Cheap corn grain. No hop presence. Cheap malts. Not a good beer.. image of mass production. Poster child of conforming. For what it is (fake beer). its halfway decent.. people who drink bud i beg you.. try other beers.. the corn is very noticable.. the low quality is in your face. If a Friend at a.pub bought me a.bud i would drink it.. would not wanna disrespect.him but its garbage

Buuuhhh.... What to say about Budweiser that hasn't been said already? Had on tap, bottle, can - take your pick. The beer is a pale straw color, slightly golden with remarkable clarity (hey, at least it has something going for it). Fizzy white head disappears so quickly that you can't even really call it a head. The aroma is almost non-existent - metallic hints, corns, grains, sulfur, maybe some leafiness but nothing that really resembles a hop. Taste is basically the same - corns, pale malts, and some graininess. No really hop flavor or even bitterness for that matter. Astringency and over-carbonation are king of the hill here. Thin, thin body with a super-dry, super crispy finish. Aftertaste has a thin, grain flavor but not much else.

Budweiser is slightly better than Bud Light. But really, what is that saying? I remember after years of drinking Bud Light, I finally had a Budweiser and thought it had so much flavor. Heh, how the times have changed.
