Truly the lightest colored beer I've ever seen, damn near colorless. Faint whiff of diluted husky grain. Literally nothing else going on in this beer, except a light canned corn aftertaste. All marketing, and clearly it has been successful since this stuff seems to be gaining a foothold.

Served from a 12oz metal bottle and consumed directly from it. Honestly I felt no need to serve it in a glass and did not have one on me anyways.

A: I cannot give an exact appearance because it was drank from the bottle. But I'm assuming pale straw color from all the other advertisements I've seen.

S: From the bottle it's pretty scentless. If one wanted to really delve into specifics some rice could perhaps be detected.

T: Rather watery and tasteless. The only real memorable taste separating it from water is wet white rice. Even then it is not very evident and could easily slip past someone who doesn't have an affinity for sampling craft. Bitterness is really not present but neither is it to sweet so I will give it that.

M: Fizzy but clean and leaves little aftertaste. This could be because there was no real initial taste.

O: Not my kind of beer. It was offered to me by a friend and to me free beer is good beer. One should never be a big enough snob to turn down a new and free beer.While I would never purchase this it was inoffensive and I could see a lot of Bud regulars buying it for the cool looks and higher alcohol. I should also add that "Bud Light" and the beer being 6% is intriguing. I was able to drink two and could easily drink a few more but that does not make a beer good IMO.
