I took a chance last week and bought a sixer of Bud American Ale (I did the same when Miller came out with their Chill- Boy was that a mistake). You know what, I really liked it! It had just enough malt flavor w/ a hint of hops. I may add this as one of my uitility beers. and at 6 bucks a 6 pack, it's a pretty good bargain. Anyone else had the same experience?
