There are much better options out there in the macro light category. Miller lite has so far been the best I've tried imo.

Call me an alcoholic and all what you will but look folks... name me a better beer that you would stuff your book bag with when your going fishing for a few hours. This beer will give you the taste of beer without feeling like your stomach is full. This beer is low on calories so you will look great and guess what. I haven't met a girl that won't drink a cold bud light. There's plenty of young GOOD LOOKING girls that will drink this but not an IPA. Don't get me wrong I love all beer but this should be higher rated hands down. Number one selling beer in the world and for good reason. I'll cheers everyone to this bud light.

So pours a super clear very light yellow with about a finger of white head that fizzes away pretty quickly. Smells, well very faint smell and what is there is kinda like a sewer backup, I'm not looking forwards to this. Sweet is about the only flavor this thing has. Subsequent tastes have my tastebuds begging for mercy, this stuff is just not good.

In my opinion this is the best of the "bad beers." This is a horrible beer, but if you are binge drinkin, it is definitely better than a lot of the other cheap popular beers out there.

I would not recommend this beer to anyone, unless you are going to a party to play drinking games.

This is beer for people who are:
1. Alcoholics
2. On a budget
3. Involved in Greek life at a college
or 4. All of the above.

I mean come on. This beer is not good by any means but it gets the job done.
