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.
