There's really nothing special about Keystone Light. About as pale on flavor as it is in color. But this is my go-to summer beer. After working in the heat and humidity of southern Missouri prepping the bottom field for the upcoming deer season, the last thing I'm reaching for is a heavy (yet delicious) craft brew. BBQ with friends? Keystone Light allows me to keep up with my buddies without bloating like roadkill. The best part is the price. $15 for a 30-pack. Definately a "quantity beer." Overall, this isn't a terrible example of the style. God knows you could do worse.

Non offensive beer. Tastes like a watered down Coors lite. Would not buy again.

What can I say, it’s watery, tastes like beer-flavored mineral water. Goes down real easy, especially on a hot summer day in Texas.
Would recommend as a quick refresher.
Taste is water with some minerals, a hint of corn, and not much else. Almost like watered down Coors light. Go figure haha.

Used to drink this beer in college only because a keg could be purchased at certain gas stations for $49.99……yeah. It made for a cost effective beer for Beer Pong.

Goes down like water, has that metallic like taste of Coors Light (Keystone is brewed by Coors). Sweet smelling, light golden in color. Always left me with a terrible headache in the morning.
Overall, its bottom of the barrel Coors Light.

I cant imagine why anyone would still be drinking this beer if they are out of High School or college.

12oz can (dated June 8 2019, I think) poured into 16oz tulip. The appearance was the expected very pale straw yellow of the style, with about 1/3 inch of white head that had very low retention and no lacing.

The aroma was also as expected: sorta sweet, very soft grains, almost no noticeable hops.

Same on the tongue, just a bland, basic beeriness.

The body was the expected thin and watery that typifies the style, with a semi-sweet finish.

Drinkability was, again, as expected; fine as a quick lawnmower beer, and not much else.

Overall, we all know what this is. Nor surprises. for tickers only.

KeyStone Light is made by Coors Brewing Company.

The packaging is pretty unique and vibrant. It's not expensive at all for a 15 pack but I highly recommend not getting the ice version as it'll give you a nasty hangover.

The alcohol is standard but the flavor is pretty good. It's very light, almost like water with a beer aftertaste. It doesn't really smell at all. It has a light scent but nothing that'll stink up the place.

Overall, I do recommend this beer for the price and insignificant taste and smell. They're easy to drink and good for the price.

Best beer money can buy. Absolutely cannot change my mind. Every time I crack a can I feel like I'm sitting on the summit of the tallest mountain in the Rockies.

I have drank Keystone Light for years as my regular go to and it is average. The key factor over the many years is simply the volume I consume vs the price. the stuff is at least around here gets down to 10 bucks for a 30 pack compare that to many of the other domestic budget beers range from 13-17 for a 30 pack. If you are only drinking 1 can ever and not drinking an excessive amount on a daily basis I understand the current overall score of 45 but I got to say there is not much better of a beer for bonfires and drunk out door parties when your footin the bill on the tab.

I cannot drink this beer. Possibly the most Raid and metallic bite I've ever tasted in a beer. You cannot chill this beer enough to make it drinkable.

Upon poring this beer I was excited because it had a nice gold/yellow color to it, similar to a good pilsner, with some interesting carbonation. Straight up this beer smells like rotting hay & ammonia mixed together into a tub of corn syrup & horse piss. The taste certainly follows the nose, heavy on the corn syrup. I'm beginning to think, maybe I am just drinking piss?

Served from 24 oz can into pilsner glass. Pours a 2" frothy white head that drops quickly with mild lacing. Color is clear pale straw, abundant streaming carbonation. Aroma of toasted grains and yeast bread. Mouthfeel is light and fairly crisp. Flavor is mild bit of grainy malt, cracker, sourdough bread, not much hops detectable. Overall: it is ok for the price range. Not one I would buy again.

Poured from a can. Crystal clear, straw yellow, moderate amount of carbonation with inch thick white head that dissipated quickly. The nose is grainy, nothing else going on. The beer has a grainy cereal flavor to it, very dry and crisp, nothing offensive. Overall, refreshing and something that I would definitely reach for after a hot day in the sun.

There's a reason this is called Keystone. IT's better opened with a key. 4 Smirnoff Ices/10
