medium amber hue with a strong strawberry lemonade punch with a light bitter after taste. It’s a college beer, it tastes like college beer. Not super sweet but definitely a good amount of sugar in it. Definitely try it if you see it but I won’t be drinking more than 1 case.

A confusing one to rate. Doesn't remind me of beer, or even a Shandy, in any fashion beyond the nicely clear, golden, and steadily carbonated pour. The aroma is pure strawberry and lemonade, but it's slightly off,reminiscent of Crystal Light mix. The flavor alternates between sweet strawberry and watermelon Jolly Ranchers. Inoffensive, but again, slightly off.

Lightly foggy gold with a big white head, this is a pink lemonade beer if ever there was one. Totally light but like also super big time fluffy. It's a "water beer" for after DLD!

I normally shy away from macro beers, not for snobbish reasons, but because I personally don't care for the "beery" aftertaste, but I Had a couple friends whose opinion I respect give this beer really good ratings, so I didn't want to miss out on this particular hype train. In order to try this beer, I plopped down 18 smackers and received a 30 pack. My value sensors immediately overloaded, as my craft budget allows for a greater dollar amount on a single beer.

What does the beer look like? Hell if I know, I drank straight from the can baby! But I did put my nose to the can before my first big gulp, and was rewarded with a scent of lemons and a hint of strawberry. The flavor of this beer is as advertised. A lemonade like flavor with a hint of strawberries. Best of all, at least for me, is there is no "beery" aftertaste.

End of the day, this is a dirt cheap macro beer that I can enjoy. Thank you large conglomerate of alcohol producers and distributors!

A: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that left a small, thin patch of bubbles on the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of strawberries are present in the nose along with notes of lemonade.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of strawberries along with hints of lemonade.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This "beer" tastes more like strawberry flavored water with a touch of lemonade.

Serving type: can

The absolute ultimate lawn mowing/pool party beer. Dont care for regular nattys. Tried these on a whim. Slight strawberry flavor but more lemonade. It's not a Mike hard or a wine cooler. Its much more. It's still a beer a crisp refreshing and extremely light. For what they are they are an extreme hit. Price to quality ratio is outstanding and the more quantity the better

Picked a sixer of tallboys up for a day at the pool because it was cheap and its hot outside....

I could lie and say that I didn't enjoy this...

But I won't...

Because I did.... for what it is I think they did a very good job.... is it a New Glarus fruit beer? Obviously not. It's a hot weather refreshing crushable by the pool or on the lake beer... with some strawberry thrown in. I didn't get any lemonade but I did get plenty of strawberry. Is this something I would want to drink year round? Absolutely not. On a 93 degree day with the sun pounding down on you they are refreshing as hell... sure, the strawberry comes off as a little artificial after a while but this is still pretty tasty considering it's a natural light product. I must admit then I will probably grab some more of this and drink during the summer months.

Giving the popular and often notorious Natural Light a boost of summery flavor, the flavors of lemonade and strawberry hope to give the ubiquitous light lager a much needed assist in the taste department.

And the strawberry aromas are strong on the nose along with a twinge of citrus lurking closely behind. A hint of sweetness gives the early palate a simplistic and light taste of raw grain, grain and seltzer. As the flavors quickly wash the middle palate, the bubbles provide a dry and refreshing texture while boosting the strawberry and subtle nod to lemonade. Seeming spritzer-like, the beer barely has any beer-like attributes as a faint hop spice is quickly out paced by the militant carbonation.

Light in body and squarely focused on the flavor additions, its artificial tone goes past the fruit and into the heart and soul of the beer. Saying that the beer would reek of adequacy should come as a complement. With a dry, grainy and somewhat harsh, using the strawberry and lemon on a straight tonic water would be an upgrade.

Naturdays has a thick, dissipating head, a clear, bubbly, straw appearance, with some white specs. The aroma is of fruit punch, and the flavor is similar, with a lager beer undercurrent. Mouthfeel is light, and Naturdays finishes crisp and easy going.

Natural Light Naturdays brewed by Anheuser-Busch, with an ABV of 4.20% This Fruit and Field Beer pours out of a 16oz tall can into a pint beer glass. The color is a nice light golden amber color with a small white head. The head to this brew goes away fast, not saying that is a bad thing. There is little to no lacing to this brew, small fanit spots at best. The smell is rich with lemonade, an Stewberry, mixed with mirror grains and malts. Little to no hop bitterness, however that is to be eexpected in this style of brew. Now for the taste, it light beer mixed with lemonade an Stewberry. This is a nice mix, fruit an citrus mixed with a mild easy going light beer or lager. The body of Natural Light Naturdays brew is a light medium. Really easy drinking an smooth going down. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a super nice balance to it. This brew would go nice on a hot summer day.
Overall I am going to give Natural Light Naturdays a 3.50 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Anheuser-Busch, did a real nice job with "Summer" Brew.

