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. Budweiser leads the U.S. Premium beer category, outselling all other domestic premium beers combined. In fact, one in almost every five beers sold in the United States today is a Budweiser.
"We know of no brand produced by any other brewer which costs so much to brew and age. Our exclusive Beechwood Aging produces a taste, a smoothness and a drinkability you will find in no other beer at any price."
"Brewed with 100% natural ingredients. We use only the finest hops, barley malt, rice, yeast and water. We craft and age Budweiser using time-honoured brewing methods."

Basically this is alcoholic soda. Works great in biker bars or when engaged in activites where you’re sure to get some motor oil in the can, such as working on your car in the driveway. A good beer if for no other reason than it allows the existence of the Budweiser bikini.

The King of Beers? Hardly, but the king of marketing keeps this less than palatable stuff in bars and supermarkets from here to Timbuktu. Little taste to speak of, no body and a less than appealing finish. It is a very democratic beer, though--everyone can enjoy its mediocrity the world over.

My first taste of beer was a Budweiser. I still feel the same way about it. It’s not the worst beer in the world, but why drink it when there are so many better ones out there? It’s smooth enough, not skunky, but the taste is too watery and weak for me. My mouth tastes sour and dried out after 30 minutes or so. It’s American beer for the masses, but it’s not for me.

Personally, I think original bud is one of the best american beers.

Nothing like some FGP’s to keep the CO2 in the beer.

Seeing as Gusler threw a new rating in, I thought I would too. Is this the worst beer in the world? No. It is what it is. A straight-forward, easy drinking beer. Does it have much in terms of taste? No. But it isn’t awful either. I have never tasted a skunky Bud. It is about as clean as you can get. It tends to leave a very dry mouth in the finish, but it doesn’t gag you. I don’t understand how it is the best selling beer in the world though, but who would’ve thought its Light brother would be #1 in the U.S. Its easy to pile on because its so big everywhere.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2004 Last sample 01/13/02 The beer after its pour from the 12-ounce brown bottle sets in the glass an unclouded light yellow with the head modest in size, frothy in texture and the color a bright white as it dissolves quite quickly the lace a thin sheet. Nose is malt and clean, fresh with the start lightly sweet with fair to middling rice profile, the top skeletal in feel. Finish is stern in its acidity, the hops apropos to the style, dry aftertaste, it is what it is a “mass produced beer”, and at one time many years ago, it was my beer of choice.

Another example of Anheuser Busch screwing up another beer. Truly awful taste, too watery, and I would rather drink milwaukee’s best than this, Why this is considered the king of american beers makes me sick to my stomach.
