An American adjunct lager brewed here in Canada on license by Labatts. Accepted a generous offer of a can, figuring what the heck, I haven't tried this one and frankly wouldn't go out of my way to do so. Why not capitalize? Perhaps the most translucent beer I have yet to see, almost clear with just the barest hint of pale straw tint. Massively over-carbonated as would be expected, standard fizzy soda water approach to imbibing alcohol that caters to mainstream palates. Hey, it is what it is. Its an affront to good beer but we still live in a world where a preference for mediocrity and playing it safe drive people's decisions. For what its worth, this beer tastes like corn, some stale grainy malt, maybe a little shortbread sweetness, some green grass, but its all buried under bubbles and this brew is outstanding in its major lack of conspicuous flavors. The "longer brewing process" seems to have napalmed all the flavor along with the dreaded calories. I have had adjunct lagers where you can at least taste said adjuncts. I did taste more sweetness and cooked flavors as it warmed up, but alas here's where the cardboard and plastic cutlery notes also emerge. Crisp clean finish is an asset I suppose, although here some grainy alcohol still crashes the party. Really quite fucking awful but the sweet ain't so sweet without the sour, yes?

Poured from a 16 ounce can purchased for a buck at the local quick mart.
A: Pale, clear yellow with almost no head.
S: Mild with some cereals. No real hop characteristics.
T: Very bland, not much going on. It is refreshing though.
M: Very watery. A certain crispness from the carbonation.
O: Unimpressive. There are better versions of this style. There are also worse ones.

This is a surprisingly refreshing beer, no it doesn't have much of a strong flavor and it does go down easy. It does remind me of a mountain stream, its really smooth and the almost over carbonation gives it a little extra "pop" thats relaxing. I like it better than big sister Budweiser. Sure its far from great, its really mediocre and a decent choice if you're tight on money. Its also not bad to drink all day while fishing. Its a cheap beer, its drinkable cold and quickly.

I grew up seeing the Busch Beer commercials and never really drank until I was in my mid twenties, fearing that it would be a bad beer. I was really surprised how easy and drinkable Bucsh Beer is and the lack of hangover it produced. It pours light golden, with average carbonation, and a light head. It has a ricey, malty taste, with hints of wheat and sweetness. There is a little edge, with an average aftertaste, and it is not very filling. It's not the worst beer, but not the best beer either, good for when your working out in the hot sun...
