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.

(can) Clear apple juice body with medium white head. Aroma is faint, corn, mild sweet, artificial, slightly soured milk. Taste is minimal -- medium sweet corn, finishing with an unpleasant "filling without substance" feeling. Very light body. I cannot imagine a worthier beer for #2000 -- thanks so much Dan.

Can from Krogers. Clear pale color with a minimal frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Light grainy hop aroma. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a light sweet finish of short duration. My expectations where met.

12 ounce can courtesy of my landlord. Pours a clear amber color with a large frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of grassy hops and sweet malts. The taste is sweet malts, faint cracker notes. Thin bodied.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 So this is the supposed worst beer on RateBeer? I’ve had a lot worse, mostly brewpubs that put nothing less than an abortion of a beer on tap. See... the more ingridients you add to a beer, I believe the worse off it could possibly become. Therefore, if you don’t put a lot into a beer, like Busch NA, I don’t see how it can really taste so damn awful. The Lost Lake I had the other night was worse than this. Now, I’m not saying this is anything great, no way. The nose is still pretty putrid, full of straw, corn, and fuel (butane). Frothy, fizzy, pale, thin, oily, tastes a little bit like celery. Bad, but not the worst. That title belongs to Molson 0.5 and the Groggs beers (all of them).

This is just Busch beer witout the alcohol. The only time I ever drank this was in a dry titty bar, and I paid 3 bucks for a bottle. Just another reason to hate Augie Busch.

jercraigs (7691) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2008
2008-08-24. Crisp transparent yellow body that manages a decent albeit short lived white head with a swirl of the glass. Muted aroma of grainy straw, similar flavour of dilute straw and grassy cereals that are fairly washed out. Vaguest touch of bitterness. Palate is thin, but surprisingly decent for a N/A. At least its not skunky. Wisely chose to depart from it before it started to warm up. The cold is your friend on this one. Can, c/o Biegaman
