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.

If you're going to drink Budweiser, make sure it's in a cold, glass bottle. It's very pleasant and drinkable. It's a dang good beer and very underrated. Drinking it out of a can is a different story. There is always a weird metallic tatse that takes over and makes it tatse dirty.

Awful smell starts within few minutes, but otherwise very enjoyable. Easy-to-drink beer that I can just drink while chilling; nothing special, but I would still buy it.

This beer is apparently "brewed the hard way", if by brewed the hard way you mean brewed with dirty socks and cat urine. Gross.

Good beer for pairing with barbecue and spicy foods. When consumed alone, there is a strange artificial taste that gets stronger with each beer. Its popularity probably has more to do with the Budweiser brand than its quality, but overall a drinkable beer.

It's got a little taste. What can you say? It goes down easy. Like the flavour.

Budweiser for me is a beer that is quite frankly overrated. This is a beer that lacks taste and has a light, watery flavor. Really boring beer to drink, and it ranks as one of the worst beers that I've had. Pabst Blue Ribbon has more flavor than this piss.

It is exactly what it is, no more no less. Everyone's first beer.

Not going to go into detail. Exceptional for the style (underline: for the style), not many beers I would rather have if it's 90+ at the beach.

Ok this is the first Bud I've had in 2 years. Perhaps I was feeling sentimental. But one taste did away with all sentiment. The smell is awful. And although the taste really isn't bad, It is rather flavor less. Good if you want to get a buzz, But if you want to taste beer forget about it! Oh well here's to younger days!
