Pours a very clear yellow, with not a lot of effervescence.

Smell really isn't there. There is a smell of something, but not much.

First sip is mellow. Is this beer? Yes. Then again, that depends on your definition of beer.

Let me rephrase that, a McDonalds hamburger is still considered a hamburger. In its essence, it IS a hamburger. It has beef, it has condiments, it has two buns. But is it something that you'd personally feel good about showing off to ones friends as ones life contribution to society? No, no you wouldn't.

I'd have to say that there are two ideas about success that exist in the world of beers today. One says that the best quality beers will fill what niches they will, and that their qualities in ingredients make them the best. The other says that that the beer that the most people drink is the best drink around. Bud Light has succeeded in one of these categories. I doubt if it could ever succeed in both.

I doubt that Burger King or McDonalds will ever make a burger worth a five star restaurant, and I doubt that Anheuser-Busch will ever turn Bud Light into anything more than a beer for the masses of those who have no idea what real quality beer should taste like, but that should not take away in the least from what AB has accomplished. Hopefully, the world will change someday to make what they have done irrelevant.

Please, let it be soon.
