BLP literally tastes like regular Bud Light with an infused metallic taste that I couldn't shake. I have no idea how some casual drinkers find this to actually be an improvement over Bud Light or Budweiser but these people seem to think that its ABV of 6% makes it superior. They're all poor excuses for beer and BLP is probably the worst of them. Luckily I tried it for free from a friend and I would recommend absolutely not wasting your hard-earned money on this garbage.

Poured from a blue bottle into a pint glass.

Beer pours a straw yellow color with a bit of fizzy head.

Beer has no great smells. Mainly of corn.

Beer tastes very sweet. Tons of more flavor than Bud Light, which isn't saying much. Very strong corn taste.

Mouthfeel is thin and heavy carbonated.

Much better than Bud Light, I could see getting this from time to time instead of a Coors Light or similar.

Appearance: light yellow, no head.

Smell: Sweet malt, corn.

taste: Sweet malt liquor.

Mouthfeel: Thin and watery, has an ok carbonated stinginess.

Malt liquor has an extremely offensive taste to me. This beer has a mild malt liquor taste. If it were a malt liquor, it would be the best I've ever had. I've had a lot worse beers, but this is still bad. For a cheap 6.0 abv beer, this isn't too horrible.
