1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Doing some shameless macro-bashing in this review. To begin, this label embraces artificiality and industrial manufacturing even in its advertising campaign, stressing how it is specially processed to give as light a beer with as much alcohol as possible. The blue bottle, though aesthetically appealing, again projects an industrial image. Actual beer appearance is unattractive no matter how you look at it, a pale yellow clear watery color with some chemical lacing and bubbles. Smell is adjunct sweetness. Taste is exceedingly sweet, some fruity/ sweet straw flavors. Struck me as rather cringe-worthy. Very watery mouthfeel, thought that came to mind was "corn-water." Finish tries to be bitter but ends up an odd sour aftertaste. Not a clean finish at all. I can't tell whether this is better or worse than standard bud light.

My buddy Al from RI loves this beer! Wawaloam Campground will never be the same because as quick as it goes in, it comes out.

If i could rate this a zero i would. Looks like piss. Smells like skunky beer. Tastes like skunky beer laced with formaldehyde.
One of the worst drinking experiences of my life!

This beer is great out of a bottle, but terrible from a can. I was surprised by the difference in taste.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
The blue glass 12oz twist off cap bottle pours with a watery clear body that has a yellow hue and supports a weak white head. The aroma offers up sugary sweetness, pears, corn and apple juice. The taste has a fairly smooth body that tries to be too sweet and later succeeds at it with sugary malts, pears and sweet apple fruity esters and then even more sweetness to midway. This doesn’t have much in the way of the steam roller of sweetness. Hops? Not sure. Too sweet overall but not to the point of being offensive just plenty of sweetness to keep me from trying more of this.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is sweet malt and a fairly strong presence of adjuncts and medium sulphur. Taste is light bland malts and very basic hop character. Appearance is a clear light gold body with a thin bubbly head that retains poorly.

12oz can at BBQ. Drank from can, but I would assume the appearance to be piss yellow. Fuzzy carbonation. Aroma of sweet grain and yeast. Taste is sweet apple, grainy, corn, and yeast. Note to self: Start bringing your own beer to BBQ's!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Another Bud product I’ve had more than enough times.
Here we go.
This was poured at various times into a pint glass and a pilsener glass. There basically isn’t much change in either glass.
The appearance was a light golden color with a rapidly dissipating white head.
The smell had sweet corn aromas.
The taste gives a big hint of sweet corn taste.
On the palate, it sat at/about a medium with a decent evel of carbonation. Overall, just an okay beer by AB, as its nothing I would really go out of my way for again.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From BA review on 3-2-12 -
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a light golden color with a billowy white head. The head fades fast giving just an ever so light bit of lacing.
Smell – Sweet corn aromas are big and bold. The lightest bit of citrus seems to be present as well, but is light in comparison to the sweet corn aroma.
Taste – The taste is as the nose suggests. It gives a big hit of sweet corn taste. Just as in the nose, there is the slightest bit of lemon citrus that bitters the flavor ever so slightly toward the end (still quite sweet however) and rounds out the taste.
Mouthfeel – Medium bodied with a very appropriate level of carbonation. It is also much less watery then the normal light beer.
Overall – This is actually much more flavorful then the average light beer and its mouthfeel blows the normal light beer out of the water. It still is very one dimensional however with its taste consists nearly entirely of corn. Better than the average light beer, that is for sure, but not something to pine for.
