16 oz can born on 19 Jun 14 at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma very weak rice (?)
Head large (8 cm), white, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing none
Body very light yellow, clear
Flavor pretty much none, maybe a hint of dimethylsulfide; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light, watery, lively carbonation

If you’ve got nothing else to drink, including water, this is passable.

The preferred choice of the Sigma chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon, typical selection of a funny little school in the Pioneer Valley, and sponsor of numerous Northeast pong invitationals, the light that this beer exudes is illuminating, inspiring, and transcendent. I can hear the sound of ping pong balls bouncing, rugby boys cheering, and most girls shivering in disgust at the sweet nectar of the most natural of all lights. Though most often served cold, chillingly so, best results for quantifiably high and speedily fast consumption was to be found with in the room temperature, less than 24 hour-old, battered keg version.

It appeared like urinary matter, smelled like the room it was served in, tasted like hopefully nothing if you drank it fast enough, felt like a cold bubbly stomach and gastro-intestinal problem, but it drank well if you didn't know any better, and was too busy getting down to try to.

Sixth category: Memories - grand salad days but never again.

Natural Light is one of those beers with sentimental value to me...the first beer I have tasted perhaps, it is still the most common beer that I see people drink, obviously due to its price...I have found Natural Light to be so unbearable for me now a days that even on a 90 degree day on the beach with 100% humidity I find myself turning down Natty...Sad, but everyone has to grow up I suppose

Appearance- Piss Water
Smell- Piss
Taste- None
Mouthfeel- Water
Overall- Perfect to clean your toilet with. Looking back on my 18 year old self i realize why we drank this. But now i want to smack myself in the head, if you want to go cheap, get some high life.

Pours with a very light golden hue and good luck getting much of a head. No lace whatsoever. It has almost no taste and water is the main flavor....exciting. But for college students who need quantity over quality it's a good choice....either that or a retro-college party with some friends which you'll regret it the morning. Avoid at all costs.
