Another grocery store bargain I couldn't refuse....a whole dollar for 22oz cold beer!
A - Golden yellow and clear with a flimsy white head that's gone in 60 seconds. Tons of tiny bubbles stream up to the top of this headless brew as if making an effort to bring back some semblance of a cap, but it ain't happening. Looks pretty blah.
S - Sweet corn and some Saporro-like ricey aromas. Pretty damn good effort for the style and price. Unlike many macro lagers, I don't really dislike the smell of this one. It's sweeter smelling than most of it's brethren.
T - Well, more of the nose really. Sweet rice-cake blandness at first with some sweet cooked corn at the end. Has a bit of tangy metallic detectable hops on the back end. I'm actually pretty impressed. Goes downhill quickly with warmth, so drink up!
M - Fizzy, light bodied with a syrupy coating sweetness that I don't care for. Finishes clean after a raspy carbonation. Like eating crackers.
D - This is one of the least offensive macro lagers that I've had. It's not really tasty, but it's basically flavorless....so it's hard to like and hard to dislike. Does that make sense? So for those who just want to slake a thirst and get a buzz, this is highly drinkable. But for me, it just doesn't hold my interest. Labatts Blue, PBR, and Stag have much more character.

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.
