Pours the color of yellow straw with an abundant white head. The head dissipates after a few sips, but it leaves some head lacing on top. Not much lacing is left on the glass. There are plenty of streaming bubbles coming from the bottom of the glass, indicating abundant carbonation. It looks like a typical American adjunct lager. The aromas are not very strong, but I pick up some sweetness. I don't pick up much else.
I had this ice cold. There isn't much of a hops presence in this beer, but it is there. I pick up flavors of adjuncts that tend to override the taste of the light barley malt, which is there. It's slightly sweet and the flavor is pretty clean and crisp overall if not a bit thin. This is about what you'd expect from a light lager because you know you're not getting a full flavored beer. Some of the flavors homogenize as it warms up, so you want to drink this pretty quickly. The mouthfeel is very light and somewhat watery. It's the sort of mouthfeel you'd expect with a light lager.
Light lagers are not my favorite style, but every beer deserves a fair review. It's not an awful beer by any means, but it's not a good beer either. It's below average and there are better, less expensive brands of light lagers. If you like light lagers, you could do better than Bud Light.
