how i have been waiting for this day. in ireland, bud light is a relatively new addition to the market, and where it is sold it’s usually sold in 4 packs. now im hardly buying 4 cans of most beer, let alone this, but sure enough today in my local shop there were loose cans, i didn’t really know what to expect from this to be honest, and to be honest it really isn’t as bad as i was expecting, there’s nothing particularly astringent about it, that being said it is some pretty cruddy lager, it’s just a vacuum of flavour, white bread malt and a faint sweetness, no bitterness, medium to high carbonation, reasonably drinkable but incredibly thin and watery, yeah it’s not good, but it’s not the worst either

if you have to drink a mass produced light beer, this isnt the worst one of the bunch... but that isnt saying much.

The first time I had a Bud Light, I wanted a Bud Light Lime. You can do worse in terms of beer, I know folks who treat this drink with anathema. The fact of the matter is that you can consume a Bud Light and drive sober by the time you've finished a savory Mexican dish.

Pours light golden with sparkling water like tiny carbonization fizz in lieu of frothy head. No complex taste, aroma or flavor to note. Not complaining since we are chilling and vibing at the Simi Valley Happy face Music festival with this “free” bottomless light lager “beer” include with admission. Better than water? Cheers!

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.
