Continuing my masochistic journey into mainstream beer, I definitely found Keystone Light "smooth."

Pours a yellow golden color with light head. Smells of mild grain and wheat. Taste is very light, simple grain flavor with some mild hops. Finish is clean, very easy to drink beer on hot day. Nothing very special but for the cheap beers this one is not bad, I would sip some for sure just not all the time.
Cheers

I'm giving this all 5 stars because this is without a doubt the best beer for the money you can buy. Don't confuse it with Keystone ice, which is absolutely horrible. This is much better than any other domestic light beer and is about half the price of many of them. Low carbonation make this a fart/burp free beer, and it won't leave a nasty odor out of the pores of your skin like so many nasty American lagers. Stating the obvious here, but this needs to be COLD, on the verge of freezing is best, but it goes down just fine up to around 40 degrees.

The best shit beer I've had so far. Busch and Bud make me gag, but I can actually drink keystone. The best beer for shotgunning. Kind of refreshing, and, just like those commercials, it is actually very smooth. If you want to spend $10 on 24 beers, go with stones.
