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.

Pale in color, smells just like strawberry lemonade. Tastes just like it too, with a natty light background of course. Very syrupy and sugary. Absolutely delicious though. Will give you the worst hangover of your life.

poured chilled in a pint from can chilled
smell has fruity strawberry sweet aroma with light lemony aroma
The feel is sweet and light with tangy citrus and effervescent with semi dry finish light in body
the taste has strawberry lemonade mixed with malt quality tangy and sweet mix yet dry as it finishes in a fruity refreshing way
This is very good hybrid beer-cooler it may taste and smell sweet but still has a beer feel and is refreshing, perfect for summer weather

Anheuser-Busch "Natural Light Naturdays"
25 fl. oz. can coded "12NOV20 WA1148" and sampled on 30JAN21
$1.79 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

This is just Natural Light with some lemon and strawberry flavoring added. It's not much of a beer to begin with, which is OK, but it comes off almost like flavored water. I'm on the fence about how I feel about that, and I think I might like it better as just a light beer because the flavoring is a little bit of a disappointment. I get the citrus first, followed by the strawberry in the finish. I don't really find it lemony, as much as just citrusy. I thought several times that it was more of an orange flavor. Having said that, the aroma is mainly citrusy as well without any specific fruit to it. If you're a big fan of strawberry lemonade you might really like it, but otherwise it'll probably be a little of a letdown. That's not to say that there's not a time and a place for this beer, because there is, but I doubt anyone's going to be chomping at the bit to get to it.

12oz can, no date, just a code.

Bought a beat-up can with exploded natty juice adhering a bird feather to the top of the dusty old can. Nasty $1 purchase, I thought, until I tasted the beer. More fruit juice than beer, surprised to say it tastes like clean real strawberries and lemon juice. Slightly tart in the nose, very sweet taste (waaay too sweet) that gets slightly metallic and "off" as it warms, but only slightly. Otherwise it's light clean beer flavor with a kool-aid packet tossed in

I have to give props, and I wanted to hate it. A fruit juice flavored beer made for slamming down in the hot weather

Poured from a gaudy looking can into a pilsner glass. Looks like an American Adjunct Lager with a bit of haze. Thin, white head dissipates quickly, leaving almost no lacing.
Smells like Lemonade that's gone sour with a hint of strawberry.
Highly carbonated. Mouthfeel is also similar to AAL. Sessionable at 4.2% alcohol, though I can't imagine pounding a lot of these bad boys due to the acidity. This is more of a change of pace option or a thirst quencher.
The taste is refreshing and surprisingly good. Lemonade is the predominant flavor with a little cheap beer and strawberry taste thrown in the mix. I don't normally go for fruity beers but this is in my regular rotation, especially in the warmer months. Refreshment level is off the charts.
I didn't want to fall in love but I did.

Screw the bad reviews. I love my double NEIPA's and this is NOT what this beer is about.

This is about mowing your f'ing lawn on a 95 degree day, hitting the shower, then pounding some out in a lawn chair in the breeze.

This is a very light, refreshing, non-hoppy, strawberry lemonade forward concoction that totally hits the spot in certain circumstances that deserves far more credit here than it has gotten...

Got a 12 oz. can of this given to me for free recently. This is not the kind of beer I would ever spend my money on. Reviewing this for the giggles n' shits. Poured into one of my pint glasses, this beer pours a light, pale golden color with lots of streams of little bubbles fairly rapidly and continually rising to the beer's surface. Has a white head that's about 1/2 inch when first poured that settles to a creamy looking layer of surface coating with a medium sized ring lining the inside of the glass. No lacing at all here. Aromas of artificial strawberry and lemonade flavoring and some grains. I can really smell the artificial aspects here. Like an air freshener hanging from the rear view mirror in a car, that's the type of terribleness of the aroma here. The taste is not as terrible as the smell, with some corn and rice grains with a hint of zest followed by strawberry flavoring and lemonade that gives just a hint of citrus sourness and the artificial sweetness that's found in a lot of lemonade. Flavor wise it does also have a bit of that metallic taste that is not uncommon in very cheap, mass produced American beers. A saving grace about the flavors is that they dissipate pretty quickly after each sip and don't really linger for an after taste. Has a crisp, frothy, light bodied mouthfeel with light to moderate carbonation. But yeah, this is pretty terrible. I don't think I'd drink this again even for free. If I were at a party, etc. in the summer on a hot day and this was the only "beer" available in the cooler, etc. at said party, I'd drink something else. It would not even be refreshing/worth drinking in that type of scenario.

No no no and no, shame on my craft beer friends for making try this. Think unsweetened artificial strawberry seltzer pretty much, thank god they didn't make it sweet, probably the only redeeming quality of this stuff.

Bought over 100 of these since they came out. Haven't even drank a solid 12 oz to myself in one sitting. But I usually grab a sip from the ladies out of the rotation (or in the rare event there is a spot start for someone not in the 1-5 rotation) or whatnot.

Anyways, pours a color similar to Del Taco's Strawberry Lemonade, but like its a cuvee with Natural Light. Basically AAL yellow with a shade of pink added. What head it attempts falls by the wayside. Just not an attractive beer to look at. Smells like strawberry lemonade. Nothin' wrong wit dat.

Its not overly sweet, but also seems rife with opportunity to have a bunch of artificial strawberry and lemon nonsense. There isn't much in the way of 'beer' here, but I guess lambics can be that way to people too. Its just so minimalistic in terms of what makes a beer, hop and malt notions are out the window. But girls love them, and they've been real popular at my house, so if you're gonna only cost me $12/30 rack, I'm gonna say why not, more coochie for me that way.

24oz can poured into Duvel tulp. Picked up at the grocery store for $3. 02MAR20 printed on bottom of can, so this has about a month and a half of freshness left in it.

Appearance - Very clear, very light straw body with small 1-finger white seafoamy head with decent retention, semi-fine cascading lacing with decent stick. 3.75

Smell - Definitely getting that strawberry lemonade scent. Maybe 80% strawberry, 20% lemonade. Very faint corn musk. Actually somewhat pleasant. 4

Taste - Reminds me of a corona with lime and some strawberry flavoring. Sounds bad on paper, but actually is ok. 3.75

Mouthfeel - Light, crisp and refreshing and finishes mostly clean other than some slight sugary stickiness. Actually impressed. Points off for losing its sparkling effervesce a little too quick. It might be optimal to drink this inside the bottle or can and not pouring it. Half a point off, regardless. 4

Overall - Because this is Natural Light, which I hate, I really really do not want to give it scores this high. But looking at each aspect, I can't bring myself to lower any scores despite the urge. The beer earns the scores. 4

Kind of mind blowing. This has been a guilty pleasure of mine. And the price is right.

One criticism...seems like every batch tastes slightly different. Sometimes it’s extremely tasty and other times...not so much. Might just be how the cans are stored by retailers.
