This beer brings back a lot of memories for me. Growing up in the woods, woods that happen to be in the American South . . . I'm not sure if it is the fulfillment of a stereotype or simply mere happenstance that I was drinking Busch beer at many of the quintessential moments in my young life, including the moment my Buick's rear window was shot out at a party in the Ocala National Forest. However, in retrospect I can tell you that as far as adjunct lagers go, Busch holds a special place in my heart . . . and, objectively, a higher rating than trash like Natty and Miller Light. As others have stated, it definitely gives you less of a hangover, as long as you stay under the "twelve-pack-in-one-night" limit. There is a reason that there is a "Busch" beer and not an "Anheiser" beer; somewhere along the line, In-Bev must have realized that when it comes to cheap beer, people prefer short names and complex connotations. It's almost poetic, when you think about it. "Go to the Mountains with Busch."

Pours a straw gold with brilliant clarity. A soapy white head that fell fast and no real lace just a few spots. Nose is light corn and light grain. Thin and a only a hint of green apple and some corn sweetness. Hops are floral and light and go a bit grassy as the beer warms. Taste is clean and has only a mild hint of green apple, and DMS. NO diacetyl and this finishes with a bit of grass and hop bitter. No real fruitiness and a crisp carbonation. Balance between malt and hops was practically even and only during warming did the hops emerge. There was a touch of light acidity in the finish and this finished mostly dry but with a touch of sugary taste at the very end. Mouthfeel is thin and pleasant and a bit watery.
It's got less of an apple taste than some other beers I have rated but a thinner body overall. The DMS was in acceptable limits and this beer had only a bit of sourness to creep on to the palate as it warmed.
Style notes - the standard lager can have little to no malt aroma, fast fallihg head, light body from the use of adjunct and DMS is allowed in low levels. The dms did creep on to the palate in sufficient amounts to keep from wanting another one of these. BUT the green apple sweetness was less than some other beers like molson canadian an d even heineken so I teetered between 2.75 and 3.0 for a taste rating. I gave it the lower rating because I do nto want another.
