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.

355ml can. Typical ale pour. Tastes better than busch which is weird, it is pretty much just sweet water. Not good though.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2012 Can. Sour corn malt aroma. Light yellow with large but quickly dissipating head. Light cornflake/Captain Crunch flavor but not very sweet. Like that it’s not as cloying as O’Douls or Sharp - just a tad better.

12oz can, thanks to chudwick. Clear orange color. White head fizzes loudly. Fades to a minimal amount quickly, fading to nothing eventually. Wet bread flavor, maybe some corn. Not nearly as much of the offensive burnt popcorn flavor I was getting from other NAs that I recently tried. Maybe the can format has something to do with that? Another win for cans... Other than that, the flavor is pretty minimal. Carbonated water, with a touch of beer flavor. I much prefer this to the other NAs though because it isn’t offending me, just very very plain. Stronger, kind of sharp forced carbonation impedes drinkability unfortunately. Light body. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter bite, touch of acidic. Overall, one of the better macro NAs I’ve had so far, but that’s not saying much.
