Good for a cheap mass produced beer. Low alcohol content so really good for tailgating or day drinking.

Tried on a warm day, after a bike ride. Pours clear light yellow, substantial white head. Aroma is light hints of malt and corn. Taste is barely perceptible, it really is close to water or seltzer. Mouthfeel is very light and very carbonated.

25-ounce can in a pint glass. Tried this and Coors Light side-by-side. They were both rather bad, but Bud Light is the inferior one. Practically no flavor at all (although at least not a bad flavor like Bud Light Platinum). Very easy drinking though. Typical mass-mass produced lager.

Typical golden color with little to no head. Weak aroma mostly grainy. Overall not that great. Just a mass produced American party beer that is heavily marketed in the super bowl commercials. "THE KING OF BEERS" Iím not sure about that.

Today my building had a backyard barbecue and potluck to celebrate a neighborís 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 Leinenkugelís 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 ítis. 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. Fieldsí 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 Iíve 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 Daleís. Light gold and white head. Standard graininess and a little metallic aroma. Insignificant light bitterness and a light body. Beats the corona extra thatís 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 fanís IQ though, so thatís a plus. Awful beer overall.
