Not really much to say that isn?t already said on the southern standard that is the king of the big three. No floral notes and flat palette make this high volume seller drinkable if also forgettable. Get the freshest, coldest you can find and the crisp note of aluminum coming off the cap might make at least the first few sips worth your time. Past that? Enjoy conversation, cause you won?t be enjoying the beer.

[2/2/16] Can at Yonatanís 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.

On tap in pint glass. Appearance: color is standard pale straw, small white head dissipates quickly. Moderate streaming carbonation and virtually no lacing. Aroma: not much here (as with all light beers), some faint barley and other grains, no real hops that I pick up. Mouthfeel: light and crisp with a too-dry finish. This is a beer that is so dry that it leaves me thirsty. Flavor is so very mild. A bit of barley malt sweetness along with a maybe a slight hint of citrus in the middle and finish. Overall: it is what it is. Loved by hundreds of millions, hated by millions. Personally I would never buy it (had this sample in a íbottomlessí pint at a banguet. That being said, itís not awful. Many say it tastes like piss, but I have never consumed piss so I donít know whether that is true or not.

This "beer" is yellow fizzy water. Starts off boring and unimaginative and finishes assaulting the tongue. If I am tubing down the river I would consider drinking a few.

On tap. Served in a shaker pint. I believe this is my first Bud Light ... and my last. This is probably the most watery and tasteless beer Iíve ever had (possible exception: another An-Busch Light beer). It almost certainly has less aroma than any other beer Iíve ever had. I have good reason to suspect I have a rather sensitive sense of smell yet this beer has almost none. They shouldnít even call this beer.

Draft at the bowling alley. The world doesnít need another review of Bud Light, because essentially everyone in the world has already had a Bud Light. And the people who have never had one and are thinking of trying it definitely arenít going to be looking up reviews first. But, here goes anyway... Thin and weak with a color thatís somewhere between watered down urine and water. The hops and malts are both pushed way to the back, although I will say that itís all so restrained that there really arenít too many off-flavors. Exceptionally uninteresting, but strangely appropriate for a night of bowling.

Draught at Pier 73, Richmond, BC,/i>
Pale blond color. The cereals flavor is paler than the color; no bitterness. Probably the beer closest to water I ever tried, waste of liquor tax and a few other things. I canít understand why somebody would drink this.

Tap at proper west. Poorly hydrated urine. No head. Aroma is no. There isnít any. Corn and rice at best. Flavor is corn and rice. Wow, thatís watery. Yea, no. Good thing I didnít pay for it.

grass, golden, clear, minimal head. Faint grassy aroma. Clear gold in the glass. Light bitterness, heavy metal notes. Very little taste, yet offensive to the tongue.
