Beer Review: Bud Light Golden Wheat

When Bud Light Golden Wheat first debuted in October, I was really excited! I love wheat beers, and I have no problems with drinking a light beer.
This beer was a little hard to find for the first month it was supposed to be available. I didn't end up spotting it until I went to Tom's Party Store in East Lansing, MI. Tom's is known for its great wine selection and formidable hard-to-find beer selection. A 6-pack of bottles of BL Golden Wheat will set you back about $8.75, about $2 more than traditional Bud Light.
My first sips were unfortunately disappointing. From the description on the bottle A wheat "Light beer brewed with coriander and citrus peels" I was expecting something like a lighter version of one of the Sam Adam's seasonal brews. What I got was an unfiltered bud light with a hint of citrus. The end result looks beautiful in a glass, I will give it that. But it has very little (if any) head and a bitter, sour flavor.
Since my original purchase, I have started to see BL Golden Wheat on tap at several bars and even some bowling alleys. If you're short on cash and don't want to spend big on a microbrew, this is a good option. But don't forget that it is Bud Light, and tastes a lot like other beers in the Bud Light family.
