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."

Budweiser light.

The look of it: well light the Budweiser, same thing. Very light with lots of carbonation.

The smell of it. Pretty much nothing but, you have a bit of cornyness to it.

The taste of it : There is no taste to that beer. This is a peace of crap right here. After I drink that and I went back to a Budweiser I thought like damn this Budweiser taste good.

So overall would I recommend it ? F*** No !! This is a peace of s***.

Brilliant straw color. 1 finger head lasting a minute.

Bitter flavors of corn and slightly sugary. Almost no taste.

Light body with excessive carbonation. No personality.

Overall : Fresh dirty water.

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.
