Had this at a picnic yesterday. Worse of the three American Lights. This has an aftertaste that reminds me each sip, exactly what I’m drinking.

Very carbonated, light gold, and with a fluff head that collapses like the Anaheim Angels every September. In my mind, this beer vacillates between Am. standard and Am. light as far as mouthfeel and heaviness are concerned--but it is probably not worth quibbling over the difference between light and ultra light. Finishes with a flat, cardboard feel on the palate--at least this beer is clean and crisp.

Not much of any flavor to talk about - useful when you’re looking for quantity, not quality. For the battle of the U.S. macrobrews, I give my nod to Bud.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2003 My friend was drinking this, so I partook. Terrible. No flavor, like water, and just really awful. Re-rate: I had a can at a fish fry and it was very thin, I could see to the bottom of the can after opening it! White head, but actually not an offensive flavor, sort of like MGD made palatable.

Might quite possibly be the worst beer I’ve ever had. Almost water, with a very weak taste. The only thing it’s got going for it is the fantastic marketing. I wouldn’t offer this to guests unless their sole purpose was to slam back beers until they passed out, and that’s only because the stuff’s not expensive.

Vintage dated Super Bowl XXXII (1998?). Clearing out the fridge before the move. Rancid foamy crap. Guess I missed the best before date by about 36 MONTHS!!!

Very watery, not much flavor at all. But nothing offensive, cheap, and it gets you drunk.

Much better than budlight or coors light. Best light beer available.

Re-rate. I was unfair to this the first time, I must have been in a critical mood. It’s no worse than Bud. I like it cold in the can with fried chicken. What can I say.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2003 I tried this on tap in downtown Milwaukee, and it was so fresh and tasted far better than I ever tasted it. They must have just milked the cow. It almost doesn't count unless it's very fresh.
