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-Busch’s 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.

Sampled at Bockyhorsey’s Bocky Bash on 7-5-08. Number 600! Thanks Bill, though I’m a little curious why you had this in the house... As for the rating: Anheuser Busch, using detailed and proven scientific methods, discovered everything good and desirable about beer. Then they invented a way to remove all of it. This is the result. Cheers!

Can shared with tupalev - courtesy of biegaman. Actually looks OK at first - nice golden colour with a large white head - but the head quickly disappears to a thin, scummy layer. Aroma of rotting vegetables and chicken fat - ugh! Body is sticky and greasy. Flavour tastes like slightly rancid chicken stock mixed with the water that corn has been boiled in. Absolutely vile.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2008
Can (12oz). Courtesy of "Grampa Jan" - rating #3100. Light gold pour, looks oily and dead - large fluffy bright white diminishing plastic head. The aroma is very unpleasant, even when damned cold - pesticided grass clippings, hot PVC, metal and corn silage - if I’m honest, maybe a hint of clover. The taste is fricking brutal, though - corn, plastic, urine-soaked newsprint, hummingbird feeder water and weeds, aged in a dumpster in full sun then lightly flambeed. Thin, flat, harsh, fake - ugly aftertaste - utterly worthless after all.

Gorbalev (2905) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2008
Can courtesy of GregClow. Now this is what you follow up Hopslam with! Medium light yellow, big white head that fades quickly. Vegetable, spoiled meat in aroma. Tastes like swallowed toothpaste only carbonated. Awful.

12oz can-pours a disappearing white head and yellow color. Aroma is grain with slight sweetness, spice. Taste is grain with slight sweetness, spice, thin/watery. Nothing bad, just not much of anything.

blankboy (5948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2008
Can -- courtesy of biegaman. Fourth beer of the "Not-Very-Good-Beers-Tasting" - Day 1. Pours a clear gold with an average size crazy-bright white head -- looks a little unnatural. Aroma: Oh god, how does one describe this? Garbage for sure, some sewage, lots of vegetal notes, grain and burnt stuff -- best I can do really. Flavour’s a little better, thank goodness: Watery, grainy and vegetal. Light bitter-like finish that is awful and quite unpleasant. Light bodied. The aroma is downright offensive and the flavour is bad -- why would someone drink this regularly? It boggles the mind.

ChainGangGuy (4347) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Appearance: Pours a lightly effervescent, crystal clear, golden-hued body with a small, white head. Smell: Sourish, corn-hinted grain nose with some light floral notes. Taste: Thin-tasting blend of boiled corn cobs and grains with a mild, fleeting sweetness. Hint of flowers. No apparent bitterness. Water, water, water on the finish -- gotta replace the flavor and alcohol with *something*, right? Mouthfeel: Remarkably thin in body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Fairly non-offensive, bland, and watery.
