Almost no aroma and the taste is essentially watery and slightly sweet with no hop presence.

Take Budweiser, the watered down beer that helped gave North American beer a bad name for many years piss in it and drink it. That's what Bud Light tastes like. Even looks a pale, foamy light yellow like someone pissed in a glass of Budweiser...

I once pissed a mixture of Gatorade, Milk and Bud Light. I bottled the urine stream into an old Bud Light bottle and served an unexpecting ex-girlfriend. She couldn't tell the difference. I think she even got a lil krunk from it.

Typical American adjacent lager. Light smooth flavorless and not worth a full review. Decent for a camp fire or bbq if you in to watching your calorie intake.

gross, closer to seltzer water than beer. Their slogan is up for whatever because you literally have to be up for whatever to drink this

Grew up on this stuff, which is probably the only reason I ever drink it now. Good for learning, that is about it. I'd put Miller Light a bit higher.

I don't particularly drink light beer. I was given a six pack of 8 ounces bottles as a gift. It is drinkable, especially after a workout.

Great beer if your a person looking to drink a large amount and want to scrub out on a case. Good beer compared to other light beers such as miller or coors, yet nothing I would ever bring up in conversation with someone who knows anything about a good true beer with character.

Again... if your in college looking to drink a good amount for a cheap price then maybe, but in retrospect, nothing special by any means. Just another watery type brew thats sold at gas stations.

Enjoyed on tap at Breen's.

A - Poured into a pink glass a pale straw hue with a fizzy quarter inch head that faded at typical adjunct lager rate. That is, quick and fizzy.

S - Light bread and adjunct notes along with some malt sweetness. Bland.

T - Taste is pretty much identical as the nose. Wet bread, sweeter malts, cereal grains. Bland.

M - Mouthfeel is alright carbonation, crisp, watery, thin.

O - Overall, this beer is appropriate in large social gatherings watching sports games on TV. In doing that, this beer succeeds.

Serving Type: On tap

I rated slightly higher than Miller light as I preferred bud light for a while, but I'm proud to say that I no longer have any in my house.

Their tag line should be: "Why Europeans think Yanks don't understand beer."
