Bud light was one of the first beers I started drinking about 10 years ago. I never knew what beer was suppose to be like or if this was what all other beers competed against to the public. man was I wrong. I soon discovered other flavors, aromas, and depth in beers that bud light didn't offer. Although I do enjoy darker beers now I got to say bud light still holds a place in my heart. lets be real you can grab a 30pk at times for $16 during a major holiday or sporting event. Even if it doesn't hold up to other beers I'm sure it will be around for a long time to come. family and friends enjoy this pilsner beer and when its around I wont hesitate to grab one. cheers!

Pours a clear, pale golden straw color with visible carbonation and a one finger, frothy white head that quickly settles into a lasting ring.  Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.

Bland aroma with a subtle crisp hop presence along with grass, straw, pale malt grain and corn.  The adjuncts aren't as offensive as others in the style, light or otherwise.  Still pretty bland/boring.

Light body with a crisp hop presence that is immediately countered by an unpleasant, lingering metallic adjunct character.  Some crisp, grassy hop flavor but it's killed off by hints of metal, corn and rice.  The adjuncts realy overpower what could be a decent tasting light lager.  The pale malts and hops are obliterated by the offensive lingering flavors.
