Busch Beer to me is probably one of the more average beers I've had. There's really nothing that truly stands out nor offends. Not to say its a really bad beer. Just more forgettable. But at $4.99 for a 6pack of 12oz cans you can't go wrong in this case. Appearance wise it looks like a pale lager when poured into my Beerfest replica 36oz boot. Very similar to other beers like Rolling Rock, Budweiser, PBR, etc. Smellwise its rather weak. Slight bit of barley but not too much going on. Tastewise its rather smooth and watery. Almost like a light beer but more ballsy. And between you and I...it goes down easy while not provoking a hangover the next day like many other cheap beers. Overall its a good goto beer for budget minded folks looking for a smooth inoffensive beer. In most cases you will get more than your moneys worth.
