A: Clear, pale urine yellow with minimal.

S: Over cooked grains.

T: Mineraly, slightly sweet carbonated water.

Mouthfeel: No body and excessive carbonation.

O: This is a great beer if you are in University and hosting a party and want to have a fridge full of beer. In fact when I was in University we used to dink Bush because it was there. Thank God I got older and came to my grew a pallet.

Wanted to revisit my youth, so I picked up some Busch beer.

First time I ever poured this into a glass. A clear, pale straw color as to be expected. The white head disaspeared quickly.

Taste is Foul. As the beer warms, a sourness comes through.

Cheap, nasty beer. Should be avoided.

Poured from 16oz. "tall boy" can into pint glass.

Another one of these reviews that you just gotta grade on a curve, because it is what it is - an American adjunct, thus it will be graded in comparison to other macro adjuncts, and not compared to craft beer.

A: American adjunct. Light yellow, good clarity, lots of carbonation bubbles, fluffy white 2 finger soda-like head that disappears fast and has a little bit of fake alchemy lace.

S: American adjunct, lol. Boiled corn, maybe some rice, little bit of malted barley and notes of hops try to make their way through a little bit.

T: Has a little more flavor than a macro "light" beer, as you'd expect, almost tastes like Budweiser. Full flavored boiled corn with a weak attempt at some cheap light hops. Tastes just like poor man's Budweiser.

M: What can I say? Feels like a soda, just like most other macro adjuncts - too much fake carbonation, watery, no body, designed for high drinkability.

O: I'll take this over Bud Light or Miller Lite (even though it's not a "light" beer), I'd probably take a Coors Light over a Busch though. It's good when your wallet is empty and you want a half decent, average adjunct beer to get drunk on.

I've certainly had more than my fair share of Busch, and I'd probably drink it again. It's cheap, and it's not bad for what it is. Compared to others of the style, it's actually not a bad choice at all, and there's nothing to really dislike about it.
