I had a Budweiser one warm spring night after a couple of Dale’s Pale ales. I was outdoors, listening to some amazing conjunto bands play at a festival, and for some reason that Bud hit the spot. But that was the first and probably last time in a long while where I felt that way about this beer. It was ice cold and at that point I probably needed some water, so this fit the bill. For the most part, I’ll go without drinking than drink one of these. I had one after helping a friend move about a year ago, and I had one at a bar last summer, and now I’m having one to review and/or trash appropriately.
It pours a clear straw-like color with a instantly dissipating foam. No discernible aroma. The flavor is middling, with a honeyed corn-liquor sweetness that quickly falls flat and turns harsh. This is a quintessential corn/adjunct lager with no reason other than a powerful marketing budget to drink. Final reflection: This beer gave me a headache. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
