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.

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.
