Busch and Busch Light are both brewed with a blend of premium American-grown and imported hops and a combination of malt and corn to provide a pleasant balanced flavor. Additionally, Busch Light undergoes a longer brewing process that produces a lighter body and fewer calories.

I just saw this "beer" at $7.50 for a 20 pack in Allenstown,NH. I bought the Brooklyn Lager for $8.99 a six pack. There must be a minimum qualification for a drink that is considered beer. Busch by any stretch of the imagination certainly does not qualify.

A: Pours a clear straw yellow with a thin layer of fizzy white mousse that dies away within seconds.

S: Not much to speak of here. A little bit of corn and dextrin, perhaps some very light biscuit-like malt notes. I'm not picking up on any hops whatsoever. As the beer warms an unpleasant cooked vegetable and grain husk aroma emerges. Not appealing in the least.

T: Not a lot to talk about. Notes of mineral water, grain husks, lemon, corn, corn, and uh, more corn. Corn water is what this is.

M: Feels thin and a touch oily in the mouth. So light-bodied that it is insusbtanial.

O: I don't want to rag on this beer for simply being a style that I generally try to avoid, but I agree with Jason here. This really is crap beer that is good to have once in a while just to remind yourself that there are better beers out there.

Appearance – Clear light yellow colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an above average amount of carbonation showing and there is almost no lacing. The head lasted for around 3 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, bread, corn

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation. I can taste bread mixed with malts and some corn. There is also another cooked vegetable type taste going on, but i can't quite put my finger on it. It finishes with a corn/grainy aftertaste.

Overall – Not good. I mean, a lot of the adjunct beers taste similar, so I knew what I was getting.. but this one has a bit of a odd cooked vegetable type taste to it that I really didn't enjoy. It didn't even do the job of being a refreshing after hockey beer - which is what I expect from adjuncts. I wouldn't buy this again.

Served on tap at SeaWorld Orlando. Thank God, I didn't have to buy it to try it!. It has the color of slightly yellow water. It smells like sweet corn water. It tastes like sweet corn water. And only the mildest hint it may have ever been near barley! Another fine AB-InBev product!
