look: 1 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

I have one of these left sitting lonely at the back of the fridge. Thought I'd take time to give it a fair shot.

Appearance (N/A) - poured into glass. One small ring of lacing that's almost invisible. It disappears into a tiny bubbled carbonation circle. As far as beer is concerned, this one fails at appearance. But, considering most aren't going to be pouring this into a pint glass (and I don't know who in their right mind would serve this on tap, I'm going to give it an N/A score.

Smell (1.5) - Stale cornbread, malts, and mildewy barn grain. Some artificial adjunct dextrin, as well. Bouquet is very weak.

Taste (2) - Very cornbready. Stale malt and corn husks. It's dry.

Mouthfeel (2) - Very fizzy. Refreshing though. Easy to drink if you're guzzling it down for hydration.

Overall (1.87) - Bud 55 is truly a light beer cut in half. 2.4% ABV, 55 calories. As a beer it is not a shining example. For a quick refresher or something light with lunch, it goes well. It's guaranteed to not offend, and it drinks easy. It has its place, although it's not as good as Miller 64.
