Pours an extremely clear piss-yellow with a thin, snow white head, which quickly melts into nothing. You want to see a beer with absolutely no head retention or lacing? This is it.

Delicate malt with a slightly pungent sour aroma. Not too appealing.

Very subtle flavor profile. I can pick up a very little bit of crisp malt flavor. Not much. Mostly just flavorless and watery.

There's more to the mouthfeel than most others in this style. But overall it's pretty thin, watery and over carbonated.

This used to be my go-to beer before a world of possibilities was opened to me in the form of craft beer. Mainly due to the price. It's pretty off-putting now, of course. But you could do worse.

Kind of nostalgic about Busch because I drank a lot of it in college and somehow developed a taste for it. You've got to be thirsty to appreciate it. Light mouth feel and rather high carbonation make it a good "beverage" beer, especially refreshing after mowing the lawn in 90-degree heat, or with picnic food outside on a hot day. Almost borders on being a "lite" beer. Kind of a sour aftertaste, but not that bad. Best when drunk quickly, not a beer to be nursed by the connoisseur. Somehow I prefer it to Bud and Coors. This is not a great beer, but one of the most drinkable cheap beers - 12-packs are sometimes on sale for $6.95 at the local Rite Aid. Can't beat that.
