DATE TASTED: February 8, 2014... GLASSWARE: 22 oz. pilsner...OCCASION: watching the Olympics and feeling patriotic enough to review a true American product... APPEARANCE: lackluster pale gold body with reasonably lively effervescence; thin white head; tentacle smears of lacing... AROMA: tin, corn, and sweet syrup--slightly candied and demonstratively sweet... PALATE: light, as advertised--cold, crisp, watery presence, with slight carbonation ...TASTE: nearly tasteless--what does rear up its head isn't ugly, just metallic, beefy and rinsing... OVERALL: New Year's resolution: trying to spend less time babbling about subpar macros in these annuls; simple fact is, this beer's ubiquity cannot justify its smirk-inducing, blasé product that masquerades its way through billion-dollar ad campaigns; remember the penguin ads? THIS BEER is the thing In the house I am most nervous about finding....

Bud Light is a Light Beer. This beer is brewed by Anheuser Busch. with an abv of 4.2. Light Amber Color lighter than Budweiser. Taste is smooth not much here just smooth. The smell is a light beer smell not much here. Over all a good drinking beer on a hot day.

It's Bud Light - I only bought a 40 (at an outrageous 3.09) because I am a collector of 40 ounce bottles and needed the newest design. The beer itself hasn't changed much over the years.

A - Pours a very pale yellow with a weak almost non-existent head.

S - Some grains and adjuncts - no hop note at all.

T - It doesn't taste bad because it has almost no taste.

M - Very thin.

O - It's drinkable. It has no character whatsoever though. I can't rate it too "poor" because there are much worse lower alcohol light beers out there.
