2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
From notes. First reviewed 5/2/2010. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Golden Wheat pours an opaque golden orange color. A medium sized rocky white head forms upon pouring, quickly fading to a thin ring. Plenty of carbonation rising up from the bottom.
Very piecemeal aroma, like I can feel the construction. Light, with pieces of orange and coriander. Barely any wheat.
The ílightí part is painfully obvious in the taste. Light citrus notes and coriander flavors are present, with a little rough grain.
Slightly creamy at the start, but overall it is thin and watery. Leaves an industrial aftertaste.
It is more pleasant than Bud Light, but it drinks the same.

BOTTLE. Hazy orange pour. Sweet wheat flavor with a hint of orange zest and bit of spices. Not bad for a macro.

Surprisingly or maybe not (since having it once was enough) have forgot to rate this one. I had high hopes this would be decent as I do enjoy wheat beers, but in the end it really is just Bud Light with a little citrus.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bud Light Golden Wheat has a very, thick, pillowy cream-colored head and a cloudy, golden appearance with brown yeast chunks floating about. Little lacing is left on the glass. The aroma is of a slight banana whiff and water. Taste is of white wheat bread, a touch of citrus, and a tad of hop bitterness, with a whole lot of water. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Bud Light Golden Wheat finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, easy-drinking, and, unfortunately, a bit dull. Overall, this is a high-average beer. RJT

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Actually a hint of tastiness. Too bad itís so watery and has a nasty finish. Pours pale orange with a small white head. Orange and light malts in the aroma. Watery with a decent but weak citrusy, wheat taste. Metallic and skunky finish.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a hazy golden orange color with a fizzy head that disappears after approx. 1 minute. Has minimal taste with hints of wheat and orange. Tastes a little better than regular Bud Light.

As others have said this is more interesting than the lime or regular Light but still not to good.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
More interesting than regular Bud Light, but still pretty much just a light beer. Grainy flavor with light orange/citrus flavor, slightly bitter in finish.
