Bud Light... guy i play hockey with usually brings these for drinking afterwards when anything would be drinkable. he tossed me a couple and i only finished one, put the other in my hockey bag to later fully assess this brew... i can honestly say i've never bought a bud light before, even with all the free t-shirt offers!

A: light, pale yellow. fast vanishing white head, virtually no lace.

S: sweet adjunct corn and grainy smell. not very strong smelling thank goodness. not skunky

T: uhm, tasted like the can might've leaked some metal into it, likely a production thing, but i'm not going to go out and get a bottle to see if it'd make a difference because i doubt it. it's not bitter, there's a slight bit of hops mixed with an easier detectable grainy taste. low on taste, high on fizz.

M: once the fizz is gone its very thin. one notch above feeling like water... as much as i love drinking water, this is supposed to be a beer.

D: it's drinkable/tolerable, but i'd need to be very, very thirsty.

sum up: they'd need to really entice me with some kind of value apart from the drink, like a free rapala crankbait and half-price, for me to consider buying it, definately a purchase for the 'lost' friends i've got and not for personal consumption.

final thoughts:

yet another yard work beer that can fall off the garden tractor without hard feelings.

Serving type: can

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
