A-Oh that unmistakeable Macro look. Pale yellow, quickly diminishing head. Small, ugly traces of death on the along the glass.

S-Sweet and corny. Comparable to pretty much every other Macro. Busch Light is Busch, Busch is Busch Light.

T-More offensive than some other adjunct lagers. Do not let this beer warm. Imbibe as fast as possible. Thin tasting, sweet, a bit of grain.

M-Watery. Hard to call it mouthfeel when there is nothing much to feel.

D-Yes, I can drink this beer very easily when I am looking to get drunk for cheap.

I will take High Life, PBR, Gansett, and maybe even a few others before I go in on this beer. Heck I will even take Busch Light before this.

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.
