Overview Budget Coors brand Keystone ran a memorable series of ads promoting their product as an antidote to “bitter beer face”. It remains unclear to us if anyone actually knows what this is, but the cartoonishly puckered faces haunt us to this day.

Flavors and aromas Our tasting panel sampled 15 light beers. The best were refreshing and clean and managed to be light without being watery. The rest were insipid and thin, and to call them watery is to deny how refreshing and tasty water can be. Keystone Light is from the latter group. Flavorless, flat, and somehow heavy despite itself, this is a beer to avoid.
