That goes to show: if it tastes watered down, it most likely is watered down.

Most American beer is like having sex in a sail boat. It's fucking close to water.

Budwiser has tasted like watered down piss since way before 2008.

Agreed. But InBev really shouldn't ruin Negra Modelo too.

When my girl hands me a Bud Light... I go drink it over the toilet because I know in couple of minutes it's going to come right back out! I like Blue Moon and beers like it!

If by "most American beer" you mean the majority of cans of beer drank every day, then yes. If you mean companies that produce extremely watered down beer, then no. There are tons of small breweries that produce any kind of beer you can think of, that are completely outweighed by a few giants that produce piss-beer.

Watering down? It's mostly water. So are they reducing the alcohol content? If you don't want filth, quit drinking filth.

Budweiser is not American beer. It's Belgian.

You see, Budweiser is Belgium's criticism of America. :D

It was piss long before the Belgians bought the brand.

This is true. However, it's even more pissy now.

unless it has lower alcohol than what it says on the label, or has no alcohol at all, i don't know how these guys expect to win.

this is probably the next in line after that taco bell lawsuit where the douchebags realized their definition of beef isn't the same definition used by anyone else.

St Bernardus Abt 12 is a top notch Belgian abbey ale. Just for the record.

I do enjoy an excellent Victory Hop Devil once in a while, St Bernardus Abt 12 is one fine beer among many Belgian breweries.
