Light gold color with quickly disappearing white cap and following lacing.

Aroma carries a sweetish grain scent that is clean without any off putting scents. Smells grainy but nothing artificial.

Taste is clean, straight forward grain and a bit sweet but balanced. I get little sense of hops and the prickle seems to come from carbonation.

Light medium texture.

Nothing more than a value priced light beer but not something to be sneered at, rather approached as a simple, low ABV (4.1%) brew best served cold. Unlike others of this ilk this one doesn't turn nasty as it warms. Much the same flavor actually which speaks to consistency and good quality control.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

Appearance: Light golden, with a thick white head. Decent lace, even!

Aroma: Corn, rice malts.

Taste: Mild, corny, another traditional light American lager that doesn’t stand up to the real thing, of course, but isn’t altogether terrible, and pisses all over Bud Light, for what it’s worth!

I grew up on this mess. More flavor than most light beers. Not much else to report. Standard light junk with local love. Lots of carbonation and hints of bittering hops.

Typical light lager. Not offensive. Pale straw. Head lasted on this one. Taste was hard to pin down because it's either metal can, water, or corn. Metal seemed to win out, it was like an irony kind of taste. Not my cup of tea.

Super light yellow pour, looks weak as fuck. Aroma was nothing really, maybe a little bit of the metal can.

Taste, jeez, more like water spilled into a fizzy yellow beer.

Mild sweetness, not bitter, the water dilutes that, almost no hopping. Its cheap at least, but you aren't in flavor country either.

This was a staple of my high school days. Cheap and easy to get, looking back, I don't know how I choked this down as much as I did. It tasted like a metal can, literally. Not much can be said other than it tasted as bad coming up as it did going down.

Bud Light is the...uh-um...gold standard for light lagers, so I will rate the Beast Lite in comparison to BL, a beer I rated at 1.88.

Pale straw color, minimal white head, some faint lacing. Lots of bubbles.

Smells like what it is. It didn't repulse me, but it did have an odd vegetable smell. Corn?

Taste was OK. Slightly better than the smell. I didn't detect any hints of hops.

Too much carbonation. I belched a lot.

This is a fine cheap beer for summertime yard work, the beach, the golf course, changing the oil, fileting fish, etc.
