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.

look: 1.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Poured from 16 oz. can into pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a very pale golden hue with a one-finger head that almost instantly dissipates. Little spots of lacing are left on the glass, barely anything though.

Smell: Nothing. Maybe a hint of metal and corn, but calling it a hint would be a generous statement.

Taste: "Sweet Diet Corn Flavored Seltzer Water" is what I'd call this. It's so watery and sweet, there is barely any corn flavors, or any flavors for that matter. It's ok though because that nasty metal flavor most AALs carry is also heavily watered down.

Mouthfeel: Light body, heavy carbonation, refreshing and crisp. Average for the style.

Overall: Drink only to get sloshed, this has no flavor!

Serving type: can

Very clear slightly yellow beer, Highly carbonated.
Weak Smell and taste, hint of lemon juice? tastes like carbonated water, beer flavoring and lemon juice.
Overall not a terrible beer for the price good for college kids who leave half full cans all over the place
