. They come in a variety pack with four different flavors: Original, Black Cherry, Strawberry and Peach. I’m going to rank, review and grade all four flavors and then I’ll give you an overall grade:
Strawberry - Great flavor, strawberry really pops! Refreshing as fuck. Give me a 12 pack of these on a hot summer’s day while I’m out skimming the pool and I’ll be in heaven. On a scale of 1-10, I give this a hard 9.
Original - Solid lemon flavor. It’s basically a bubbly lemonade, you’d never even know there was alcohol in it, goes down like Minute Maid. Really can’t go wrong with a classic lemonade seltzer. This is a solid 8.
Peach - Pleasantly surprised with this one. Peach isn’t usually my cup of tea but the peach flavor wasn’t overwhelming and I actually enjoyed it. Give it a 7.
Black Cherry - It seems like every brand of seltzer has black cherry and I’m just not a huge fan. I gave this one a chance because it included Lemonade and it still missed the mark. The black cherry flavor overpowered the lemonade flavor. It wasn’t terrible but I can’t give it anything higher than a 5.
Overall, very good seltzer’s. The strawberry and original were outstanding and will be something I buy again and frequently. These are going to be awesome this summer, drinking them by the pool, on the beach or around the fire pit at night. Based on all the flavors I think I’d still give a slight edge to the Truly Seltzer Lemonades, the Truly Mango Lemonade is an absolute 10 and that alone pushes Truly past Bud Light but the Bud Light Seltzer Lemonades can hold their own. Let me also add that I was much more impressed with these than I was with the regular Bud Light Seltzer’s. I guess I’m just a lemonade guy and these hit the spot.
Bud Light Seltzer Lemonades get 8 bombs!
