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.

British Columbia (Canada)

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

The commonly-maligned working-class industry standard does not pretend it's a rich gent's beer. It's an adjunct rice-based brew designed for the everyman- a cold reward after a hot day on a roof or in the factories that dot St. Louis, MO and London, ON.

(Review is for Canadian version brewed in Creston, BC)

Appearance - Pale apple juice with vanishing carbonation and a medium pale head

Smell - Mass-market milk chocolate, rice wine, sour crabapples

Taste- Even. Grain and grass are apparent, but nothing stands out and kicks you in the tastebuds.

Mouthfeel - straight, easy-drinking, but no real 'chewy' qualities.

Overall- this is often seen after work and on blistering weekends, provided by my friends looking to swallow a few back over conversation, barbecue, or fishing. I had mine today with an old pal's chatter and a Reuben sandwich. This is a daily style that deserves to be respected for what it is and for the intent of the brewery. It's well-made by people who care about what they are doing and meets it's mission as one of the great mass-market drinkers. It smells okay, goes down smooth, leaves little aftertaste, and lets you get on with the rest of your day.
