Budweiser is still a top selling beer despite precipitous sales declines in the last decade. Recently saw 6 pack tallboys on sale for 5 so what the hell, it's been awhile. Appearance is golden with foamy head that quickly fades away, the beer stays highly carbonated. Smell has a adjunct scent to it but mostly neutral. Taste is a bit bland, the aftertaste is slightly sour. Mouthfeel is crisp and smooth. Overall much less bitter than I remember but not a bad beer at all, I never turn it down when offered but rarely buy it.

I got this in a 40 this time.

Smell - Humid gym. Rice.

Taste - Excess water from minute rice. Slight corn hint. Bottom 1/4" tasted really bitter and musky. I dumped that. Who cares. Typical bud.

Mouthfeel - Foamy enough to remind you that this isn't water.

Overall. Not bad as a 40 really, but the price and the last 1/4" lose it. $3.12 for this 40, compared to $2.75 and $2.50 for malt liquor 40's that are decidedly better in the spirit of a 40. I'll get this if I'm craving a 40 and Bud Light is the only other 40 in the store.
