Saturday's beer review: Mike's Hard Lemonade

mikelmnd

As one expects from its name, Mike's Hard Lemonade appears to be lemonade with 5.2% alcohol. Although the label declares it to be a "malt beverage", I could not discern any malt flavor at all. It has a nice lemony aroma and the sweetness is just right. Overall, it is a pretty good drink. Keep this one definitely out of reach of children.

The company has a website, but as is usually the case with most brewers' websites, I couldn't find any useful information in it.

Cheers!

I can't say I disagree. I'll check to see the consensus. Happy mother's day!

I ONLY drink Mike's. If you can't stand the taste of alcohol, Mike's is great because it just tastes like lemonade.

Haha! Very funny. I call them cheerleader beers, and it's the only sort of alcoholic beverage I can stand.

Only alcohol my mom will drink. She drinks one and claims to be really drunk... she's never been drunk in her life.

As a lemonaid it's not too bad. Bringing them to a party is a quick way to get made fun of unless you're 17 years old. It's alcohol for people who hate the taste of alcohol. Dispite the ad campaigns which market it to late 20s, early 30s party guys... it's a drink you buy for the family reunion BBQ so your middle aged aunts won't feel left out.

I like MIke's and all the various flavors but I tried the "Light"
only to find after I got it home that it contained some really nasty chemicals that are usually in diet soda, so I returned it.
I also find their website lacking in any information about the contents of the product that is useful.
But, I would still buy the "regular" brand because I hate beer and don't know how anyone could drink it.

I like mikes harder cranberry. because they offer an IA .5 cent refund, we saved & took them in for recycling. Many of the places for redemption refused to take them because they "didn't sell it". How can the cans be printed with a state refund & not have it be honored?, or is someone not being truthful?
