This just another low flavor, high popularity brew. Very blow average as far as macro-lagers go. You can find better beers in the same price range than this one. Fizzy rice-water taste to start with, little head retention (should you even want to pour this type of beer into a glass), and no aroma to speak of. Sorry, but this one's no good.

Milwaukee's Best Light reminds me very much of Michelob Ultra in body and texture. With a flavor palette not unlike club soda this beer isn't enjoyable to drink in a wine tasting-like setting but clearly that isn't the point here. It's pretty heavily carbonated and there isn't much flavor to speak of. The only place to drink this is at a raging party and of course it does excel at that.

So go ahead, shottie these all through the night with your friends, but don't expect an actual good beer just to drink for the sake of enjoying beer while sessioning or otherwise. This is a social beer, plain and simple and there's nothing wrong with that.

Very clear light gold color, looked flat,few bubbles no head,a little whiff of malt and hop at the beginning, turned to a sour corn smell quickly.Thin adjunct malt taste,just a hint of sweetness all which evaporate quickly. Gave it a couple points because it had no aftertaste rather than a bad aftertaste. it sure says a lot about this nation that this beer is so popular
