Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: kbub6f on 11-21-2000

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.

After a couple of red labels on the rocks I like to throw back a couple buds and if you think it's weird to chase a nice scotch with a cheap American lager I suggest you try. It'll have you "turn down for what" lickity split

good beer for what it is, not too expensive and can be found just about anywhere. The flavor is pretty mild and easy to drink and the smell reminds me of family BBQs

It is what it is a drinkable beer you can find everywhere for a decent price. Not good not bad.

The color is extremely light and transparent. The aroma is not overly complicated. The taste is disappointing. Rice with a corn sweetness and a sticky consistency. The finish is soap with a mild bitterness. The carbonation is strong.

I am not an everyday Bud drinker, but it is the most complex beer brewed in the world. I travel the world and every place I try it, is as good in the US. Also consistent everywhere in the U.S.

Was at an NFL playoffs gathering with some non craft beer friends. I brought some of my "good" stuff to share. When that was finished, I chased it all down with the host's Budweiser. Honestly, it's not a bad beer considering the fancy stuff I've grown accustomed to. On the surface it looks terrible. It pours a bland straw colored color with little head. Not the most attractive looking beer for sure. The aroma for me is off putting. A non fresh graininess followed by a piss like odor. The taste is nice though; smooth, clean and a simple grainy flavor. Pretty watery and non complex but not terrible. The feel is my favorite; crisp, refreshing, light and drinkable. A good session beer and not a bad choice to watch football with. I won't start buying it but I won't turn down if offered to me.

First off I'm an IPA man but I will try to put that aside to rate this beer for the style that it is.

Look: straw colored yellow typical of American adjacent lagers

Smell: sweet damp grainy with touch of cracker and hint of biscuit. Very small hints of hops and the famous Budweiser rice and beechwood.

Taste: much like the smell. Very mild with the faintest hops with grains beechwood and rice being dominant. Very drinkable

Feel: very light with a healthy amount of carbonation with the texture of champagne. Again very drinkable.

Overall: again not a fan of this style for my choice but must say it is my choice beer if I were to drop into a dive bar. Compared to all other American adjacent lagers. There is a reason it's called the king of (American adjacent lager) beers. Cheers!

I grew up on it so I still have a place for it in my heart. Corn and bubbles.
