What's there to be said about Bud Light that hasn't already been said? When I was drinking it, I honestly thought I was drinking club soda. There was no semblence of taste in this beer whatsoever. It has the mouthfeel of club soda as well. You could put yellow food coloring into club soda, and pass it off as Bud Light with ease. No one would know the difference until they were ten beers deep and wondering why they weren't hammered yet.

At least I can detect a slight scent of sweetness from this swill, putting it above water.

I can't believe some people drink this bile nightly. I'll stick with Guinness.

Poured into a fluted pilsner glass.

The beer is a light, crystal clear straw yellow. A fizzy, super-airy white head sits on top for a few seconds, then dissipates to nothing -- but a ring of bubbles around the edges of the glass. No lacing. The beer smells slightly sweet and also with a strange corn-husk sourness, must be the adjuncts. The beer tastes sweet up front, then is followed with the sour/cabbage/corn/adjunct finish. The mouthfeel is light bodied and goes down like water.

Overall, my least favorite AAL. There's something particular about the finish that tastes sour and unappealing.
