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.

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.
