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.

For the record, my rating is of the beer itself based on several of its characteristics. I'm not going to bash AB, their merchandizing, or the source of their ingredients. I've had much worse beers than this one, and I suspect that some of the extremely poor ratings reflect a personal need to "stick it to The Man" more than an honest evaluation of the product. If you hate AALs to the point that you can't rate them objectively, you probably shouldn't rate them. At the very least, you should familiarize yourself with the style guidelines for the beer you're rating.

Looks great, but not a lot of taste but very drinkable and pretty much everyone will drink it.

My favorite beer, it tastes good. Smooth it doesn't have bitter taste at all but not too watery. I'm not a beer snob iv'e tried expensive beers that taste like orange peels, coffee grounds, soup, rubbing alcohol its just not for me, i want a beer that tastes like beer. ice cold in bottle is the best. Iv'e had many bad ones tho that taste old, flat and bitter, so it's kind of hit and miss depending where u buy it at.

Can't believe I never rated this before. I've had this beer so many times when I was younger. One of my least favorite beers.

The American standard for American adjunct lagers.
The Coca-cola of beers.
All other American lagers are measured to this standard.
Thus, the King of Beers.
