At the local bar at my college, you could buy 14 drafts of these for 3.50. Quarters night was great. Of course, it wasn't 16oz drafts, more like 6-8 oz, it did cost a quarter, but that was a serious amount of beer for a seriously low amount of money. Of course, it tasted good, right? It had to have tasted good, because me and my friends would have races to finish the entire tray of 14 beers.

Pale, clear yellow. Fizzy. Insipid looking.

Smells kinda musty/musky.

Tastes like dirty water. A sad puddle. I never really ever let this beer warm, because it's horrible when you do. You know a beer is great when the only palatable way to drink it is 14 in a minute.

It's light bodied, Captain Obvious. There's a lot of carbonation. It isn't drinkable.

Great memories.

I was not very fond of Busch Light, but it is a cheap beer for any college student. The taste of the beer was average, while the smell was below average. Overall the average and below average characteristics of the beer made it a below average beer in my opinion. It is not one that I would buy.
