One of the better light beers around, hence my average rating. I'm just not into light beers, though. I've never been into all of the flavors and other permutations of this. I guess that it is so bland to begin with, that the brewer can add and market about any version.

The most popular beer in the U.S. for a reason, Bud Light excels at being an inoffensive Light Lager that is great for parties or sports games. Bud Light has a very light malt and barley taste to it with a crisp fizzy taste. For what it's worth, it does it's job.

Ugh, I always tried to find a different choice when this was around. Blandness defined.
