    You have to protect your proprietary flavor removal process, or you lose your rights to it. You don't have to be a lawyer to know this.

    I love all kinds of beers ... except sours ... my current favorite may be Sierra Nevada Hazy Little Thing. I do love hoppy IPAs. Kinda tough sometimes to decide between an IPA and a Stout (I'm thinking Founder's Breakfast Stout here ... not Guinness which is hardly a stout at all).

    But I also drink a lot of the yellow mega beers. They are good for being able to have several over the course of a day and not get wiped out. Plus they are usually what is provided in kegs at various events. They are not that bad if served icy cold ... and I'm really thirsty. :lol:

    Probably not good for you, but Great Lakes' Edmund Fitzgerald (American porter) is like drinking ice cream.

    I have. However , the flavor notes of cat urine and pine needles are not my jam.

    Imagine being a lover of good beer these days and not liking over-hopped anything and/or IPA’s.

    Doesn’t leave much...:lol:

    Let's think about this, esp. you home brewers. How would you brew a beer that's around 4.5% ethanol with less than 100 calories? That's the trick. Probably has to do with the yeast, but likely, too, in the way the malt (and adjuncts) is malted and mashed... possibly in the enzymes used in mashing. The starch reduction would have to be more complete, producing a higher alcohol beer, then watered down to get to the normal alcohol level, thereby reducing flavor and calories.

    And BTW, Miller produced the first Lite beer, not AB. Why would they need AB's recipe? Personally, if I'm going to have to choose between corn or rice, I'd choose corn. And if I'm going to drink a beer under 100 calories, I prefer Coors (or Keystone) Light for the flavor. IMO, much of light beer sales revolves around image and price, not flavor.

    You know what else has lots more flavor, lower gravity, and roughly the same calorie content? Guinness Draught. Seriously.

    Hence my love of the hazy New England IPAs. Lots of complex flavor without the bitterness and resin of so many American or West Coast style IPAs.

    How ironic that Anheuser-Busch would sue another company over stealing their formula when their very product was essentially stolen by 1 man from Czechoslovakia many moons ago and brought to America .

    Oh. I assumed you hadn't actually tasted it. Weird...

    Same reason McDonalds is the highest grossing burger joint. Or why Doritos are Doritos.

    Or... one could simply drink less, better tasting beer in order to reduce calorie intake. :)

    Interesting, too, that Budweiser is the "King of Beers," and Budvar Czech beer is the "Beer of Kings."

    No contest - but substantially more cost, so less profitable.

    PS - you are right, its worth driving out of the way to get Guinness Draught, although I'm gonna be tempted to just grab the Stout..

    All that tells me is that they should have stolen their Marketing Firm/Department, not their formula.

    I'm speaking from the consumer's perspective. I don't remotely care about AB-InBev or MillerCoors' profitability.:cool:
