16 oz. can - Best by Oct 26 15 stamped on bottom:

Pours clear golden. A white pillow-like head leaves lacing.

The smell is of husk and cooked vegetables.

The taste of light sweetness is balanced by husk. Crisp, clean finish. Not too fizzy.

Good enough to drink quickly. It's cheap and there are worse light beers out there. Rated with cost and style in mind, it's not terrible (but not good either).

Clear pale straw color with lots of carbonation but almost no head.
Smell is grainy maybe some herbal hop notes.
Taste is cereal grains, some corn sweetness, and a nice lightly bitter finish.
Mouthfeel is watery as is the style. Carbonation is ample. Finish is lightly dry bitter and refreshing.
Overall much better than expected. Great summer beverage for getting motivated to work out doors.

Certainly not the worst brew out there. Surprisingly. I had heard nothing but the worst about "unleaded Beast."

This was the beer that we always had in school so it's got a fond place in my heart. Haven't had it since school.

This beer is incredibly hard to drink, this is by far the worst brew I've ever had. It tastes like mildew piss water.

Don't like light beers. Beast light is watery and inoffensive. Meh. For just 30 calories more, I could have had Beast Premium.

Milwaukee's Best Light - Miller Brewing Co. Poured from the can into a pint glass, this beer's head is 0 fingers thick with no lacing,and a clear golden body.

I smell faint corn and funk notes.

Tastes like pretty much the same elements as described above, but even more faint.

This brew's mouthfeel is clean and smooth.

Overall, I'll give Milwaukee's Best Light - Miller Brewing Co. a solid 3.

Nothing bad so far, now for the the taste. The taste is mild with flavor, and taste. You pick up on grains and some malts. There is also a watery taste in this brew.

The mouthfeel of Milwaukee's Best Light is smooth and crisp. Nothing bad about this brew. It is what it is a light brew. This is a a brew that would go down nice and smooth on a hot summer day.
