I just love watching the Bud commercials while quaffing something good. Bud is a triumph of marketing over product. The quality control, however, is a model for brewers to aspire to.
That said, this is the lowest common denominator - AB removed all character and interest from what should be and could be a decent style of beer in order to maximize sales and offend the fewest number of people. The smell (what there is of it) is almost beer-like. The taste (what there is of it) is almost beer-like. Yet it somehow manages to taste just... There's some sort of odd, sour taste in the background that I have NEVER found in an all-malt lager. Maybe it's the rice. Whatever it is just turns me off. Three of these gives me a case of agita that requires two Zantac to clear up. THAT doesn't happen with any other beer. I don't mind American lager - hell, I enjoy Schlitz and Yuengling - but this brew is heinous.
Think about this: How much does A-B spend on advertising? And how much do you pay for a six? Now remove the ad budget. Yep, it's a $2.50 a six beer, and not even a GOOD $2.50 a six beer, but you're paying $4.00 a six for the priovelege of looking at talking frogs and seeing people say "wazzaaaap!" Feel dumb? You should. There's no reason to subject your mouth to this crap. There really is no reason.

Grad party mistake. I knew I hated it but had one anyway.
The instant lobotomy-like headache proved the error in my ways.
Poor psuedo-beer yellow appearance. Aroma of newly deceased skunk. The rotten rice taste is too awful for words....I won't even glorify it with a description. Just nasty. The worst.
Scourge of all those who enjoy good beer.
