Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed with two-row and roasted caramel malt for a rich color, and a blend of hand-selected premium American and Bavarian hops for balance and flavor. Budweiser Select spends approximately twice as long as regular beers in the brewhouse, which results in lower carbohydrate and calorie content after fermentation.

On-tap at The Flamingo Bar in St. Petersburg. I am sitting at the very same bar where Jack Kerouac had his last drink, also a place where Babe Ruth used to shoot pool in the offseason. Too bad they don't have any good or even decent beer.

A - Pale straw hue, check! Thin white head, check! Good lace, huh?

S - The best thing I could say is that is smells quite clean in a filthy smoky bar. I guess there is a method to ABs madness.

T - It is fairly dry and perhaps less cheap tasting than other Bud products. Very watery and very slightly flavored, bordering on flavorless.

M - BMC. Thin. Not as wimpy as many BMC.

D - To be honest, it reminds me of a retired A-B offering: Bud Dry. In fact, all that comes to mind, relative to this beer, is: "Why ask why? Try Bud Dry."

This beer is a travesty to even call beer. True pisswasser, real shiessebier. There really is no reason to drink ths unless it is really hot outside, the beer is really cold, and you are dying of thirst.

As I have said before: it looks like pee, it tastes like pee, and I don't like paying for pee.

Sampling right now on 7/20/14. Seen this around but never tried it. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a vintage 'Budwesier glass goblet'.

Pours a golden yellow in color with a very thin white head that settles to just along the sides of the glass. Very little lacing is seen, spotty at best. Lots of carbonation. The aroma isn't much of anything really, just some grass and sweet corn. The taste is well...horrible! Talk about a 'watered-down' brew taste, this would be it. Actually the taste is very light of grain with a slight sweet corn finish that is a tad on the dry side.

12oz can, left over from my sister-in-law's farm wedding. I'm not sure why the groom chose this because he is a beer guy. Not surprising that there were 22 left of the 24 pack he bought. I took one for review purposes and left the rest for someone else to drink at the farm. Can is date stamped 04JUN14.
L - golden with a thin, fizzy, white head thay dissipates to nearly nothing very quickly.
S - not much for aroma: sweet, corn, grass
T - watery beer? Beer flavored water? Flavor is weak and rather nauseating. Adjunct lager flavors of grass, cereal, corn.
F - thin as water, adequate carbonation, clean finish
O - just not worth brewing or drinking 99 calories of watery brew. I get that this is something people go for, but it's not for me.
