1.53/5  rDev -16.8%
look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

And because I'm a masochist, here's Bud Light. 18 oz bottle poured into a glass.

A: Pours a light straw color that's clear as sin. Head retention isn't as pitiful as I expected, as there's still a nice film of white head 30 seconds later. There's even a little lacing on the glass, what gives?! WHY ARE YOU SO SEMI-GOOD AESTHETICALLY, BL?!?!

S: What smell?

T: Aside from a little cotton candy/cooked corn sweetness, there's really no flavor to speak of here. At least it's not skunked, I suppose.

M: Light. Watery. Fizzy. Bloaty. Blech.

O: Proof positive that millions of rednecks from the South can be very, very wrong. I was ready to say how it wasn't THAT horrid, right up until it gave me a slight headache. Yeesh.

Score wise, this is as low as I'll ever go without giving this to Drain, because as much as I dislike it, it IS very drinkable (even with all of its pus-filled carbuncles), due to being so similar to carbonated water. And, it's not quite as terribad as BL Platinum. So celebrate those two merits Bud Light, because that's all I'm giving you tonight.
