Busch and Busch Light are both brewed with a blend of premium American-grown and imported hops and a combination of malt and corn to provide a pleasant balanced flavor. Additionally, Busch Light undergoes a longer brewing process that produces a lighter body and fewer calories.

So, I rate beers for what they portend to be. It is light lager economy beer(says it on the label) and it is priced for the masses. Given that, it is very good for what it claims to be. Busch Light washes down hotdogs, pizzas, bbq, and barbacoa tacos perfectly, leaving room for a good gorging on your favorite cholesterol laden vittles and making you think you are being a health nut watching calories.

The pour is golden yellow with a moderate amount of carbonation. The taste is light grains, water, & light hops. This beer was okay & went well with lunch. Cheers! C

If you’re going to rate it, rate it for what it is, a light lager. It is by far my favorite of such.

Ol' Busch Light. Great for BBQ's, beach parties, beer pong, etc. Basically, the perfect budget light lager. Best kept very cold and in the can, because it's not much to look at.

12 ounce can into a thick plastic cup. Pours straw yellow. Quickly fading foam.
Wet grain smell but not much else.Taste is same as mouthfeel. Light, watery, refreshing
Perfect for summer bbq/cookouts or after mowing the lawn. Best drunk ice cold out of the cooler
I know a lot of beer drinkers look down on A-B, miller. coors ect but let's be honest. Not everyone can afford the snooty nose in the air craft types promoted on websites such as this. We drink what we can afford and is a good deal, I was able to get a 15 pack for around 10 dollars. Is bl the best? No but it isn't the worst either.

I have a daughter in college. A son who just graduated HS and wants to go to a Technical College. I don't have the money to spend on craft beer like I used to, so a 30 pack of Busch Light will do. Easy drinking, decent taste. Great for pounding when mowing the grass or BBQing. Or on these 100 degree SoTex days. Since I don't have the money to be the beer snob I once was...Busch is one of my cheaper go to beers.

25fl oz can from Albertsons. Go big or go home! I should have gone home... I'm not sure you could get any paler for the body of this brew, one finger head disappears before the pour is finished. Aroma is very weak grains. Taste introduces notes of apple (?), Corn and grains. Watery consistency. Watery everything. Not horrible, just not much of anything, except the water part. It does quench a thirst however ( just like water)

It was almost as bad as Bud Light but not quite there. I don’t care for this one. Someone gave it to me is the only reason I drank it. Checked the date it was still current so I have found a beer that I don’t care for much. I won’t buy it. Mild taste but hardly any flavor in that taste.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a Shaker pint glass, the "best by" date is "JUN23".

APPEARANCE: pours a clear, light golden color with one-finger white head that quickly dissipated until only a ring of small bubbles remained around the rim, appears to be lightly carbonated, minimal lacing on the glass.

SMELL: light cornbread, that's about all I got from it, pretty one dimensional.

TASTE: the taste sadly followed the nose, kind of watery and bland, light taste of sweet cornbread and the hops are nearly imperceptible, it's not complex, this is a one trick pony and it's not a very imaginative trick.

PALATE: this is the worst score I have ever given in this category, it was watery and lacked an appropriate level of carbonation, most unpleasant.

OVERALL: this is a terrible beer, if I was invited fishing with a buddy and this is all he had for us to drink, I would politely and reluctantly drink it, but next time I'll bring the beer. AB gets a lot of hate and it's mostly deserved, the flagship Budweiser is a decent beer but Busch Light is pure garbage.
