In the spirit of America I bought my annual six-pack of Budweiser in cans. In a deep ice chest that sat for 5 hours bringing them down to optimal consumption temperature (ice fucking cold).

Pours the color of beer. Head towers for about a good minute or so then reduces down leaving random splats around the glass as I work my way quickly through the glass.

It is incredibly important to not let Budweiser warm, to any real degree. In its ice cold state there is nothing wrong with this beer. No major flaws, but also not much to contemplate.

I wouldn't make this beer more hoppy. I do wonder what it might taste like without rice - but I'm not entirely convinced it would be better.

I finished the sixer over two days. See you next year, BUDdy. You still have a friend here in NY.

Bud is a pretty good adjunct lager, very light in flavor but drinkable-especially in the summer, I like the fact that it has good ingredients and no preservatives.

Just average all around. Not a terrible beer. Just not one of my favorites. I do get it every now and then. So it’s very drinkable. Usually wind up having one at a bbq. Cheers. Update: Had Budweiser on tap for the first time last night. So good. Cheers again.

This is what it is and there's a place for this beer. My brother-in-law calls it an appetizer beer, one that you drink to quench thirst before enjoying something else. It won't spoil your appetite before you dive into hops, alcohol and Belgian sugar. Also when you're fatigued by such things. Anyway, I haven't rated this so : palest yellow, cereal hop smell and taste, light refreshing feel. If rather have a kitsch or helles, but I'm not pouring it down the drain.

Very underrated IMO. Refreshing and not a bad taste at all.

Average lager, despite the hype and advertising budget. Pours clear golden with thick airy head, aroma is faint cereal, taste is more cereal and almost no hops. Refreshing, but not much else to say in the way of flavor.

This is a classic beer. One of the most American beers of all-time. I honestly like it, but it's average. It has quite an average taste. It's a truly an average beer nowadays. I'll drink this whenever there's no beer I like it at a bar. It tastes surprisingly good on tap!

I'm not sure why this has such a low rating compared to other beers in its category. It's a pretty decent well rounded lager, I'd even put it in the same league as Coors banquet. Light years better than bud light at the very least.
