The Seltzer Wars Get Summery


Both Seltzers Have Similar Flavors

Bud Light's new seltzer lemonade comes in four flavors: Original Lemonade, Strawberry Lemonade, Black Cherry Lemonade, and Peach Lemonade. Mike's new hard lemonade seltzer also launched with four flavors: Lemon, Strawberry, Mango, and Pineapple.

Mike's Original Has Even More Flavors

As one of the OG spiked lemonades, Mike's Original Hard Lemonade has a large range of flavors, including Pomegranate Blueberry, Mango, and Pineapple Strawberry. There's no word yet on whether they plan to expand the new hard seltzer's flavors.


They're Equally Boozy

Mike's Original, Mike's Lemonade Seltzer, and Bud Light Seltzer Lemonade all have 5% ABV. Looking for something boozier? Mike's Harder has 8% ABV. Want something with less alcohol? Bud Light Lemonade, which combines beer and lemonade, has 4.2% ABV.

They're Equally Sweet

Both Mike's Hard Lemonade Seltzer and Bud Light's Seltzer Lemonade have about 1 gram of sugar per 12-ounce can. This is comparable sugar content to other new and established hard seltzer brands on the market.


You've Got Even More Options

In addition to Mike's, Bud Light's new seltzer lemonade shares a shelf with other spiked lemonade drinks like Truly Lemonade and Natty Light's Naturdays, which was recently released in Pineapple Lemonade.

Which Is The Better Hard Lemonade Seltzer?

On paper, they're nearly identical. Mike's says their "cold-pressed method" makes for better flavor. Bud Light claims adding real lemonade makes their flavor stronger. Both pair well with sunshine and no responsibilities.
