Natural light, or "Frat Water" as it is known in the Greek system is honestly a good go to beer for when you're hosting social events and you don't care what you're serving as long as there is a LOT of it at an affordable price. Like most American "water" beers, natural light has a lower alcohol level, which makes ideal for social occasions so your night doesn't get too crazy but won't miss out on that nice buzz (if you're responsible). I love my frat water but alas, if you are looking for a well thought out, rich and flavorful beer this isn't the right brewski for you.

Appearance- a pale golden color, plenty of carbonation bubbles with a white frothy head when poured

Smell- hops with a mild hint of wheat

Taste- highly carbonated feeling with the aforementioned taste of wheat barley and hops, very bitter and nondescript almost

Mouthfeel- bitter and fizzed quite a bit

Overall- for the price Natural is a good go to beer for social events but for pleasure not so much.
