Not very drinkable,it was always a huge struggle for me to finish one. No body at all, very little head, no lacing and a metallic after taste, even on draft.

Drank from a 12 ounce can. Scores are based on the style.

Look - A very blue can with a lot of words and a banner label that is weirdly cropped off. Not a nice can.

Smell - Nothing.

Taste - The slightest hint of a sour metallic sweetness, if you concentrate hard enough.

Feel - Horribly carbonated, painfully so. A very uncomfortable beer.

Overall - An unenjoyable experience. Leagues below regular Budweiser, which is saying something.

It's Bud Light...What else can you say about it? Simply a watery beer everyone knows it taste like water and goes down like water. For someone to try to make this beer anything more than what it is, is funny.
A beer you can have at anytime if there's nothing else around you can grab a cold one. One of the few beers that you can have ice cold from the can, why you would pour this in a glass to try and ANALYZE this as if it's the craft beer of the year is funny.
