Miller Lite is considered by many to be the first light beer. This is when American beer went from being bad to being terrible. It has an alcohol content of 4.2%, which is only slightly higher than O’Douls or mountain spring water. I don’t like beer with low alcohol content. I drink to get drunk, not to take a piss every 15 minutes with a slight buzz.

There used to be a very simple test to determine one’s cheapness. If a person goes to a bar or restaurant and orders a Bud Light, they are cheap. Ordering a Bud Light is one step up from ordering an ice water, a bunch of lemons, and a shit ton of sugar packets to make your own lemonade. But now there is Bud Light Platinum, and as much as I love to bash Bud drinkers, this is the new light beer of choice. It has a hefty 6% alcohol content, and it still tastes like a light beer. Bottom line is that it is super drinkable and that alcohol percentage will sneak up on you. Anheuser-Busch finally realized that giving Bud Light a wheaty or lime flavor isn’t nearly as awesome as making a light beer that will fuck you up faster.
