Can. Light sweet sour malt aroma. Clear pale gold with a small white head. Barley malt flavor. Light body, average carbonation. I’ve had much worse light beers.

Cabin fridge rate. Pours a very pale straw yellow with a small fizzy white head that hung around a bit. The nose is pretty bad, all corn sweetness and a slight bit of a garbage juice / rubber like thing going on. The flavor is equally bad, sickening corn syrup sweetness and that’s about it. There’s no disguising this guy, this is macro crap at its worst. This was noticeably worse than the Labatt Light and Busch Light that preceded this in my evening of rating out of the cabin fridge. Sticky and clingy sweet mouthfeel with fizzy carbonation. This stuff is pretty awful. Below average among ’macro lights’.

Horrible. Brings back memories of High School, for all the wrong reasons. Pay the extra few bucks and get Coors.

The lightest beer in the country without a doubt. If you want to look like a total badass (and broke-ass) grab a couple Keystone 30-packs and walk proudly out of the grocery store. The biggest debate regarding Keystone is whether or not it is expensive water or cheap beer. I lean towards cheap beer, and for that reason, I will pick it up when I want my beer to be as light as my last paycheck. Perfect for shotgunning, beer bonging, chugging, playing catch with, and any other beer-related activity that somebody in a frat would partake in. An iconic beer, and one that has given me many memories in my lifetime.

This was my drinking (chugging) beer of choice during college. It is by no means a quality beer. When put up against the likes of a Natural Light, however, it tastes all the sweeter. Bland but drinkable and a decent head for its lowly rank.

Keystone Light is so thin there are places where city water has more substance. It is nearly flavorless. The only thing I pick up in the palate is some cheap cereals. I guarantee this is not actually a recipe, just Coors Light that misses the brew profile and is watered down to a neutral state.

Tastes like raisens and ass. Good to drink fast at a tailgate in college. Thats about it.

Reminds me of a watered-down bud light. An amazing waste of liquid. "Never bitter" is right, because bitter would imply some flavor.

Not the worst macro-lager I have ever had, but certainly not the best. Pretty tasteless aside from a corn husk feel to it. Meh

Keystone Light is cheap as piss and you might as well be drinking piss. Keystone Light smells like piss. It looks like piss. It tastes like piss. It is fizzy like piss in a freshly pissed in toilet bowl.
