COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Natural Light is brewed with a blend of premium American and imported hops, and a combination of malt and corn. Its longer brewing process produces a lighter body, fewer calories and an easy-drinking character.

Wonderfully blended, balanced and brewed for a consistently clean flavor, light body and satisfying refreshment.

Natural Light was Anheuser-Buschís first reduced-calorie light beer.

330ml can - gift from VastActiv - thanks!
Pours almost invisibly, thereís a frothy foam appearing in the glass, but I donít see the stream of liquid between the can and the glass. Smells of soda water, initially. Slightly sweet corniness. Taste is watery. Feels fizzy. Tastes of the fizz, I get carbonic acid. However, thereís also an almost quite nice sweet maltiness. Initially, Iíd have given that 4 for taste, and 2 for palate, as the milky maltiness stays nicely. But the water gets more offensive over time, as does a slickness thatís totally out of place compared to the initial totally thin fizziness. An insult to beer.

While Iím in a bashing mood, lets record a rating for olí Natty Light. I hold something of a grudge against this brand because this ruined my image of beer up until I was able to branch out and realize that there was a whole world of wonderful beer out there nothing like this one. Relatively bland and overcarbonated, when I was in my age of beer jahiliyyah I thought all beer was that way. When Iíve bothered to stop and consider the taste, its actually not terrible, features some sweet corn and maybe the slightest touch of pale malt flavor. The one thing I do respect about this beer is that doesnít pretend to be something its not, all it claims to be is a cheap, more-or-less natural, and drinkable adjunct beer meant for consuming in mass quantities. I do remember from the few times Iíve bothered drinking this is that by the third or fourth round it wasnít so bad, haha.

Bottle. Tastes like sweet corn and musky malt. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like day old beer and wet beer pong floors.

Bottle. Pours pale yellow with fizzy white head. Aroma and flavor are the corn and pale malt notes expected from this type of beer. Light body and medium carbonation. Less taste than most macros which seemed to make this one more drinkable than most others.

I donít get natural light. Its better than drinking Busch I suppose, but thatís not saying too much.

Pour is nearly clear. Given this, the color in the glass is surprisingly yellow. Absolutely no head retention to speak of. Aroma is very fruity. Peach, apple, apple skin, dough, corn. Slightly sweet. Flavor is actually strange and somewhat foreign to me. Iíve drank plenty of this stuff, but not recently. Itís surprisingly less clean than I expected. Decent amounts of lightly sweet candy corn all over the front. Flavor comes and goes, but finishes pretty hollow. Slightly dryer in the finish than the start, but no sign of actual bitterness or hop character. I guess I have to say itís balanced. Lingering chemical aftertaste is off-putting. Definitely a case of off flavors having nowhere to hide. Palate is a bit greasy. Iím actually finding this less overtly disgusting than many pale lagers Iíve tasted. Nothing to enjoy about it, though.

Can into pint glass, crazy light pale yellow color with bright white head. Aroma is lacking, lightest fruity grainy note. Taste is also very trying, very light corn and even lighter grass note. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp with clean finish. Itís not that horrific, this really is what I think of with that "fíing close to water" joke. Beer for cheap people who really hate beer? Yep this will work.

Can from local market at Sunnyvale. Enjoyed straight from the can. Aromas and flavours: Corn, grain and hints of malts. Horrible.

Drank at the Boegemans. Pours light gold. Hard to differentiate from the other light lagers, but a good garbage drinker nonetheless ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