16 ounce can into pint glass, best before 7/17/2019. Pours crystal clear pale golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big juicy/lightly tart/tangy strawberries, fruit skin/seeds, lemonade, citrus peel/zest, cracker, corn, white bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of strawberries, lemonade, light-moderate pale malt/grains, and earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big juicy/lightly tart/tangy strawberries, fruit skin/seeds, lemonade, citrus peel/zest, cracker, corn, white bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light herbal, floral, grassy, zesty bitterness; and fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy strawberries, fruit skin/seeds, lemonade, citrus peel/zest, cracker, corn, white bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of strawberries, lemonade, light-moderate pale malt/grains, and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness and fruit tang/tartness balance; with no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with no yeasty notes. Moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness and tart/tangy fruit. Medium carbonation and light body; with a very smooth and moderately grainy/sticky/acidic/tangy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a delicious fruited light lager. All around nice robustness and balance of strawberries, lemonade, light-moderate pale malt/grains, and earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV. Perfectly balanced blend of clean Natty Light lager and strawberry lemonade flavors; without feeling too artificial. A very enjoyable offering, and well made style example for what it was. Tastes exactly like a radler or shandy as expected. Would be great for summer.

12oz can bb 7/23/19 poured into a vintage Busch pokal at fridge temp 4.2% ABV. The beer pours bright light straw yellow with essentially white head that recedes to a coat of fine bubbles and leaves a tiny amount of lacing. The aroma is light strawberry and lemon. The taste is strawberry lemonade with only the faintest hint of light beer character on the finish. The mouthfeel is thin bodied, well carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. The nasty oily finish of these macro lights is where I always get disgusted, but the very non-artificial strawberry & lemon mask it well, if it's even there. Overall, good. This is well made for its audience and not nearly as nasty as the "rita" series. Cheap alternative to malt beverages at a low price, which was probably the reason it was made.

This is one interesting beer. First of all, let me say this right now that I am NO fan of the "beers" like from the Twisted Teas, Redds, or Mike's of the world so I was a little skeptical going into this. I love drinking light beer, I also drink craft, but I am primarily a light beer drinker. I also ironically would not choose to go with base Natural Light if I had the choice, even though it is typically cheapest. This however? They did something right.

If you are looking for a "beer" in the traditional sense, this still isn't for you.. and probably neither is the style as it is still sweet. This is obviously marketed towards people who don't "love" the taste of beer, but the problem with other brands that I mentioned is that they are WAY too sweet and "fake" that it will send people like me away. This Naturday though is very drinkable, it doesn't taste "fake" to me. It actually tastes like Strawberry Lemonade... with the hint of the traditional Natural Light taste, but very subtle and I can't pick it up on most sips.

The lesser important aspects of this beer such as the smell and look are okay as well. The look (and lets be honest, you arent drinking this out of anything besides a can) is very similar to a Natural Light, very pale and clear... The smell however, does smell like a strawberry lemonade but you can also pick up the beer aspects as well.. although it is nicely covered up for the most part.

100% this is your perfect camping and fishing spring and summer beer especially if you are with someone who is not overly a beer drinker... this gets it done, and i'd pick it up 10 times out of 10 if my other options are the ones I listed, surprisingly.. and its cheap!! Well done Natty.

Honestly, for myself, I'll pick this up occasionally as a 6 pack and mix it in while drinking traditional beers... and having one or two a session during the summer won't hurt. Would I buy a 30 of this? No... unless going to a party to share it.

Considering it’s Natural Light it’s actually pretty good. I went in with low expectations so that might be a factor. The taste was classic natty light which isn’t great but I could see myself drinking this on the beach for sure.

This stuff smells amazing. It will fool you though the real strawberry smell is so intense your head thinks sweet but this beer is. it sweet, it is DRY! The lemonade flavor is low key and works well. Even though it is just the start of spring I can tell you this beer is going to be amazing on a hot July naturday. Very smooth and light. Refreshing!

I was skeptical at first but when at VA beach and they were being sold in 16oz cans for 1 dollar you have to give it a shot and I am glad I did.

This is a perfect summer beer, it’s light, smooth, and has a good taste that while I know is artificial doesn’t have that metallic artificial taste that you can get with some flavored beers.

I love this beer and I’m glad I gave it a shot will be buying many more. It is a tailgater, grass cutter, beach beer that is smashable. Beer snobs avoid!

It was not that god awful. Sweet but not too bad. A solid shandy that you can put away without too much trouble. On another note, the marketing team didn’t seem to shy away from nailling the 17-20 demographic with this one.
