People should be rating this for what it is, not compare it to a double IPA that said it's about what I expected:
Watered down and with no taste or buzz. But if you're drinking a light beer, a good choice given its low price.

ps: Make sure you have it cold.

Look: A very yellow beer that you can see through and oh my, is there carbonation here!
Smell: Not much felt here.
Taste: Some grainy like taste.
Feeling: The carbonation with the look is quite startling and that is about it for the feeling.
Overall: To be honest; I got this beer for free and I can't be all that surprised that it was free. A free drain pour for me, by the way.

I remember when it was advertised as "the beer with the taste for food." Quite possibly because it is so bland and tasteless that it won't fight the flavor of whatever else is on the table.

One of the worst tasting beer. Very light scent of malt, very light taste with some carbonation. No character at all

Probably one of my all time favorite beers. Light but also heavy and it has a lot of flavors but its not complex. No lacing, but left froth on the glass as I sipped. Drank side by side with a heady topper and couldnt tell the difference. Thanks John, traded a couple toppling goliath bombers for this. and it was worth it!

Overall a very drinkable beer. Rarely found on tap, great value and good beer to hydrate. Also useful for feeling out how judgemental a guest Is about beer selection.

I like this beer a lot more than its Bud Light counterpart. Maybe it's the carbonation, but it also tastes better to me, and costs less. To me the flavor is okay, but there is something cheap about it. So it doesn't have the quality of Bud Light, but I still like the flavor better. The beer is not easily quantifiable to me. It is like a Coors Light if Coors Light tasted much better. But still something is missing from this beer. Plenty of alcohol in this beer for a light beer. I don't love it, but next to a Bud Light or Coors Light in the cooler I'd choose it first. Lite from Miller is a much better option in this category. I want to like Natural Light more, but it doesn't have the X factor. At the same time, it has a lot of haters when it really is not bad, to me. This is the Nissan/7-11 of beers.
