WTF?!: Coors Light To Sell Iced Tea Flavored Beer

coors-light-iced-t.jpg

Because drinking leads to poor decision making and the bigwigs at the Coors Brewing have obviously been swimming in the f***ing beer vats, the company has decided to introduce Coors Light Iced-T, a 4% alcohol tea-flavored beer aimed at people who don't like the taste of beer (children) and southerners. It goes on sale next month and clearance the month after.

Coors Light Iced T, Iced Tea-Flavored Beer [laughingsquid]

Thanks to brian, who doesn't drink tea flavored booze except for that sweet-tea vodka stuff they've got because man, that doesn't even need a mixer -- just a giant f***ing cup and some ice. I smell a BBQ!

    I heard it actually just tastes like Iced Tea, so it's a great idea. I could finally drink a lot of beer, even if it's pretty light.

  • Ron Dukarski

    I can't wait to get my hands on a CLIT.

  • Initials for Coors Light Iced T....C.L.I.T.

  • Not against the tea idea but 4% isn't even worth drinking. 

  • John Fenlon

    I guess anything they can do to make Coors Light not taste like liquid shit is an improvement.

  • Lars Söderberg

    I don't like the taste of beer. Makes me wanna puke tbh, so this might be something. I do however like other things with malt in it and I like alcohol, so it's bit weird.

  • n_a_a_s

    I almost misread that as coors selling ice-t flavored beer, that'd be gross

  • Twisted tea was already out on the market, and it's fucking delicious!

  • Guest

     The Twisted teas are indeed pretty awesome; so far my favorite is that raspberry flavored one.

    They say that the reason why brands like Coors sell so well in the first place is because people in general don't like the taste of beer... why they'd torture themselves to drink Bud, Miller, or Coors, though... beyond me.  Peer pressure really that strong?

  • John Fenlon

    Seriously, if one doesn't like the taste of beer, wtf are they doing drinking beer? There are literally hundreds of other beverage options.

    Americans, as a whole, have been preferring the Coors style of beer since the 1890's. It's sad, but it's true. It's what made Budweiser famous.

  • michaelwfisk

    That's what I'm getting at.  After all, the main flavor components of beer are malt and hops, and the American-style lagers are very deficient in both.  Therefore, a preference for that style could be interpreted as a preference against a beer that tastes strongly like beer.

    Watch the documentary "Beer Wars", it describes where the watered down taste comes from.  Its basically made to be "inoffensive" and cheap as hell.  Thank god for micro-brew. Plus, if they plan to make this taste like ice tea i'm guessing they will omit the hops, making this concoction a "malt beverage".

  • That is one way to make a cheerleader beer more... cheerleadery?
