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.

12oz : tulip

Clear yellow with a thin, foamy white head.

Adjunct, lightly sweet, cereal malt in the nose. Fairly similar in the palate. Very little to no hop character.

Medium body per the style (medium-light overall), with medium carbonation.

Fairly standard for the style, though one of the more bland/drinkable examples compared to the mostly unpleasant examples usually found.

Budweiser, the standard of mediocrity, the king of shit, you could say, but you could be any where in the world ordering a drink, but if you'd ask them if the drink was better or worse than a Bud, they'd be able to tell you because it's basically the average crap beer out there, but not so crappy as to offend you but crappy though its decent enough to handle, i guess. Pint.

A: yellow of course, not much to look at, but who cares? No head or lacing.

S: not much for smell, corn?, wheat?, grain?, still who cares

T: OK, corn, little hops, wheat? to be specific, not offensive or good, but smack in the middle, its OK and you can use it as a standard for comparison.

M: Doesnt really matter what it feels like, it doesnt make you hurl so its ok, right?

O: If youre some where and you dont know what to get, Budweiser is you standard, any where in the world, you know what it means, you may not like it entirely but you can associate with it and it doesnt kill you (usually), thats why you will buy it, or at least thats why I will buy it, its not for connoisseurs but those those who want reliability over having mediocre over the unknown. King of poop, thats all I have to say.
