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: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear golden with a 1-finger bone-white head that quickly dissipates. No lacing left on the glass.

Smell: Sweet corn adjuncts, metal

Taste: Mainly corn and water, but the corn is actually discerable in taste, unlike other AALs. Other notable taste is metal, but no overbearing.

Mouthfeel: Light and crisp, high carbonation, easy as hell to guzzle down.

Overall: Certainly not the worst AAL out there, but a little bit under average. Good to get drunk off of though.

A- Pours a straw yellow and you can see the carbonation. End with a frothy white head that disappears pretty quickly.

S- Really smells like nothing almost like a normal macrobrew. Grassy hay like smell.

T- For being a macrobrew it really does not taste that bad it is a good cheap beer at any bar.

M- Feels like water

O- Overall this is the "King Of Beers" and Budweiser has been around for so long it is impossible to not like its iconic image in some way. I'll drink it especially when i can find it for dollar drafts at almost any bar in my area.

Not a craft brew, not a micro-brew, but still the "King of Beers." Everyone has drank Budweiser before, I'm not saying anything in this review that will be especially gorundbreaking.

Appearance - Almost totally transparent golden color with no head and sign of retention or lacing. It's kind of like wearing yellow shooting glasses.

Smell - Very light smell of grains, light hops. No real "smell" to speak of like a craft beer fan would be used to.

Taste - Taste is similar to the smell. Light hoppy maybe, slight tang.

Mouthfeel - Watery, carbonated. Smooth enough for a cheaper beer.

Overall - If I am going to buy mass-market beers, this will be it. Not real exciting for someone who sticks solely to craft beers, but it's good enough. It does disturb my gastrointestinal tract if drank in copious amounts, but it's not bad. Rather drink this than any of the macro light beers
