Head for the mountains... and jump off a cliff. This is not beer. I could taste no hops, no malt, nothing. This is as close to "poland spring" as beer can get. I think next time I'll put a lemon or something in it to give it some taste.

If you want Diarehha the next morning, take down a few Busch beers for the "Busch Mush".

This is a very bad tasting beer. I will say that it looks better in a glass than most cheap mass prodcued beers. It has more color and a tad better of a smell to it. But everything else is terrible.

Unlike its forgivable Budweiser counterpart, Busch is simply awful. It is everything a beer shoulddn't be--watery, weakly-colored, and tasteless.

Bottle: This is very similar to other macro beers except maybe a bit sweeter. I sometime wonder if people notice that macro beers all taste very similar in the end. Anyway, my uncle seems to really enjoy this last time I went to his place and I had this for a drink.
