Pours a very light yellow with a white head that doesn't stay around long.

Smell is malt , corn, hay, popcorn.

Taste, what taste? Very bland, maybe the slightest hint of corn, and not much else.

Feels like carbonated water.

Can you say bland and tasteless? Beers like this make me appreciate the good beers all the more, this has very little taste, and what taste it does have, is nothing to write home about. No wonder craft beers are so popular.

Finger and half, quickly gone to nothing though. Clear, light straw colored body.
Smells like bad beer breath. Really, it does.
Tastes like water, a mild (the mildest) bitterness and more water.
Moderate to high carbonation. Light body.
Another "nothing" beer.

Anheuser Busch : Busch Beer

APPEARANCE: Pale straw yellow , perfectly clear ultra filtered beer. Minimal head on what otherwise looks like a macro lager.

SMELL: A handful of dirty pennies with metallic aromas and perhaps some sweet cereal grains.

TASTE: Cereal grains and generic malt flavor upfront with a loose crispness. There is a flash of leafy processed hops and tame bitterness. Finishes with a slight tang.

FEEL: Light bodied, higher carbonation, only slightly watery.

OVERALL: Generic lager from the mega conglomerate. Still, it is ok for what it is. You could do worse.
