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.

What is really funny is that for some years now i have been drinking this beer and within the last year or so i have been getting really into craft beers and visiting local breweries enjoying excellent beer. Having doing this i don't think i can really go back to this beer if i really tried!. It really just seems to taste like carbonated water to me. Having said this i will go ahead and rate this beer.

It pours a bright, clear golden yellow color. Lots of bubbles shooting to the top. The head doesn't really stick around. There is a very very slight malt and hop aroma to it and really isn't too
impressive. The taste is like a mentioned before which is very carbonated and very watery.

It is really hard for me to absolutely hate this beer having pretty much drank it most of my adult life but now having tasted so many excellent and shall i say "real" beers. This one is definitely at the bottom for me.
