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.

2.29/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A: The beer is lighter than the typical straw yellow color of other macro beers. Has little carbonation and although it starts with a nice head, it eventually turns into a thin lace.

S: Rice and some malt. The malt is very faint though and it mostly smells like adjunct.

T: You get some bitterness at first and then some sweetness from the barley malts. The sweetness is very quick and faint and there is also a minor alcohol flavor.

MF: Extremely watery. You can take a massive gulp from this and you wont feel a thing. The beer is smooth and does not have a dry finish.

O: As expected, the beer is not very good. There aren't any flavors that I would consider noteworthy and the mouthfeel is just too damn watery. It gets worse towards the end once the beer begins to warm up. Normally, good quality beers get better as they warm up since you get more flavors but with this one all you get is more diluted flavors and a stronger alcohol taste. It does have some flavor but it's weak and not memorable. It's actually kind of sad since I know that Anheuser Busch has the capabilities to make this a better beer but they never will. American Macro beers don't have to be this bland. It is what it is and unfortunately this is what Americans are now used to. I would give this beer a below average rating. It is still better than a Bud Light or a Coors Light.
