COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Busch NA is a fully-fermented, non-alcohol version of Busch beer that offers a smooth, full-bodied, malty flavor. All of Anheuser-Buschís non-alcohol products are brewed, fermented and aged to full maturity. The alcohol is then removed through the use of low-temperature, low-pressure distillation. This extremely gentle process allows the alcohol to be removed without heating or cooking the beer, which retains the full, rich and delicate flavor and balance of our non-alcohol brews.

12 oz can pours yellow with a white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste is the same but more like water.

Ughsmash (7121) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Roughing it in the Northwoods.. 12oz can. Poured watery straw golden with a well-retained white head. The aroma picked up wet corn, honey, and a touch of cardboard, with odd, dark floral accents.. non-offensive, but very little to it. The flavor found garbage water over the aforementioned adjuncty malt-like stuff.. tacky and dry on the finish. Watery on the palate, with higher carbonation.. not a horrible flow to it.. this met expectations.

4/8/12. 12oz can. Clear light golden pour with a surprisingly nice off-white head that is thick and creamy but fades fast and doesnít lace at all. Plain aroma with basically nothing at all. Very light grainy, metallica, slightly appley aroma with nothing else really. Tastes like water thatís been run through a rusty pipe for about a decade... lingering anesepticy, kinda graininess. Very thin body - feels like lightly carbonated water. Lingering corn chips on the exhale.

Can to Shaker: Pale watery gold....sudsy white head. Nose is grain. Taste is cornflakes, water, cardboard ....and....water. Take this for what itís worth, but this is probably the best NA out there. If there werenít 100,000 + other beers to drink, Iíd have one. Seriously, good to keep a few around if you want a beer-like drink and canít have one. I used to keep them around for when my minister dropped by. He was diabetic, and ....well... a minister. But he still wanted a beer!

can, clear yellow with light white foam, aroma and flavor is actually somewhat fruity and some body to it, finish is pretty off putting however

FROTHINGSLOSH (4895) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2010
Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a medium golden color with a huge yellow-white head that lingered. The aroma was faint citrus and dry malts. The flavor was dry and a touch malty and nutty. The finish was short and watery. Very light body. Amazingly this was better than the full alcohol version - but still far from good.

scooterbub (823) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - DEC 1, 2009
Can. Pours a decent golden-yellow with a thin white head that lasts. Very similar to Busch, but has a little more bitterness to it. A pretty good N/A, since it is comparable to the regular version. That may seem like a bad, but for me it is a good. Refreshing and rather enjoyable, when one wants a beer, but canít have one.

Can: Oh, Boy! Pours a color that resembles yellow snow more than anything I can think of. Not much of a smell, kind of sweet, and not much of a taste. Didnít offend me, but if I had to make a choice Iíd take H2O.

Overall Impression: Busch, you are killing me with this crap, I canít say Iíve had a whole one, but Iíve had enough to know I donít like it.
