Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Smells slightly sweet and grainy, but pretty neutral for the most part. Taste is much on par with the nose. Slightly sweet and malty up front, but the flavor finishes fast. As soon as the carbonation swoops in, the flavor is lifted off the tongue for a very clean and mostly dry finish.

Overall, I think this classic brew succeeds in being a (mostly) flavorless, crisp and easy to drink crusher.

I am not a macro brew fan, but enjoy a decent one on a hot day or when drinking for other than complex flavors.

I have a feeling the low numbers are from poseurs who consider themselves "beer snobs" and are not rating this on what it is, a macro brewed American lager. You cannot compare this beer to craft brews, nor can you compare it to other types of beer. Compare apples to apples here, people.

I also have noticed many people commenting on the "corn" in this beer. There is no corn used in Budweiser, there is, however, rice.

A: The beer is crystal clear light straw yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a narrow collar around the edge of the glass, and bits of lacing down the sides.
S: Moderate aromas of adjunct malts are present in the nose—rice seems to stand out in particular—along with some hints of grassy hops.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of rice and other nondescript malts along with faint hints of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied, slightly clean and a touch watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer goes down easily. The smell or taste isn't offensive, but are ones that I would not particularly seek out.
