I give it credit for what it is, a very drinkable and refreshing beer for when your say... drinking with people who don't care what they're drinking. Its the cheapest beer i'll buy. Doesn't have a lot of taste, but its very drinkable. Almost anyone will accept a bud light and willingly drink it.

Looks great, but not a lot of taste but very drinkable and pretty much everyone will drink it.

very upset that I was brain washed by this "beer" company into believing that this was the only choice of beer. Rice is not a beer ingredient.

Tastes like fizzy water with a hint of malt and skunk.

its a diet beer, for the style it is not great. It is unbalanced, you can taste the alcohol, I believe that derives from the adjuncts used.

This is truly the gold standard of fizzy American light lager.

Not a great style, but definitely a great example of the style.
