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.

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.
