OK, I was at the Celtics game last night, and a friend bought me a Bud. I'll take a free beer, sure. In the cup, it had a pale yellow color. I was somewhat surprised at the bit of lacing, and also the head that lasted the whole time. Taste and smell - we all know it's not a highlight here. Mouthfeel was on the smooth side, and it went down fairly easily while it's cold. Not as watery as I remember. Not a great beer, but it's a staple at all sporting venues. And I guess it's better than Bud Light.

look: 2.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

poured into a 16 oz. pint glass

Appearance: Clear, deep gold with a thick white head which quickly dissipated.

Aroma: husked corn

Taste: Corn, very little malts

Mouthfeel: Watery and heavily carbonated

Overall, this "American Classic" sits heavy in the stomach and is for the most part undesirable.

Serving type: can

Am I really this bored that I am reviewing bud? I guess, so in the immortal words of Brian Fellow; So lets get going!

This beer is bright and clear. It has a quarter inch of white head that recedes to a film. It leaves a little bit of spotty lacing, but really not much. Aroma is light and inoffensive. Mildly grainy, not much hop presence, it is not bad, just not especially good. Flavor is similar, mildly sweet, light and unassuming. Mouthfeel is light, good carbonation, dry, refreshing, exactly what this beer should be. I do understand why people give this lower grades, and I expected to give it lower marks, but it is an adjunct lager and it is so inoffensive and unassuming without any significant off flavors that I cant. Just drink it cold and you're all good.

A: Clear gold like ginger ale with very little white head.

S: Grain, crisp, subtle sweetness.

T: Cold, rice, corn with a little malt sweetness and a touch of hop bitterness. In other words generic swill.

M: Watery, thin, weak, over carbonation.

O: This beer is made for chugging by those who want cheap most common denominator party beer. Unless you are broke and need a beer, any beer don't bother.
