look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

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.

Poured out of a nice retro looking can into a pint glass.

Appearance is a clear light gold with a fizzy one finger head that quickly fades into nothing. A bit darker than many light beers.

Smell is of light grain along with a grape/lemony aroma. Not extremely appetizing but not terrible.

Taste is fairly sweet with corn and light grain being predominant. There is no hop presence to speak of. Mouthfeel is pretty thin but not as bad as some other light beers.

Overall this is one of the better light beers I have had. While it is a little too sweet for me to drink a ton of, on a hot day it would definitely be a go-to beer.
