Budweiser SelectBudweiser Select

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.

I would be nicer and say this was easy to drink, cause most light beers are, but this was just bad tasting, and it didn't even have much flavor. It's like bud light with a little twang, barely just touches your front taste buds, i like a beer to go a little further back on my tongue.
This beer sucks. There is no aftertaste cause it attacks the front taste buds. Seriously i monitor what taste buds are active when i drink.
This beer is thin, has no smell, and tastes like crap. I could barely drink it.

lol, i found this thin, slender format can hidden away in the bottom corner of the fridge. it had fallen off the shelf and had been buried for a year and a half without anyone seeing it. a best by date of may 7, 2007. haha.

very pale golden straw color. clear. some fizzy head that soon fades to wisps and thin ring. some initial thin lace, but it fades away eventually.

aroma has very faint noble hops and a whiff of malt - or more precisely, like plain saltine crackers.

palate of watery grains and minuscule malt. slight hint that yeast was at one time use to ferment this thing. microscopic trace of noble hop. clean watery finish.

thin, fizzy and watery. what else to expect?

Poured a very pale yellow, with very little foam. Nothing exceptional with this beer. After awhile, all Bud's taste the same. This is a good beer on a hot day or while sitting around watching sporting events. Average taste, average, average, average.
