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.

There's a reason they call it the king of beers. There's also a reason it's the number one selling import, non-European beer in Europe, and the fastest growing beer in the world by volume. Despite what beer snobs may think, the vast majority of beer drinkers like a light, American-style lager beer. Bud is the quintessential model of that style. Their quality control is absolutely second to none. I've met with the management a number of times and their penchant for quality is amazing. So, Bud? It delivers exactly what it promises, a light, refreshing beer that is right down the middle of the road; not hoppy and not malty. If you want a smooth, easy-going beer, Bud is, well,... the king of beers.

Budweiser seems to be the Nickelback of beers - universally hated by the critics, but still insanely popular. Me, I've always enjoyed it for what it is - a smooth drinking beer that's great after a hard day.

Appearance: Pale (and I mean very pale) yellow, minimal head.

Smell: Nothing especially noticeable actually. Hint of sour grain much like Tusker, but less noticeable. Mostly just a slight metallic grain scent.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Very carbonated, like a pop. Clean flavor with a hint of pleasant sweetness (this sweetness comes out more when it's in the bottle). I like it for what it is.

Overall: Like I said, I enjoy it. Call me crazy, but for what it is, it's a pleasant drinking beer. Much better than some of the garbage out there in the more budget priced sections. For an affordable, everyday beer, it's the one I go for.
