Budweiser is definitely the King of Beers. Although I'm not sure which beers that kingdom comprises of, but it has a little crown on it's can tab so it's obviously a king.
Budweiser doesn't get enough credit in my opinion. It really is a good beer that goes down smooth and has a pleasant flavor.
Yes, it is quite possibly the most common beer in USA. I've yet to enter a bar that doesn't have Budweiser on tap.
But if the kingdom is one of low cost, high quality beers, then Budweiser truly is the king.

Okay, let's just be blunt with this because, come on, it's Budweiser.
It's a mass produced, mass marketed American Adjunct Lager, and the most popular one in the world. The self-proclaimed "King of Beers" (which it is surely not) however, is not all that bad for what it actually is: a decent, consistent and quite refreshing AAL. This is a go-to beer for many at bars and restaurants for two simple reasons. 1) You know what you're going to get. And 2) It's a fair priced and decent beverage.
(It is surely mine when the selection is this and the other big names in AALs *cough* miller *cough*. )
Through and through, this beer is not half bad. The flavor is distinct and (dare I say bold?) for what it is. Hosting a super bowl party with friends who have differing tastes for beer? Get a couple cases of this and everyone will be content with it 9 times out of 10.
Just mowed the lawn in a Texas summer? Crack open one of these freezer cold, it will do the job perfectly. The beer itself has a medium body and decent head. It is more sweet than bitter, but it is an easy 6 pack. Smooth, decent flavor, consistent and refreshing. I get this bi weekly. You should too.
