Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: kbub6f on 11-21-2000

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.

That advert. Yea...

The thing is I love a well made macro/adjunct crisp lager.
So after seeing that ad I bought a 24 oz can to see if Budweiser lives up to standards of that style (I remember thinking they don't) Trust me, I love this style when it's done right.

Sorry though, Bud. It's a very poor adjunct lager. I'd be happy for you to poke fun at craft hipsters if you can live up to the "no fuss" style you think is great.
Your beer is sweetcorn juice with zero hop taste.
PBR has a hop finish to it. So do many other decent macro lagers.

I guess I should stick to some peach pumpkin ale.
Don't Shock Top do that flavor? (made by Anheuser-Busch, bahahahaha)

Solid all around festive beer! Besides that, the "King" label is truly self proclaimed.

It's fine to drink, but doesn't offer much.

Brilliant straw color with a golden hue. 2 finger head lasting a minute or two. Good lacing and activity.

Bitter flavors of corn. Slightly skunky and sugary. Very faint watery taste.

Light body with excessive carbonation. Short and faint bitter finish.

Overall : Extremely bland, but still feels kinda fresh.

A descent everyday drinker, but it really lacks flavor. The best thing about these mass produced beers is that they are consistent.

Watery swill. I've had this many times, even in Europe. Consistency I'll give it, but refreshing.....no. Always gives me a headache. And even worse, it's not american owned.
But hey...if your taste buds ( no pun) prefer this, then so be it. I'd take ginger ale over this.
