Here is the tale of two Tilts. One was approved in June of 2007, and the other was approved a bit over a year later. The lower, older (orange) one claims caffeine, ginseng and guarana as ingredients. The upper, newer (green) one claims none of these things. Why? Lyke 2 Drink and The Syracuse newspaper reports:
Anheuser-Busch Inc. will stop producing caffeinated alcohol beverages under an agreement reached with attorneys general in 11 states, including New York, said Attorney General Andrew Cuomo said today. … Under the agreement, Anheuser-Busch will reformulate its Tilt malt beverage and Bud Extra beer to remove caffeine and guarana, a caffeine-bearing berry, company officials said.
This change seems to be well under way.

So now the consumer will just switch to the ol’ Red Bull and Vodka. 😉
It just isn’t the same without the caffeine. It was the best of it’s kind, now it’s gone!
There are plenty of other brands filling in the gap. They are not as good as Tilt? What made Tilt good?
