Budweiser Extra

When time permits, I try to take Michele for coffee in the mornings after the kids are off to school. She likes 7-Eleven coffee, so that's where we go.

I've taken a break from caffeine for a bit and today I was wandering around while she made her coffee/hot chocolate concoction. Scanning the fridges, I saw this:

Yep, you read it right. Beer with caffeine, ginseng, guarana extract, and natural flavor.

Yes, Budweiser Extra has hit the market. Why? I have no idea, but someone at Anheuser-Busch thinks America needs caffienated beer.

Of course, you can count on the Cruft Labs to test this out for you.

I poured a tall glass of 'B to the E' and took a nice swig.

In a word, it is foul.

Truly a triumph of conceptual marketing over common sense. Bud Extra tastes something akin to beer with a Flintstone's vitamin ground up in it. An amazingly terrible taste that is nothing like beer.

Avoid this product at all costs, except if you want to play a practical joke on someone.
