The most overheated beer among critics, the most purchased beer among the people. Bud Light is a great light beer, period. If you aren't worried about calories or sugar, keep moving, grab a full bodied Brew and enjoy it. Light beers exist for a reason, in a country with massive obesity issues it's important to save calories where we can. If you rank Bud Light among the greats it falls flat, but if you look at it compared to other light beers it shines through.

Not a fan of light beer. This beer honestly has no taste. Not sure why its the top selling beer in the US. That just tells me that most of the drinkers don't like a real beer. Too mainstream.

I have had all different types of the macro lagers and light beers. Bud Light doesn’t necessarily stand out but it’s not bad. I’ve had it on tap a few times and it definitely beats the cans or bottles. But I would get it again. Cheers.

Sure, it doesnt have much flavor, but it is perfect for what it is made for. The perfect party beer. Light flavor, very drinkable, great finish, no off putting flavors or smells, and lower alcohol content so us lightweights can drink more beer in a night. What more can you ask for in a light beer? And I think it is even better right out of the keg. A product that sells 33 million barrels a year shows that you low rating people dont know what a good party beer is.

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.
