In a bit of a departure for The Healthy Food Review, today we're looking at the super low calorie, low carb light beer MGD 64 from Miller. I am going to assume everyone reading this review is at least of drinking age. If not, please have a responsible adult in your household read it instead.
Now I will tell you straight up that I'm not a beer drinker, but many of my health-conscious readers are and are probably intrigued by this MGD 64 light beer offering, just like one of my health-minded friends was. So this healthy food review will be based on his feedback on MGD 64 and written in my inimitable style :)
My fit friend, who does not in any way have a beer belly, is somewhat of a light beer connoisseur, varying what he drinks depending upon his mood, accompanying meal (if applicable) and time of year. He generally favors Michelob Ultra, Bud Light, Corona Light, Bud Light Lime (although despite what the new commercial says, he believes it's a Summer beer) and used to drink MGD Light.
My friend really wanted to like MGD 64, which he figured could be pretty interesting with about one-third less calories than the 95 in Michelob Ultra, and you could almost have two MGD 64 beers for each Bud Light at 110 calories. Unfortunately, in his opinion, it was not to be. My friend did not find MGD 64 to his taste. I asked him to please describe MGD 64 in terms I could understand for this blog post, but basically he just didn't care for the taste and repeatedly mentioned he felt "something was missing". That "you can't take that much out of a beer I guess and still keep the taste".
Naively I asked if he could add a Splenda or two to it (hey it works when my iced tea is off in taste)? At least I got a laugh.
Now you may absolutely love MGD 64, and this is only one person's opinion. But my friend basically felt the commercial (which I enjoy too), and is on constantly during Sunday football, is better than the beer. For those of you who haven't seen it, a guy and girl go up to a bar, and the girl only gets about two-thirds of her glass filled because she orders a different light beer than MGD 64.
I give Miller kudos for trying to provide a product for people who love beer, but want to not look like they do. Decide for yourself at http://www.mgd64.com.
