This is a great example of why, up until the recent craft explosion, American beer had such a bad reputation. If I want bad tasting water, I'll turn on the tap.

I run hot and cold on Budweiser. At times I love it, at other times I've been disappointed. The last 12-pack I bought, however, was splendid. I enjoyed it very much. Drank every one of them with a smile on my face. AH!

I'm less than enthusiastic about Budweiser. It's the beer favored by people who either looking simply to get smashed for cheap, those whose palates have been eroded by smoking, or people who probably shouldn't be drinking. It looks like a beer and it feels like a beer, but the aroma and flavor are far from captivating.

Budweiser is great on tap. Surprisingly, slightly difficult to find on tap though.
It's very good in a bottle or can. It always tastes fresh. It is also very easy to find in can or bottle form (needless to say).
The price is right and as other people have said, quality control is second to none.

It has a nice color, is easy to drink and is carbinated well.

I have consumed several hundred different types of beers and like most of them. I like Budweiser and purchase it for hot summer days in North Carolina.

It never fails to baffle me how the urine water Bud Light has at least the same popularity if not more than the original Bud. Budweiser has a fuller feel, better taste, and hell a higher ABV for what it's worth. It's not like you're getting many less calories drinking light anyway, and to me Bud is just a far superior beer in every way. It's still not good, but at a highly affordable cost it really isn't the worst thing out there.
