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.

Ah, the King of Beers. My Bud is brewed in Canada by the good folks at Labatt, and I'm not sure it is any better or any worse than most mass-produced beer you can buy. It pours with a fizzy, quickly disappearing head. It has a corn and morning breath aroma, followed by a really sweet malt profile. There is no evidence of hops whatsoever. Best served ice cold and enjoyed before, during or after some sort of sporting event.

A: crystal clear; light gold in color; less than a 1 finger white head that receded quickly to a thin ring; very little lacing;

S: bready; grainy; a little malt/corn sweetness;

T: no hop character until the lightly bitter finish; one note - light malt/corn sweetness all the way;

M: light bodied; moderate carbonation; moderately dry finish;

O: not a style I would choose for myself, but for the style, it's well made;

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.

Look...who in the world of beer snobbery can give this a fair shake? Well, apparently a lot of us. I believe I will quote a well-spun review which includes the immortal words of Billy Joel "the classic microphone smells like a beer smell" comment is very astute. I loved it. Yes, it was mostly watery...but if I can quote another reviewer , or analyze, I should say. The watery nature of the brew does not get you hungover. I'm not sure exactly what that meant, but that's his experience... I for one, will not turn one down if ice-cold and offered to me...even for a couple of bucks on occasion...the Bros did well in their review.

When I officially became a "beer geek" or what my wife calls a "beer snob" I swore I would never, ever drink another bottle or can of domestic swill. Well, now that I have been reviewing beers from all over the country, the world and from multiple micro-brewers, I've decided to be fair to the "big box" beers. And where better to start than the "king of beers", none other than Budweiser...

I have to say, giving it a fair shake, it wasn't as bad as I was expecting. Although its appearance is nothing to write home about, and it has the classic "microphone smells like a beer" smell, there are some redeeming qualities. The taste was a mixture of light hoppiness with sweet maltiness, with an overly carbonated feel. As surprising as the taste was I have to admit - it was mostly watery, even for a lager. Although not the worst beer I've ever had, it certainly isn't the king of beers for me.
