Anheuser-Busch has announced plans to launch a lime-infused extension to its Bud Light brand in the US.

Speaking to just-drinks yesterday (13 February) A-B confirmed that "Bud Light Lime has been in the works for more than two years", and will launch across the US on 5 May, supported by outdoor, TV, radio, print and digital advertising campaigns.

The brewer said that the move comes in response to consumers' growing interest in flavoured drinks noted by the heightened trend in energy drinks and vitamin-infused water.

The brand extension is set to see A-B make a speculated investment of over US$35m on its advertising and launch campaign to support its entry into "The Bud Family".

The spokesperson added that the drink "addresses the sweeter palate of 29% of beer consumers" building off the success of its Bud Light brand. The six-pack will reportedly retail at $1-1.50 more than Bud Light.
