Brewed using a blend of imported and classic American aroma hops, and a blend of barley malts and rice. Budweiser is brewed with time-honored methods including “kraeusening” for natural carbonation and Beechwood aging, which results in unparalleled balance and character.

Pale. Stinky like yeast. Taste clean, but in a sterile, martian type sense. Only hints of grain and yeast. Don't insult your girlfriend's dad if he offers you one, but don't expect anything but frequent trips to the urinal and(or) a hangover from this one.

I decided to revisit this old classic. Purchased a 6pack of 12oz cans for $6.99. This beer pours your hay/straw color with good carbonation and quite the head. The smell is rice and yeast, Taste is about on par with other American Lagers, a little bit crisp and not as water down as others within the style. 5% abv is hidden well. I'm going to come right out and say this is not a terrible beer, the worst part about it is that I paid over a dollar a can when I could have gotten a better crafted beer with higher quality ingredients at roughly the same cost in something like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. So for that reason I was left with some buyers remorse.

Not the best beer I have ever had, but we all grew up sneaking these things out of someone's house while we were under 21. Anyway, as an adult, I just can't enjoy these. The taste is very watered down, mild, and boring. They are average at best.

Cheap watered down beer, great for a light one or two at a BBQ but thats as good as it gets.
Smells slightly fruity, fresh mineral water taste , not much to it. Goes down like water.

It smells of fruits like apple but tastes a lot like wheat and yeast. Great beer anytime of the year, it's extremely refreshing.

The appearance was yellow and a lot of foam. The smell was of fruits such as apple and pineapple. The taste was a lot of wheat and yeast. Overall, if someone offered me a Budweiser I would not say no but I would not go out and buy it.

Traditional lager that everyone knows. Not very unique, but i can see how it would be pleasurable to those who do not go outside of their comfort zone when it comes to beer.

this beer is not good. It is weak, but it tastes better than the other cheap beers available in low quality pubs.

Oh gosh... All this beer does is remind of a horrible smell of all college housing. When poured it is a golden color and is very misleading. It makes you think hey this might actually taste good and be refreshing. However, it personally reminds me of a cheap kegger. The beer smells predominately of yeast which leaves it with a few citrusy notes. And when you taste it, it only tastes of yeast, and maybe a bit of barley. Basically it's a beer you can drink like water, going back to why it reminds me of a kegger. It's meant to be a beer you can chug and get down quick not necessarily something you can sit back and enjoy.

This is another one of the few types of beers i've had. Not much to really say about it. It tastes quite good and goes down smoothly. So far this is my 2nd favorite beer.
