Almost, but not quite, entirely unlike beer

I had seen some stories about Michelob Ultra. It's a beer primarily being marketed toward people on Atkins, since it has only 2.9 grams of carbohydrate (and 95 calories) per 12-oz. serving.

It was nice to drink something that wasn't water, but I think I would have enjoyed a twist of lemon more. It was like the cheap beers of my undergraduate days, and less.

This is one place where we differ. I'd rather drink water or lemonade than these "lite" or "almost" beers. I think it's far better to eat or drink a sensible portion of what you like than to fill up on 3rd rate stuff.

Then I think we agree...

I was saying I would rather have had a twist of lemon than this particular creation.

I thought you meant in the "beer." My apologies . . .

Life's too short to drink bad beer.

Whatever happened with the Atkins diet. I have a 400 foot climb in my regular 4 mile running loop that feels like 1600 feet whenever I try the Atkins diet for a couple of days.
