Introduced nationally in 1982, Bud Light is brewed with a malt and hops ratio different from Budweiser for a distinctively crisp taste with fewer calories.

Today my building had a backyard barbecue and potluck to celebrate a neighbor’s graduation from college. She chose a 12 pack of Bud Light to bring to the party. When I arrived all the Red Stripe, Guiness, and Leinenkugel’s others brought were gone. When we were cleaning up at the end of the party there were still 9 Bud Lights. No one wanted to take them home, but my neighbor was able to convince me the third time she asked. In case you need a more traditional review, here ’tis. 12 oz can pours a pale yellow with small white head that vanishes quickly without any lacing. Aroma is practically nonexistent, although there are faint touches of some mediocre grain. Taste is slighlty sweet with a short dry finish. Body is watery thin with and somewhat fizzy. Despite W.C. Fields’ reason for avoiding water ("because of all the disgusting things fish do in it), I should have stuck to water tonight. At least I am proud to still say I’ve never purchased this one.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Can at Ran and Dale’s. Light gold and white head. Standard graininess and a little metallic aroma. Insignificant light bitterness and a light body. Beats the corona extra that’s in the cooler.

Well, you need something to drink while mowing the lawn. And this weak fizzy water will keep all your toes on your feet until you are done. What is the John Cleese joke about American Beers and Making Love in a Canoe......?

bread, dough, pale, clear, minimal head, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, fizzy What I imagine the "king of beers" would taste like when watered down - I might be on to something here. More IBUs then the average American sports fan’s IQ though, so that’s a plus. Awful beer overall.

Bottled. Better than coors. It still sucks. Of sweet taste. No substance. Decent carbonation

Okay. This beer...has...no...taste. Had it at a conference function with no good beer. This beer has so little taste, the Miller Lite that I had afterwards tasted like a Stone Double IPA. Okay, not really. But you get the point. Carbonated water with hints of beer flavor. Is that enough? I was impressed that they managed to infuse any alcohol into water without leaving a hint of taste behind. Very impressive.

[2/2/16] Can at Yonatan’s place in Oakland. Clear yellow. Aroma of acetaldehyde, a bit of paper. Really bland flavor, light graininess, acetaldehyde, and a light bitterish hint. Very light-bodied. Very watery and bland, but drinkable.
