beh. The ílightí actually seems to dim the urination quality so prevalent in the regular bud. Still, if someone gave you the choice of drinking urine, or watered down urine.. wouldnt you be upset?
Very very little flavor.. and the bit of flavor it does have is just bad. Bad aftertaste.
The American masses, snookered by an ad campaign?? Never, It just CANT be! Shocking.

Very fizzy and devoid of flavor. Better than a Miller.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2004 This tastes better than bud in that the cereal graininess is not as prevalent. I actually can handle this one almost as easily as miller lite or blue light when getting drunk, much better than coors lite. almost has a taste to it too.

You can do better for the price if all you want is a cheap American macrobrew. Still, itís a standard because people donít really care as long as it is refreshing, at that it is.

A true testament to a marketing department who can sell even the most repulsive bile to the masses.
The label on the most current bottles states Bud light is brewed using only íthe finest grainsí... I find it interesting that they replaced the old slogan that listed rice as one of the principal ingredients. Why would they not continue to boldly advertise the usage of a rich, flavorful grain like rice?
Do you remember the episode of íThe Simpsonsí where the mafia was milking rats to sell to kids? Iím reasonably certain that Budweiser uses this same process, only they connect their equipment to a different orifice.
The fact that the FDA allows Bud Light to be foisted upon us as íbeerí is one of the great American travesties. It lacks any distinctive flavor, save that ever present ískunkí that relentlessly assaults your tongue like a drunken prom date.

Light in taste - thatís for sure. Too much carbonation. Basically drinking oates and rice. Yeah - it might work on a hot summer day - but Iíd rather go with a Corona.
