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.

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

Never had Natural Light before, and seeing it seemed fairly popular around beer tents, I decided to pick up a 30 pack and give it a try. Was stunned upon first tasting it, thinking I was having a bad flashback to when I was sick and getting alca-seltzer. Why did they even call this beer? Its just some fizzy, over carbonated weird water. Day after day, I would try another Natural Light hoping my taste was just off, and maybe it is drinkable. Nope, their is nothing redeeming in that mess. But what really floors me is that some people actually like it!?!? Give me a Bud light any day over natural light. I ended up dumping the rest of the case down the drain. I couldnt stand drinking it any longer.

Looks like a clear soda.
Musty, cooked grain in the aroma and flavor. No hops presence. Overly sweet touch of malt.
Thin body and mouth feel. Fizzy.

Perhaps the worst beer I have had. I don't dislike light lagers, they have their place and some are done well, but this is the pits. Natual Light makes Old Milwaukee taste like an Ayinger.

Best leisure beer out there imo. You can drain 6 in under 30 minutes and have a great buzz and a manageable hangover. You can drink a whole 12 pack and be pretty messed up without puking. It’s a great grilling beer or party beer. My favorite leisure beer by far. Used to drink bud light and miller etc. but natty is what does it for me. Light and crisp. Not sure that you could ask for a better leisure beer. Cheers. Cavedweller24

25 ounce can into lager glass, best before 8/1/2018. Pours crystal clear pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Good appearance. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. A bit too fruity corn aromas, but not overwhelming. Okay aromas with pale malt/corn and mild earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness for a short bit. Solid robustness of pale malt/corn and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance; and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Pretty clean on lager flavors, not overly fruity. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light body; with a very smooth, fairly grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is okay. Thin/watery, but not too bland of a finish. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is an okay pale adjunct light lager. All around solid robustness of pale malt/corn and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Bit too much fruity corn notes, but otherwise met expectations. Clean malt/grain flavors with balancing earthy hops. A fairly enjoyable offering. I've had blander light lagers in the past, this is not that bad.
