Ah the good ole Key Light, my favorite beer when at school, but a sip of dirt when at home. A very annoying foam overload when pouring. The color is a stereotype of beer. A smell of drunken memories. It tastes like nothing and doesn't really have any bite or kick. I only applaud the crispness, if that is a good thing.

This beer is great for shotgunning.

355ml can poured into pint glass 3/1/12

A clear straw yellow with a few big bubbles floating around, cloa like retention in a bone white head, zero lace

S corn and lemon with some faint grains, smells very faint nothing offensive but not much at all

T perhaps a little apple juice to go along with what I smell, pretty basic not much going on here at all

M watery and a little flat, clean finish but then again the taste was pretty "clean" to begin with

O about as close too water as it gets, very little flavor but at least its not overly offensive

there's nothing too this one at all, I can't think of a reason for anyone too try this beer

Poured from a can into a glass.

A- Pale yellow with a very light one finger head. The appearance is probably the best thing about this beer.

S- Little or no aroma from this beer. Small hint of a malty smell but just barely.

T- Watery, not much else is detectable.

M- Very light bodied. Goes down smooth at least which is probably the best feature of this beer.

O- Not much to this beer. Better than some macros but there is alot better out there. No real reason to drink this unless you like a smooth watery taste

Wow. Had this at a friend's party who really wanted to get rid of this. A good friend and I laughed and decided to seriously review this beer, pouring the can into pilsener glasses. The experience was not pleasant. I'm going to be constructive, but fair warning, I'm not going to hold back my lack of satisfaction.

A: The best part of this beer, which isn't saying much. Two-finger head with a short-lived retention. No lacing. I'm giving this at least a 1.5 simply because it had a bigger head than I expected. Very pale yellow. This will be the highest rating for this beer because...

S: This was the worst smelling beer I've ever had. Most people say a bad beer smells like piss; This one literally smelled like piss. Musky, stale grains; so the smell of your piss after eating a lot of toast.

T: This was also the worst tasting. I don't understand why people can walk into a liquor store, go past all the beers, get to keystone light, and buy it with a smile. For 50 cents more you could buy a beer leaps and bounds better tasting then this. I could hardly taste the stale cereal grains over the amount of carbonated water.

M: Most light beers at least have a healthy and satisfying dose of carbonation. This one did not. Finished without any tracing of flavor. Incredibly watery.

O: I really don't mean to give this beer a clubbing, but holy hell was this the worst beer I have ever had. Watery taste, horrible smell, and little carbonation. At least it's cheap, but honestly, there are beers 10x better for jut 50 cents more. Save yourself.
