Brewed and sold since 1876, "The King of Beers" is the largest-selling beer in the world. Budweiser has been the world’s best-selling beer since 1957, and is distributed in more than 70 countries.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2005 Ok, Ok, I had to get to 100 beers, and I’m stuck in Tallahassee with limited availability, so I’ll rate this. (After this, I have to go on and sample all the stinky, 3rd-world beers made with questionable water.) This is my baseline beer. I was merchandised very well by the local AB distributer, so I’ve got to make this the midline. You all know what this is like, so I won’t comment any more.

No malts, no hops, just...nothing. Even my brew kit beers are far superior to this. ’King of Beer’ ???!??

The ’King of Domestic Violence’ is what we call it out here in L.A. Many know it as a beer that makes you ’snap’. We notice we stopped fighting at bars/clubs when we said NO MORE BUD! But it is a decent beer once in a while... Just make sure the wife isn’t with you that night if you plan to drink more than a couple.

You know, there’s a funny thing about Bud. When I first started drinking, I loved it. Then when I expanded my palate, I hated it. Then during my junior year of college, I went and bought a 12 pack just because I was going to some redneck party, and the shit was good! When I have the $, its not a rarity to find me with a 12 pack of this shit in the fridge. The cans are cool, its a classic, and I’ll tell ya, nothin makes ya feel like more of a cool hick than guzzling this stuff. BUT, this may be the KING of hangover beers... be warned.

Definitely better than Bud Light. After trying Falstaff recently I realized just how accustomed we had all become to this kind of average stuff. If you want a better tasting beer for 1/3 of the price of Bud, try and find Bud’s old St. Louis rival, Falstaff. A-B really doesn’t seem to care about it’s quality anymore as it has the US market locked up. Sad, really.

Re-rate: I wanted to do a back to back today between this and Miller High Life (I am bored). This brew pours from the bottle a sparkling pale golden. The 45 second average sized head is white and frothy and has piss-poor lacing. The nose is so clean and neutral it is almost undetectable. I got a hint of yeast and perfume. The sweet light flavor is somewhat cloying and very very shallow. The sweet finish is gone in the blink of an eye. The light watery palate is very fizzy and finishes slightly dry. Doesn’t hold a candle to Miller High Life for someone on a budget. *Original Rate 2/28/02 5-1-2-1-7; 1.6* This is what you drink when they have nothing else on tap ’cept Bud Light. I almost laughed when I poured this, it had the appearance of a yellow orange champagne. ’THE KING OF BEERS’ this is not. A quickly diminishing small frothy head. Looked like it belonged on a cappucino. I tasted a hint of something, it might have been malt. I tasted mostly bubbles. Little irritating bubbles.

It’s Bud - nothing more, nothing less. A good party and concert beer. It’s quantity not quality where this beer is concerned. Most can go through a 12er of this like a fish through water.
