This probably doesn't really deserve a review, but I thought I'd do one anyhow. I've heard rumors it is essentially Coors Light and it tastes pretty much the same. Got some sitting at the back of the fridge so it's review time.
Appearance - in the can. not pouring this one.
Smell (1.5) - canned corn. mildewy grains. fried egg. tin. hint of lemon lime soda.
Taste (2) - Pretty much awful but the drinkability saves it from completely tanking, so I'll give it that. I get musty corn, tin, cardboard, and a residual grainy sweetness on the finish.
Mouthfeel (4) - "Always Smooth". The carbonation is wrapped in an easy drinking smoothness. Can't say any more or less than that. Pound a few without regret.
Overall (2.54) - It may be the worst beer in my fridge but it's not the worst beer of all time. It gets a pretty bad rep but it has a few redeeming qualities. I'll take this over some of the nasty IPA hop-filled "crafts" I've had, and I'd also take this over Natural Ice or Mickey's. I think I bought this 12 pack of cans for around $8 if I remember right. If anything, the price is right. So you've got price and drink-ability as the positives, with pretty much everything else as a negative. Weigh it and decide if Key Light is for you. However, if you stop with this beer without exploring the world of beers, you'll have done yourself a grave injustice.

Three fingers thick head that dissipates rapidly. There is no lacing. The body is very clear. It is a light golden, yellowish color. It looks watery. Very active carbonation.
Mild. Clean. Faintly malty.
Mild. Clean. Faintly malty. Extremely refreshing and drinkable. Hops are hard to detect. However the beer is well balanced. Not overly sweet or dry. Just mild and clean.
Goes down so easy it's crazy. Watery. Refreshing. Lots of carbonation.
The perfect chuggable light beer. This has got to be the smoothest, easiest to drink beer out there. It is also one of the cheapest. It is not harsh in anyway at all. It is the easiest of easy drinking beers. Keystone Light is the quintessential cheap light beer. If you want a cheap easy drinking light beer then this is the ultimate of that type. Enjoy.
