if you hung with the young crowd you might find wine that was very light and meh.
Which wines?  Rose is pretty light, some can be excellent depending on situation.  My wife and her friend had a St. Joseph with the caviar (which I questioned slightly), it was pretty meaty.  I think wine does offer a broader range of tastes than beer.

I'm just guessing the same crowds like search out beers that are light and meh, low calories and carbs, will also find wines with similar characteristics 

like wine coolers, whatever those are

I love ads like this.  A bunch of non-specific positive-sounding words that really mean nothing.  "America's Premium Quality Beer."

I never had the pleasure of drinking Falstaff, it was around here in the 70s I think but was gone by the time I came of age.

If you like Bud, you would have liked Falstaff.  Or Schlitz.  Or Miller.  Etc.

Back in the day, my then wife would order "house Chablis" in a bar.  That ended of course, in several respects.  Gallo once sold something called "Hearty Burgundy" which offends my sensibilities.  That also ended.

we do still have "California Champagne" which I find amusing.

Don't like Bud, don't like Schlitz, don't like Miller.  So I likely wouldn't have liked Falstaff either.

The only macro-swill I find to be tolerable, is Coors.  I'm not saying it tastes good, I'm saying its flavor profile is such that I can actually drink it without gagging.

Coors to me is like Bud Light.  There also was Stroh which was "fire brewed", which sounded like a bad idea anyway.  One bar in Athens had Schlitz Dark on tap which was quaffable.

As for "light wines", the exist of course, but most early wine drinkers go for "sweet/fruity/buttery" wines.

Coors doesn't really taste much like Bud (or Bud Light).  Coors uses corn as the adjunct, while Bud uses rice.  The flavor profiles are very different.

They're similar in that they're generic American macros though, that's for sure.

I don't really understand what "light wine" means.  There are some Italian and Sicilian whites, and some rose' wines, that I guess might be described that way.  But it's still not really an apt descriptor, I don't think.

Yeah the silver bullet is something else entirely.  It's just SO flavorless, there's not much to it.  I don't find it offensive at all, because what is there to be offended at?

Any Coors I've had seemed like light and lighter beer to me.  No flavor.
