I have to say that this is probably one of the worst beers I've had. Maybe if it were ice cold it would be somewhat drinkable, but as it warms up the slightest bit, it starts tasting nastier and nastier. Very light in color, body - hard to get a whole can of this down really. But if your goal is cheap beer that will get you drunk, then I guess this one would fit that bill.

Okay, the continuation of confessions. In my drinking of Budweiser at friends parties, I have had this on occasion. I consider this to be worse than Bud Light, which is practically water. I wish the macros would get light beer down before I have to worry about my weight.

i didn't buy this...it was offered today under a clear blue sky and warm sunny conditions. i drank a sixer and just got tired. if you can believe it this was my first try at Natty Light. there are a lot of cheap swill beers that are better, so why even bother? it does slide down pretty easy though...for a crap beer. deserving of the top spot of worst beers.

Nattie Light is truly the staple of college campuses everywhere. Cheap beers are usually pretty bad, and Nattie is no different. Yet Nattie Light is the best of the worst. It's a college party beer, thats it. And although it looks really strange, Nattie Light does come in a bottle. You usually will be questioned because it looks all sophisticated (wow Nattie in a bottle?!?) Don't be fooled though, when you thought it couldnt get any worse, it does out of the bottle. Stick with that trashy silver can and before you know it you will be able to pound plenty of this swill.

No. How's that for a succinct review? This beer lacks any redeeming qualities whatsoever. Wait, I suppose that it could give sparkling water a run for its money. A very pale straw color with an odd grain aroma, and a subdued head. Very little flavor, just a faint note of hops at the finish and stinging carbonation.

I can't stand bad beer. I refuse to drink crappy beer. There's no point in wasting your money on bad beer when you can get drunk for less on cheap liquor. That being said, when the beer has no flavor and goes down like water, it makes it better than most bad beers. At least I can get it down without my gag reflex being triggered. Budweiser and Southpaw Light trip the reflex around the last third of the can/bottle/cup and I'm being serious.

Presentation: 12 oz light silver can with a "Born On Date" on the bottom of the can. 110 calories for a light beer.

Appearance: Pale oh so pale yellow, perhaps the palest beer of them all. Thank the beer gods cause there is a head, thin as paper but there is a head.

Smell: Odd cooked grain and cereal aroma, a bit of dirt in the nose also ... not earth but dirt, perhaps the metallic aroma from the can and the cooked veggie smell?

Taste: Thin body, thin malt. Crisp with a tonic like carbonation and a scarcely smooth mouth feel. Extremely faint malt flavour, cereal grains are more noticeable. Hops are nearly negligible and the only reason they even are present in the flavour threshold is that there is barely any malt flavour. On the dry side with a weird thin flash of sweetness that seems forced. The after taste consists of pretty much nothing except a very faded grain and corn taste.

Notes: Where's the beer? Light beers are light beers but this is on the verge of not even being beer.
