Sweet Jesus. I love my light beers but this is gotta be the lowest of the lows. Natty Light is what the dollar store would sell if they opened a bootleg back room distillery maintained by the minions.

Very light yellow color with very little cap or lace.

Some aroma of grain, it's a clean aroma but faint.

Taste is, well, light. Truth in advertising here. Letting it warm up doesn't improve the taste but doesn't make it any worse either. There is some prickle from the bubbles but no hops that I can detect.

Texture is thin.

Best served cold as a thirst quencher or chasing food.

I used to drink this when I was 20, and didn't know any better. I just knew that it was a cheap light beer. I was at a horror convention recently, and the folks presenting the low-budget flick were giving out cans of Natty to the crowd in that 100-seat room. I raised my hand, and was tossed a can of NL. Upon cracking it, I remembered why I switched to decent & craft beer. That stuff tasted like water with a tiny smidgen of beer flavor. If you're just looking to get drunk, that's your beer. If you actually want to TASTE it.....look elsewhere......

Serving: Can, from the can
Served: So many times I can't count, but not within the last 3 months. This beer somehow slipped through ALL the cracks

Appearance: Pours the lightest yellow imaginable with a billowy head that collapses to nothingness roughly as soon as your done pouring. Big carbonation visible.

Smell: Grass, creamed corn, roughage, sweet white bread.

Taste: About the same as the nose. Very much standard old boring beer. Very sweet.

Mouthfeel: Light body with big carbonation, quaffable in the extreme.

Overall: A terrible beer, but on that has its place (shotgunning and pong).
