Budweiser might be the professional level king of beers, but this old grizzled war veteran of gettin hammered is collegiate level king of beer. To get the most out of this you gotta have it at room temperature, then pour into a big ole Solo party cup and start playin for a good ole time. If rated below a B you must have not had a good time at college, sorry you missed out.

Initial thought: Incredible. Delicious is the first word that comes to mind. Drinkability, ya know like chug-ability. The ability to chug. Fountain of youth type hydration. Relinquishes thirst like a common niagara fall in a can.

A-Caramel apple jesus piss type color. Sort of like the red sea turns keystone type feel.

S-Smells like the first breath of fresh unraped oxygen when you get out of a state penitentiary.

T-Fresh squeezed god nectar from the garden of eden. The snake really was too drunk to pick out the right tree and picked a stupid apple instead of a fresh delicious keystone light.

M-Wide mouth for extra drinkability like a virgin blowjob with a drop-jaw which eventually turns into a lock-jaw am I right woop woop hell yeah yum yum keystone 4 the win.

O-Damn good.

One of the best cheap beers on the market if your like me and enjoy tasteless watered down brew. You can't just drink one. Excellent on a hot day in the trailer park!

This tastes like watered down Coors Light.

A-gold with white head, doesn't last long

Smells like coors

A. Golden yellow color. Decent carbonation. Minimal head

S. Not to bad for a light beer.

T. Has enough beer taste to be noticed as beer, but you go one with a beer taste, another with water.

M. High carbonation. Refreshing finish.

D. At a party drink all you can. At home sit back and enjoy your $14 thirty pack.

Final Thoughts: This is my party beer. For as cheap as it is, a very draikable good beer. Not my typical style but inexpensive and easy to drink. Not to mention, it tastes good. My favorite light beer.

Coors had originally been considered only a banquet beer. Wanting to get a lager share of the blue collar market they researched bringing a new beer on the market. It was there sole intent to garner that part of demographics.

However, they needed to consider two important factors. The first and most important was the financial aspect. What was it going to cost them to bring this product to market. Then a greater concern, was would the consumer like it? The problem was easily solved. The powers that be, asked what is our now most profitable brew? The answer was the “Silver Bullet,” better established as Coors Light.

There was no need for addition infrastructure. The equipment was in place and not running at full capacity. Rather than run silver cans down the line, just put some blue ones in.

Blind fold a Coors fan and offer hin a glass of Coors Light and a glass of Keystone. I will give you Las Vegas odds that they cannot distinguish the difference. There is none, only that keystone is more affordable. The best part is that you will save about 23%.

PS. Daughter worked for Coors Market Development about 20 years ago. Her insider info helped me pay off her college education.

This is my go to beer. Its cheap, it tastes good, and did I mention, its CHEAP? I like the taste. Alot of people do not like it, because its so light in color, but for the price it can't be beat! I keep this stuff in my beer fridge at all times. Don't get me wrong, if I had the money, there are ALOT of other beers out there that I would rather drink, but this one is the one I can afford, so I like it.

Easy drinking smooth, simple, light beer. I personally like Keystone light. Its very crisp and refreshing. Rating it on what it is, an american light beer, its one of the best you can get.

The number of cans of this beer I have had numbers in the thousands. I will never drink another single beer more in my life than this one. For that reason, they must be doing something right and I have to give it a 4.0. This is a legend of a beer that will be around colleges for a very long time.
