473 ml can
Served in a Bud Light pint glass

This beverage pours a brilliant golden color. It is topped with an inch of fleeting white head that leaves no lacing.

The smell is sweet apple all day long. I get a biscuit aroma after a bit. It kind of smells like an apple dumpling.

The taste is sweet apple up front. The finish is somewhat dry.

Thin mouthfeel

It is not as sweet as Redd's. It reminds me of a cider more than a beer.

Is this real life? My neighbor brought me one of these from Georgia, and it's drinkable. The Apple flavoring tastes neither fake or overpowering but succeeds in covering up the usual bud light taste. I'm not rushing out of state to buy one, but I wouldn't turn it down at a party.

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a very pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is strong of apple juice. Taste is apples, some grains, a light tartness, surprisingly not much sweetness. Feels light in the mouth and overall, while I won't be needing another, it isn't that bad of a beer.

I'm not generally a light beer or a fruit beer drinker. This beer tastes pretty natural and makes me feel like I'm drinking a red delicious apple.

Well, fuck... this is where my life is at right now.

Pours beer-like. There's fizz. Looks more like beer than a typical cider.

Tastes... like apple juice. Not like a well-made hard cider, nor like an unnecessarily sweet American hard cider, but also not like beer. Just like a very, very light beer with some mild apple flavoring added, and my cider pallet isn't developed enough for me to say whether it's natural or artificial.

It's not bad, really. Unlike Redd's Apple Ale, this doesn't have a horrendous aroma that weighs down an otherwise drinkable alcopop. I will never understand where BA draws the line between malternative and beer, and if this counts as beer I think Zima probably should as well, but for what it is it's really surprisingly okay.

Super pale yellow color.
Nose of artificial candy apple.
Tastes like a cheap cider, can't taste the bud light base at all.
Ciderery mouthfeel.
You could get wrecked on these, but the hang over would probably kill you.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a a clear, pale golden straw color, with a medium sized white head. The aroma is full of apple concentrate and grain. The taste is a sweet apple juice and beer mix. It is not bad, bed better than their Bud Light Lime.

Sales rep brought it. Tickers gonna tick.

Clear piss water appearance, smells like green apple and cotton cigarette filters. Actually doesn't taste that bad as a drier cider alternative. But the finish is almost as bad as the aroma.

Bud Light Apple.

On a week long work trip to Canada, I found a tall boy of this in one of the convenience stores sitting right over the border through Detroit. Honestly didn't even know this stuff exists so I figured fuck it, let's give it a shot.

Look - Pours a typical see through golden with a frothy white head that brims to the top and overflows a bit on the pint glass. Carbonation appears to be about moderate and there is no lacing left to mention.

Smell - Initially hit by the usual adjunctyness that regular Bud Light is known for with a moderate grain bill and just a touch of apple peel. I usually pick up apple peel in some adjuncts anyway so..

Taste - The apple becomes more pronounced here though it is met oddly by the malt and makes it a bit weird tasting. Like imagine taking cardboard and wrapping it around an apple and taking a bite.

Feel - Body is sweet, watery and chock full of carbonation though not cloyingly sweet and easily drinkable.

Overall - It was easy drinking and didn't have much flavor to mention, like the original. Not too bad, But nothing worth going out of the way for as expected.

Tastes like watered down Bud Light (seriously) with green jolly rancher. One of just a few beers that I have dumped down the sink. I actually like bud light lime and apple flavored beers but this was just not drinkable... ugh

Bud Light Apple from Labbat here in Canada

So the look of it. Yellow golden color. No head at all. Medium carbonation.

The smell of it: Apple. Very strong on the nose.Sweetness, and sour. Smell good tho.

The taste of it: Apple sour. This is completely different from the smell. Its just the corn and the apple doesn't mix well and the finish it's just a bad sour.

So overall would I recommend it ? Absolutely not ! Last time that I am drinking it ....
