Served in a pub glass from a bottle.
Very pale straw yellow color, very clear filtered look
no aroma noted
water like very light bodied
taste and looks like water.... no aroma... no head... i hear its very hard to make though and they get it the same every time... i guess that is one positive... oh and they do have good commercials!!!

Presentation: 12 oz clear glass twist off bottle, definitely a more expensive bottle being that it has the look of broken ice above and below the label rather tha a run of the mill brown bottle. “Born On” date on the side of the label.
Appearance: Pale yellow colour with an obvious clarity that is brought on by extended conditioning as well as ultra cold filtering. The head leaves nothing much at all other than a thin slowly dissolving white lace.
Smell: Neutral yet cloying corn and grain sweetness with a processed lager twang, relatively clean aroma all in all.
Taste: Very light in body with a straight up dryness from the get go. Clean on the palate, light smoothness and a big splash of crispness. Malt flavour is very thin with mild yet strained cereal grain flavours. Hops give a weak but quick bit of bitterness, nothing if the form of hop flavour and the bitterness is hastily to leave. Faded graininess is scrawny and tired. As soon as those flashes of flavour come through they fade to nearly nothing just as fast. After taste is virtually clean and gives little remnants that beer was ever in the mouth other than a hidden alcohol that slowly warms the body.
Notes: Not much there at all, take Bud Light and Bud Ice and meld them together. Not much difference at all, no point in drinking Bud Light or Bud Ice if this is around. That is not much consolation is it …

This thing smells better than its cousins, but don't be fooled. Near clear yellow fizz with a white head. Aroma is nice and sweet, like canned corn or frosted flakes. Sugary corn-water that is supposed to get you drunk faster. Just drink more Bud Light faster and avoid this corny mess.

Wow, can't believe they still make this. One of my underage drinking mainstays out in South Carolina. Anyways, light, very light yellow color, with a problem with clarity for such a beer. Largely absent beer smells in the aroma, mostly watered down fusel alcohol and corn smell.
Kind of a sweeter edge in the taste, everything is pretty thin, except for the boozy edge to it. Hopping, malt, not really existing in a significant enough manner to warrant a further discussion. Adjuncts frozen and scraped beer.
What's the point when you only end up at 4% abv? A session ice light beer? Well, "we'll let marketing worry about that."

This is a beer that is not as good as it's Bud Ice brother. The mouthfeel was borderline repulsive but it did go down easy...maybe because of the taste. But i guess if you like light ice beers it might be good for you. If something else is available on the menu however, I would suggest trying them over this beer.

This beer is so non-descript as to beg the question: Why? Mine was very cold and that further eliminated any discernable character, but I seriously doubt even at 10 degrees warmer there would be much. Why? Not being a scientist I really can't say for sure, however being a beer lover I can say that it is brewed from too much corn and not enough adjunct grains. Also, there is no discernable hop profile here...So little, if any, hops were imparted to this pedestrian brew. Again...Why?

Poured into a pint glass it was not terrible, had a nice light golden color and a smooth, even carbonation level I could see through the crystal clear glass. Decently done. Unfortunatly that is where the fun ended as light corn, musky wet hay and just a mess took over from there. Not cool at all. Too light and way overcarbonated, the cold only served to mask what was a near putrid flavor. Wet corn and grass, week old clippings and a mess of grain. Just nothing redeeming here at all.
Overall I could see why this is is the top ten worst beers, wow. .79 could have been spent on gum.

Going to make this one short. Drank a few the other day, and they were almost tasteless. Appearence was, yellow, slight head, fizzy and non chalant. Smell was just not there. Taste was lack luster and almost like water. Mouthfeel is light and easy to kick one back. Drinkability is decent due to the light carbonation and taste.
I would never drink one of these again.
