I've put down lots of Budweiser over the last few years when I've been with friends at parties and dive bars. This sample is from a bottle I stole from a party last week, and now drinking in the comfort of my home. On to the beer:
Into a stange it goes, the beer is a very pale straw color. Big soapy head sits on top of it. Run of the mill head retention. The aroma is simple. A snap of sour green apple. Very clean nose.
This beer is taken from the "less is more" apporach to making macro lagers. There's a little flavor to make you keep drinking it, and thankfully it's not spit out awful. Green apple flavor is the most noticable note. A trace of grain towards the end makes me think of Frito's corn chips for some reason. It is crisp and clean and light in the mouth. A touch too light with a touch more carbonation than prefered.
Very easy to drink, though I'll admit my taste buds begin to get bored after 3 or 4. Not nasty like some adjunct lagers, and it's a good "warm up" beer...in fact, I have a Black Butte XXI waiting in the wings.
