0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
If you thought BL was bad, this takes it to another level. A hyped up, more alcoholic concoction of the original that is incredibly popular with college frat kids. Smells like rotten beer; literally. Skunky, with an overpowering alcoholic stench. Appearance is average, pours a light amber brown. The taste is absolutely horrendous. Skunkier than BL with an obscene alcoholic overload. Itís like drinking gasoline, it burns. What little flavor BL had is washed out by the extra alcohol content. Fizzy as is the norm with Macros. Just a rotten aftertaste though. Metallicy, chemically nasty stuff. Avoid this like the plague. Awful, awful, awful. If anything, stick with regular BL. The only thing this accomplishes is intoxicating the drinker in a more rapid fashion.

Can from Albertsons. Drinking this for an Untappd badge, period. Not expecting much. Normal pale lager look and feel, nose a bit maltier than the norm. Taste is sweet grain and adjuncts, not bad, mouth feel is fairly slick. Very drinkable, not much in flavor, but overall decent.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Light gold with high carbonation. Nose is more corn malt than the original. No detection of hops. Somewhat watery but a step up from regular Bud Light. Courtesy of my brother in law.

Appearance is transparent gold. Taste is watery corn pee. I donít like Bud Light, so the fact that this is 6% is somewhat redeeming. However, this is still an offence to good beer and Iíd prefer it was never made.

This brew actually surprised me. This is probably the best product AB has produced. It is light sweet and refreshing. This beer is a great choice after work on a hot summer day.

This is the socially acceptable drink for someone in a crowd of judgemental know-nothings. Still tastes like BL piss-water but has the potency to get you tipsy enough to deal with the likes of the closed-minded. You can drink it like water and it goes through as such. Ideal for lightweight novices but decent enough to fit in with the crowd.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light golden straw color. Looks like Bud Light. It has a head that lasts pretty well, probably longer than a Bud Light. Lots of little bubbles, and theyíre clinging to the sides of my glass like crazy! Lacing? Did I miss it?
Right from the moment I opened the bottle, I could smell something. At first I thought it was floral, but now I think itís just íunroastedí malt. It also has alcohol on the nose. Itís different. I donít know why Iím rating it as highly as I am.
Taste is very light, the lightness of Bud Light of course. But because of it, I taste alcohol, and I detect some hoppiness in there. The hops bitterness is countered by some sweetness. Itís pretty good. In no way complex, but it works,
Mouthfeel, yeah. I donít know what it is, but it just doesnít finish very clean. Itís light in body, but doesnít finish clean and crisp like Bud Light. Not that Iím comparing it necessarily to Bud Light, but itís not what I expect.
Overall, itís pretty good. After 22oz of this, and the alcohol is starting to kick in, itís starting to seem better and better. I like it. I would drink it again. I would recommend it. But if itís a high alcohol beer you want, there are better options. If itís Bud Light you want, then thatís what you should buy. If you want both, then íthis Budís for you!"

Clear, pale gold, fizzy. No head. Nose slightly malty. Tastes sweet like diet soda. Slightly bitter aftertaste. What can I say? It's better than standard Bud Light.

Clear yellow pour with medium white head. Aroma of malts, grains and metallic. Taste of malts, grains, corn and a metallicky sweet finish. Light bodied, medium carbonation, drinkable but not very good.
