bottles or cans

Appearance- Don't ever see it cause this is a beer you never pour! This beer my friends is drunk only out of a can or bottle!

Smell- Cold and refreshing (as long as it is not skunked) This is not a beer to smell or savor.

Taste- As is in the name. Light and one step above carbonated water.

Mouth-feel- Carbonation and cold

Overall- This is the beer of my youth and of Golf and after hockey with the boys or a night out when you want to drink a few beers socially and the good stuff can not be drunk in that quantity.

There is a place and time for Bud Light and it should be judged on that scale not on those of the craft beers, stouts and porters of the world!

Let's be honest. This is just not a good beer. Hands down. Simple as that. I also doubt anyone on a site like Beer Advocate would disagree with me. ANYWAY...

A - I will give them this. The beer is clear. Then again, if you're essentially making alcohol water, how could it not be?

S - Meh... Let's be honest, there's just nothing special going on here.

T - Just bad. Not good. How else can you say it? It's wispy, thin, fizzy yellow alcohol water. There's no complexity. How this has passed for "America's Beer" or what have you is beyond me.

M - It was hard to come up with anything here. I was too busy choking this nonsense down at a party in a beer pong game to even care.

Overall - a completley forgettable product. It's just a bad faith effort at a brew, not to mention the way Anheuser-Busch pushes around the craft/micro brewers just leaves a bad taste in my mouth (almost as bad as the one left behind from their actual product.)

Alright I'm from St. Louis, being from the home city, I will always have a love for beers like bud, schlafly, rolling rock, and Budweiser. But this beer in particular, is a great pong beer. I'm a stout and ale guy, but ill definitely drink this at a Cards game. The best part is, the girls will be drinking it too, so that's something else in common ;)
Ill also drink it sometimes when my friends are together, but in all honesty, after you taste a stronger darker beer, you can barely even taste this. Which is good if you're trying to get drunk and have some fun. But if you're a stout or ale guy, or just like them dark beers, you definitely wont want to drink this at home lol.which I'm sure you already know. The beer is bright yellow, super foamy, and has the smaell and taste both, of a bitter faint lime, or wheat. You can taste that yeast. Hell, I can even smell the yeast from the brewery at home. Good work they are doing there. But overall, this beet is supposed to be watery and light. Those giving low ratings because of its water content or faint taste, this is the way bud is supposed to be, this beer just isn't the right type for you :p
Any other day, a prefer my Old Rasputin or Murphy's.
