Pours a pale golden yellow with 1/2" of loose, bubbly, soap-like head with little retention. The smell is grainy, primarily corn. The taste is corn and grains, a little sweet, and finishes with very faint grassy hops. The mouthfeel is very light with moderate carbonation.

Overall, it's rather nondescript, but it's unoffensive. The good news is there's no metallic off flavors that are so prevalent among macros.

look: 1 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Appearance - Watered-down apple juice, or perhaps just tainted water. Looks to be about 1 part urine and 9 parts water. Keith Stone. Always water. Always.

Smell - Non-existent. Light lager-like malt if searched for. Dirty dish water.

Taste - For the people defending this and saying, "Review it for what it is!" . . . I AM reviewing it for what it is. Compared to Bud, Miller, and even Coors light; this is just downright the worst. Water sprayed with lemon pledge.

Mouthfeel and Drinkability - I'll admit it's smooth. But it tastes abysmal. Unfortunately I have eight more of these to drink.

look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Appearance- An impressive two and a half finger puffy head.It does die exceedingly fast, not even leaving lace or any film. There are furious bubbles in the hay colored glass.

Smell- Wow, stale corn, band-aid, cooked rice, and a general adjunct funk. Not appealing.

Taste: The taste is not as bad as the smell, probably because it does not taste like much of anything. There is some rice, a little bit of grassy hops and some adjunct bitterness in the finish. Most definitely it tastes watered down.

Mouth feel- It is very light and bubbly. It is not much different than water in this respect.

Overall- The really offender of this adjunct light is the smell. If you have the wits about you to hold your nose while taking a drink, consider it. Otherwise it is a typical adjunct light beer.

Water with a slight beer flavoring. It has no head and no lacing and only a slight aroma of rice. It's a beer best kept for college students who do not have to money to buy anything else. It has no characteristics of a real beer. I'm using it to cleanse my palate in between reviews of more worthy beers.

i was looking forward to enjoying a nice delicious beer but unfortunately this was the only beer my room mate had. after taking the first sip i could already tell how bad it was. throughout the entire beer, it tasted like an ass of a cheap beer (example: budweiser and busch). i recommend staying away from this beer at all cost.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A- One inch white fluffy head on a dark pale beer. Low head retention and no lacing.

S- Smells of light bread and not much else.

T- Pale malts with just enough hops to balance it out. Slight sweet aftertaste but not overpowering at all. Refreshing.

M- Medium to medium-thin mouthfeel. Good carbonation.

D/O: Reviewed to style. Here it is, review #400. "If you're drinking light beer it isn't for the taste...Keystone Light has the least amount of taste in a Light beer...therefore Keystone Light is the best Light beer." I've said this, over and over defending my late teen/early twenties go-to. This is the beer that tastes most like water, great for drinking all day, preferably in the summer sun.

Appearance – Clear yellow colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is a lot of carbonation and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 3 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Grains, bread, malts, corn

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation and it comes across as thin/light/watery. I can taste lots of corn mixed with light malts and some grains. There is also a bit of a apple juice sweetness. Kind of along the lines of a bud light. It finishes with a grainy apple juice and corn syrup sweet aftertaste.

Overall – I guess you get what you pay for. Its very very light tasting. (and looking) I guess if you were trying to drink all day long, this beer would work nicely - it's very watery.

By no means a good beer, but a pretty popular beer in the college atmosphere. They make the price dirt cheap that is why everyone gets it but it doesn't mean they like it. It may be a better beer when you compare it to the other cheap beers.
It pours a pale yellow color, not very heavy at all nor does it have a good taste. Has a bad after taste and gives me headaches the next day.
