If you taste Budweiser without prejudice and with an understanding of what they're getting at you'll realize that it's actually pretty good. This, and others like it, are the first beers we tasted when we learned that beer was a pretty good product. It's refreshing and each component is balanced to compliment the others.
I'm generally a microbrew guy but recently when asked what I wanted I looked around to see if anyone was watching and whispered "Budweiser". It was on tap and obviously a fresh keg cuz when it arrived I could smell the combination of fresh bread and yeasty-brewery aromas. And I could clearly taste each component...a little bit of sweetness from the malt...a balanced note of bitterness from the hops (no hop flavor)...and I could also taste, 'feel' actually, the rice and where it fit in to fill out the body. It was refreshing. All the beer flavors were there. Each was subtle. None of them overwhelmed any other. It tasted good and quenched my thirst. I'm glad I ordered Budweiser that day. It reminded me that I just like beer...all kinds of beer.

Serving type: on-tap
