Were any of you Zima drinkers?

I've been enjoying MGD 64 Lemonade...a summer beer by Miller with only 64 calories per bottle, maligned by blog posts such as this. Really? People hate it that much? There are handcrafted beers...then there's miller. I don't expect them to be the same.

I wonder, though, if the whole thing is more a nostalgia kick for me. 'Cos some of my pals were big into Zima, back in the day. And I think MGD 64 Lemonade tastes like Zima, only it's diet!

(I could have sworn my pal had a pic of us enjoying Zimas on Facebook somewhere. I emailed him.)

OMG, I loved Zima (the original flavor, not the fruity abominations that came later). I drank Zima over crushed ice with a shot of Chambord mixed in, my favorite warm-weather drink for quite a few years. I pine for it every summer.

Maybe the MGD 64 will be your new summer drink!

We don't have weird beers in Canada. You guys have all that weird stuff like pumpkin and blueberry. We have regular and light. That's it. Be happy. :-)

In my youth we had Molson Canadian, Labatt's Blue and Labatt's light. If you were hillbilly you drank Labatt's 50 but that was more of a Quebec thing. Now of course we have fancier stuff, still nothing flavoured really. I do like the Alexander Keith's White Ale. It's kind of citrusy in a really faint way, I guess lighter. We're pretty rigid in our beer drinking habits up here. None of that fancy ass stuff. ;-)

All your "standard" beers are considered imports, here.

I don't remember if Zima was expensive or not. I think it cost a bit more than regular beer.
