Bright yellow color with with a one finger fluffy head with low retention.
Aroma is a bit sour with notes of lemon and corn.
Although the aroma is quite unpleasant, flavor is a bit better. Sweet flavor of corn, floral hops, some mild oxidation. Dry and mildly bitter aftertaste.
Watery body with medium carbonation.
Although the aroma is far from nice, flavor is not utterly unpleasant; still I wonder how I could drink this when I was a teenager.

Let's all step back from our beer snobery here and realize this beer for what it is - it's Bud Light, for pete's sake.

Of course it cannot compete with a myriad of brews that we all enjoy. But it is a staple session beer, and it does just fine. If I have indulged a bit too quickly in some craft imperial porter or double IPA, switching lanes and grabbing myself a bud light isn't such a bad idea.

This isn't meant to be a craft beer or anything special, and lord knows it is not. But it is what it is - I enjoy and appreciate it for being a fallback when the craft and micros get a wee bit too heavy.

In fact, I'm drinking one right now after indulging in Upland's Infinite Wisdom Tripel....
