A- pours a very pale yellow, crystal clear with small fizzy white head, no lace.

S- cereal grains, that's about it. Nearly nothing there.

T- grains, a bit of husk and corn. Very faint hop and malt is barely noticable.

M- over carbonated like seltzer water, Light bodied and fizzy. Finishes dry.

O- AB has most of the country convinced that this is what beer is supposed to taste like. That's too bad, because this stuff is bottom shelf compared to what is available today. I don't remember the last time I purchased a Bud Light and intend to keep it that way.

look: 1.75 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.75

Appearance - Pale yellow with a frothy 1/2 inch off-white head.

Aroma - Not much going on in terms of smell. Slight grain/corn along with a little bit of metal from the can.

Taste - Similar to the aroma, not much in terms of taste. Again, slight grain/corm.

Mouthfeel - Light body with a bit of carbonation.

Overall - Tastes like carbonated water.
