Presentation: 12oz can. Stamped born on date. Claims to be "Born of Natural Ingredients, Smooth, Refreshing Beer" ... "Brewed from water, barley malt, cereal grain, hops and yeast. There is nothing artificial in this product."
Appearance: If this beer was any clearer, it'd be called Zima. Extremely pale/straw, clear with a tighly carbonated foam lace.
Smell: Kind of funky smelling. Like cold raw meat. Some grain notes too.
Taste: About the thinnest mouthfeel I've ever tasted. A very watery beer. Malt flavour is very light. Dextrin and corn sweetness, especially as the beer warms. Hops are present, only lending a mild floral flavour and touch of lemon bitterness. DMS flavours (cooked veggies) as the beer warms. Finishes slightly dry with grain notes. All I can think of is "corn" ... you really pick-up on the addition of corn adjuncts. It changes everything from the flavour to the alcohol, chemically. Plus ... it's a cheap addition.

Had this today, and I enjoyed it. To start off, it's domestic lager from U.S.A, so it gets some bias in my book. It's mostly clear, bright yellow, with a clean aroma. After taste is clean and short as well.
Tastes and feels good. I mean, I drank a whole quart quicker than I expected.
I bought a quart for $1.73 before tax, local; but I would pay $3.25-75.
Don't have much to say about this beer, except that I would recommend it for a party situation, when you want a lot of beer, or something to start off the night.

This is what I refer to as "lake beer" or as my father says "lawnmower beer". Basically a great beer for a hot day spent outdoors. If you worked all day in the 103° heat sweating, tired and soar, and say someone gave you and ice cold can of Busch. You would think the sweet nectar of the gods was being poured down your gullet by the almighty hand of Zeus himself. Okay, maybe I'm embellishing a bit. The taste is average but it's very drinkable and enjoyable. I love all types of beers, even a $2 can of Busch. Next time you find yourself on a hot day get a cooler full of these and you might hear yourself say "you know, this is not bad at all "

Well, believe it or not I never had a regular ol' Busch! Bought a single can in the discount bin for 50 cents a few weeks back. Anyway, sampling right now on 8/18/14. Can chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a vintage 'Busch" thumb-print goblet that I bought for 59c in 'like-new' condition at the local Salvation Army Store about a month ago.
Pours a pale straw-yellow in color with a very thin white head. Some very minor spotty lacing is seen as is the norm for this kind of beer. The aroma is of some light grains for the most part. The taste is pretty much the same and is watery. Light bodied and nothing special.
