Smooth and refreshing but tasteless. If you like beer with flavor don't bother. I might prefer natural light. Haha

Born on date: 6/9/12 (1st review)

Re-reviewed born on date: 08/31/12 (2nd review) - worse than my ratings overall compared to my first review...

Very, very pale yellow body with no real head after the pour, only a weak, light ring of white foam on top of the beer body. Thin hint of grain in the aroma. Watered down grain and corn flavor, evenly balanced with a barely perceptible hop bitterness. Body feels like nearly-flat soda water; clean, dry finish.

Barely a step above weak soda water. In fact, I'd rather drink a nice, cold glass of ice water over having this beer. I wonder what the Budweiser marketing folks mean by the "superior drinkability" label on the bottle? Superior to plain water? Perhaps; there is a low alcohol content that may be a draw over plain H2O. Superior to drinking a flavorful beer? No way! One of the primary reasons I try and drink so many beers near and far is for classic beer flavors and new and interesting twists which so many creative, thinking brewers come up with. If low alcohol and barely perceptible taste are what you're looking for, then Bud Light is the beer for you...

Let's face it, this beer has very little taste (more like flavored water), and is marketed for girls who don't like the taste of beer. You are paying for the name and marketing. If you paid for taste, this stuff would be almost free. This is basically an image beer.
