2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
25 oz. can. Tasted blind alongside Coors Original and Natty Ice. This seemed to be the freshest of the three with a born on date of 8/21/13. It pours a light yellow color… slightly darker than Coors and about the same as Natty. Disappearing white head. The aroma is almost nil with a touch of pils malt breadiness and no hops. No off aromas. The flavor is bland and pretty dry with no hops, just some very light bready malt and slightly less sweet than Coors but not as dry as Natty Ice. Doughy in the finish. This does seem fresher than the other two, but much less character than either. Not offensive, or even bad, just boring.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
16 ounce can. I tried to give it a fair shot by pouring it into a nice, tall, Speigelau, 17 ounce lager stem glass. The aroma actually pops out quite a bit: grain mill fog, malts and corn syrup. It wasn’t really off-putting. Appearance is clear yellow, bulbous bubbles floating around inside, fluffy white head on top. It tastes really grainy and corn-like. If you mixed water with pulverized Special K cereal flakes, voila. Palate is light bodied, watery, but surprisingly mouth coating flavor, mild carbonation. Overall, Busch is helpful because it provides a baseline-reminder of what a 1-point beer tastes like.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Can. Not wanting to insult my host I drank a can. Aroma of grass, thin watery taste, very light body, active carbonation leading to a brief watery finish.

Fizzy, yellow, skunky whiz. Smells like a wet broom. Tastes like a dirty, wet broom. Excuse me while I go dump the rest of this swill...

Can. Ok I’m slumming it. Pale yellow head. Decent head. Taste is very watery. Aroma is very weak, straw. Not much

1 was the lowest score available in ratings. It deserves a 0. Flat tasting watered down swill. I even turn this stuff down when it’s free. One word..."sucks"

Not very good. If your looking for a cheap buzz it works well. Great for beer pong .

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Firestone restaurant pint glass
From: Cherokee Market Beer & Wine in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $3.99 for a 6-pack
Purchased: Aug. 23, 2013
Consumed: Aug. 23, 2013
Misc.: Born date of April 19, 2013, which is 126 days from today (the can says the freshest taste is within 110 days)
Poured a golden urine clear color with three fingers of light-white head. Decent amount of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Very little lacing along the sides of the glass. Below average retention.
Smelled caramel, honey, cereal, grass, bread and corn. Not too bad for the style.
Tasted a bit like the nose, but not quite as flavorful. Got honey, some fruits (banana, apple and kiwi), caramel, corn and grass.
Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Abrupt finish. Somewhat refreshing.
I have to say, not too bad for the style. One of the better American Adjunct Lagers I’ve had and much better than what I remember from when I was drinking this in high school and college.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Of all the horrible American horse piss lagers, this is my favorite... for what that is worth. Had a little more color and body than Coors or Miller, but still water ed down and tin tasting. Drinkable, barely, if it’s cold and its hot day and no micro brew is available.
