Picked up a case of this for the heat wave. Poured into my clown shoes pint glass.

A - Pours a crystal clear piss hue with a one finger white head that fades to a thin halo. Pretty standard.

S - Aromas of sweet malts, grains, and corn.

T - Taste is slightly below standard. Sweet malts, grain, and corn. Better adjuncts out there.

M - Mouthfeel is thin and watery which goes hand in hand with adjuncts.

O - Overall this is what it is. Slightly below standard for my liking. Easy drinking macro.

I can't really say anything bad about Busch. It's very smooth for the price, Tastes pretty good for what it is, And is cheap. What else could you possibly want for a party?. A PBR slightly beats it in the taste category but it matches virtually everywhere else. A much better choice than Natty or Milwaukee's. Only real complaint is that it didn't get me drunk as quickly as I had hoped

For the sake of experimentation, I'm holding a little tasting of beers I happened to have but would never purchase myself. This is the third.

This is at least as pale as the Natty Ice I just had and looks about the same: bubbles bring up a small white head that dies off quickly and leaves patches struggling to survive that drop tiny spots of lacing.
Corn husk...grains? A touch of not funk but...rot? If it wasn't so watery (it actually almost smells the way bottled water does), it would be downright offensive. Not that it isn't offensive.
At least the rot doesn't translate to flavor...oh, there it is in the finish (ghostly but there). Other than that, it's pretty much seltzer.
Super crisp, pretty watery, heavy carbonation, just slightly (not terribly) slick.
I was surprised to see this beer ranked lower than Natty Ice and Milwaukee's Best and the like; after all, how can a regular old adjunct, and not even a light, be that bad?
This is how.
