I have been drinking Natural Light for years now, and I can honestly say it has zero flaws. With its foamy pour and its golden color, it is the most aesthetically pleasing beer on the market. The smell of a freshly opened can of Natural Light is indescribable. The only way to describe it is with an alternate example. Imagine coming home and smelling cookies in the oven..you immediately have an appetite. The same is true with Natural Light; once you smell it, you immediately wish to indulge. When sipped cold, the taste is initially sparkly and grainy, although there is no way to go on describing a perfect flavor. The same is true with a lukewarm Natty (the beer's "nickname", most commonly used by young people but also fun to say as an experienced Natural Light advocate), although I personally prefer it cold, as I do with any fine brew. As for feel, I hesitated before giving it a 5, because I've seen people belch after a hard gulp of Natural Light, but I've also seen people complain about the feel a filet mignon or a lobster tail, and personally I find the feel of Natty to be nothing less than perfect. Overall, Natural Light is my personal favorite brew of any gravity...I would recommend it to all. 5 out of 5!

Here's why to drink this beer: You want fresh light bubbly refreshment on a hot day. It is perfect for that, so hence a five out of five. This is a basic no frills top quality refreshing warm/hot weather beer, or for when you want a water bubbly light beer. Perfection for that quality.
Plus, you can get three quarts for five dollars out the door. It's the go-to beer for bubbly watery beery refreshment.

I sit down with an ice cold can, and only the purest thoughts of alcoholic absolution run through my mind. Cracking open the top and listening to the hiss of the carbonation, I'm immediately transported to a land of verdant, rolling hops and ice cold mountain streams. Indeed, this is a beer meant for kings and gods, that much is apparent from the outset. A routine pour reveals a beer steeped in ineffable majesty. The cascading, golden lager results in sumptuous suds, with a head that literally begs for a deep, long drag from the dry gulch of the thirsty everyman. Beer meant for men, and not much else needs to be said. Brewers can do it right, or do it wrong, and Natural Light hits a slam dunk every time. I love this beer more than I love pizza.
