Very light yellow colored beer. The white head forms quickly, and doesn't stay around very long.

The smell is a bit sweet, there's corn and a bit if a funky smell I can't quite identify.

Cloyingly sweet, reminds me of a lemon lime soda. No hops or any level of complexity whatever.

Basically feel like carbonated water going down.

The very definition of an alcohol delivery device. Just very very bland, tastes nothing like actual beer. Maybe the fact it tastes like a soda rather than a beer makes it so popular, But trying it at least makes me appreciate how good other beers really are.

One of the better light beers around, hence my average rating. I'm just not into light beers, though. I've never been into all of the flavors and other permutations of this. I guess that it is so bland to begin with, that the brewer can add and market about any version.

The most popular beer in the U.S. for a reason, Bud Light excels at being an inoffensive Light Lager that is great for parties or sports games. Bud Light has a very light malt and barley taste to it with a crisp fizzy taste. For what it's worth, it does it's job.
