See review of Budweiser. This is beer for washing down hot dogs at a ball game, nothing more and nothing less. I've never met a beer I didn't like, there are just varying degrees of amiability. Bud Light is like an acquaintance I don't mind getting drunk with once a year.

A: crystal clear; pale straw in color; less than a 1 finger white head that receded quickly to a thin collar; no lacing;

S: bready, light malts;

T: pale malt and corn sweetness all the way; very mild bitterness on the finish;

M: light bodied; medium to high carbonation; dry finish;

O: I don't personally like the style, but for what this is, it's well made;

Great barbecue joint, but I wish they had more than Bud., Corona, and Bud. Light. Here goes:

A: Fizzy yellow, little head and no lacing. At least the carbonation is good.

S: Corn, some barley. Mostly corn, though.

T: Corn with some barley at the back of the palate. Mostly corn, though. Very watery.

F: Too watery.

O: Bleh.

I wish this wasn't produced. This is the garbage people try and then think "oh I don't like beer." This isn't beer.

I actually don't find this to be a terrible beer. It's nothing good by any means, but it's not bad. Definitely better than the regular version. However, there are handfuls upon handfuls of better alternatives.
