Itís an everyday beer. Nothing special about it. Everyone has had this beer. But I agree I donít understand how this is the favorite beer in the US.

Martinus (4549) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2016
Very pale golden colour, white head. Slight malty aroma. Light flavour, hint of malts, light bitter. Watery finish. Basically, this tastes like carbonated water with a splash of beer.
My first Bud Light ever, and oh boy, itís a disappointment. I wasnít expecting a great beer (after all, it doesnít really pretend to be one, now does it?), but I was having a nice conversation and rather in the mood for something refreshing and not too demanding. I wasnít ready for something so watery and utterly devoid of anything connected with flavour though. A liquid almost, but not quite, entirely unlike beer.
(from draught @ a local tourist trap near Times Square, NYC)

Can left in fridge in New Orleans. In plastic cup @approx 5 degrees C. Pours very pale yellow with small white head with decent retention. Hardly any discernable aroma and the same goes for the taste. I donít recall tasting a beer with so little to offer. What is there is a slight hint of corn and malt, leaving a very faint artificial bready aftertaste. I donít see the point of this horrible product and would definitely rather drink decent water. We poured out most of the can and left two more someone left in our fridge for the next poor suckers in the hotel room.

16 ounce bottle. Thin white head. Light straw in appearance. Little sweet. Thin and moderately carbonated. OK for a mass produced beer.

Tastes more like the can it came in than actual beer. The only reason youíll probably be drinking this "beer" is to get drunk at college parties or because it was the only beer under $10 on the menu. How does someone make this and say "Iím happy with what Iíve just made."?

GenDV138 (6106) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 29, 2016
Free draft pour at Disneyís Hollywood Studios ABC Commissary during the Splunk .conf2016 party. Plastic cup. Clear straw yellow with off-white head. Aromas of corn, malt, wheat. Tastes of corn, malt, water, light citrus. Light body with a dry finish. Not something Iíd pay for but it was somewhat refreshing after a long walk in the warm weather.

If Joseph fritzel made beers... I canít knock their commitment and work rate because it must take a lot of them to continue to produce a less than mediocre beverage. I donít even want to call this drink a beer because that is an insult to all other Brewers. Iíd rather experience death by suffocation than be put through another sip of this shite.

Semplicemente liquame. Forse la peggior versione di una birra mai sperimentata, va oltre líinsulso.
