Left over from a bachelor party that found its way into my cooler... Why not...

A - A fizzy pours yields no retention or lacing... A moderate bit of rapid paced carbonation rises throughout... Carbonation bubbles can be seen bursting through the surface of the liquid... The color is a mix pale gold and pale straw... In other words, its exceedingly pale in color... Super clear and 100% translucent...

S - A very limited aroma... A bit of wheat... Lots of cereal grains... A touch of corn... A slight metallic tinge... Not much else...

T - The palate is even more subdued than the almost non-existent nose... A slightly off putting mix of cardboard, wafer, and cotton mouth...

M - On the fuller side of light bodied... Thin... A good carbonated bite...

D - This is a very poor light lager... A notch down from the typical BMC offerings... Not something I think I would ever find reason to drink again even at bachelor parties, tailgating or mowing the lawn...

Trying to make my way through the A-B line up ( as I am an A-B delivery driver) and was a little cash strapped, so Busch Light it was for this day of grass cutting...

Appearance: very light, clear, very watery. I drank my first from the can, and thought it was clear, but I poured the second into a glass and there is a slight yellow tint to it. Fizzed up with an aggressive pour, but dissipated quickly, no lacing

Smell: not much, very water like

Taste: the weakest beer I have ever tried, no taste at all. the scent from the grass on my feet is leaving a stronger taste in my mouth than this beverage

Mouth feel: bubbly, decently carbonated, thin and water like

Overall: Not good at all. Busch original is probably as light of a beer as I would drink, but at least I have another "had" under my belt. If cold enough, it is only a slightly slightly better alternative than water for a grass cutting day.

The old reliable college beer. As far as cheap domestic beers go, this is probably the best. It's better than Ice House, Keystone and the like. It has a clear yellow appearance with little to no head. Tastes metallic and watered down. Goes down without much resistance. Great for beer bongs, if you're in college and into that type of thing. If you're above the age of 25, you should not be drinking this beer.
