Hands down the best American Macro Beer out there. Good in any serving type, can, bottle, and tap. Appearance crystal clear golden color with a head that lasts a few minutes. Smells like a beer should. Taste, smooth pure and very clean. Mouthfeel and drinkability are exceptional, best in class and I would say best in the industry. You can never go wrong when ordering a Budweiser. This is America's beer drinking beer. It may not be the most complex or have the best palate presentation, or offer a fruity or nutty flavor, but who would want that flavor if they were actually considering buying an American Macro Beer in the first place?

The King.
Perfect 5% ABV.
Readily available.
Decently priced.
The King, for good reason.

I drink this all the time and love it. When I am not drinking this all the time, I am unhappy. I think it is perfect from a can, a bottle or on tap. I prefer cans due to 30 packs not coming in bottles, plus, I like to crush the empty cans after I crush the beer down my throat. Bottles are good to smash but a mess to clean up. Regarding the taste, I can't really find dramatic differences between can vs. bottle. This beer is life blood.

ok, let everyone remember that this is an american light adjunct lager, and that is what i am reviewing it as.
if anyone can find a better example of the style, please, let me know.
A- pours extremely pale yellow color. bursting with carbonation. low head retention.
S- smells like, well, budweiser. corn and Co2
T- light and refreshing, this beer is perfectly balanced with absolutely no off flavors. impressive considering the color and body.
M-extremely dry and prickly on the tongue. quite refreshing.
D- you know this beer. you now how drinkable it is.

i almost never buy this beer, but when i do, i am never disappointed. it is exactly the same overtime. it would go great with just about any meal.

this beer gets far less credit than it should on BA.

Pale yellow color with snow white foam. Exceptional clarity. Subtle aromatic hop aroma with clean esters and faint banana. Mouthfeel is light, crisp, and refreshing. Outstanding clean finish which easily leads to another sip. Probably the most consistent, refreshing and drinkable beer on the planet.

This beer is not as bad or good as people opinion on this forum. For my taste it is a good beer for hot day or party. No foul after taste like ome Miller products.

Appearance : yellow with no head

Smell : like a beer which is not bad

Taste: taste like some water with after taste of corn or rice whic is not bad. Nothing defensive about this beer but nothing stands out.

Mouthfeel: light and watery

Overall: It is not trying to be a IPA or stout ! It is a mass produced AA Lager. It holds its own against any American Adjuncts Lager. It is the most popular beer in the country, not because it has no taste, as some contend, but because the flavors blend together seamlessly. Good word describe Budweiser seamlessly!

General Comments: This beer does not seem very popular among aficionados, but I must admit that I like it quite a bit. This style of beer obviously aims for a light, drinkable tone with a mild and bittersweet taste. In spite of what you might think about the macro brews (and American adjunct lagers), this beer accomplishes its purpose very well.

Appearance: I Poured from a can to a glass. The beer is golden-yellow in color with a hearty, frothy head that lingers just long enough, with a few bubbles.

Smell: The smell is weak, and not terribly impressive, but not offensive either. If I could get anything, there seemed to be a slight, malty undertone.

Taste: There is an excellent balance of malts and hops, with a slightly bitter finish (not too bitter though). I detected a hint of cream corn in the flavor. Overall, the flavor was pretty mild, but definitely present but without an aftertaste.

Mouth feel: Refreshing, but not bland either. There is a "good"/ balanced level of carbonation, and the beer does not tend to go flat too quickly.

Drinkability: Bud's drinkability is another one of its highlights. Its quite refreshing, mild, with an interesting blend of flavors that makes it refreshing on a warm day. It is an excellent choice to serve with salty snacks, or a BBQ meal.
