6 pack from the local walmart for a cheap attempt to drown out a tough day on the railroad. I had only two but both were more enjoyable than the average light beer. Pale yellow, well balanced bitterness. Enough grassy hops to be noticeable. Typical water body. Perhaps the best of the light beers???

Originally rated on 9/16/08. Standard light beer not to bad not to good. Average apperance, aroma, flavor and mouthfeel of any light beer. Good thing about it is that its not offensive in anyway

Backlog. Lighter version of the original. Too sweet and watery. Cardboard and light corn. No thanks.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

1/23/16 Chicago (12 oz bottle poured into tall glass). Very pale clear yellow pour, mild carbonation and head with decent lacing. Faint malt and corn aroma and taste. Somewhat sweet taste, mild hops. Very smooth going down, thin texture with clean taste. I liked their prior offering from decades past much better.

Twelve ounce bottle from The Party Source, tasted on November 27, 2015. Yellow color, cheap pale lager aroma with a weird perfume-like smell I have encountered in a lot of cheap lagers, light adjunct /sour taste. I will never try Michelob Ultra but what’s depressing is that this crap and regular Michelob are probably better.

A very good lager, the hops are very much there but are not overly abundant.I like the maltiness too, perfecto.

Bottled, canned common, this particular beer rose to popularity in the late 70’s with the claim of it being a light beer. Poured into a glass a light golden watery color with a large bubbly head that vanishes in under 15 seconds, smells lightly of hops in a ’tea in the sun all day’ way. Taste is almost nonexistent with the subtle dash of a ’bad tea’ taste. Goes down light with a somewhat bitter finish. Maybe a subtle hint of lemon. Although the rating I give is horrible, the truth is that this beer fits it’s market. It’s marketed as a refreshing, light beer and you certainly get what you pay for.

Did someone switch the bud light n me, can’t tell difference. Clear yellow real clear but weird light yellow. Why it gets decent appearance rating. Very carbonated like some water. No aroma no flavor.

It is what it is. Really nothing special. Only good after working your butt off in the blazing summer heat.
