Natural Light is brewed with a blend of premium American and imported hops, and a combination of malt and corn. Its longer brewing process produces a lighter body, fewer calories and an easy-drinking character.

1.98/5  rDev +18.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

A - Pale yellow, clear, with about a finger of head that disappears quickly into nothing.

S - Almost non-existant. Weak metallic aroma, with a slight DMS character.

T - Again, not much there. There's a brief sweetness mid palate followed by a metallic finish, but both are weak at best.

M - Carbonation is a little lower and the body is a little heavy for the style.

D - I grabbed one of these from my buddy's fridge the other night specifically for the purpose of rating it...I honestly don't know how he plans to get through the other 11.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a can into a stein glass.

Look - very pale straw-like color with about 2 fingers of white foam that dissipates somewhat quickly. Decent carbonation.

Smell - smells very acrid and not well-mixed. Maybe a funky malt base, but I can't tell anything more from that.

Taste and Mouthfeel - less pungent than the smell. Mostly tasteless actually. Slight bitterness in the middle, but that fades quickly. Mostly just not very tasteful at all. Texture is pretty watery.

Overall - mostly a "meh" beer. It doesn't really taste like anything at all, but the smell was pretty bad. I'd avoid this if you want to actually taste and smell something.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

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.

look: 1 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1 | overall: 2

Stale yellow coloring with no head whatsoever. A strong alcoholic watery aroma that is as inviting as a public bathroom stall. Watery taste with smooth floral notes initially evolves into a stale drink aftertaste. Weak carbonation of a mouthfeel that doesn't balance well with the uninteresting taste. A feeble attempt for a beer but an American College legend nonetheless.
