Where do I start with good old Busch? I'm reviewing this from a Midwest point of view. My extended family in Iowa drinks this stuff like it's going out of style. One, it's Midwest and two, they are Cardinals fans... "America's Team"! Me on the other hand, I don't buy it because I live on the East Coast, I like other lagers, and InBev products around here come from a toxic waste dump in North Jersey. While visiting family in Iowa, I decided to have a few at a local tavern. This beer on-tap from a place near to where it derives from, wasn't actually so bad. Looks, smells, and tasted like a typical adjunct. Golden appearance and a white foamy head that quickly dissipates. Payed a $1.50 a piece for a couple of pints and actually enjoyed them. After having it on-tap, I really couldn't complain, especially for the price.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance
Thick head with large bubbles. The head dissipates quickly. Poor lacing. Straw yellow body. Moderate carbonation.

Smell
Mild corn. Very faint barley.

Taste
Corn dominant. Smooth. Yeasty, fruity beer. One of the better cheap, corn dominant, adjunct lagers. Tastes good ice cold. The flavor sours as the beer warms up.

Mouthfeel
On the heavier side of light bodied. Smooth. Corn flavor lingers. No hop bitterness.

Overall
A good beer for chugging ice cold. A good fishing beer. Not as good as Rolling Rock.

Serving type: can

My ratings are high because I'm rating the old Busch Formula not this new/old formula Busch Bavarian junk.

The old Busch was great and had a nice bitter bite at the end. It went down smoothly and was well worth the price.

Busch Bavarian is horse piss
