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.

This was my staple beer whilst on vacation in california trying to keep up with my australian drinking companions, something that is most impossible for most North Americans. Any way was given this in many cups from the draught spout. A clear straw colored brew, little head, very little head to see, I get more aroma from flat 7 up. Taste is light bitter and some little sour, but after several glasses becomes washed away. A most non enjoyable drink, only to keep me buzzed and was cheap.

"why drink beer at all if youíre going to drink this? the only debate between myself and others is whether a skunky beer such as bud light, is better than a beer you can hardly taste at all, like miller lite? iíll take neither"

If I have the money, this is the light I drink. Iím in St. Louis and I think AB charges the highest prices here. I, therefore, sample other lights from Miller and a few come pretty close at bargain prices.

Tastes like a good time. Smells like Seattle. Played a roll in the invention of the "wife beater" under shirt tank top. Very American, which is what matters most.

Hipster, NASCAR, if I actually have to rate this perfectly clear H2O you are all totes. Grain dust filtered poo poo. If you have to drink this so you donít get hurt at a race event then I will understand.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Virtually non-existent. Very thin maybe a hint of corn. Appearance- A translucent yellow with heavy carbonation and almost no head. Taste- Sort of carbonated water with alcohol with a corn flavor. Palate- Light bodied heavily carbonated. Overall- A light beer to swill in quantity. I have done it many times before and I will do it again. Not world class but it does the trick.

When it comes to cheap gameday beer, I tend to lean towards Miller Lite over Bud. Bud Light really just tastes a bit like bad rain water. And not that Miller is anything to write home about. Iíd even take a PBR tall boy over Bud any day. Bud is tasteless regardless of bottle or can. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is the most popular light beer in America. But McDonaldís is the most popular restaurant, so itís not like popularity automatically makes something great, or even good. This is a very flavorless beer, with very little barley/rice/hop flavor. Ice cold, it can be refreshing, but only if you are on a budget and donít want any sort of complexity or flavor. At least it isnít as bad as Keystone light or Busch light.
