2.7/5  rDev +34.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

I got a pitcher with my buddies at a local place called Blue Sky Bar and Grill, but given that you can find the silver bullet anywhere, that doesn't really mean much.

Appearance: Poured with a thumb of head that did not lace whatsoever but did manage to retain about half a finger decently. The body is a clear yellow, that boasts a lot of carbonation.

Smell: Not much to this one, extremely subdued and I'm catching only the fainest whiffs of corn, rice and malt. Given it's a light beer, a faint nose is sort of expected and it's not unpleasant, just boring and generic.

Taste: Well it's not bad, but it is watered down. Starts with a corn flavor with the barest notes of malt. The malt then somewhat asserts itself as you get hints of rice in the background just before ending with a slight bitter wisp at the end. Incredibly boring, and generic in extreme, even for a light beer.

Mouthfeel: The beer doesn't leave an aftertaste and the carbonation is decent at helps the beer a little bit. Also despite being watered down, it doesn't leave your mouth moist. It transitions well, although that is more due to how little there is to transition between.

Drinkability: As expected, the only redeeming quality of this beer is that it can be put back with ease and that it quenches thirst. It's light on the stomach and doesn't cause much in the way of gas. The lack of flavor though leaves quite a bit to be desired.

Final Thoughts: As one of the beers that most BA's love to hate, the silver bullet isn't as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Now I'm not saying I like it, but it's pretty much the standard for the Light Lager style. If you are looking to have a couple with the boys on a hot summer day, but have to drive home then yeah, maybe get Coors Light.

I've had one Coors Light in my life. My feelings toward Coors Light can be summarized in an anecdote. Someone came in to the bar and asked why we don't have Coors Light on tap. I told him, the only way we'll tap Coors Light is if the Health Department told us we needed to instal another water faucet.
Poured watery, no head.
Looked watery
Felt watery
Tasted watery
Nothing wrong with anyone who enjoys this beer; they'll just be very hydrated.
