Oh come on. You can't be serious. This is not beer. It a "beer like product". This has to be half rice syrup. They only use enough malt to provide the needed enzymes for the lager yeast to live I bet.
This is perhaps the best example of what advertising can do. People are led to believe they can stay slim by drinking this crap. That's how they sell so much. Otherwise folks would never buy this swill.
Headache in a bottle is what it is.
Here goes.
A: Light yellow, carbonated with no head retention or lacing.
S: What smell?. Oh can't identify the smell as beer related.
T: Hideous and week as a beer type "product".
M: Like water except thinner.
D: Undrinkable to anyone who knows the first thing about beer.
The only thing this "beverage" has in common with beer is that it's fermented I bet. Even that could be faked here along with the hops substitute.
The yugo of the beer world. Makes me ashamed to admit this is made in America. Pity.

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....
