2.75/5 rDev +18%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: The usual straw yellow adjunct coloring. Bone white head that starts off at around one and a half fingers and sticks around as a decent cap throughout. There is actually a splotch of lacing here and there. Overall it's a tad better than it's brethren.
Smell: Primarily an adjunct corn smell with a metallic vat twang to it. There's also some generic malted barley in the background and that's about it.
Taste: The same for the most part. Fairly clean flavor when it's fresh out of the fridge. The metallic off flavors start to present themselves the longer the beer sits out. In addition to the corn and malted barley there is just the slightest flash of hops at the finish. It's not bitter so much as it is almost grassy.
Mouthfeel: Rampant, tongue prickling carbonation. I suppose carbonating it to this level may somehow deter the palate from picking up further off flavors? I don't quite understand why they force carbonate this to such an extreme level. Body is an inkling thicker than water.
Drinkability: Relatively unoffensive as long as you keep it as cold as possible. I think this may be one, if not thee, only case where I'd considering using a frosted glass. Continuing on there are certainly less off-flavors than I've experienced in some other adjuncts, particularly Miller.
Overall as I said it's pretty unoffensive, but really why bother when there are so many superior beer styles out there? I got this bottle for free, so I figured I'd review it.

This being the first beer I have tried and this being the first review I have done, I'm not sure if you'll take me seriously. But here's a simple review.
The appearance is great. I put this in my Hofbrauhaus liter beer mug. Every time, it has a nice yellow, almost gold color to it. Nice frothy head depending on which temperature you serve it. When looking into the beer, the bubbles on top remind me of grease bubbles from chicken broth.
The smell of the beer is pretty poor. Smells like a mixture of alcohol and.piss. But people don't go to bars to 'smell' the beer.
The taste of it is fairly good. Its balanced and has a taste that is not too overpowering. Its not bitter like some of the beers I have drank in the past. I don't think they use a lot of hops. Crisp taste, but then goes to a light alcohol burn after that. But its not too bad.
This beer feels watered down a little. This isn't a beer for the most experienced beer drinkers in the world... Its easy to drink, which is why I like it. Its smooth, and makes you want to drink more.
Overall, this is a beer for people to start out on, or people that aren't ready for too much of a bold taste. This beer is not bold, but its not lacking in flavor either! Pretty much anyone can drink it, and that's why its considered the king of beers.

Everyone need to try a Budweiser even if it is only once. This is not as bad as some make it out to be. It is what it is and that is an American macro brewed beer. It is not much different than many of the retro brews that have gain popularity. I have done a few blind taste test against some of the other more favorable adjunct lagers and I found Budweiser actually taste better than the other macro brews. The beer has a soft water feel in the mouth. It finishes with a crisp little aftertaste.
