Not the worst, but not the best beer on the market. Decent cheap. Better than Natural Ice and Natural Light.

Serving Style : 16 oz tall boy can.

Appearance (3) : In the can, but appearance tends to be a pale straw yellow with a large and quickly receding head when poured. Trust me, I know these things.

Smell (2.5): Crisp, clean water. Faint corn, yeast, barley, rice.

Taste (3.25) : Out of the can, it's much better. If you're pouring this one into a glass, you've got the wrong idea. Sharp carbonated water hits first with a rush of faint corn and rice malts, leaving with a faint yeast and dry finish. Real easy to drink.

Mouthfeel (3.25) : Sharp carbonation, painful almost...but then it turns to a smooth, creamy, yet watery brew. It goes down so easy you'd barely think you were having a beer. In fact, it's pretty much like comparing skim milk to whole milk.

Optional extra category :

Drinkability (5) : FIVE. Easy to pound in any situation.

Overall (3.13) : Pounders are best. It is, for sure, a crappy trailer beer. It's got that cheap, bottom of the vat character and skunk flavor. With all that being said, it's extremely easy to drink and I can pound a 16 oz can easy. No sweat. For those evenings (or days, or nights) I feel like a beer that goes down easy and still provides some marginal flavor, Busch is a sure ticket. Good for absolutely nothing else, but what it does, it does with honor.
