Poured this Adjunct Lager from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a clear straw color and produced a decent head, poor retention and left no lacing on the glass. The aroma of this brew is somewhat skunky, fermented grain? Light in body, this lager has a very watery and thin mouthfeel- Sweet cooked corn, some slight hop flavor and mild bitterness. Overall, not a very good beer, even for the standard of American Adjunct Lager.

Poured into a clean, soap-free pint glass. Foamy 1 inch head that falls to a 1/8" layer with small bits of foam clinging to the glass (could hardly call it "lace") Aroma is CO2 and cooked corn. Flavor is much like the aroma. There are other beers for the price that have more flavor in terms of both malt and hops. This is a faint corn adjunct and seltzer flavor with a dry, and veggie finish. Mouthfeel reminds me of cheap 3.2 beer. Watery and flat. Overall, this beer is not terrible tasting it just tastes like beer made for people who do not like beer.

Had a summer cookout so I got a 18pk of this for $10, was a good deal in my book.

A: This beer pours a very light straw color with a slight golden tint to it. Kinda looks like piss haha! Had a 1-inch foamy head which dissipated quickly into nothing, and no lacing.

S: Get some sweet malts along with some corn or rice. Also get some grains, but no skunky or metallic aroma since this is from a bottle.

T: Sweet corn and malts at the top, get a slight grainy flavor towards the end. Not much else here!

M: Crisp and refreshing if cold, comes across grainy and watery. Lots of carbonation give this beer its adjunct sweetness. Easy to drink and after the first couple, it gets even easier.

O: For a Macro, its not bad. I personally like High Life, but I would put this a slight notch above that. I havent had regular Bud in a while so hard to say if its better than that. But good for cookouts and enjoying after working in the yard or something.

This is probably one of my favorite commercial beers. It's very light and very drinkable. The main difference between this and Budweiser is Busch is made with corn and not rice. Makes it a bit heavier than Budweiser, yet still a very light, pale lager. Taste is light, a bit of citrus, but mostly corn. Pale, pale, pale yellow in color, I would recommend this beer for something with a heavy taste like pizza or hotdogs. Something that beer goes good with, but something you don't really want to waste a great beer on.

Pours a pale yellow color with a bubbly head that disappears rather quickly. Scent is mild with wheat and some slight citrus hints. Taste is weak, thin, and grainy. This one of those beers that I call “Beer Flavored Water.” On a hot summer day I’m sure you’ll be thankful to have a Busch if you are out of every other form of liquids but that’s about it. Not even a good cheap beer, for the same price you can get Pabst that actually has some flavor to it. Now try to imagine there is a Busch Light, Blah!

I might be the only one on this site to say so, but a camo can makes this beer taste better than it is! Overall, you get what you pay for and this is a cheap beer, but their marketing dollars work on this hunter. Oh well, sometimes it is nice to enjoy a low end beer, in my opinion there is no really bad beer. If you haven't try the camo can!!!
