It’s everywhere it’s not terrible and I won’t say no if someone offers me a good ole BL.

Bud Light, the best-selling beer in the U.S. for some reason... It tastes awful. It's like a Miller Lite gone wrong. Just get literally anything other than this please.

Picked-up a twelve pack of can at Bradford's in Plymouth for about fourteen dollars for my girlfriend. A step above water.

No more should be needed than one brown twelve ounce bottle poured into a clear pint glass. There's no head, no glass lacing, almost no aroma and it's one of the most transparent amber colors you'll ever see. There are vague taste references to yeast, malt, hops and alcohol, without any discernable hierarchy. There is some decent carbonation and it's blandly drinkable. Still, it's not worth the time, calories or expense, unless it's free. In that case, reread the other two reasons not to drink it.

Very enjoyable.
Good for those days when I want to drink 3 or more beers without "paying the price" the next day.
Budweiser has obviously researched the "LIKEABILITY" of this beer before committing to mass production.
If you don't like Light Lagers.....then please have some respect and common decency, stop looking for a CHEAP TICK and DON'T REVIEW THEM.

Don’t mind me just balancing out the reviews. This beer always reminds me of sitting in the nosebleeds of a good football game. The drink of choice for the hooligan who steals traffic barrels after a dorm party. A word of advice: don’t start your evening with this, drink the good stuff/liquor first then drink this til you pass out for the night. An added bonus is your liver will give out half as fast as someone who drinks IPAs .

It doesn't really get any worse than this. Light lager yellow, I think this beer is responsible for putting a lot of people off beer forever. They get a taste of this since everyone knows a Dad that drinks these, and they want to puke. If you leave a sandwich in a lunchbox for months to mold, then open it up and take a whiff, that would approximate the smell and taste of this beer.

Only buy this if you're looking to drink nonstop for hours at a party or something. This is as light as you can get before you reach Coors Light. Refreshing, sure... whatever.

From a bottle, pours as a clear straw with loads of effervescence and a thin frothy white head. There are very slight "adjunct" rice & corn aromas. "Slight" flavors follow suit so while a sweet malt and dusting of hops is discernable, there is also the distraction of metallic, corn, and rice flavors. OK, I've had worse light beers, but But Light's strength is that it can be chilled to 32.5 degrees on a blistering day.
