12oz can poured into a pint glass

A: Poured with a one finger head of fizz that fizzed out into absolutely nothing. Literally there was no type of head or even a ring of foam on this beer. Color of pee. Not much carbonation rising at all.

S: Very faint husky grains and very light corn. Hard to smell much.

T: Well...tastes like water with some alcohol in it. Seriously. Aftertaste has a little bit of corn in it. At least it doesn't taste bad I guess.

M: So incredibly watery. Light carbonation is there.

O: If you drink crappy beer, at least don't drink this. It sucks.

Serving Type - In a can, the way high quality easy drinking all American beer should be.

Appearance - Golden yellow similar to the nectar of the gods. As with other things a little head before you get to the good stuff.

Smell - It's the smell of a summer day hanging with your buddies kicking back and having a good time 30 beers at a time.

Taste - Smooth and crisp easy drinking. Let's be honest we drink it to get drunk and it goes down nice and smooth. If I was drinking for taste, I would have a fruit umbrella drink.

This is a great all around beer. No matter what you are doing from working on the car to hanging with friends its the right beer.

Nothing beats a cold Busch Light on a hot day...except maybe a warm Busch light in Death Valley.
