Budweiser… what can I say about this beer? I actually prefer this beer over Bud Light; mainly due to increase flavor and a higher ABV. For a domestic beer, an ABV of 5% is pretty big.

This is a beer that you can drink… and drink… and, well you get the picture. This is a beer I only order when I am trying to either save money or they are running a great special. Seeing as how this is one of the world’s most sold beers, they run a lot of specials! It’s cheap (they produce a lot of it) and it flies off the bar in bottles, cans, and on draft. Drinking this beer makes me think of a place in Scottsdale… they serve beer cans out of bathtubs. $1 beers… and Bud is one of them.

I have heard this beer called many things over the years, but Bud is the easy way to refer to this watery brew. The beer smells like… well, crap. But that’s okay, stay with me here. The beer drinks like water, with a slight carbonation toward the end, and the aftertaste is worthless. Heck, it even looks like water sitting in the glass.

Speaking of that, when I lived in Europe, we drank a lot of carbonated water. Yeah, gross. It’s actually not bad if you put a lime in it. But this beer looks sort of like that in the glass. It’s extremely clear. You know… the more I think about it, I assume you have had this beer once or twice in your day.

I love the way they market though… they are all over the place. This beer is nothing fancy. It’s a domestic, very easy to find, and one that I know I will have again if nothing more than convenience. Bottoms up… and hurry up, you don’t want to leave the taste of this beer in your mouth for long. (Add a lime to this if you don’t mind putting fruit in your beer.)
