Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed using a blend of imported and classic American aroma hops, and a blend of barley malts and rice. Budweiser is brewed with time-honored methods including “kraeusening” for natural carbonation and Beechwood aging, which results in unparalleled balance and character.

1.5/5  rDev -35.6%
look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Pours a small one finger head, the body is completely see through, yellow and lots of carbonation. The head is already gone, oh goody. Small possibility of lacing, we shall see. Overall the appearance is pretty bad, nothing good to speak of here, looks like a crappy american adjunct lager. On the nose, I get that sour adjunct lager smell, maybe some sweet malt in there somewhere, no hops to speak of. Maybe it's the fact that I've had way too many adjunct lagers recently, or maybe it's Budweiser beer, but bud and bud light have seemed especially boring on the smell and taste, like, NOTHING to them at ALL. Wow, I actually think I like bud light more, and that's hard to say, there is almost no taste here at all. I would almost venture as far as to say that they just made the same beer and slapped two different labels on it. I mean I get that sour adjunct taste, and some malt, and that's it, the rest is water. Yeah, there is just nothing else to this beer, pretty weak beer. Is it easy to drink? Yes. Is it the worst flavor ever? Close to it, but it's not a Busch. I mean I feel like a broken record, I'm saying the exact same thing about bud as I did about bud light, cause they are the same F-ING beer. Mouthfeel is atrocious, too much carbonation and super thin and watery all around. Drinkability is ok, but just because it's so watery. I mean the only difference between these two beers is that I got ok lacing in the bud light, and ok to bad lacing in the bud. Overall, what more can I say, bud light with worse lacing, I'm happy to say I only have one more bud beer to review.
