Updated (3-6-08)

I reviewed this beer back in 2001 right after I started here on BA. Its time to re-review it.

Budweiser pours out to a bright golden in the glass with big head of white foam. The aroma is light and gives off a faint smell of grain and cereal. The taste is average with a light taste of green apple and malt coming through on the finish. This beer is very easy to drink and I am impressed how it is consistent from beer to beer. I've drank beer for a long time and can say I've never had an "off" Bud.

It is outstanding? No.

Is it refreshing? I'd have to say yes.

Overall, it is what it is. A standard, fizzy, yellow beer. I pretty much feel the same way as I did nearly 7 years ago when I reviewed it the first time.

People like to pile on this beer because it is the largest selling beer in the world and its always fun to poke at the guy on top. Is it good or is it bad? Neither. Its right down the middle. It is a clean-tasting American lager. It leaves a dry aftertaste in the mouth, but is overall decent on a warm day. I have no problem admitting that I don't mind drinking Bud. Its only when people say its the ONLY think they drink is when I find it questionable.
