Coming from St. Louis this is the beer I've known since birth. "The King of Beers." Certainly the king of adjunct lagers. This and probably either Samuel Adams, Pabst Blue Ribbon or Lone Star are my other favorite adjunct beers. But back to Bud; I love this beer. It is the most accessible beer at a fair price. It has a wonderful taste that makes up for its faint aroma. The taste is Mostly consistent of corn and grain. It's got a nice slick mouth feel that has a little creaminess to it but not a lot. I do love this beer; it's drinkable, smooth, tasty, and it's refreshing. A lot of beer geeks (snobs) slam it and think it's beneath them. But you gotta have a good go-to beer when you're not in the mood for a more experimental type beer. Maybe I'm a tad biased since I'm from St. Louis but still I highly recommend this beer to anyone if they're willing to actually try it without having a pre-conception of distaste. Enjoy friends!

12 oz. bottle poured into pilsner
L: straw, very pale yellow, crystal clear; about 2/3-inch white foam head, a little sticking and lacing
S: grain ... a hint of barley sweetness; watered-down lemon; hint of bread malt sweetness
T: very kolsch-like ... some barley malt sweetness, not bready or like biscuits but still sweet, with the slightest taste of earthy/pepper hops. not bitter. loads and loads of grain taste, no corn (obviously) but lots of cereal grain
F: surprisingly full and not just from over-carbonation -- it's not overly watery
O: i'm shocked, but this isn't half bad, and it's better than a handful of craft beers I've had in the kolsch/blonde ale category. there's next to no hop presence, so it doesn't compare well to pilseners, but octoberfests and dortmunder lagers, yeah ... it's similar to those. everything tastewise is pretty muted, but it has just enough sweetness to it to offer some character.
when in doubt and stuck with the typical BMC offerings, this is a no-brainer. adjunct lagers are thought of as swill, but this is MUCH MUCH better than the BMC "light beer".

Not outstanding but not terrible. Definitely not the King of Beers as the slogan says. It's pretty average. Light in coloring, easy to drink, maybe a bit on the watery side. Definitely not the best I've ever tasted but not the worst either. I would drink it at say, a football game.
