I figured I would give this beer a quick review. The 12 ounce bottle says freshest before October 10th.

Budweiser pours a golden hue with a one inch head that very quickly dissipated with no lacing to speak of.

The aroma is mostly grains with the barley and rice present. It has a sweetness as well.

The flavor exactly follows the aroma. The barley malt and rice are present but somewhat muted overall.

It does have a bit of sweetness and just the faintest touch of bitterness in the finish.

Overall this is really not as bad as the overall score here on BA and is pretty refreshing but I think you can find better beers in the style.

Easy drinking and tasty! Bready with a short finish. Reliable taste and always reasonably priced. It's a shame that the beer scene has become so snobbish over the last several years. There is nothing wrong with liking this style or other beers with "less flavor". Each style has it's purpose and comparing a Budweiser to something like an Old Rasputin is ridiculous. There is a reason that this beer sells like crazy. In the future I think the rating category of price should be included. This is one of my go-tos. For those who think they're too good for macro brews, get off your high-horse and lighten up. Not everything needs to display how "sophistcated" you are. LIFE IS GOOD! CHEERS!

24 Oz Can poured into glass
Look - Most people know this but it is clear and yellow with lots of bubbles. Lots of soapy foam and some glass lacing
Smell - musty grains. Aroma is similar to an old metal bucket or something. Sweet buttered rice.
Taste - Very sweet and fairly basic taste. The rice comes through as well as some malt. Not much in the way of any hops or bitterness. It's not offputting in any way and drinkable although i personally get tired of the rice flavor after 1 or 2. Carbonation is medium-high. Refreshing when ice cold.

Overall, fairly straightforward beer taste, not gonna really wow anybody. It isn't the best beer in the style but its not bad. Would certainly drink it if someone offered me. I give this beer a C+

I NEVER drink this but had one today leftover from some friends. Not bad at all, holds a decent white head, and refreshing on a Sunday afternoon. Probably won't be buying it, but wouldn't turn one down. Better than most other American mainstream beer, and better than 1/2 the myriad of craft beers that are springing up with fancy a$$ names LOL.
