Quick review:

Watery and light with a small bready aftertaste. Not much character here. Light yellow in color this high carbinated beer disappoints on many levels. I suppose this could be a gateway beer for some drinkers but Bud Light has more character than this.

To quote my wife: "I can't tell if this is a beer or not."

Light, crisp, and clean with some bitterness. Light gold body, lots of carbonation, thin and bubbly light head. Faint aroma of hops and light malt. Some grass. Very light body. Exceptionally drinkable. No adjunct, chemical, corn, rice, or otherwise undesirable aroma or flavor. This is exactly what a light beer should be. Well done (for the style).

I think this beer is only brewed for those that walk in a microbrew and ask, "I like Bud Light, and will even drink a Rolling Rock on occasion- what beer do you have here that is most like those?"

Don't get me wrong this beer is ok. Its better than most of the aluminum tasting macros out there, but there is nothing special about it. This beer defines average.
