Holy hell, I found the greatest deal ever.  For those of you in the know, Food 4 Less, the Ralphs/Kroger bulk subsidiary started carrying this a few weeks back for the unheard of price of $2 for 2 L.  At first, I had to see if there was alcohol in it, and upon closer inspection, this is a hearty 5%.  My second thought was this must taste like Bud Light on the way back up, and while this is not perfect, it is rather good.  You can tell that this isn't a light lager and has a very nice sweetness that only comes through in the better lagers.  I think as a Bud Heavy substitute, you wouldn't get any complaints.  And I believe this is the first beer to break the 50 NSP barrier.  Hell, a 36 pack of Coors Light only hits 30 NSP (at $19 per case).  So thank you Food 4 Less, the greatest shitty grocery store in California.
