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."

Tastes like an old book you’ve found in the attic after a decade or so - musty and old. I’m sorry, but if this is the King of beers, we’re in serious need of a government over-throw.

Bottle. Not much character in any of the cathegories, but a decent *beverage* to go with food.

Puszka 0,3l, w samolocie. Zapach słodki, slodowy,typowy dla lagera, ale nieco lepszy niż w polskich koncerniakach. Klarowne, wysoko wysycone w wyglądzie i odczuciu. Złota barwa, drobnobabelkowa piana, całkiem ładnie obkleja kubeczek, jest dość stała. W smaku pustka, słodka gazowana woda. Dość orzeźwiające. Brak goryczki, brak posmaku.

Mousse blanche presque inexistante. Couleur jaune ambrée. Arome de chêne très intéressant. Goût de chêne sans aucun arrière goût. Très pétillante. Bonne bière commerciale qui a son petit côté unique.

Taste is similar to sour milk mixed with expired oatmeal. Overall an okay cheap beer.

YigSvartka (91) - Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 17, 2014
Transparent white/yellow appearance obstructed only by a significant amount of bubbles. Stunted aroma consisting of malt, grain, and a wee bit of honey. Some metallic notes as well. Thin, watery, and light. Initial tingly carbonation sensation is immediately enveloped by a mildly sweet grain taste, finishing with absolutely no hops and a rather dreadful lingering cardboard/corn taste. The King of Beers indeed.

Hmmm, is it good or bad that I have not rated this one yet? Or is it worse that for a night cap, all the store at my hotel had was a 6 pack of this? Or is it even worse that I bought it? Hmmm ...

What can be said about such an empty tasting beer? At least it was so cold you couldn’t taste quite how bad it was.

Over the last few years in the UK, respect for beer has increased exponentially. Even somewhere like a bad bar / nightclub / hotel / student union etc, will usually stock one or two drinkable bottles at a bare minimum. So it seemed almost an affront, when I found myself at a themed nightclub event in Shoreditch of all places, and the only beer available was canned Bud. I don’t think I’ve drunk this beer in at least 10 years. As expected: barely existent malt flavour, no hop character, very thin mouthfeel, little bitterness, little of anything except water and CO2. On the positive side, the extreme wateriness of this beer means that the cardboardy, skunky, metallic nastiness is also much less pronounced than in, for example, its European mass market competition like Stella and Heineken.
