Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Appearance – Light yellow in the body with nice-looking carbonation. I was able to work a little head out of the can with some good arm action on the pour.

Smell – Classic American graininess. I thought for a second that I could smell some hops, but I was wrong.

Taste – More grain in the flavor with a touch of gummi-bear sweetness at the finish.

Mouthfeel – The carbonation is just right and it went down pretty smooth for me. No bad surprises here, which is important when striving for mediocrity.

Drinkability – Ice cold, can-fermented, and skunk free make this beer a winner.

Comments – The King is a good standard for American piss beers. It’s smooth, well carbonated, and refreshing. Of course, it’s mostly water with little to no body, but it goes good with pretzels, pizza, or a four pound salt lick.

Crystal clear. Very light yellowish color topped by a full and foamy bright white head that holds very well. The carbonation is quite fine, leaving thin steady streams of tiny bubbles rising steadily to the surface. Nice appearance! The aroma is quite limited with just vaugue indications of malt, hops, fermentation esters and alcohol. The body is light with a gentle carbonation and a slightly creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is quite one-sided, however, with only a very light malt character ever so gently buoyed by hop bitterness and a light "apple" character from fermentation. The finish is "short and sweet" with only a residual malt and next to non-existant bitterness. Refreshing! This is the best selling beer in the world for a reason. Although limited in character, it displays no flaws whatsoever. There is nothing even remotely objectable about it - a true "beer for the masses".
