Above average bottom shelf AAL. I grew up watching the TV adds for this one during football games. I used to find the "old school" cans in the woods when I was a kid--obviously somebody who used to live nearby was a fan. I'll get this when it's available and priced right.

The definition of "value lager". It's so-so and tastes kinda bad but you can drink them if you have to. Ringing endorsement eh?

I purchased a 12 pack of this from a local gas station. I was not expecting much but the limited edition Autumn/Hunting can artwork was cool to look at least.

Busch pours a clear golden hue with a decent head but there is very little lacing left after a short period of time.

The aroma is actually kind of harsh with a bit of sweetness. I can notice some corn and other grains.

The flavor is crisp and slightly sweet with hints of corn and other grains but the bitterness in the finish is not the most pleasant.

This unfortunately was not a very good beer. However I have had worse so that is something.

Probably tastes better coming up than going down.

Doesn't necessarily taste bad. Just very weak, even as AALs go. Nose is weird and plasticky? I do get a bit of hops on the finish, but not bright flavor - more flat.
