Come on, people. I'm going 5 across the board on principle. Yes, I realize where I am and what the purpose of this site it. And I understand giving Bud a solid 5 is like citing Wins as an important stat on a sabermetrics site.

I don't care.

Give me a cold Bud any time, any place. I can finish off a night of craft beer with a Bud just as easily as starting a night of degradation with it.

It's like an old troublemaker friend who stood up for you when you were young that you keep lending a few bucks to as you grow older.

Pound for pound it may be my favorite beer.

Big thanks to quirkzoo for the extra! Limited edition American Flag label, 2012 vintage:

Pours like a glass of well hydrated hangover pee - champagne gold body stuffed with very apparent beading. A finger of fizzy white carbonation falls to a thin cap within seconds, that doesn't quite lace the glass.

Sweet grains, wet hay, corn starch... it smells like the t shirt you wore the night before but ditched after a less than successful keg stand.

Tastes like America.

the classic american beer, atleast anywhere down south. tastes ok. the price is right for what you are getting. the head disappears quickly after pouring. all in all its an ok brew. not my favorite but i wont pass one up! the beer has a decent taste, not what i would call great. the beer also has alot of carbination so it kind of feels like you are drinking an alcoholic soda.

Subtle aroma, mouthfeel and taste is great. slightly fruity aroma. finishes smoothly with little aftertaste. Very good session beer. Clear, golden color. 1 inch collar of foam in the glass. Slight bitterness is very appealing. I am not crazy about a beer that has an aftertaste that stays with me for a long time, so this beer works very well for me.
