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.

Budweiser, the standard of mediocrity, the king of shit, you could say, but you could be any where in the world ordering a drink, but if you'd ask them if the drink was better or worse than a Bud, they'd be able to tell you because it's basically the average crap beer out there, but not so crappy as to offend you but crappy though its decent enough to handle, i guess. Pint.

A: yellow of course, not much to look at, but who cares? No head or lacing.

S: not much for smell, corn?, wheat?, grain?, still who cares

T: OK, corn, little hops, wheat? to be specific, not offensive or good, but smack in the middle, its OK and you can use it as a standard for comparison.

M: Doesnt really matter what it feels like, it doesnt make you hurl so its ok, right?

O: If youre some where and you dont know what to get, Budweiser is you standard, any where in the world, you know what it means, you may not like it entirely but you can associate with it and it doesnt kill you (usually), thats why you will buy it, or at least thats why I will buy it, its not for connoisseurs but those those who want reliability over having mediocre over the unknown. King of poop, thats all I have to say.

Budweiser is in my opinion the worst American "beer" out there. Way too much sugar and carbonation, and I know why. That is an old technique to cover up lousy brew. Also sugar is one of the most addictive substances on earth, so why do you think it is so popular with alchoholics

Poured from the can into a pint glass.

A - Pours a light amber-yellow color, white head, some lacing that lasts a decent amount of time. Pretty standard.

S - Some hops and malt balanced (it's known for balance, after all), Earthiness.

T - Some corn, sugar, grain/wheat, alcohol. Balanced in taste as you drink it and doesn't really evolve.

M - Pretty carbonated, and has a crispness along with Earthiness that I actually consider unique to this particular beer. One of its strong points.

O - Budweiser. It is what it is, and that ain't bad. I'll never refuse one.
