And because I'm a masochist, here's Bud Light. 18 oz bottle poured into a glass.

A: Pours a light straw color that's clear as sin. Head retention isn't as pitiful as I expected, as there's still a nice film of white head 30 seconds later. There's even a little lacing on the glass, what gives?! WHY ARE YOU SO SEMI-GOOD AESTHETICALLY, BL?!?!

S: What smell?

T: Aside from a little cotton candy/cooked corn sweetness, there's really no flavor to speak of here. At least it's not skunked, I suppose.

M: Light. Watery. Fizzy. Bloaty. Blech.

O: Proof positive that millions of rednecks from the South can be very, very wrong. I was ready to say how it wasn't THAT horrid, right up until it gave me a slight headache. Yeesh.

Score wise, this is as low as I'll ever go without giving this to Drain, because as much as I dislike it, it IS very drinkable (even with all of its pus-filled carbuncles), due to being so similar to carbonated water. And, it's not quite as terribad as BL Platinum. So celebrate those two merits Bud Light, because that's all I'm giving you tonight.

Fist off if you ding bud light just because don't waste your time reviewing. we all loathe it. It's because it's popular. From it's soda pop inspired label to its "try not to piss any one off" taste. It's truly frustrating that some people won't touch anything else. Case in point is BL Platinum. selling off the charts to the sheep who drink nothing but bud light but if they sold it as any other name it wouldn't. ok.. I've drifted enough,

Poured into a 16 oz mug. light, watery, 2 finger head quickly disappears. fizzy, no smell. watery mouth feel but that Budweiser rice smoothness. Its watered down budweiser . Its drinkable and available everywhere. Don't hate it for what it is. I hate the sheep who will drink nothing but.

Note: I review for the style. I refuse to let my prejudices slant any review. Nothing worse than the typical beer snob reviewing an AAL, same for your AAL drinker reviewing a craft brew.
