12oz can bb 12/13/18 poured into a vintage footed Busch glass at fridge temp 4.2% ABV. The beer pours bright pale straw yellow with nearly white head. The head recedes to a film and ring around the glass. The aroma is very faint with traces of grain and yeast. The taste is nearly nuetral throughout with only the faintest hint of grain leading to a tart unhopped finish. Mouthfeel is thin bodied, well carbonated and undry in the finish. The oily, soapy film and aftertaste confirm this beer could have stood a few more days of fermentation. Overall, average. I've had better and worse in the category.

Please, do not listen to all these hippies who buy overpriced beer that tastes like fermented cat piss and all assimilate to make it a top 100 beer on this website. Natural light is by far the most extravagant, well-rounded, and delightful beverage I have ever been granted the opportunity to sip. I’ve climbed Mt Elbert (Eleveation 14,000ft) in mid December in Rural Colorado with nothing else but a bag of hot Cheetos and a 36 pack of natty lites. Now please, be your own person and go buy this beer right away. Do not mindlessly follow in the steps of all the neckbeards who value ‘Indian pale ale’ on this god forsaken website. Natural light will bring you far more success and fortune to your life than any beer here listed on the top 2,500. I can firmly say that if you don’t enjoy a nice cold natural light on a brisk Saturday afternoon after mowing the lawn.... then you don’t deserve to drink any beer considering your lack of gratitude towards a heavenly beverage.

Not good - pale yellow color, fizzy but no lingering head or lacing. Smells faintly of corn and malt. Tastes of corn, grain, bread and malt but way too sweet and leaves an unpleasant aftertaste. Thin mouthfeel, decent carbonation. Could not finish.

Natural Light is hands down my favorite and most drank beer of all time. I have access to treehouse, trillium, NEBCO, and countless other breweries. However, playing beer games with my friends and crushing an entire natural light in one shot (playing dodgebeer aka beerball) beats anything any other beer can offer me. I also am the number one ranked dodgebeer player on the planet.

-Godbless, I will face all challengers

Every cheap light beer has tons of hate from the hipsters in the craft beer world.you guys try way too hard. Like really how much greatness do you expect from a budget option from AB ? Its light easy to drink and costed 3 bucks for 2 25oz cans.

This beer is watery refreshment! This is my number one go to beer. Because of the price number one and because it is easy to drink and a great beer to have after a long day in the hot sun. If it is hot and muggy outside I don't want a heavy beer no matter how good it tastes it is not as refreshing as a cold, watery natty light.

Bottom shelf economy beer. Price wise a good buy, but that's all I can really say. Taste is similar bottle to can, except the times I've drank Natural Light from a can I almost usually get a very metallic taste. Not sure if it's the can, which I doubt, since outher AB beers never have a metallic taste. I think it's a combination of the brewing ingredients which pick up some of the metallic from the canning process. Advertised as a pilsner, which I believe to be false. Your typical macro brewed lager, and a bad one at that. Never had a good experience, almost always gotten a headache off of it. Has to be the yeast & hops combination that causes it. Have heard some folks have absolutely no tolerance to it, while others have a pleasant drinking experience. Yellow straw color, big foamy head. Smell is ok, again somewhat metallic smell upon opening, which seems to be the running theme in my experience with Natural Light. If you're looking for an AB economy light beer go with Busch Light.

Pours out a light straw yellow. Head has very little retention and leaves no lacing.
Metallic twang in the nose with a hint of grains and sweet corn.
Taste is a bit grainy. Corn is faint. It is mostly watered down.
Mouthfeel is sharp and bubbly. Sparking mineral water zone.

It’s not that bad at all. Buy a thirty pack and have one or two for every meal or after yard work. Very crushable. You can enjoy them all day long and still not feel full. Definitely one of my favorite beers. Cheers.

This beer is like water in a can, but it is definitely my favorite. I drink beer because I like the taste. And this doesn't get me drunk like a lot of other beers when I drink it at the same pace. Love natty light
