Clear yellow real clear but weird light yellow. Why it gets decent appearance rating. Very carbonated like some water. No aroma no flavor. Just a bud but add some H2o

Draft to plastic cup. I guess I can stomach an oz of this because itís free, just like that Coors light I had earlier. Aroma of malt, corn, syrup...just like the Coors light. Clear light piss yellow with a thin bright white head. Taste is disgusting...adjunct city.

It just works. Bud light is a decent cheap beer. It's not for your current crop of snotty nosed enthusiasts, but it's good enough for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Another one I had to buy again just to tick off the style. Buy a Bud, drink a third of it, then fill it with water. And there ya have it - Bud Light. Donít even bother to buy one of these. Water down a real Bud instead. That way you at least have a third of a beer thatís somewhat drinkable.

Can. Aroma is light malt. Appearance is clear, pale yellow with nice sparkle. Taste is faint malt. Palate is light bodied and thin and a bit overcarbonated. Overall, there arenít huge negatives here but the absence of negatives doesnít make a positive. I drank it since it was offered to me and I wanted to be social. If you want something light, and you want something mild, and you donít want something offensive, then I suppose this would fit the bill.

I attended an Irish Pub for a radio station party, and a perk for the party was a free draft pour of this. Since I would never order this without a situation usually beyond this, I will get this elusive tick out of the way. Pours a clear pale gold color with zero head. Has a grainy, yet fruity flavor with an annoying finish. Yes, itís not quite bad, but annoying. Couldnít tell you why. The way this beer tastes doesnít make me mad necessarily, but I do want to complain to the person next to me. ...... now that thatís over with. Free beer is free beer in 99% of the cases. Here, itís a drink enough to properly rate this, and brag about it for the next 25 minutes. In all fairness, this beer is what they say it is. They arenít going around calling it the worldís most refreshing beer. This beer 9 for partying, and Iím too old for that shit. I finally cursed in a beer rating. I had a feeling it would come with this beer. On a positive note, I have had worse.

Pours a clear yellow color with white head. Not bad, not good. Itís drinkable so I donít understand the ultra low ratings, Iíve had much worse.

The 'beer' for those that don't necessarily like beer. Awful. Only drinkable after sweating outside, not for enjoyment. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On-tap, pours a clear, dark yellow color with a slight head. Very weak grain aroma. Cold, light, easy drinking refeshment. Obviously not flavorful, but it does the job on a hot day.

12 oz. can. Drank a lot of this in high school, because it was the thing then. Have really never cared for this "Queen of Beers".
