Yeasty fresh bread smell, not a lot of taste but very clean and consistently good. Goes well with food or in quantity as refreshment.
The big thing about Budweiser is the yeast smell- the yeast is descended from the original culture first used by Adolphus Busch in 1876.
Next, the freshness and purity of Budweiser are noteworthy. I think the rice does give it a lighter appearance, brighter taste and clean finish. The beechwood chips afford more area for the yeast to rest on, and flocculation occurs more quickly in the maturation tanks.
Budweiser introduced the born on date, and they are genuinely committed to producing a quality product. Too bad they sold out to In Bev.

American Budweiser is by far my favourite beer of all time. It is perfect for any occasion and its always a staple in my refrigerator. Yes this is not a craft beer. Yes I am biased. Yes you could find any number of more complex and attractive beers.

But at the end of the day Budweiser is the best "pound for pound" beer you can buy.

Appearance - Clear, bright yellow. Very small eggshell white head.
Smell - Yeast and bread. Very clean and light.
Taste - Balanced, slightly sweet, absolutely no bitterness at all. Budweiser tastes like the first cold beer you ever had on a hot summer day. It's very easy to drink. It is semi-dry leaving very little aftertaste. I know its corny but the label says it all " We know of no other beer at any price...."
Mouthfeel - Light but not watery. Nice carbonation.
Overall - A true classic...

Whether or not you like the style, everyone should enjoy an American Budweiser 2-3 times a year. Remember drinking beer isn't a sport or a beauty pageant. It's meant to be refreshing. And to give you a buzz...

I have given this adjunct lager a perfect score. This is because the Marine Corps must drink this overseas. Why the prejudice of an American Lager. Why does our military have a preference for Budweiser. Why does West Point have higher IQ'S than the NBA. Is the Pressure of America laid on this adjunct lager. Sometimes the commander in chief has to be straight. When I'm blazing the green I want a Bud.

What if your DNA was worth 500 billion. Would you always be so feminine?

Ahhh the king of beers. Well, maybe the king of macro swill. It is what it is and it is a very clean crisp American lager that is super easy to drink. I used to drink a lot of this beer and that was because it is so easy to drink no matter what season it is. I know it is pretty boring when compared to the many different styles of beer available, but when it comes to adjunct lagers this is the king. It has little taste, but for the style that is a good thing. I give the King all 5's, but remember, that is only for it's style. In the grand scheme of beer it ranks much lower.
