I'm not usually up on all of the current drinking trends and that doesn't bother me.  I'm fine for the most part with good bourbon, a Bloody Mary, or a Busch Light.  I'll dabble in a few craft beers too or whatever is free when presented to me.

While at a wedding on Saturday night, a dedicated listener and member of the Stink Ape Nation asked if I had tried Mountain Dew and Busch Light.  He said he had stumbled upon a TikTok video where people were combining the two.

I don't normally drink regular Mountain Dew but will snag a Diet Dew once in a while for a caffeine hit.  I figured I'd try it the way it's advertised on TikTok and also try it with Mountain Dew Zero since I had both on hand in the garage fridge.

Googled the mix ratio and most people said 50/50 is the way to go, so that's what I tried.  Was it any good though?  I personally think it's pretty disgusting.  First, the combination stinks.  Not that Busch Beer smells great anyway, but I had to give the combo the ole sniff test.  It smells to me like really bad beer and piss, but I had to taste it to save you the trouble.

I don't really know how to describe the taste, but it's simply not good.  I would never choose to make this combination again, but would I drink it if already mixed and offered for free?  Maybe, but probably only one.  Nothing about it impressed me, but everyone's taste buds are different.

Have you tried the Mountain Dew and Busch Light combo?  If so, what did you think?
