Ahhh....good old Bud Light. My old college roommate used to guzzle gallons of this stuff in search of the perfect state of alcohol-induced nirvana. I'd crack one open once in a while, especially if I was out of one of my brews at the time, but I never made a habit of acquiring the Bud Light taste.
Gotta admit that this is one marketing monster, though. Bud Light is easily the biggest selling beer in Texas. You simply can't go anywhere here (bar, barbecue joint, wedding, ice house, etc.) without seeing someone standing around with a cold bottle of Bud Light in his or her hand. I recently tried some at a wedding, as it was the only thing available. It brought back the memories for sure.
Bud Light was sparkling and clear in the glass, very well-carbonated and somewhat watery looking. Average nose, again a bit watery and weak.
There is almost nothing to recommend for the taste criteria. This is easily the least "beer-tasting" entry in the annals of light beers. Nothing. Nada. No malt backbone to speak of, no hops, no NOTHIN'. This was like drinking water with a small amount of beer mixed in.
Effervescent mouthfeel. Not drinkable at all. I finished the glass that I had, and stuck to water the rest of the night, barely noticing any difference.
It's easy to see why this beer is so popular, though. Let's face it, there are tons of people who really don't like the taste of beer, yet they want to maintain the image that they are beer drinkers. This is perfect for them. They can maintain the illusion that they like beer, AND get the easily quaffed alcohol delivery system that they crave. Not a bad deal.
Pass it up. There are plenty of better light beers on the market if you have to go there.

Its an easy go-to beer. It's inexpensive, goes down easy, leaves no aftertaste. Not much taste, but it works. Its a beer you can go to whenever. Never a bad time for a bud light. Its not a special beer or anything like that, but its a good light beer. Not my favorite, but I've got no complaints. I can easily drink bud light anytime.

Classic American beer. If you don't know what to order at a bar, with a Bud Light you can't go wrong. You can find this beer at almost every bar. It is light in color and goes down smooth. The after taste isn't too bad and you can drink a lot without getting too full

i am not a big fan of lite or light beers as the spelling depends on the beer.
i bought bud light because i have all ready tried everything cheap and this mini mart that wasn't a mikes hard shit or four loko. so at least it's better than that i guess.
its pours thin and yellow
tastes super adjucty, corn and rice and i got a really weird chemical taste like rubber or plastic . gross!
and the big surprise isn't that i didn't like this beer the suprise is that i just had tried natural light and it tastes way superior which is funny natural light is cheaper bud light is actually expensive .
if you must get a light beer i say natural light
or rolling rock but not dos equis that shit is not worth the money , for me i like genesee
im not buyijg bud light ever again the regular budweiser is bad enough but its 5.0% so its it's worth it and it's not that bad .
bud light for frat boys and girls that don't know good beer....
