Had this on tap last night because it was pretty cheap and believe it or not I never actually bothered to have Budweiser on tap. It had that typical fast dissolving head that I can't stand seeing because it has that soda like effect. The look and taste really scream "bland". All you really smell are chalky yeasty undertones with the grain and corn upfront. The taste is this same thing with a grainy corn cheap taste with really no malt taste at all. The closest thing to a malt taste is the corn syrup like taste and body that it has. On the light version they seem to take out that corn syrupy body and taste even more which REALLY leaves the beer with hardly anything so I definitely have to say at least this full version is better than the awful light version.

You get a very subtle slight hop taste mixing in with the rice taste as well. The rice taste is definitely not bad at all though. I really detect no differences between the on tap version and the bottle version. Maybe a crisper and just an extreme tad bit more of a noticeable hop presence which really is approaching zero hop taste. All I can say about this beer is only pick it if theres nothing else but the light versions of the big 3 companies.

Serving type: on-tap
