What to say about the self proclaimed King of Beers? It’s not a horrible beer. It’s just far, far from the best. It is what it is. Lots of rice and cereal grain flavors. Very little hops character. A classier party beer for maximum consumption. Float trips, concerts, sporting events. Good ice cold on a hot summer day. A good Hefe is better though.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a chalice glass; best by 13 July 18.
A: Pours a crystal clear, golden color with a one inch, white head, low retention and no lacing to speak of.
S: Floral and apple notes with grainy maltiness, but very low aroma overall.
T: Light and refreshing with light maltiness and very light bitterness leading to refreshing finish.
M: Light bodied with low volume but persistent effervescence.
O: I find the unusually low scores a bit inconsistent with reality. Budweiser is an American adjunct lager and a very well made one. It is not going to have the “big” flavors of many other styles, nor should it, as it is basically designed to be light and refreshing (and is). No fan of the “Macrobreweries,” but it does not mean the beer is not well made.

Not as bad as I thought it would be, but still leaves a lot to be desired

Budweiser American Lager is among the best beers I have had. I understand why it is the King of beers. Sweet Malt and low hop bitterness make this beer very palatable and easy to drink and easy to enjoy. The first time I had this beer, I thought it was bad. In the can, it really had no flavor. Recently, I wanted to give this beer another try; this time in the bottle. Wow this beer was delicious and so enjoyable in the bottle. I love the wonderful full malt flavor and low hop bitterness. The smell is like yeasty bread from the oven. The feel is light like all lagers are. The color is nothing amazing neither is the head. I just enjoy this beer straight from the bottle so i tend to not care about color unless its a amber lager or a stout. The presentation of a Budweiser is classic and as American as it gets. Who wouldn't know that timeless red label? Many beer drinkers love to bash this beer. I was almost one of them, until I got some experience drinking many other brands of lagers. There is nothing to hate about Budweiser, it is absolutely a fantastic classic Brew. This beer goes with anything: bbq, burgers, franks, anything you please. Heck put it on ice cream! Nothing but thumbs up from me!

By the way, I called Anhueser-Busch with a question and they answer the phone and handle your concerns with respect and professionalism. Thats more than what I can say for Another brand ie: pabts

Pours a light amber with a bright whie head that quickly fades to a thin lace. Starts with an odd, hop-like aroma and sharp carbination. It has a weak, watery body for a lager. The flavor is like bitter bubblegum and soapy water.
