In 100% seriousness. If you still think Bud Light or Budweiser, or Miller or Coors is the pinnacle of beer, you are completely missing out. Please please please please please get out and try something better. And I say this because these giant were intentionally founded to brew boring beer. Why is that you ask? Well because follow prohibition it was the surest way to rapidly expand and dominate a beerless America. So they are boring, and they're counting on you loving that, which is why i again encourage you to strive for more interesting recipes.

It's not bad. I'll completely enjoy one at a ball game from one of those gallon plastic cups. But it's as basic as it can possibly be. It is as good as mutton is to prime rib. I cannot urge you enough to expand your horizons if Bud Light is currently as good as it gets for you.

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....
