A smooth, light golden lager with 55 calories and the crisp, clean finish of Budweiser Select. Select 55 is brewed with caramel malts and a blend of imported and domestic hopping. Select 55 has a light golden color and offers aroma notes of toasted malt and subtle hopping.

Select 55 Calories is the best tasting light beer out there. At only 55 calories it has just enough beer taste (and alcohol) to satisfy me. Sure, I have had more robust/malty tasting beers (with significantly higher calories) but even they get kind of "regular tasting" after a while. Since I like to have two beers each day with my dinner after a long day, Select 55 is the right choice for me.

Better than most ultras, and a good bargain for the calories. I would rather drink Mich but for way less calories, itís a good trade off.

Absolutely nothing to say about it. Had it after a hot walk. It was refreshing as a cold beverage but that is it.

Yep, a clear bottle. Smell is Ok, perhaps some tartness in the olfactory. Very light flavor with lots of sizzling carbonation. Very light indeed. I kinda liked the bud select as a lager but perhaps this is a little too light. Not bad tho, goes down very easy. Almost like soda water to an extent. At 2.4%, I bet you could drink this all day and not catch a buzz. A true sessional beer if you can put up with the lack of personality in the flavor. I truely am surprized that this is less than 3%! It does seem to have more bite than many other light beers. Virtually no aftertaste except for watered down pale lager. Enjoyable to an extent and it is rather refreshing for a change. A better tasting beer than most other lights.

Pale. Crisp, refreshing, rice. Not bad. For 55 calories itís much better caloric value then the other offerings from BMC.

In the can at my cousinís wedding. More flavor than I was expecting and definitely more flavorful than Michelob Ultra. Mild, not nonexistent malt. Decent body. Spritzy. Fine. This was advertised as Bud Select 55 but the can says 99 calories, so who knows. Definitely better than expected.
