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.

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.

Someone tell me how much "The Bros" were paid to give this swill a rating of 80.

You want constructive, BA? How can you be constructive when there's literally nothing to construct upon? OK, I'll give it my best shot:

Appearance: Piss

Smell: Piss

Taste: Piss (or what piss would taste like)

Mouthfeel: Kind of what a mouth full of prostate juice would feel like

Overall: The undisputed king of cheap, overrated dumpster sludge - Pissweiser.

I tried my best BA, but sometimes a beer is so bad that it's incomprehensible beyond anything but piss. That beer is Budweiser. I would drink the contents of a colostomy bag before imbibing this swill again.

Cheap corn grain. No hop presence. Cheap malts. Not a good beer.. image of mass production. Poster child of conforming. For what it is (fake beer). its halfway decent.. people who drink bud i beg you.. try other beers.. the corn is very noticable.. the low quality is in your face. If a Friend at a.pub bought me a.bud i would drink it.. would not wanna disrespect.him but its garbage

Purchased from my local 7-Eleven. Poured into a tall pint glass.

Weak golden hue, mediocre head that quickly faded.
Aroma indeterminate origin, quickly replaced with flat metallic odor.
mild to nonexistant grain taste with sligh corn overtones. Very metallic taste.
This is proper stadium beer, or building fence beer. Recommendation would be to avoid unless other alternatives rate lower.

I would have given it a different rating, but 1 was as low as possible.
It looks like piss, no head at all, light urine color.
It taste like old beer mixed with water. A distinct "skunked" flavor like bad beer left to ferment to long with bacteria.
Nothing distinct at all that sets this beer apart. No malted barely flavor, or crisp hop flavor and aroma.
Tastes like this beer is max produced as quickly and cheaply as possible in order to reap as much profit as possible.

Excellent example of a shitty, mass-produced, rushed through fermentation and well-branded "beer". I am aghast that the bros gave it a score of 80, but it makes sense if you consider this poor excuse for fermented beverage within the category that it sits squarely in: American Adjunct Lager. It is in fact, Made in America, with Adjuncts, and somehow passes for a lager, which really gets me, because the beechwood is added not for flavor (plywood doesn't give off that much phenols after the heat and pressure treatment) but rather to strip the yeast out of the solution prior to actual finishing the fermentation. Becasue of the rush-job, one is assaulted by a load of acetaldehyde on every sip, making it seem like someone poured apple juice into your shitty can of shitty beer, which would be a relief, if it were actually juice. I will never support a company so bent on ruining the industry that they dominate, I can't even bring myself to pay for any beers that any of the breweries that AB has acquired produce; it is too painful and harms the industry.

Bad beer! Bad!

I am not normally a guy who will pan a beer unless it is really deserved. This is the Fox Noise channel of beers, keep selling the opposite of the truth (Bud is great beer) and the sheep will follow.
Words cannot describe how terrible this beer really is. The only thing this beer has ever done for me is give me a brutal headache and the runs. I literally could have one of these and I can guarantee a headache and a trip or two to the toilet. Though 99% of the people who are on Advocate would never drink the stuff or recommend it, do everyone a favor and dont let anyone drink this stuff, it sucks so much.

First had: ?

The King of Beers. The Great American Lager. The ultimate T&A TV-ad beer. Yes, crap in a bottle all the way. I give it a 0.1 because [censored for BA]. Pours light straw-yellow. Smells of metallic, stale urine and tastes about the same, with maybe some small semblance of a hop in there somewhere. Light and non-refreshing, leaving a metallic, unpleasant aftertaste. Obviously to be avoided.

Budweiser is in my opinion the worst American "beer" out there. Way too much sugar and carbonation, and I know why. That is an old technique to cover up lousy brew. Also sugar is one of the most addictive substances on earth, so why do you think it is so popular with alchoholics

WORST BEER EVER AND IT'S THE ONLY BEER THAT I WOULD NEVER WANT TO TRY AGAIN. IT SEEMS TO BE ONLY ENJOYED BY THOSE WHO SETTLE FOR WHAT HAS NO TASTE. I WOULD CHOOSE ANY BEER OVER THIS BEER... I LOVE BEER BUT IF BUDWEISER WAS THE ONLY BEER MADE I WOULD GIVE UP BEER.

How Budweiser managed to stay in business as a beer amazes me everyday. I would rather drink sour milk than this overrated, over marketed American beer. Tastes like crap and the after taste is even worse. Best beer to drink if you are thinking about quitting drinking beer.

Let's put it this way:

This beer is the definition of AVOID.

Simply because it is cheap and convenient does not mean you should even consider this beer.

Full of genetically modified organisms (GMO corn).

Enough said.

1. add skunk piss juice into a bottle
2. add the sweat from a big Russian muscle man's armpit hair
3. shake it up while spitting into it once a while
4. BUDWEISER
