2.18/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Literally piss colored, very carbonated, super filtered, with a stark white head that does not last at all.

Of course the aroma is not very detectable. There is some sweetness, some grain. But that's really it.

The taste is super watery, almost no existent. You get some carbonation, lots of beer-like sweetness (if that makes any sense), maybe a little grain (corn?), and no hop bitterness.

It's dry, crisp, refreshing, and super light. This tastes, feels, and drinks like a light beer.

The can does not lie when it says the beer is smooth. There is nearly no detectable trace of hops.

I reviewed this again just to see if I had a bad batch last time...but I realize I just simply don't like Busch. Not because I'm a critic or a connoisseur, because I'm neither. I just really don't like Busch. I don't hate it, but it's not worth buying for any occasion, in my opinion. There are much better budget beers out there, if cost is the issue.

I like most of AB's products, but this is just flat out not a good beer in my opinion. If you're looking for beer with a mild flavor, however, this is the place to go.

look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Pours light yellow with a fizzy white head that recedes quickly with little or no lacing.

Smell: Sweet corn

Taste: Not much. Some malt sweetness.

Mouthfeel: watery, nice carbonation bite.

This is a thirst quenching bland beer. It's easy to drink but very boring.

Serving type: can

1.3/5  rDev -34%
look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

Pours a clear light golden color, decent finger of heading and left no lacing whatsoever.

Smell is very feint. Slight corn husk and dextrin. Not much else.

Really nothing to taste here. Very watery, very sweet and just very bland.

Mouth is light bodied, heavily carbonated with a slight diacetyl film left in the mouth.

Well this one wasn't too good at all. Very tasteless, and kind of like drinking carbonated water with a touch of alcohol.

Serving type: can
