This is a bad beer. But to me it's like watching Plan 9 from outer space, its so bad that it's enjoyable in a weird way. I don't think that it's good but when it's ice cold and its put in from of you it's a great time to exclaim "screw it" and throw one back.

The worst beer I've ever had. Tastes just like it costs. So flat and absolutely no flavors other than a little corn. Would only recommend if you didn't have enough money for a better beer.

4/16/15 (Can) - Very pale white pour, minimal head, carbonation or scent. Taste very light, some hops and corn. Feels very easy going down, like ice cold water on a warm summer day. OK offering if you are staying light.

The finest of historical lagers, found myself a 2007 vintage that my wife surprisingly cellared for me. She made the pour perfectly with just the right amount of light head.

Notes of the Smoky Mountains, and so cold my nipples could cut glass.

Would highly recommend on a special occasion.

Blind taste test out of 7 AALs, this was easily the worst. Metallic, watery, terrible finish.

A: Crystal clear straw color with large white head from aggressive pour no lacing

S: Almost non existent I get a little of the typical lager smell.

T: Very plain almost like a beer flavored water. Little grain and metallic taste.

M: Watery

O: Only reason I gave it a 2 was because it is so cheap and widely available but everything else is poor at best.

The worst thing I've ever put in my mouth. I'd rather drink piss. Even bud and coors are far better. And that's saying a lot

Pros: You can get a 30 pack of these at the local gas station for $18. The taste isn't very strong, thus is probably little better than Bud Light.

Cons: You will need to drink all 30 of these before you get any kind of a buzz at all. Hell, you can probably drink all 30 of them on the way home and not hit the legal limit. Then I question what's the point of drinking a light beer at all when one imperial stout has a fraction of the calories as 30 of these...

Might have overrated it a little but here is why:
Busch Light is cheap as hell
It doesn't have much flavor and isn't too carbonated making it easy to drink fast and get messed up.
Not a good beer but its easy to drink and cheap and I find myself buying it often

Better than Bud Light and cheaper. I find it refreshing and enjoyable.

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

Pours a golden color with thick head thinning to a lace. Smells like fermented corn vomit. Goes down pretty smooth with surprisingly hoppy and bitter, and a little dry. Not bad overall. One of the better light beers.

Buy this at the gas station. It isn't expensive, and still beats bud light in my blind taste test, buddy gave me both of them. Ice cold this is really refreshing. goes down like water. I see all the ones and twos on here, and i kind of wonder what its being compared to. The price is right and when you go fishing or are at a barbeque its really good for those occasions.

Its a cheap beer that doesn't overpower your pallet on a hot day. This is especially true if you're picking up a 30 pack from an Oklahoma gas station (where the beer is 3%). Whether your eating dinner and you don't know what beer to pair with it or on the way to working outside/ playing outside/ playing cards or watching a game, try saying that about your most top rated beer.

Although it will never win a taste contest, based on its "crispness" this one's a staple in my beer diet.

Ah, the ignorance of childhood. I remember my friend's mom used to buy this in bulk for us when I was in High School. Didn't care then. Just wanted to get drunk. Nowadays, you would not get me drinking this no matter how many other beers I've already had. The slightest taste of watery piss swill makes me nauseous now. Whether it's Natty, Keystone or this A-B abomination doesn't matter. Save your money for half decent beer. Leave this for frat houses and shitty moms to buy for their kids and their friends.

Had this one at a BBQ as this was the only choice available. Busch Light is a horrible beer that has no flavor whatsoever. The beer pours a light yellow, and it has barely any head. Busch is one of those beers that isn't worth trying as the taste is very watery, having a glass of water afterwards, you wouldn't even tell the difference. As a light beer, it's not a beer I would recommend, stick with a PBR instead.
