Honestly it is what it is. This is a very cheap college beer and it does fairly well at it. The taste, look, and smell are all horrible and it drinks more like carbonated water, but for college drinking its perfect. I understand the hate, especially on a website like this, but I feel like most people rate it compared to something much better and in a different tax bracket. So drink it for what it is, easy drinking light beer to get drunk off of.

This is overly carbonated and watery and is the worst light beer I have tried. I wanted almost 43 yrs. to try this and have not missed anything. There is nothing good here.

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!

So watery, its the perfect thirst quencher. Lacking any real taste, best served ice cold. The cheapest beer, but worth the price in bulk. Can drink these all day and not get filled up.

This beer is lighter than yellow. It really is more like diluted yellow. So light, this might be the lightest appearance ever. Aroma is totally not beerish, smells of cheap corn and aluminum.

Taste and mouthfeel is just so much water. Super light, even bitter for what it is. There just isn't anything to savor or enjoy. Its a lot of water.
