I haven't had a Bud Light in a very long time and the other night gave it a shot because it was the only thing available. I will say it is not offensive but was surprised at how lacking it was in flavor.

As far as American Lager goes, Bud Light is like the little brother we all know and (sometimes) love. It's great for the party because you've always got a story, but it's not something you'd want to tell mom about unless you absolutely had to. Bud Light fulfills that need for a quickie in the pub, but it's not something that I'd drink all the time. Little to no mouthfeel, with sort of a clearish-golden haze, you know the beer isn't something you keep buying because you want to, it's just the filler until the real beer arrives. The gold standard, it's better than Miller's or Milwaukee's, but nothing compared to more sophisticated beers.
