Bud Light, like its “heavyweight” partner Budweiser, has a very light color and active carbonation with very little head retention. The nose isn’t as pungent as with regular Budweiser, giving Bud Light a more appealing appearance based on these initial attributes.

The taste of Bud Light features the taste of light grains, a small amount of rice, and a light, smooth body that makes it easily drinkable and generally acceptable. The flavor is a little sweeter than regular Budweiser and there is little bitterness in the finish. Anheuser- Busch claims it uses quality hops but they are used so sparingly that they add little to the overall taste and keep the beer on the sweet side. The overall flavor profile is bland, but inoffensive.

Far from being a great product, Bud Light is a versatile beer that most anyone will find acceptable. I generally don’t go for light beers but among the macro lights, Bud Light ranks as one of my favorites. It is also one of the few light beers that I like better than the regular beer.
