Dude, drink what you like. I used the word artificial, because, while I'm no nutritional chemist, THEIR OWN SITE specifies "no calories, carbs, or sugars" in their product. That would at very least limit the "malt" components to something umm....non-malty. Free country. I do maintain that good beer (not great) is more accessible now than at any time ever. Obviously a BMC wedding reception would be a different story.+1. $$ spent on crap artificial flavorings could be spent on good beer in the first place. Good beer is everywhere ! Lipstick on a pig.I like the idea- for those times when good beer ain't available. Besides, what homebrewer hasn't tried adding hops or crystal malt to a Coors light?
...I wonder if I could make my own....
I have never tried adding hops or crystal malt to Coors light or any other macro beer. And what makes you think that using the extract could produce a "good beer""?
For the record, I said "good beer" not "great beer" and IME/IMO good beer is not everywhere. Last wedding i attended had only bud/ bud lite. And the website does not specify ingredients- artificial or otherwise.
I tried adding hops and xtal to a Coors light 19 years ago. Didn't work. But I believe it can work! And FTR I didn't buy the Coors light! Someone left it at my house! I swear!
Denny, I bet you dry-hopped with that "catnip" on your slick, new avatar!
