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.

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.
