Picked up a six pack on sale at local grocer. Poured into a "Meister Pils" flute glass.
A- Pale yellowish, almost watered-down apple juice. Initial solid white 2 finger head that is slightly creamier than expected, but fades steadly into a thin halo around the top of the beer. Some sudsy, coating lacing that isn't too bad. Obviously as average as you can get in the appearance department, but not all that bad really.
S- Initial moderate cooked vegetable, some yeastiness in the background and sweet grain. Not great or exciting, but certainly unoffensive.
T- Slightly sour tasting adjunct taste, sweet but somewhat balanced by the sourness, which unto itself isn't particularly pleasant. Very slight yeast and dinner roll in the finish, but only if you really search for it and after it warms a tad.
M- Moderate carbonation, and thin and watery. Not a whole lot to say here, but not overly bubbly so fast drinking is quite easy.
Overall, this is a classic American beer. Is it a great American beer, would I personally call it a "good" American beer, probably not. If anything, it's merits are easy drinking and low price. If you want a beer to drink on a hot day, and want something simple and light, this is better than most adjunt lagers out there.
Like it or not, Budweiser is linked to America's history. Growing up just southeast of St. Louis, were this is brewed, I might have a soft spot for this unremarkable beverage just due to homesickness, but this stuff really isn't as bad a people make it out to be. I guess it depends on mindset and the individual himself, and what he's looking for in a glass of beer.
