Drinking budweiser is one thing , but bud light? Why? Well it was the only beer in my fridge ( left by someone) . Poured a watery , crystal clear and oh so pale yellow. Large head as a result of me takening out my aggression , (caused by no better beer) by pouring as fast and hard as possible! Smell is lightest of malt and adjunct. Taste is same , not much of anything to describe. Mouthfeel like water with a shot of beer in it. It is very drinkable... out of a funnel.

I had this on tap at a party. I drank it in a pint glass.

Taps an incredibly light straw with a one finger head of white bubbles. The head evaporated quickly to a ring aroung the glass. There was no lacing. Looks fizzy.

I cam smell light DMS and faint raw grain. No hops whatsoever. That's about it.

The flavor is, well, it's wet and carbonated! A very slight raw grain flavor comes through late. The aftertaste is very short and chalky dry.

The only thing you can feel in your mouth is fizz. It's almost like there's nothing else there. Finish is very dry.

I guess I just don't get it. This is the #1 selling beer in the U.S. It has no smell, no taste, no nothing none neither! Fizzy, watery and thin, and those are the good points.

12oz can poured into a tulip. Born on July 8, 2013.

A: Pours a very pale light yellow. Crystal clear. Some visible carbonation. Head fizzles away after 30 seconds or so.

S: Light malts come across as sort of a stenchy bread. Not very complex just feels off.

T: Goes back like water, not much flavor gets in the way between your lips and your throat. If you're looking to avoid flavor for this is for you. Does a good job at being nondescript.

M: Light body, average carbonation. Certainly the sessionability they tout.

Overall if you havent had it I'm surprised you're on this website.
