COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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."

Budweiser was never more than drinkable. But since the cost cutting measures have come into effect at Anheuser-Busch InBev this stuff has become trash. I drank a can of this recently and there is way too much rice adjunct. The beer is very unbalanced in terms of body and hop profile. It is no better on tap. When your light beer is better than your lager you have a problem: Budweiser.

Probably one of the most recognizable beers in the world. It actually has potential, but they mix too many different grains. Has that sharp ricey taste, which is fine for japanese beers like Asahi, but when mixed with corn kinda sucks. Better than Coors if that’s a compliment. Some tweeking to this recipe might actually make this something worthy coming out of America, but it’ll never happen so it’s a pipe dream....Cheers...

Can. Bubbly banana beer. The can says king of beers. My tongue says, I don't think so. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Refreshing beer with other grains but barley. Cannot well be compared to German beers. Otherwise: American interpretation of a "Vollbier", what can go wrong if you take water, malted grains, hops and yeast. Taste: taste of beer - but with an own note by other grains. Refreshing, good. (If you want to taste bananas, caramel, hazelnuts, strawberries, butterscotch etc. as many raters do - just put these together with beer in a blender. This is good beer, but due to other grains not to German law and standard. Very American!)
