look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Served on tap at a T.G.I. Friday's in Waterbury, Conn.; hey, sometimes you've gotta go with he happy hour special.

A: Poured a very clear, pale straw yellow with virtually no head. Whatever was served reduced to a non-existent sud residue, leaving it soapy looking. Not that appealing.

S: I wish I could tell you, but there's not enough in there to pick up anything specific. A little bit of grainy corn, with some very slight lager sweetness, but nothing standout. Like whiffing water.

T: Taste is bittersweet and metallic corn. There is a hop note on the palate, but it gets overridden by the seltzer water effect of this macro lager. Balance is not a word anyone could use here without lying to themselves and us all.

M: Mouthfeel is crisp, watery and bitter. Despite not tasting that great, there is certainly something that Bud does to make it tolerable enough to drink more than two of.

D: On a hot day, at the ball park, tailgating, or camping, or at a mass family BBQ, Bud fits right at home. Otherwise, keep the "King of Fears" and its AB counterparts out of my fridge.

If it's on special, at a bar, or in the store, and you're not trying to impress anyone or going for something different, then Bud can be purchased without regret. Otherwise, spend the extra cash and get something you'll have something good to remember it by.

Serving type: on-tap
