Yes. Just plain awful beer.

The smell, taste and mouthfeel are dreadfull. Again only thing I like is the look but that's with all beers in general.

Watery taste with nothing really there....

The best way to describe it is.... since I've had real good beers you can pick out so many different characteristics on so many different levels. It blew my mind how different they were... even within a same style. Then you try a Bud Light and you realize it's made to be cheap, get you drunk and as clean... by clean i mean watery and hiding any flavor.... as possible. Miller light would be a better choice if you like that stuff

Pours a very clear golden color with a 2 finger width carbonated head. Head quickly dissipates with little to no lacing on the side of the glass. Has more of a sour fruit aroma, but there is a slight hint of banana at the end. A little sweeter there. Bready, malty taste with a slight hop edge at the end. There is a hint of cloves and banana at the end. To be honest, as far as the type of beer goes, it isn't bad. It is fairly representative. I won't mistake it for a good beer, though. There is still more of a watered down flavor.
