COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

For what it is, great apperance crystal clear, and very light in color like it should be. Aroma is very subtle, little hop character, little malt character, but not much of either. flavor is pretty basic, no off flavors what so ever. Very basic safe beer. Great for bbqs.

orangesol (748) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Served via can into a pint glass.

A - Pours pale yellow with a one finger tall white head leaving no lacing down the glass.

S - Smells like flavored water. Little to no hops, malt, barley, ect. to speak of.

T - Very light body. Very similar to the nose with little to no hops or malt at all. The only detectable hops seem to be the faint bitterness that is only noticeable thanks to the prickly carbonation. Finish is really nothing at all. Easily one of the worst beers out there.

M - Light body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Crisp feel with not much of anything lingering in the finish.

D - Sure I could pound a few of these but why would I want to? If I wanted to drink water I would.

(Revised from 2007 rating.) Pours a pale, clear gold with lots of visible carbonation and a white head. Pale malts, grass, some sugary sweetness, maybe a little hay. Not much to it. Straightforward light American lager. Andnot a badly constructed one at that. It isnít interesting, but it isnít one of the worst beers around.

2700th, the shit we do for ticks. 330ml bottle at 3.8%. Pours gold with a thin head. Aroma is light corn and lemon. Taste has straw and co2. Bland.

Now that Belgian-Brazilian conglomerate InBev bought Anheuser-Busch, it is a violation of the Buy America Act to serve this beer at the White House. Sorry Mr. President.

MarkoNm (508) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 23, 2014
Pours a clear golden color, topped with frothy white head. Malty aroma, Quite grainy too. The taste is watery and rather sweet. No bitterness to speak of, no aftertaste. Drinkable when ice cold, as a refreshment. Nothing special.

An average beer in my opinion. Great for drinking on a hot day or after a good exercise but other than that, I wouldnít recommend drinking it.

Bud Light. If you could please give me any other sort of light fixture instead I will gladly take it. Rice, rice baby.

The only flavors in Bud Light only appear once the beer warms, and you donít want to go there. It works only as an alcohol delivery vehicle. If I want to drink beer, but actually hate beer, I could gulp down this stuff ice cold. Thatís all Iíve got though. And I, along with most others, have had plenty of cans of BL. I guess one good thing about the beer is that once one graduates to real/good beer, the change is mind blowing. Discovering a great pale ale after years of this would probably (definitely) be the biggest upgrade in a beer drinkerís life.

Bork (140) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2014 No flavors but a watery, sour aftertaste reminiscent of a wet, moldy rag. Quite possibly the worst beer in the world.
