    Tall boy from Foodland just because 😝. Pours a huge foamy white head and has a clear straw coloured appearance. Thick dirty lacing. Moderate carbonation. Aromas of corn, grains and wheat. Flavours are pretty much same but liquid version, bland. Dry finish. Still a bit better than Budweiser, as you can enjoy a few more and not have the ensuing headaches. Meh.

    This is a great beer if you need to piss a bunch. Because I drank three at a NASCAR race. And all I did was stand in line at the bathroom waiting to get rid of it. My own fault for not sticking withPepsi.

    I bartended a Rodeo this summer and had a bunch of this left over... actually had never had it before! This is a true story. I appreciate keals review! He really gave this a thought, and really foccuessed on some of the best parts of the beer, the graphic design. Not to my taste but hey! Also I was in a focus group for bud years ago, and after watching their add "rule # something something" (that is bud right) they asked if I would buy their product, I said no. They said why? I said its the brand and the product doesnt appeal to me. Still doesnt. That is my review of bud! Tastes like a macro-globalist-light lager. Nothing wrong just not for me.

    My favorite everyday beer. 1 day a week, I drink all the quadrupels, double IPAs, and other fine craft and trappist brews until I drop into a deep coma. But 6 days a week, after my grueling marathon cardio workouts, I have 2 cans of Bud Light. When you're dehydrated, all you need is something that tastes like seltzer water, and add the alcohol. I go for Bud Light, because of all the plain old lagers, light lagers are more high-tech, much like diet sodas. If you're with me on the high-tech thing, Bud Light has a lot of science into the brewing, along with the middle-class high-tech graphic design of the can. Cans are as good as dark bottles, and you have Bud Light clocking in at 110 calories for a 12 ounce can. So, after a hard workout session, 2 cans of Bud Light do the trick. I down these 2 cans in less than 2 minutes, then I sit back and feel the alcohol kick in. Of course, with these cheap lagers, drink it right out of the refrigerator. Goes down easy. Don't let it get warm like a quadrupel - if you do, down the drain it goes. Bud Light is just the most pop-culturally acceptable lager, so it works when drinking with friends, too. I always have a 30-pack of the cans in my kitchen, with 12 cans in the fridge at all times. On my 1 good beer day, I leave the Bud Light alone and enjoy Rochefort Trappist, Hoptimum, Ruthless Rye IPA, Unibroue La Fin Du Monde and many other fine malt liquors (I'm into cellaring) but the rest of the week, it's Bud Light. Any beer drinker who laughs at this is a beer snob, not a beer lover. You have to love ALL beers to be a real beer lover. If you have to slum, make it Bud Light. Hey, at least it doesn't come in a skunktastic green bottle! Recommended!

    I'm an all afficiniado of classics, new, and true flavor. For due to buzz, drunk, and taste. But this here, ofcourse a regular classic, Bud Light can be transformed to all, and any, situations. I also thinks it's good; as well for it's modern attributions (but not only, believe it.) _ as with its brethren.

    Served without a glass in can, so no clue about color and foam. Not much taste either as it was served too cold. Good for quencing thurst on warm day, but not a beer drinking beer. (Galveston 201205)

    pours pale yellow with decent head but fades quickly virtually no aroma, taste is very watery. belongs on worst 50 beer list. guess that's why they advertise this beer so much, but i wish they would spend some money on improving the taste of the beer.
