Brewed using a blend of imported and classic American aroma hops, and a blend of barley malts and rice. Budweiser is brewed with time-honored methods including “kraeusening” for natural carbonation and Beechwood aging, which results in unparalleled balance and character.

Budweiser The Great American Lager. This beer is goes with anything and everything. Budweiser has an ABV of 5.0. This brew is a great beer to drink anytime. This brew pours out a nice amber color with a nice thick whitehead. Smell is rich with flavor. You pick up on grains an a hit of hops. Budweiser smells like what beer should smell like. The Taste is rich with flavor. You pick up bold taste of malts and grains. This brew is smooth with a clean finish. This is nothing bad about about the taste of this brew. Overall I'm giving this brew a 5.0 out 5. A Great American Beer at at Great Price. You can't get anymore american than Budweiser. Stay true to the red white and blue drink Budweiser. I will buy this brew again.

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.

I wish there was a score higher than five.

First off listen this is american as you get, back in the day you didnt have fancy craft beers at barbecues, and pretty sure if you asked for something like that in a bar the bikers would take you out back and beat you. Listen this is a beer for the people and its a great thing. You dont buy this beer to analyze it and judge it, no you buy it to bring to your family barbecue drink with your cousins and uncles and start singing karaoke in the tent on the side of the house.

Plus how can you go wrong with there radio commercials Real American Hero's come on people. This is the most American thing you can drink so stop with the IPA's, Stouts, and whatever else and grab yourself a nice ice cold Bud.

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...

HAIL TO THE REDSKINS

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.

Come on, people. I'm going 5 across the board on principle. Yes, I realize where I am and what the purpose of this site it. And I understand giving Bud a solid 5 is like citing Wins as an important stat on a sabermetrics site.

I don't care.

Give me a cold Bud any time, any place. I can finish off a night of craft beer with a Bud just as easily as starting a night of degradation with it.

It's like an old troublemaker friend who stood up for you when you were young that you keep lending a few bucks to as you grow older.

Pound for pound it may be my favorite beer.

Once your lips touch that nice cold bottle of Budweiser you will instantly look up to the skies above give Jesus a wink and a thumbs up because he has bestowed upon you the King of Beers! This heaven sent beer was made so that everyone can know what sweet mother freedom tastes like. You see old glory flying and you hear the bells of freedom singing. So kick back, enjoy and by God taste FREEDOM!
