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.

Can bought at ab LCBO in Toronto/Canada out of curiosity. Meh. I biked 30 km in Toronto on a sunny hot day and I thought this cannot be that bad to kill my thirst. I was wrong. This beer tastes a lot better when it comes out of your body than when it comes in!

Not a good beer. Tastes like carbonated water mixed with a little unpleasant flavors.

Pours a clear yellow with a weak white head that fade into a rim that leaves some lacing. Nose is a little fruity and a little grassy, you know you are drinking cheap swill. Taste is of a little corn and dry. A little acidic. Really low on flavor, so basically you are drinking a glass of water with some alcohol mixed in. Body is ultra light, carbonation high and mouthfeel watery and just like drinking some mineral water.

Give it a two for clarity but dat is it. No flavor no hops slightly metallic not even any grain to speak of. No real buzz either. Real real fizzy.

I’m reviewing this beer only because I’m tired of my husband asking me if I reviewed a Bud Light yet. Yes I have. And it’s terrible. An aroma of aluminum and rice, The body a dark lemon yellow, extra fizzy and topped with a blinding white head. Taste mirrors the aroma… Over carbonated, over processed, under considered.

Wife brought me back a super sized can from Boston. Let me make one quick point about the people below. Anyone who rates this beer has to consider it’s a light beer. Would you review a Camry and say it is much uglier than a ferrari and far too slow? No....because it’s about the market it is aimed at. Bud light is a mainstream lager made for general consumption. It is designed for the more health concious yet ignorant consumer who will grab it in multipacks in the local supermarket. Anyway back to the beer. To me it is very much Budweiser but slightly more watery, yet with a crisper taste. Beer settles quick and has no head. It smells like Bud and has the same corn and rice edge to it...to me Bud smacks of rice but most yanks never mention it. The fact that it is clean and crisp and just 4.2% means it can be sessioned more than the average American beer. If you have to compare it to rivals it also comes out better than most light beers(aside from Miller). Indeed compared to Heineken light it is streets ahead. Overall given it is a light beer I still think it is not too shabby.

As John Oliver said, "If a nickel could urinate, it would taste like a Bud Light"

Very watery/light golden in color. Not very strong in flavor. Would not recommend this beer.

"It tastes like the flat soda a homeless man uses to wash off birds. If water could just go bad this is what it would taste like."
