Brewed by:
Missouri, United States

Style: Light Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.30%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed with two-row and roasted caramel malt for a rich color, and a blend of hand-selected premium American and Bavarian hops for balance and flavor. Budweiser Select spends approximately twice as long as regular beers in the brewhouse, which results in lower carbohydrate and calorie content after fermentation.

look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

A- Pours a translucent, very light golden hue. Big frothy head that doesn't retain or lace.

S- Metallic and corny. Very light. Hints of sweetness.

T- Pretty much like the smell. Main flavors are corn and rice malts with hints of sweetness creeping in. Hints of barley are slightly detectable. No hops are present.

M- Light, crisp, and very carbonated. Easy to drink.

Overall, not a great beer, but not bad for what it's trying to be. For lower calories and less offensive taste, this is where I go. Not quite as good as Mich Ultra for low calories, but solid. Still, not a craft beer, and not one that I drink unless I'm drinking a lot of 'em.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance - Pours a clear golden color with a centimeter thick, frothy head that dissipates very quickly. It leaves a nice lacing.

Smell - Has a subtle sweetness with corn and grains.

Taste - Identical to the smell. Very sweet with corn, grains, malts, and bread.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied with high carbonation.

Overall - There's nothing special to say about this beer. It's definitely drinkable, but it's just your common light lager. I'd like it better if the carbonation was a little lower.
