This is by far the trashiest of trash macrobrews. Conceived in the blackened hearts of the world’s worst kind of economic exploitation, this piss serves to maintain a fixed price point in an oligarchic supply chain and deceives the masses through bullshit feel good marketing. Fuck you.

Imagine your sitting out in the hot sun and you are quite parched. Can you really imagine having anything other than a bud light at this time? Not only will bud light quench tour thirst, it provides a lifetime of satisfaction that no beer can provide you. One of the things that makes bud light so great, is that great taste of it. Bud light provides the same great taste on the first sip as the 20th beer. Can you really tell me any other beer gives you that?

473 ml can, now unfortunately available in Norway. ABV here is 4.1%. Golden colour, fizzy, moderate head. Surprisingly strong aroma of artifical candy. Fizzy mouthfeel, a little sweetness, no real flavour at all, hardly any traceable hops, no aftertaste. Crap.

Aroma of watered down malt, cereal, and perhaps some citrus. Taste is weak,non complex,watery. And as it warms it just doesn't taste good. I had this at a party and didn't even finish it, I guess I've become a beer snob but life is too short to drink this

Rice, musty corn husk, faint malts and weak hops, both in aroma and flavor. Light in color, body and flavor. Active carbonation and dry finish. Sort of.

As boring as this beer is, it serves it purpose. I have had worse.

25 ounce can into lager glass, best before 6/27/2018. Pours fairly crystal clear pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, white bread, light biscuit dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. A bit of fruity aromas, but not overwhelming. Okay aromas with pale malt/grain and mild earthy hop notes; with poor strength. Taste of cracker, white bread, light biscuit dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Very mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread, light biscuit dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness of pale malt/grain and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors; with zero yeast notes present. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, fairly bready/grainy, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is good. A bit thin, but not watery. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a very solid pale adjunct lager style. All around good robustness of pale malt/grain and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. I liked that they don't use corn, so you don't get much fruitiness. Very clean barley/grain flavors and decent earthy hop presence/balance. An enjoyable offering, and very well made style example as expected. For a light beer expectation, it nails it. A bit lighter bodied than regular, but just as flavorful for the most part.
