Beer lovers across the U.S. have accused Anheuser-Busch of watering down its Budweiser, Michelob and other brands, in class-action suits seeking millions in damages.

The only A/ B product I buy is the Hurricane High Gravity Malt Liquor and I do not think the stated ABV of 8.1% is accurate. I think it is closer to 6% and it does taste watered down.

I've decided to boycott A/B products until I have some reassurance that their beers are not watered down and actually contain the stated ABV on the labels.
