Drinking out of a can, Let's see how this compared to regular Busch.

Aroma : light floral, rice, grain.

Flavor : it's not bad. There is an overall fakiness to it that i could go without, but hey - its a near-beer. It's like a slightly less flavorful Busch and its definitely better than Busch light. A mighty try. Tastes like some fake rice, and a lot of nothing at all, but there's that undercurrent of barley malt, and that's nice too.

Mouthfeel : it's a beer. Fizzy, light.

Overall : The box is decorated with awards. I wouldnt go that far. It is however, better than Busch light and has less calories to boot. Not as good as Busch regular of course, and thats to be expected. Sure, I'd have another.

Poured into a pilsner, why not.

Bland, boring, lacking in flavor, aroma, and body, looks like pee. No lacing, decent carbonation, maintained a 1 1/2 finger head for a little while before dissipating into a thin film . Tastes of slightly sour corn and cooked vegetables. Good for quenching your thirst or washing down cheap pizza and burgers and not much else, with half the calories of a soda. Drinks like water.

A: Pours a crystal clear pale to medium golden yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass and some faint lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall sudsy white head that quickly reduces to a small to medium sized patch of very thin film and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of grainy malts with some corn adjuncts as well as some very light aromas of floral/grassy hops.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of grainy malts with moderate flavors of rice and corn adjuncts but without a lot of sweetness. There are light flavors of grassy hops which impart a light amount of bitterness.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Thin/watery.

O: Not bad but I did not have very high expectations for this beer - at least it tastes like beer and is not as watery as some of the lights beers from BMC breweries.

From the 12 fl. oz. can marked: 12117-CE70. Sampled on January 25, 2013.

Instead of making an automatic assumption on this non-alcohol beer I prefer to review it based on the style it represents. Non-Alcohol beers usually look straw or golden yellow, have a grainy aroma and flavor and are watered-down light.

Busch NA is all of that. The color is golden yellow with virtually no head. But it looks pretty much like it should so I give that part a decent rating.

The nose is grainy malts with a clean crispiness at the end. The taste is about the same with a subtle sweetness too. The body is light. It is comparable to other low alcohol beers in its class and it is reasonably priced.
