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.

Poured from a can brewed a couple weeks ago. Transparent color with a slight white head which quickly dissipates to some lacing. Carbonation is steady. It's really a beautiful bright and golden pour, every single time.

Aroma is grainy, some corn and malt sweetness, a little warmth from the beechwood chips, and a tiny hint of hops. The rice makes it go down smooth. It's not bitter or skunky, not too sweet, nicely crisp with more complex flavors then I expected that developed after it warmed a bit in the glass.

I like the mouthfeel. It's not thick at all but very liquidity and smooth. Refreshing. This is my favorite beer to have with rich, buttery, meaty American, German and Polish food, especially with Polish sausage and perogies.

I would never turn down a Budweiser, I just wish it was a little cheaper. I love the iconic can labeling too. If I was about a $8-$10 per twelve pack I would buy it over any other lager. If a bar has it for $2 on tap, which most around here do, I'll get with a meal. It beats Pabst, Miller and Coors, and the Czech Budvar hands down. It's fresh from the tap.

Of course Budweiser is the beer that's cool to hate among people here who compare it against completely different styles of richer, darker, hoppy micro-brews beers. But I love it and I'm not afraid to admit that's it's a fine, well made and consistently refreshing brew.
