UPDATED: MAR 2, 2014 Can: This is a pretty rough drinker, thats for sure. Its 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. Its not good, its not tasty... It isnt 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 Im reaching a point where I can differentiate between the major macro lagers. Theres 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. Its 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. Its not horrible, in fact, its much more mild than it is off-putting, but theres 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 isnt it? I cant 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 thats possible.

This is a difficult beer to rate. Its drinkable, but has absolutely no character at all. On the other hand, I have had beers that were actually unpleasant, and this is not that. Just boring. Pours a crystal clear light yellow with a big white head that dissipates quickly. Almost no lacing. Little aroma, little flavor, though it is mildly sweet. Im not sure there are any hops here at all. Big carbonation. Easy to drink.

Can into pint glass like a fancy man, very clear golden color with thin white head. Aroma of grainy cereal sweetness. Taste is sweet pale malt, corn and slightest note of grass. Light body, heavy carbonation, watery with clean finish. I was expecting worse not that this sets the bar high at all. Boring pale light lager, might even be hydrating.

Very pale yellow. Thin head. Aroma is very weak, sweet corn. Weak flavour, sweet again. Nothing on the finish. Average macro lager

12oz can 12/22/13 (Local liquor store-30pk)-40 in Lager Glass-Pours a light golden with a small white head. Aroma of sweetness and grains. Taste of the same with a bit of hay on the back end. This light bodied brew is not bad but just another low calorie brew.

.99 for the 24oz. can purchased from town. Clear whitish yellow pours; quickly dispensing frothy head. Smells and tastes of LME, and a little yeastiness. Quite bland.

THE BEST BEER EVER! Hoppy, mildly complex. Great head. The taste is unrivaled. Much better than sierra nevada or weihenstephaner or even sam adams. Really Really good beer.
