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.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Born on 4/10/2012, which makes this beer 44 days old.

Appearance: Pale golden-yellow. Poured into a pilsner glass, it makes a decent one-finger head that leaves no lacing.

Smell: There's a bit of malty grain and banana, but otherwise uneventful.

Taste: Slightly malty and bitter, but nicely balanced. Surprisingly bold finish with the taste of malt and rice. Delicious.

Mouthfeel: Thin, watery, and highly carbonated.

For the price, this beer is excellent, and I don't understand the snobbery about it. It's a good, no-bullshit beer: cheap, inoffensive, and tasty. Budweiser is my go-to-guy when I hit the supermarket.

look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

A: Piss-yellow straw in color (taste is similar) with a white foamy big head of fluff.

S: Beechwood Barrel aged goodness (yeah right!) yields a smell of clean fresh air with a tinge of malt and barley.

T: Not really that good (see apearance). No detectable hops or other quality flavors. Borders on watery, especially if you just drank a good beer.

M: Foamy and sudzy, lots of carbonation that leads to gas later in the night, more gas and gas pains in the morning.

O: Inexpensive good beer if you are already drunk and want to keep your buzz alive. Good beer to serve freeloaders when they come to your house for a party.
