this is rotten stuff almost every single time, in any format, from any location. ive somehow not reviewed this until now, although ive ranted about it constantly. not just for its low quality, but for its social position and politics, both of which I cannot tolerate at all. I did manage to have this fresh at the brewery though, and must confess that in that context, it is passable, albeit as a light adjunct brew, it didn't have its usual skunky metallic profile. in normal format though, this is swill I wont even usually touch. pee yellow, very fizzy, and tasting like anything but good fresh beer. I marvel at how millions of people consider this the good stuff, and how much profit it generates for its creators. to me, I would rather not drink honestly. the amount of these it would take me to get drunk is sickening, and hopefully I wont embark on that mission anytime soon. aren't they in a lawsuit for having watered this down? watering down water, that's a laugh...

Drank straight from a 355ml can
A: I split the can with my grandfather so i did get a look at it. Pale straw color topped with a one finger head. Retention was mild and lacing actually wasn't bad.
S: I couldn't get anything out of the can but perhaps thats not fair as most of my other reviews have been out of a bottle.
T: Very adjuncty. By this I mean the flavors of rice and it seemed like there was corn even though Bud doesn't claim to use it. Fairly sweet and watery with absolutely no hop flavor or bitterness to be found. Very plain but nothing really disgusting in it.
M: Crisp and goes down easily. Very fizzy and almost seltzer like to an extent.
O: It's just a Bud light at the end of the day. I'm not going to say it was awful because really it wasn't. I feel like too many craft nerds like to rip on bud when it reality its not bad in flavor profile its just absent. Probably would never buy it but if offered it I have no real problem with it.
