This poured with the clearest of pale yellow complexion but the mass of bubbles that clung to the glass blocked the visibility. The head was a huge mass of tiny bursting bubbles that grew out of control.

The nose is a sour malt, kind of metallic, with a light corn and breadiness.

The flavor is sour, metallic, corny, piney hop maybe.

The feel is prickly and brash with so much carbonation.

I simply couldn't even entertain myself with this and had to eventually pour it out.

For a light beer, this is the way to go. Light in color, mild aroma, and mild taste; high carbonation. A really good beer for someone that may not like the complexity of craft styles, it is very easy to knock a few back without getting "too far gone." A staple beer in our house for an after dinner or summer drink- you can't beat this light beer for the price.

2.23/5  rDev -18.3%

Pours a brilliant golden straw color with a foamy one inch ivory head that lingers.

Metal, grain, and floral hops dominate the aroma, with corn adding sweetness.

Grain and corn form the backbone of the flavor profile, with a metallic/lime tang rounding out the slightly bitter, bready finish.

Body is fairly light, with somewhat high carbonation and an astringent finish.

Overall, a brew I won't be frequently drinking.

This has long been my Sunday football beer. Partly because it's better than Bud Light, and half the price. And partly because I'm a Bengals fan, and our "Who-Dey" chant is derived from Hudy.

Nothing special here, just a standard fare light lager. Pours out piss yellow and foamy, with about a two finger head. The taste is dominated by corn and rice, but it is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet. The aroma is similar to the taste, but the hops are a little harder to detect.

Not great, but a decent beer in my opinion, but it is sort of an acquired taste. But I'll knock back a twelve pack per week of Hudy Delight September-February. If I'm not drinking craft, I'm drinking this.

Hudy Delight has a typical thick, white head and a clear, bubbly straw appearance, with a tad bit of lacing. The aroma is sweet, light, and grainy. Taste is of mild, roasted malt, sweet corn, water, green apples, and just a tickle of hops bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Hudy Delight finishes crisp, clean, fairly refreshing, dry, dull, and cheap feeling. Overall, this is tolerable.

This beer pours like champagne: champagne-colored with a bone white head that's too loose to stick around for very long but with bubbly activity that struggles to keep it alive and does allow a swirling thin foam to resurface from time to time. Said foam lacks the substance to leave any lacing behind after initial spotting.
The aroma offers mostly white grape and green apple skin with a kiss of herbal hop. Better than BMC light, anyway.
The flavor offers much of the same with a bit more grains in the back. Despite the vinous and white fruit flesh flavors, this beer avoids a certain sourness that mars some of these light lagers.
The feel is dry, certainly light, and crisp. Yes, it's thin, but no more than the typical light beer and less watery than light macro beers.
Is this beer a delight? Not exactly. But it may sit directly in the median range of light lagers.
