this is the definition of mass brewing, not only in the idnuvidual time spent on brewing this specific beer im drinking,but also the marketing and taste.

this taste is not good. ok? but it is intensly thought over, and planned.

budweiser is the most popular beer in america maybe the world i dont know. and that is why its so boring. the taste is so average.

the look the smell averythign about this beer in unchallenging.

little bit o bread, little bit of hops, like a hop. and not much.

a beer for people who dont care.

So I received a 12 pack of this for my birthday. I graciously accepted it, but now it is taking up space. Perfect time for a tick.

This pours a pale yellow and the light side of the spectrum, tons of cascading bubbles and a thing clinging of white head. The aroma has faint malt character with a musty corn sweetness. I have never taken the time to concentrate on the aroma of this on the past, but damn... this is pretty bad! The taste isn't much better. The little amount of taste that comes through the prickly carbonation is corn, bread, and a bit of a twang. No hops to speak of. The mouthfeel is atrocious, light as a feather and carbonated to the max. Overall, I think this 12 pack is going to be difficult to get rid of.
