Nobody seems to mention that the way American "light" beers are brewed is that they remove a LOT of the alcohol in order to reduce the caloric content. This is the whole American "point" for a "light" beer. it's American "diet beer" -- And just like diet soda, it has most of the life drained out of it.

"Diet beer" -- with reduced alcohol. Women in pubs realize they can drink this stuff and not end up riding home unconscious with a total stranger. *LMAO*

This ties with it's big brother as my least favorite beer of all time.
I made the mistake of having both of these at a Graduation party...it had been a while....for good reason.
Just horrible all around. Diluted pissy yellow. Fizzy, artificial head. Faint skunked aroma. Adjuncts on the taste buds.

Bud products are the only beers I have every encountered that give me near-instant headaches.
Stupid of me to even try, I will continue to avoid like the plague.
