Keystone light. Beter than I thought it would be. I am an avid craft beer drinker and brewer and have ben since 1981. I recently switched to light beer to cut down on the calories. My go to is Lite by miller becaue of the nice hop (saaz) flavor. I thiugt I would try Keystone Light (price - $6.50 15 12 oz cans) and was pleasantly surprised. A nicely balanced light beer with a sweet malty after taste. I notice most on here don't like it - but hey it is a light beeer and not a bad example of the style.

Keystone Light is my dad's favorite beer.

For a mainstream light lager, this stuff is okay. Tastes very similar to a regular Coors, which isn't that surprising since it's the same brewer. I'll give it one thing, it does go down fairly smooth like the commercials say. Keystone Light is worth a try, just don't accidentally get the "Ice" variant because it's pretty bad.

Best hydration a light beer can offer, I won't get hungover or have head-aches when working or playing outside in the sun while drinking this beer. Fresh clean snow melt water for an amazing price. My "go to beer" for guiltless, affordable, delicous, and responsibly paced beer enjoyment.

I love good beer but I also love beer pong. This is a solid beer for that and my go-to when I have a few buddies over to play. Cheap, and drinking it tastes like a punishment, the exact qualities I want in a beer pong beer. I wouldn't drink this recreationally unless it was free in a social setting, but there are not really any offensive flavors. Remarkably light bodied with almost no real flavor to speak of. I wouldn't be surprised if I was told that there were no hops used in the production of this beer. Overcarbinated like most of the beers in this category.

As I said, it gets the job done for what it is. I don't think I will ever hear anyone make an argument for it being a tasty brew though. I'll still give them my business once in a while.

toilet water beer. One of the few out there that even at a hedonistic college party I would turn down to avoid compromising my own moral beer compass.

The closer you get to the Coors brewery, the better/fresher it tastes. Priced low and it's a great alternative when you want variety.

Clear pale gold with one finger of white head.
Smell is mild sweetness with a hint of floral hops.
Taste is mildly sweet with a kiss of hop bitterness at the end.
Mouthfeel is light and well carbonated. The finish is balanced and lightly dry.
Overall a good beer if you like light lagers.

Good carbonation
Smell is non offensive and sweet
Taste is also non offensive and sweet
Overall very drinkable but definitely hardly a beer, I like these ultra light beers for sessioning, not for the taste

For what it is it's great. I'm an IPA guy. I love hoppy balanced beer. But this is a cheap decent beer. I like it better than natural light. If you're in college or want a cheap beach/pool beer you can't beat it. 30 stones for less than $15? Hell yeah!
