Can of Bud Light, offered at my in-laws.
This review reflects my honest assessment of a beer within a style that isn't a favorite. And to be honest, it doesn't suck. Out right. It's only offense is that it doesn't dare to be anything.
I didn't actually pour it in a glass, so I'll assume appearance is average for style. Perhaps that means I'm not given it justice in the aroma department? There is a bit of smell that I don't know how to describe other than American macrobeer smell. No malt, no hops, just that slightly acrid smell that typifies the style, in my mind.
The taste actually did surprise me. I initially could taste some grainyness and a small amount of sweetness which is much than tasting nothing. Hops? I don't think there are any. Bitterness? Not really. Just what is imparted by the carbonation. You can only taste that grainy sweetness because there isn't anything else complex.
Mouthfeel is thin, which is the style I suppose.
Drinkability is like carbonated water. Not my favorite.

Baaaaaadddd. Straw-transparent color with white fizzy head. Bottle opened like a bottle of seltzer with the sound off psssttttt. Flavorless at first but leaves an after taste of adjuncts, corn, and veggies. Carbonation is off the charts. Its light and tasteless, making it an acceptable substitute for water (or even milk, right PETA?).

It's served in every bar in the counrty, sold in every grocery store, and has been tried by every person in America. The question is, why is something that has almost no color, no body, a taste that varies between hose water and horse urine, considered to be America's Beer? The answer, marketing. With a product that's mostly water shot through a fermentation chamber like a coffee percilator, it can be made by the billions of cans. And with this, stuff, being sold everywhere and getting unreasonable amounts of money, thay can afford commercials that brainwash people into thinking this is actually what beer is suppose to be. Sad, very sad.
It has a typical body for a light beer.
The taste can be slightly acidic at times, depending on the batch.
It has a little bit of a wheat smell, although I can only tell the smell when somebody who has had too much of this spills it onto my jeans.

Have you seen American Pie 2 when Shifler was laying back blindfolded and the girl was going to feed him champagne but was knocked out by a falling flower pot...and then the guy on the balcony relieves himself all over shiflers face?? Well, I think that drinking Bud Light is a similar experience. The taste is of a mild urine quality (I'm guessing that's what urine tastes like) with a twang of aluminum can for an aftertaste. The only nastier beer I have drank is Skol somewhere overseas. A good inbred hillbilly beer though...
