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.

Budweiser Select is a Light Beer Lighter than Bud light on avb made buy Anheuser Busch. The beer is light in color and in taste. But darker than Budweiser. Little head on the top. A Good taste for a light beer. This beer dose go down nice real nice. I would have a Budweiser Select over Bud Light any Day. Good light beer.

This is another beer to mow and play golf with. It is good for that at least. I usually have this in cans when i do have it and it tastes fine smells ok drinks well, and is cheap and easy to find. It is like the rest of these mass produced beers. I would drink it again.

I cannot stand Bud Light. in fact, most "lite" beers are kinda bad. Having said that, I find this beer to be quite nice. It actually has pretty decent flavor . This should be the light beer choice of Bud drinkers everywhere, not it's super selling sister Bud Light.

A: very light straw
S: mild, almost non-existent
T: Very low to no bitterness. I cannot taste the alcohol at all (which is a plus for me), and I love the bready/yeast finish
M: A lot of carbonation with a very thin body. Almost like soda-water
D: I could drink this all day. It goes down crisp and is very refreshing (not to sound like a commercial). Think a lawn chair, a warm summer day, and fresh cut grass.

This is not trying to be anything other than what it is, and I think it does it much better than the other light beers I've tasted.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pale yellow with a foamy, white head. Not a bad color for such a light beer.

Smell: Very light hops an malt.

Taste: Flavorful within the style. A balance between minimal hop flavors and minimal malt flavors.

Mouthfeel: Soda pop quality. Seems to have something artificial thickening this up a bit.

Drinkability: Good brew for a hot day. If I had to drink a light beer, this would probably be an acceptable choice.

A staple beer. :)

A: Like any other cheap beer, competently manufactured/processed
S: Smelled nice, better than regular Bud or Coors or High Life, etc....
T:Very malty and sweet. Like candy.
M:Nothing notable for mouthfeel...tingly on the tongue enough to make me feel alive
D:Very drinkable. I could drink this all day long and drink many more without incident.

This is i would say an good hot day beer. A wheat beer would be more preferable but i havent one.

A- Pours lightly colored. Would have a large head if you poured it vigorously.

S- its hard to tell maybe grains, or the adjunt used to induce the grainlike effect. Either way it has no hop characteristics at all.

T- crisp and bubbly. Maybe the tiniest of a hop twinge

M- crisp and clean

D- it has the ability to be drank.
deffinately sessionable

I had this the other day while drinking with my non craft buddy. His little 2 year actually was his beer bitch running to get these all day so it made me reconsider kids for a split second. Anyway, drank directly from the can, going old school...The aroma actually isn't that bad, its lightly skunky but more sweet corn and some hops come through...The taste was better than expected as well, slightly skunky but really just light sweetness with hops. I crushed one of these and would drink a few of these if I had too, not bad.
