I normally don't review a beer in it's various packagings (bottle, can, tap, etc) unless the beer actually differs in each container.
I hear people say all the time.."Do you have X beer on draught?" and if the waitress/bartender says no, only in bottles that person will bypass that beer in favor of another choice.
Bud Light is as ubiquitous as water or Pepsi in my neck of the woods (being so close to St. Louis and all), and I actually can detect some difference in each packaging since I've downed gallons of this stuff since I was 15.
In a can, Bud Light is a very sub-par offering and on tap it's slightly better. In a bottle (and I mean actually gulped from the bottle as opposed to being poured into a glass) this beer is refreshing while being completely tasteless.
There is something to be said for not smelling this one and just pouring from the bottle into the gut. This is refreshing, but not tasty at all. Drinking from the bottle preserves the carbonation more than pouring this into a glass, and that fizzy raspy feel makes this even more like an ice cold soda-pop.
I think that this is why Bud Light is such a huge seller. Lay people (non-BAs) just want to drink something cold that gives them a buzz, and this is what Bud Light bottles are all about.

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....
