Alright, time for my 3rd King Can review and its the classic Budweiser, the self-proclaimed king of beers. This king can is a special summer edition with the American stars and stripes with the traditional red, white, and blue.

A: This beer pours a very light, golden straw color with a 2 inch soapy, bright white head that quickly dissipates. Does leave some decent lacing.

S: I get a corn and grain aroma with a slight hint of malt, but nothing complex though.

T: Taste is a lot like the smell with a combination of corn and rice, with that slightly bitter, wet grain to it. Does have some malts which is noticeable and finishes with a little bit of a dry yeast.

M: The beer is light bodied, smooth and crisp that makes it quite drinkable on a hot day. But like all other adjunct lagers, once this beer warms up it falls apart.

O: This is one of those beers that you either like it or you dont. I tend to enjoy this a little better than bud lite, but I rarely drink either. Just needed an excuse to use my king can mug again.

On-tap at home with their Draftmark tap system.

A: Pale gold body with no haze. 2 finger head that dissipates quickly.

S: Corn, typical of the style. Some rice as well.

T: Crisp, smooth american adjunct. Well-balanced. Great for hot summer days.

M: Decent carbonation bite. For an AAL, this one is at the top of its game.

O: It's Budweiser. If I had to stick with one AAL the rest of my life, it would probably be this. And they date their bottles. A lot of craft breweries need to learn a lesson from Bud.
