QBCBC 35: Natural Light

The Quest for the Best Cheap Beer in a Can continues, episode 35: Natural Light. The QBCBC archive is here.

If you remember 13 shit beers ago, I reviewed Natural Ice. This time I go after its bastardized, retarded cousin – you know the one,  the jackass who comes to the family holidays and brags about how much of “The Man” he is but still hangs around high school in beater caddy hitting on 11th graders though he graduated 4 years ago and still lives with his mom and denies he ever got that 16 year old chic pregnant but still lets her smoke in his car at the high school parking lot so she don’t get caught – Natty Light.

% Alcohol: 4.2

Price: $4.99/6 12 oz. cans = $0.83/12 oz. can

Punch: 4.2%/$0.83=5.06

Color: Very pale, nearly white.

Aroma: This shit literally smells like urine. IS THIS REALLY BUD LIGHT DIGUISHED AS ANOTHER BEER!>!??? WTF!?!

First Sip: Tastes disgustingly sweet. Like corn starch with a hint of maple syrup in it.

Aftertaste: The initial taste just lingers for a bit and feels stale on the back of the tongue.

Overall: Its not good, at all. But not as foul as Bud Light. That must mean something right?? Taste is horrid, smells like piss and essentially worthless from a alcohol per $$ perspective – just like the loser cousin I described above.

Score: 1/10

    As a Natty Light fan, I am going to contest this post. You, sir, are not looking for cheap beer in a can. You’re looking for GOOD beer in a can. Natty Light is the BEST cheap beer in a can.

    You have an excellent pallet and a deep appreciation for quality. But when you give a beer that has supported some of the best parties I’ve ever thrown, I have to draw a line in the sand.

    You can rant all day long, up and down, about hops and citrusy notes. It’s gonna be $1.50 a can, and that works out to $36 dollars a case. For that much, I can get 3 cases of Natty Light and a pack of phillies. Appreciate your expensive beer over here, we’re getting drunk over there!

  2. Touché Adam. Touché.

    But I think you are missing the bigger point. This Quest is about finding the best tasting beer for the cheapest price possibly… in a can. Natty Lite fails the taste buds and frankly, if you peruse the archives, I am of the opinion that even CHEAPER beers of higher quality, alcohol content and taste. For a nice thrashing with a decent taste try QBCBC #11, Steel Reserve 8.1. This is about maximizing drunkenness (alcohol content) over 2 variables taste (my highly subjective rating) and price. Your parties, with all due respect, could have been made even more affordable and potential batshit insane, by going with Icehouse, Schlitz, or any number of fine adult beverages that I have reviewed.
