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.

It looks and tastes just all right. Probably the best of the three (Coors, Miller, Bud) main American brews

Budweiser is pretty average. It doesn't provide much flavor or depth. You can tell it is a cheap beer but for the price it is sufficient.

25oz tall boy. I like the carbonation but taste was ok. a tiny bit sour like it went bad or something but have had before and it was better.

I have to say that to me this is like the American Heineken (which is a good thing). You can taste the rice in it, but this will probably end up being my go to home beer since it's so incredibly cheap and it has a very similar flavor profile to Heineken.

It is what it is. If you are after a light drinking, refreshing beer for an afternoon session, this isn't too bad.

Obviously nothing special, but this is still one of the best brews that the Big Three put out.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.25

Appearance: Pale golden color. White head briefly appears, fading quickly.

Smell: A little yeast and grain.

Taste: Faintly yeasty and wheaty up front, some sweetness towards the end, vaguely corn flavored. Not much bitterness, no alcohol is obvious.

Mouthfeel: Thin and moderately carbonated.

Overall: It doesn’t taste bad, but it is pretty boring.

Perhaps one of my favorite big company beers almost like any other pale yellow beer except something is different in taste compared to the rest not bad for a day out on the lake not to over priced and is refreshing

Probably one of the better big domestic pilsner beers out there. If you can't get a good Canadian beer...a bud is your next best bet. The more you drink the better they get lol.

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.
