look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Perfect clarity with a soapy, foamy white head that dissipated into soapy lacing. Nose is sweet, somewhat cloying, canned vegetables, grain husk. Taste follows nose with a sweet, sour, tangy sharpness with some slight bitterness at the end. Grain husk, slightly grassy and vegetal. Extremely crisp due to high carbonation, and mouthfeel is on the thin end of medium. American Budweiser isn't nearly as bad as the pretentious beer snobs want to think it is, especially fresh on draft. Look at any of the reviews with low marks, how many people actually took the time out to review the beer and state why it "sucks"? It doesn't. At all. Budweiser isn't a microbrew, but it does take craft to brew something so ubiquitous yet satisfying. This beer will still be selling when the IPA fad goes the way of the dodo.
