Busch and Busch Light are both brewed with a blend of premium American-grown and imported hops and a combination of malt and corn to provide a pleasant balanced flavor. Additionally, Busch Light undergoes a longer brewing process that produces a lighter body and fewer calories.

From a can. Clear golden color with white foam. Sweet grain aroma. Light and highly carbonated. A sweet corn note, but not much else. Not a lot going on, almost like a corn flavored seltzer.

Busch is a consistently good lager. It's perfect for backyard drinking and music concerts. I usually purchase it in cans and I'm enjoying one now while typing this review.

It' s somewhat sweet and always tastes fresh. A/B is known for their high standards at their factories. If you doubt me, visit one.

I enjoy Busch occasionally, and in the rare instance see it on tap, order one.

It's supposed to be a normal lager, but it's incredibly light. Makes Coors light seem strong.

The pour is golden yellow with a good amount of carbonation. The taste is grains, water, & faint hops. This beer reminds me of Budweiser with a little less character & I like the price. Cheers! C

While I’d rather just pick up Busch Ice, which is cheaper and has a higher ABV, beer doesn’t come much cleaner or crisper tasting than Busch. Head for the mountains!

So I’m doing some twerking outside the window of a Denny’s when I’m violently tackled—it’s the police—face first into an unopened can of Busch. I slide it into one of the spacious pockets of my JNCOs (50” pipes) just before I’m hoisted upright. Just when things are looking grim, my best mate Gordon Blevins slithers out of the pawn shop next door with a fist full of bills and the unmistakable swagger of a man who can now afford Cinnabon for dinner.

Gordon is brilliant. He convinces the officers that I am just that over-the-moon for a Moons Over My Hammy, which is true. He also informs them that I haven’t been quite right since I found out my step-cousin Cynfia is having triplets and I might not not be the dad. Once I’m out of the cuffs and comfortably seated with my Hammy, I remember the Busch swimming somewhere in the sea of denim below. A little spelunking does the trick, and I’m b’s deep in Busch.

Looks… yeah, it got em. Have you seen this design? It’s a focking snow-capped mountain range. Clamp a clothespin around your nostrils because what it boasts in taste, it lacks in scent. Like, it smells of Aunt Deberly’s full-coverage underwear I dug out from ‘twixt the futon cushions with my teeth. Feels like wet beer. Overall, I chose a number from the dropdown menu not even remotely commensurate with this beer's quality.

From a can. I hoped this would have been better than Busch Light, but it really wasn't. I found it to have more flavour, but not in a good way, half the case ended up being a drain pour.

Disgusting. Got a good deal on a 12 pack and could only force myself to drink 6. I have low standards for beer and this was disturbingly bad. Kind of reminded me of the way raw chicken smells.

I expected to hate this. Late night beer run in the county and the local corner store had this, bud light (never), and Keystone, among some crappy malt beverages like Steel Reserve. So I grabbed a quick case of Busch. Made sure it was nice and cold and cracked one open, expecting a funky flat corn water. But instead I was surprised to find and decent, cheap adjunct that had nothing negative going on. Honestly, on a hot day on the farm, this seems like it would hit the spot. It’s a pleasant surprise.

This isn't some awesome craft beer. But, damn is this shit good. Easy drinking, no after taste. Maybe a bit to light. For the price, the taste....this shit is great. This should be ABs premium beer, not Bud or Bud Light..
I don't have the money to spend on craft beers every day. So, this is one of my go to beers.
