Iced Tea-Flavored Beer: Gross or Great?

As the weather starts getting warmer, we usually start thinking about two things: iced tea and beer. And now, we can have them in the same can. Molson Coors Brewing Co is launching Coors Light Iced Tea, meant to appeal to drinkers who prefer the taste of wine or cocktails rather than beer.

Coors Light Iced Tea will go on sale first in Canada, where consumers supposedly like flavored beer, Molson executives said. Other new products include Carling Zest, a limited-time-only beer with citrus flavors and an autumn-inspired Leinenkugels beer.

But as much as we like iced tea ... and beer ... something seems a bit off about putting the two together. We would definitely try one at a summer barbecue though. How about you? Do you think the idea of an iced tea-flavored beer is gross -- or great?

    If I want the taste of Iced Tea, I'll drink Iced Tea. If I drink a beer I want to taste beer not Iced Tea. It never ceases to amaze me what stupid tricks and gimmicks some people will fall for. There truly is a sucker born every minute.

    this sounds absolutely disgusting. what's next? koolaid -flavored beer? i don't understand why they would mesh the 2. i mean, it's pretty simple- if you want beer, drink beer and if you want iced tea, then drink iced tea but it's a baaaaaad idea to combine them together. i personally don't think this concoction will succeed. (but then again, you never know)

    Beers Stouts, Ale's etc have a taste that are on purpose. They result from the ingredients as well as the method and time to brew them. Flavoring beer is an insult to the art of beer making! If you can't handle the natural taste of beers etc, then do mixed drinks.

    Disgusting! That's sacrilege. That's about as bad as fruit flavored beer. Good beer consists of the following: Grain (barley, wheat, oats), yeast, water, and hops, NOTHING MORE!!!

    What?? Have none of you ever tasted a Twisted Tea? Malt beverage iced tea drink. They go down sooooo easy, and I'm familiar with many beer drinkers that also love them. twisted tea

    Iced Tea with alcohol in it? Nothing new there. As long as it doesn't try to taste like beer, I'm sure it will be fine. Tea flavored beer sounds gross, but that's not what we have here.

    Beer is already gross enough in my opinion. To me, beer looks like piss in a can or a bottle.

    I was thinking "I'd try it" until I saw it was Coors making it. I don't care for their beer [about the only one I don't like] and it suddenly didn't seem like such a great idea. If someone had one, I'd taste it, but I don't think I'd buy it. Santa Cruz Mountain Brewery makes beer with espresso-which sounds pretty gross at first but it's pretty good. But then again they make great beer.

    I voted gross, but not because I have NEthing against tea itself, what I thinque of as being gross is Coors Light based on itz own merits!

    I don't drink beer and probably never will, but flavored beer does not sound satisfying. Especially iced tea.

    We drink our iced tea when we want iced tea. When we want to get blotto, we drink beer. We know it tastes like crap that is why we get blotto. Actually, this is somewhat confusing to explain, if our beer tasted good we wouldn't have an excuse anymore for getting blotto. I mean who ever heard of (I'm dating myself here) nickel pitcher night for iced teas?

    It's just that after all these centuries of brewing beer if it was meant to taste good it would. Nope, beer tastes exactly how it’s supposed to taste. I had a froe froe beer at a microbrewery once called a cyclist; Best damn beer I ever tasted. I would have been cool w/that but I took a quick scan around the microbrew and all persons male or female had a mug of whatever swills except those people… those whom shall remain known merely as “the holier than thou people". They were jamming on the Cyclist beers so it’s not like that beer alone would remain undrawn. I switched for my favorite beer since age 16 immediately, Lite Beer by Miller. It tastes great!

    The worst was Molson 67. 67 for the number of calories in the bottle. WTF, somebody made my beer feel fat. Come on Molson!!! Add a couple more calories to make Molson 69, at least that would be kind of funny.

    LOL. Love your warped sense of humor!
    When I have a beer, I want to enjoy it. It's a treat. I guess it would be different if I were having 17. The only thing worse than Coors is lite beer. Blech.

    Thanks and I agree, beer is meant to be enjoyed as beer. If I want something with fruit and alcohol in it, I'll drink one of the may fruit drinks on the market or I'll make my own. I think Snoop Dogg even sang/rapped a tune about such a concoction, that song wouldn't have been the same if he dropped the Gin and Juice and replaced it with some lame beer.

    'Rollin down the street
    Smokin Indo
    Sippin Bud light with lime'

    not very Gangsta to me.

    As for light beer. I enjoy the beer diet, after 6 regular strength beers, I don't care what I look like. Problem solved.
