550ml can from The Beer Store, London, Ontario. Rating from August 2013. Big can but not big flavour.

Thanks to my brother Matt for this beer Iíd never buy on my own. Aroma: There is nothing here that smells like a product of nature or agriculture. Maybe corn? If so, the lowest level of corn. Thankfully, the nose is very, very light. Appearance: So pale, youíd guess it was slightly gold colored water, instead of light colored beer. Peroxide head that somehow stayed afloat. Flavor: Just barely nothing- light chemical or solvent, but I didnít throw up, so it gets a 2. Palate: Carbonated water. Overall: Purely an alcohol delivery device with almost nothing in common with beer. A laboratory product.

There is nothing to this beer that any advocate should enjoy. Bread, grass, Caramel are all here, but in trace amounts

I donít know why. Pours a pale yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor are pretty much non existent. Like drinking water with a hint of corn and skunk. What a waste.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2015 I think this used to called "Coors Light Extra Crappy". Had one ten years ago and thought it was the worst drink (beer or otherwise) Iíd ever had in my life. Given one the other day and only accepted it to be polite. I was expecting the worst but this time it was actually drinkable. Iíll never buy it, but not bad for a bottom tier brew.

Not a great beer. Tastes like a watered down attempt at a beer. I guess if you are looking to tailgate cheap, have at it.

"Always smooth, never bitter" ... never any taste at all for that matter. Bland and flavorless macro lite lager, only redeeming quality is its smooth easy drinking body. Smells and looks cheap and industrial, because it is. Don't pay attention to this while drinking and it'll be alright.

A horrendous piss-like brew. Only suitable for fraternities or those otherwise completely out of money. It only gets more points overall for being cheap.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2014 Can: This is a pretty rough drinker, thatís for sure. Itís got that mellow corn-y sweetness that plagues many of the American macro lagers today. Metallic, tinny, overly grainy, & leaning too much on the adjunct. Overall, just a waste of your time. Itís not good, itís not tasty... It isnít much of anything, really.

I poured a 24oz can into a large mug. I had a best before date of 3/31/14 and cost $0.97 ($0.04 per ounce).

Appearance: Pale yellow hue. Completely transparent body with little carbonation visible. Pours to a small, bright white, soapy head which fizzles away quickly and completely.

Smell: Intense aroma of corn grits along with slight dirty or earthy scent and a hint of metal.

Taste: I think Iím reaching a point where I can differentiate between the major macro lagers. Thereís a lot of similarities between Keystone Light and Coors Light, but they are not the same. Both are corn-forward in their palettes, though Keystone Light is even more mild and perhaps even sweeter. Itís a ridiculously simple-tasting palette, though. A touch of sweetness up front followed by a slightly astringent tang sensation on the finish coupled with some metallic character. Itís not horrible, in fact, itís much more mild than it is off-putting, but thereís definitely nothing to genuinely enjoy here.

Drinkability: Keystone Light is something of a paradox when it comes to drinkability. The mouthfeel is, obviously, thin, flat and watery, but somehow carbonation keeps getting stuck in my throat. Is this beer smooth or isnít it? I canít tell. It at least finishes clean, though I would not describe it as truly refreshing. Its 4.2% ABV weight actually seems a little high, if thatís possible.
