341 mL bottle from TBS; listed at 4.7% and served ice cold. This is the Canadian version, brewed here by Labatt. For a while I thought I had already reviewed this, but apparently that was Busch Light. Might as well get this out of the way while it's fresh in my memory.
Pours a pale straw yellow colour, somewhere between apple juice from concentrate and dilute urine. Generates a half inch of fizzy, bone-white head that vanishes nearly instantaneously. Yep - it's a light beer alright. Very weak aroma; corn husk and a stale beer-y aroma that reminds me of my college days. I never drank this particular beer back then, but I sure had my share of comparable stuff.
The taste isn't exactly awful, but that's largely because it barely tastes like anything. Some weak adjunct sweetness comes through... and that's pretty much it. I guess an optimist might call it crisp, clean tasting? Well, optimists and marketing staff... as for myself, 'damp cardboard' seems more apt. Thin-bodied, very fizzy, and drinks like water. In all honesty, if you're going to pound a case of something, you could do worse.
Final Grade: 2.38, a regrettable D+. Busch is alright by light beer standards (a low bar, I grant you), but it's just too bland and watery to deserve credit as anything more than that. Sorry, it just doesn't taste like anything, and one of the things I look for in my beers is flavour - yes, even the adjunct lagers. If you don't like the taste of beer, then I guess you could consider switching from Bud/Coors Light to this and maybe save a few bucks. Easy to drink en masse, but there isn't a beer drinker alive who couldn't find something better, even for inebriative purposes.

Had while at a family barbecue some time ago. The only beer I've been too disgusted by to finish. Also gave me heartburn and terrible beer farts. There are better, sometimes even cheaper things out there to drink. Negative 10 out of 5. Recommended only for those with burnt palates and survival experts surnamed Grylls.
